Du gamla, Du fria

 Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord
Du tysta, Du glädjerika sköna!
Jag hälsar Dig, vänaste land uppå jord,
/: Din sol, Din himmel, Dina ängder gröna.:/
Du tronar på minnen från fornstora dar,
då ärat Ditt namn flög över jorden.
Jag vet att Du är och Du blir vad Du var.
/:Ja, jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden.:/

So beeing a patriotic Norwegian, I offcialy have to depise all things Swedish, and hate those bug eyed inbred yellow and blue subhumans. So Fuck you Sweden!

Now that I forfilled my duty. I can say that like almost all people living with in 90 minutes of the border, most of my familiy is quite resently swedish. Most of my dads family still live on the border. And my last name was given to my family by the swedish king, so on my fahters side, I was swedish just 100+ years ago. My moms side is also swedish/danish, tho slightly longer back, and we still have swedish familiy I think. and my moms maiden name sounds very Swedish, and my original dads name was writen in Swedish Så Fjèll and not Fjell as i do now, it was my fathers mother that changed it to the norwegian spelling. So it's perfectly possible that some of my ansestors were fighting with Carl XII, or some parts of my mothers side might be fighting aganist him as Danish, but I have very little control on my family back more then some 140 years. So have no idea about were I was before then(except that some 15 000 years ago my farthers side hanged around the lowcountries(or what would become low countries some 14 000 years later) My mom is more spread out and can be from Turkey, Balkans, eastern europe, russia, sibira ect. Again some 10 000 years ago. 

Anyway got a rather decent size order from muskteer miniatures, I also got flags!!
So not only can I finish the base and figures, but can actualy get flags on them, way to few of my units have flags or colors. 

I wasn't sure about red and blue sweeds, as my girlfriend says thats not very swedish, while blue and yellow is swedish right away.

 But they look great, I'm also happy that I have found a cool new red, I've always "missed" one red I have brick red which is great red shade, but all my other reds have been quite light and so the diffrence between the shade and other reds were to big, but now I've found one that is right in the middel, a rich red. that looks just great.
My swedish force so far, 2 battalions and 1 gun, I have another battlion to be painted, and 2 squdrons of dragoons.
