La Marne - This is the infantry La Marne. When originally conceived, it was titled "La Marine" (hence the blue coats as opposed to the Quaker gray worn by all other line infantry), but became the oxymoronic given St. Maurice's land-locked status, and the fact that there isn't a navigable waterway in the whole country. La Marne brigades with Dauphin As the St. Maurice brigade III, and has been in existence for about fifteen years. In accordance with the royal decree of 1758 (right now), the regiment will add a second battalion, in the continental style, hopefully before next Summer.

I like the look of the unit.

Fun how often anomalies (like Marine) can be turned to advantage and add to the "reality" of our ImagiNations.

A very good-looking unit, as always, with an amusing (nomenclatural) background.
Will the 2nd battalion have a vivandiere?

Looking forward to the 18th C. zombies!
