The Leibgarde is commanded by Lt Col von Matthaus.
First, the drummer does not have reversed coat colours.
Second, the regiment has both its white flag and its blue flag featuring the Vaubarian coat of arms in the centre of the wreath.
Other regiments have a white flag with the Vaubarian coat of arms in the centre of the wreath (with regimental device in top corner near flagstaff), and a blue flag with regimental device in the centre of the wreath, and no coat of arms.
Other than that, the Leibgarde is a standard line battalion. They will not gain any elite classification on the tabletop.
Here is the whole Brigade on the march.
IR 1 = The Leibgarde (white cuffs)
IR2 = Regt Dremel (yellow facings)
IR 3 = Regt Breitner (red facings)
… commanded by Brigadier von Schweinsteiger.
Figures are Front Rank. Painted by yours truly, as were the flags.
Given that it's a fictional country, I wish I had chosen a simpler coat of arms/ flag design!
Still, it passes the time whilst watching the cricket world cup... or Aston Villa's glorious exploits at Wembley last Monday. Some people thought I wouldn't get through a blog post without mentioning that fact. They were right!
That's all for now...
Excellent display of fine wargame figures, Love the colours Phil.ReplyDelete
I think I will be copying these regiments, thanks for the inspiration.
Thx Willz. Always happy to inspire! PhilDelete
Lovely looking regiment Phil!ReplyDelete

A splendid brigade Phil...ReplyDelete
You really can’t go wrong with sky blue...;-)
All the best. Aly
Thx Aly... The blue is certainly very pleasing on the eye. Cheers! PhilDelete
Very nice indeed.ReplyDelete
Thx Paul. Not as many as the number of Marlburians in your collection, but making some progress. PhilDelete
Marvellous Units, Phil! I look forward to seeing them in action...after all, looking this good, they must perform like elite grenadiers!! ;-) :-D Cheers, Rohan.ReplyDelete
Thx Rohan. You and I both know that the nicer troops look, the less likely they are to perform well on the tabletop! We will see! Cheers. PhilDelete
Those are very nice! I like the blue!ReplyDelete
Cheers Andy. Somehow thought you'd like the blue! PhilDelete
Absolutely wonderful Phil, the flags are really something to behold. As for Aston Villa I think you are forgiven for mentioning rare events, so make the most of it while it lasts :-)ReplyDelete
Thx Chris. Enjoyed painting the flags really. In fact, enjoyed painting the whole of this force. Cheers. PhilDelete
