Monrovian Army: allies and foreign volunteers
As the work on the Monrovian army has begun (see the previous post) - so the first of the posts on the Monrovian Army, this one is for allied contingents and foreign volunteers.
Shown above are:
1. Artillery Battery - from Hesse-Limburger
2. Infantry from back to the front :
Volontaires de Noverre (white coats)
Wilde Geese Irish (red coats)
Principality of Munkasse (blue coats)
units are unchanged apart from the battalion from Munkasse which has
had some headgear swaps (half the battlion - new tricorne heads to
replace grenadier heads) and new flags (using some for a Wurtemburg infantry regiment).
A blog documenting the encounters between the armies of the imaginary nations of the Kingdom of Wittenberg and its neighbours (including the Kingdom of Monrovia and their allies). My inspiration being drawn from 'Charge or How to Play Wargames' by Young & Lawford and 'The Wargame' by Charles Grant.
I have a number of other period interests for wargaming (from ancients to WW2), these have their own blogs, see below.
