the 1st corp,

Brigade of Hussars, Earsingvold regiment
Linton Nach Ouse Regiment

Five Battalions of our glorious line infantry

1st Earswicken regiment
2nd Earswicken regiment
1st Wiggstien regiment
1st Haxbistade regiment
2ndHaxbistade regiment

Two Grenadier battalions
( the names and history are still being translated from the old Jordvicken tongue)

a battery or two of tweleve pounders

the most Royal Brigade of Curassiers

And a regiment of those new jager trained chaps, just a load of gamekeepers if you ask me. not like my day, none of that running around hiding behind trees when i was a your hussar blast 'em.

the force which is at present able and willing to come to the aide of any honourable cause, after some negotiation of course.

Only Saturday last, I surely rode in my carriage through your fair realm, passing by most of your units barracks. A pleasent place which I hope to visit again soon.

Perhaps one of your young artists will paint examples of the uniforms of your troops so that we will be able to identify them.

Yes -- looking forward to viewing some examples of your intended uniforms for the troops of Jordvicken. Now, to a different subject -- Is the old Jordvicken tongue closer to Danish or Swedish?

Best Regards,

I do indeed know the fair Minster in your capital, along with many other fine old buildings.
I also have fond memories of a disreputable house run by Herr Guppy located just outside of your city walls.

Indeed we all would like to discover the uniforms you designed for your 12-14 regiments!

Even before painting any mini you could share your designs with us via colored drawings? You could use the SYW uniform templates, even if as computer-illiterate as myself. 'East Riding Militia' owner of the
Bishopric of Uber Gruntshuffen printed one (enlarged), hand-colored or painted it and had the image numerized back to post it on his blog. The result is striking!

This said, a simple (tabulateed, even) description with an indication of the type (nationality) of the minis intended (& thus the 'cut' of the uniform) would be very welcome!

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

Good point, though sometimes it's hard to arrive to definite conclusions
