After a break of far too long we got the Great Northern War collection on table recently and had a massive game, lots of pictures and game report to be found here:

Great looking game! It's a period I know nothing about but the figures were fascinating!

The Swedish king was a great warrior. But he lacked diplomatic talent. Try this for a start https://www.military-history.org/feature/battle-royal-charles-xii-of-sweden.htm
And the glorious general led the advance
With a glorious swish of his sword and his lance
And a glorious clank of his tin-plated pants. - Dr. Seuss

Now that was a battle.  Well done!  Tough luck for the Swedes, though...
