Frickland's new colors


Two cavalry standard bearers, one with the flag of the Fricklandes Heer and the other with the 1st Cavalry Brigade's. Both are hand-painted on thick paper.


The army standard has the Fricklander Cross and 'Periculum in mora' written on it.


As the two standards were completed I decided it was time for inspection. The regular foot in the front will be reinforced with four more stands, so the 4th regiment will have its full crew and the 5th will be added.


Only two light infantry stands are ready but that is balanced with the dragoons.


1st Grenadier Brigade on the right flank with its two regiments.


Artillery with four regular stands and one of the Strates-Zygnyack Batteries.


The Cavalry Brigade is currently made up of the Garde du Corps, the Zwetschkbad Kürassieren and the Zwetschkbad Jägers zu Pferd. The Freiheitskorps are attached to the brigade but not parts of it. By the way these three stands can dismount in battle but the infantry stands for them are not shown.

  2. Your force is mounting by leaps and bounds and the enemy is scratching its beard and starting to seriously wonder about Frickland's arms buildup! Hail Frickland!!

  3. It really helps me to understand why you guys paint armies when I see how impressive they look together on a table. I really appreciate the work that went into handpainting those flags.

    Sorry I'm late, things have been difficult and I'm running behind.
