Danish troops 1660

Don't really know anything about this image. I found it on Tony Barton's 1/6th scale ECW matchlock musketeer article - which is well worth a look at.

The picture is part of a painting by W. Heimbach entitled, "Arvehyldningen 1660" or "Homage to King Fredrik III 1660". The uniforms are probably those of the various Copenhagen civic guards and represent uniforms worn during the 1657-60 wars with Sweden, not those from the Scanian War.
