Prinz Rupprecht Volunteers

This is the next in the series and he is one of the Covenanter's German Volunteers that has come over with Prinz Rupprecht. Their will be more on the German Prince in another post but this chap came over will him as one of his loyal supporters and joined with the forces of the Covenant. Operating mainly in the highlands and islands of the north of Scotland, this chap wears the uniform of the German Army from the Great War. These volunteers are not supports of the current leadership in German and have come to the UK to fight the BUF and the Edwardites here so they dont get a foothold here.So here is the chap.

  4. Sorry to burst a bubble but I doubt that anyone who believes in the Covenant would support or even side with a Stuart/Jacobite Heir mate. Even more so as Rupert was a Catholic Prince so you might need to rethink this scenario i would say.

    1. Opps what can I say there Flags, I should of read the background in the sourcebook a little more as you are correct in saying what you said. Prinz Reppercht and his German followers are actually fighting for the Jacobite cause in the highlands and I will correct that when I write about that right Royal Prince. Now of course I will not say anything about the Covenanter forces fighting with Charles II during the ECW as that would be a cheap hit back, lol.

    2. Nah you are correct but the persecution under his Reign after he got the throne back would forever have the Stuart name followed by something more unsavory when mentioned haha.
