The Duke of Rutland's Bavarian Allies

Here is the finished Bavarian Troops that are serving with the Duke of Rutland's Royalist forces in the East Midlands. The troops themselves come from the town of Lenggries in Bavarian at the foot of the Alpine foothills. Them came over with Baron Hörwarth, a cousin and close friend of the Duke and are mainly his staff, groundskeepers and workers from his Hofmark castle estates. They came over to help the Dukes at his request as their skills in field-craft and shooting could help strengthen and train his own troops. However they were required to help with the assault on the city of Leicester and took the attack to the Socialist forces there, where they shooting expertise shows and cause a number of casualties on the defender there before receiving artillery fire from their own side. The force on is back at Belvoir Castle in Rutland building back there strength and training the Duke's troops.

There are still a couple of things to add to this that being two chaps with SMGs and a Flamethrower, but these still have to be painted. The figures are from Tsuba Miniatures and are very nice indeed and I look forward to seeing this range expand.
