This is a Finnish light cavalryman from the 30 years long war in the 1600’s, used by Swedish army. The legend tells they were so fearsome and brutal that catholic church of Germany made this prayer. “Oh lord, deliver us from the horrible army of the Haccapelites”.
They were equipped with two pistols and a sword, and their tactical use of two kinds of weaponry and also horses, made them near invincible. Of course this is just my romantized vision of the Haccapelites, but hey, it’s the Independence Day tomorrow :D
