Boogie Woogie Bugle Boys - One of the really great things about being royalty in a petty monarchy is the opportunities for self-aggrandizement. His Majesty has always been concerned that his subjects, as well as anyone else who might care, should know of his coming well in advance of his arrival. With that in mind, he has seen fit to create a detachment of herald trumpets to announce his movements and location. Clearly this little unit will last only until one of His Majesty's "loyal subjects" takes a pot-shot at him while on parade.

I've had these Suren trumpeters around for a while and couldn't think of anything better to do with them. Observant as you are, you will have noticed no banner attachment to the bugles at this point. Sheer neglegance on my part that will be corrected in the not too distant future.

Nice. :-) They look very well fed; I'm sure that having pot shots taken at them (or taken at His Majesty and that are likely to arrive near or around them) will do them the world of good...

Cheers,

A nice colorful little unit there. Hmm... Perhaps some ne'er do well could bribe them to finish the royal fanfare with "Shave-and-a-haircut two-bits." Such a piece of lese majeste would have interesting repercussions! ;)

I wish I could find some infantry horn players ... then I could incorporate the "hoboist" into my Frankfurter units ...
Besides, our sausage merchants would not be happy if anybody shoots at the king's pot belly ....
