Sachsen-Wachsenstein Marches off to War

Parading before Duke Siegfried, the Sachsen-Wachsenstein Contributory Kreis Regiment prepares to leave the duchy on its way to join the Imperial Reichsarmee for the Texas Big Battalions game at MilleniumCon on Saturday next (Nov. 15).

The regiment is composed entirely of Eureka Seven Years War Saxons, except for the 3-lbr battalion gun, which is from Historifigs (old Jack Scruby line).

As usual, please click on the pictures to see a larger image.

Here we see the entire regiment paraded before the Duke.

Led by the converged grenadier company, the regiment begins its departure from the Paradeplatz.

The grenadiers are then followed by the regimental command group and the musketeers drafted from the Musketeer Regiment von Schlichting.

As the musketeers file past the Duke, the 8-lbr position gun begins its wheel into the column, leaving a gap for the Duke to join the march.

The first of the fusiliers drafted from the Fusilier Regiment von Pflugk now begin to wheel in behind the 8-lbr gun.

Here we can see a close-up of the Duke, the 8-lbr and its crew of four gunners and one fusilier seconded from the infantry, and the lead fusilier company.

The 3-lbr battalion gun is now marching in the departure column, with the second fusilier company bringing up the rear of the column.

These stalwart lead soldiers will soon take their place in the annals of warfare in Imagi-Urope as they help defend the Empress' possessions from the invading Germanians and their allies.

I really enjoy seeing how different gamers present their troops . . . and the terrain ideas that I can pick up. Thank you.
