The Titler Independent Border Battalion.


I was going to have another Grenz Regiment but when I found out about the Titler Independent Border Battalion with their light blue uniforms (and a name worthy of a 'Carry On' film)  I couldn't resist painting them instead ! .


The figures are of course Irregular and have just got based and varnished in time for a game tonight with my wargaming colleague 'A'  when they take on the Sardinians .

    I'm looking forward to seeing the new units in action.

  5. That's amazing. When were they founded? Could they be fielded in a Napoleonic army?
