Painting guide, part 4: Private 1890-1910

Here is the fourth part of the painting guide series. This time it is the m/ä (model older) uniform. The figures are not supposed to be used for this uniform, but since it looks so close and it was still in use during the 30s I will show it.
There are some small differences, to make the jacket you have to remove the four pockets on the m/23 uniform.
You can find part 1 here, part 2 here and part 3 here.


  1. Were any of the pointed helmets retained in service after 1890 from the previous uniform?

  2. Yes, as parade helmets. Not in the field.
    But in a civil war, equipment will run short very fast so I suppose it would be ok to use them in setting like that.
