Unknown Visitor to the Summer Palace

Who is this visiting the King of Wittenberg ? Nobody is sure - there's a lot of rumours around the palace. (Figures: coach/horses from Minfigs, driver Front Rank, Footman converted Sash & Sabre)


  1. Could it be a courtesan from the Duchy of Mieczyslaw? Or perhaps the Electorate of Vulgaria? KIdding aside, that's a really nice looking coach. Didn't MiniFigs produce their own drivers and footmen to go with it?

    Best Regards,

    Stokes Schwartz

  2. While it is true that most Mieczyslaw troops wear blue, it is generally of a dark hue.

    It looks possibly to be a Bavarian uniform . . . and since Bavaria is an ally of the Stagonians, that would mean trouble.

    Perhaps it is a good thing that your country is mobilizing.

  3. Note:

    As Stokes pointed out the Minifigs coach comes with driver and footman - I didn't use them as they were a bit small in comparison to the other figures I use.


  4. That's an excellent coach! Might just pick one up myself...Napoleon could do with one of those.

    Best wishes


  5. Yikes!

    One of our envoys just returned from a visit to the Grand Duchy of Stollen and the secret visitor's uniform bears a striking resemblance to that of the officers of their Leib Grenadiers.

    Cornflower blue coat with red cuffs and turnbacks . . . the resemblance is remarkable. Check the following dispatch for confirmation:
