La Tour de France

Well after the lads had their day in the sun, their principal (but unprincipled) opponents should get theirs, I guess (in more ways than one).

Ladies, gentlemen, and Stagonians, I give you the Might of Arvergne -

Two cavalry brigades, one of cuirassiers and one of dragoons, both looking sadly bedraggled as they have shed numerous flags*. The hussar brigade is on the drill ground at the moment (waiting to be rebased from single figure bases)

The infantry, four and a half regiments at the moment, with the scurrilous Chasseurs Polonaise on the left.


The Good infantry - three regiments Hibernois, the Grenadiers d'Auvergne, and the (half-strength, like their Colonel) Grenadiers Dauphin


And finally (as always) the artillery

* Part of the moving house syndrome

Sadly I'm sure that the vile Stagonians are in league with these detestable scoundrels . . . troops who may look fine, but have vileness in their leaden hearts.

It often seems the case, the better looking the troops, the more malice it conceals!

(Miguel the Spanish Republican Roman, I'm looking at you!)

Little? Looks like big armies to me! LOL
Once again an impressive body of troops!
