New Recruits 5

Well, having the wargames board tied up and unusable has certainly given more time for the painting board. Recruiting Sargeants have been travelling far and wide, with beneficial results.

First off, the Icenian Crown has added a couple of clans of rough Caledons to their ranks:

First, Campbell's Highlanders, and next, McDonald's Highlanders (abandoning their ancestral Golden Arch to bear the Union standard for once)

Next, the forces of Kruppfalz recruiting drive:
Third battalions for the Ostergotland, Garde zu Fuss, and Oldenburg regiments, plus a detachment of engineers (far right)

A brand new regiment of 3 battalions, Schaumberger-Lippe, with a new combined grenadier battalion, Die Krup Grenadiern. (this is designed to also fit into Charge size regiments, 3 line companies and a grenadier company, of 12 each)
Plus 2 garrison battalions, and a couple of stray companies to expand existing battalions

Next, a Brigade of Imperial Reich forces
From the Margravate of Glacier, Margrave Franz-Josef and the Regiment Franz-Josef
Plus, the Waldenstein and Kurmainz regiments

Next, the Colonians have drummed up some forces from the state of Lenape: 2 battalions of Lenape Continentals and one of States Guard

Finally, new forces for Skyria:

Three battalions of the Isenburg regiment
A battalion of Isenburg Grenadiers, wearing the old-style mitres rather than bearskins

And 3rd battalions for the Waldeck and Nederlander regiemtns, and a couple of companies of Deutschmeister Regiment to bulk them out.
