The Duchy of Strackenz exists, in this version at least, to enable me to put together a model army based upon the descriptions of his ideal force found in 'Reveries' written by M. de Saxe in 1732. I hope that the readers, regular or occasional, will contribute with suggestions and comments on all aspects of this quest. There are three main areas that I wish to cover. These are: The uniforms - these are very subjective and any help you can give would be appreciated. The Sculpting - as I intend to sculpt and cast the figures any help, hints, tips or ideas will help. The Organisation - again taken from the composition of a Legion in 'Reveries' probably the best description but still open to some interpretation.
When working out something, I will post any relevant quotes from my version of 'Reveries' to enable those who do not have a copy to become involved. However, there seem to be various translations of this work so if you have one that gives a different quote please comment upon it.
Whilst the ultimate decision on everything here will be mine any debate about details etc will help make that decision so please get involved. To help matters along I will run various Polls on different topics so you can give a quick response.
