The Essling Militia drill.

 The Essling Militia, some of whom were involved in ambushing the Altstein Jager at the Battle of Eisenburg-Essling five years previously, form up.
 A bit of a rabble but they're keen.
 The battalion is forming up in defiance of the ruling Altsteiners but are emboldened by the death of Ludwig and the calls of Prince Johan to rise up and regain independence.
These chaps were painted many years ago.
