Rebellion !.

 The young and handsome Prince Johan Jorge arrives to lead the Eisenburg-Esslingers in their bid for independence from the County of Altstein since the death of Graf Ludwig in March 1755.

 The old Regimental colours are brought forth in a hasty ceremony of allegiance to their cause.
 The Colonels are unanimous in their support for Johan and are eager to throw off the Altstein yoke.
 What a dashing young man the Prince is.
After 5 long years under the heel of Ludwig there is much bitterness toward the Altsteiners and with the tyrant dead they must seize the chance to rebel.


  1. Indeed the young prince looks... imperial!
    Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war.

  2. Purple, eh? Signifying porphyrogenic aspirations, perhaps? Imperial pretensions? Regal ambitions? Aim high, bonny lad, and win or lose, your career is sure to be meteoric!
    'He either fears his fate too much
    or his deserts are small,
    who fears to put it to the touch
    to win or lose it all.'
    (James Graham, Marquis of Montrose)

  3. Ahhhhh, a dashing young leader, a cause, a box of dice, a shelf full of toy soldiers, what more could one want?

    Knew that peace stuff couldn't last for ever.
