Like the Lorrainer horse, featured in my last submission, the Alsatian horse regiments in the Hapsberg Imperial army had a good reputation on the battlefield, supplementing Spanish and Imperial armies in late seventeenth century campaigns in the Low Countries and along the Rhine. As such, the squadron is a good inclusion for my Spanish and Imperial forces focused on the fictional Flemish Free-City of Laarden around 1688, drawing on the uniforms and standards of the time (when I can find them).
What a fantastic unit of cavalry Sidney. I love how their bright emerald green coats are set against the bay and grey of their horses. A very pretty unit of Imperial horse.
Sid, it's been a real treat to watch (and read) the history of Laarden further unfold over these past three months. As an observer I have see that each unit and personality has been carefully considered and created to fit within this wonderful, quasi-fictional universe. It truly is an amazing project. In addition, it has been great to see you having probably your most productive Challenge to date. You were on fire my friend, and am happy to concede the Renaissance Duel to you and your battle weary brush. Well done!
With a few points added for the lovely banner, lace and feathers I put this at 145 Points.
Now, once the dust settles, lets find time to open a bottle of Rioja and get back to finishing those 2mm Thirty Years War rules, shall we? :)
