Vergoldeten Troops: Hesse-Engelburg

It's taken me a while to get the time to finish putting together this image, of the six Hesse-Engelburg battalions in operation at Vergoldeten. This also represents my first use of David's Highlander template, and a nifty little feature of Gimp allowed me to fill the kilt with the actual MacArthur tartan.



Clicking on the image should bring up a larger copy.

Very pleasant synthesis!

Fitz-Badger of the Soweiter League upraceed you by a fraction for the title of "1st Imagi-Nation ruler to use of of David's Highlander templates", but as I understood it his were just a 'try' not depicting a 'real' fictitious unit.

Compliments,
Jean-Louis

We in Saxe-Bearstein have heard rumors that the vile Stagonians will be mustering some Scots in the future.

Meanwhile, we appreciate the uniforms and flags depicted here.

P.s.: the Lintzer Musketeers look great with purple facings!

The Sumpflowen and Niederwiesen are new creations, right?

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

Jean-Louis asks: "The Sumpflowen and Niederwiesen are new creations, right?"

That's correct. I had to add them after I realized I'd not defined enough musketeer battalions to account for the troops I'd used. :>

It's sad to think that Scotsman would stoop to work for such vile creatures as Stagonians. Are you sure they aren't Irishmen disguised by kilts? I mean, the Irishmen will even work for Bad Nachtschwein.

to Jean-Louis,
The Saxe-Urquhart Highlanders are "real" (for the day I get suitable minis to paint). The plaid musketeers are not. :-)

Those kilted types rumored to be in the employ of Stagonia are probably Sassenachs! Anyone can buya kilt from those woolen shops.

Bluebear Jeff said...

Buy? Rumor has it that the vile ones have managed to STEAL a large shipment of plaid cloth.

A valid point. I suppose even Vile Stagonians can appreciate the fine thing that is a man in plaid.

Snickering,
agreed; I think that to 'look right' a Lace Wars army must have a large majority of units in tricorn.

Fitz-badger,
which of the uniform variants on display did you choose for The Saxe-Urquhart Highlanders?
More precisely: green or red 'facing' color? (Then, what about: red Grenadiers, yellow [or light blue] fusiliers, green Chasseurs?)

Just curious
Jean-Louis

Nice! Although I have to agree that they cannot be real highlanders - look at the length of the man's head and neck. They're probably misplaced Masai warriors or something similar, I'll bet... ;-)

The Markgraaf is jealous and wants to know if you are shipping any uniforms along the Rubberneckar River any time soon? Our wreck....err salvage and recovery people are standing by.

David said...

Sorry - missed this. Was the comment addressed to David Linienblatt of Tippelbruder?

David.

I think it was for me, regarding shipping any of the uniform designs above. :>
