von Albtruam's Musketeers


Major General Alberecht von Albtraum raised the first regiment in the recent expansion of Pappenheim's forces, these forces have been raised due to the expansionistic policies of the Duke's neighbour the Elector of Vandenburg, King of Brussia Oskar the Great.

 Commanded in the field by the Major General's son Lieutenant Colonel Karl Ernst von Albtraum, the regiment is yet to face the enemy in combat though he has been drilling the regiment extensively using 
Vandenburg training methods. 

How effective this training will be on the Dukes subjects remains to be seen, though reports from the regiment are encouraging.  These reports are being closely followed by Erbprinz Rupert who has fought against King Oskar twice and escaped to tell the tale.

Due to the rapid and large increase of Pappenheim's military the regiment contains large numbers of foreigners from across the north of Imperial Pangaea, Huhnerlanders, Straslunders and Dachsdorfer's make up a significant part of the regiments manpower. 

 Even some Dal Riadan's have made their way to the regiment, of note is Hauptmann Colin McQuack commander of the third Company who served with the Bonnie Prince in his disaterous campaign to regain the Dal Riadan throne.
