Hi Ed,

Great looking color combinations for the uniforms! Very snazzy, and they'll look awfully sharp of the wargaming table. I wish my computer skills were up to doing the same for Raubenstadt (Sigh). Say....since Hesse-Fedora is based upon the films and characters of Bogart, are the Police known as the (Sidney) Greenstreet Runners?
If so, are they keeping an eye on Horst von Stein? His brother, the Colonel has re-hired his former foodtaster.

Yours,

Martin

Martin,

All of those uniforms were made using David's Not By Appointment templates, and then Windows Paint. It is EASY...believe me!

And Stein has been foisted upon the Homburgers (in a soon to be seen sequel).

Very impressive army and a realistic organization. Was Brunswick your inspiration?
Best regards...Bill

Bill,

Except for the Landgrafin's Fusiliers (my first true ImagiNation unit), this is in fact the Brunswick army.
