The Duchy of Noverre, has had a presence in my Imagi-Nations for a few years as an ally of Monrovia. This currently is a couple of regiments - both SYW French.
I thought it would be nice to expand the Duchy's forces into to a small army. Rummaging in boxes for little used stuff has located almost three regiments that can be re-used with some minor changes and new flags. I'll also be adding some artillery and cavalry (the cavalry will probably be some of my generic SYW cavalry).
The current infantry regiments Lorraine and Montmorin

continued from the previous post....
Having seen off an attack by the Tatars; the Pandours and Grenadiers form up into column and move off towards Minsonda as quick as they can, supported by cavalry. However Begovian light cavalry appear ....
The Wittenberg cavalry withdraw; the Begovians in disarray fall back.
With no sign of a forthcoming attack from the Begovians the last units of the Wittenberg army are able to cross the river safely.
1. This last game for this mini-campaign took about 30 moves overall.
2. The game was not just about the fighting but also about the logistics of getting the army across the river.
3. If half of Begovian infantry hadn't panicked (each unit threw a Double '1' for their morale check due to a routing unit nearby) then I could have continued with a game to assault the town.
4. Approximate Wittenberg losses for engaged units...
- Rutenian light horse 65%
- Dragoons 25%
- Kurassier 10%
- Pandours 30%
- Grenadiers: 30%
