Infanterie Regiment von Bacharach at Drill

SPAWNHEIM, Aug. 15--As negotiations with Duke Kristian von Pfalz-Zwiebacken proceed to determine the extent of his support for Duke Ignaz's claim to the Herrenschaft of Dolmen, the regiments of the Pfalz-Kognat-Obersayn Herzogerheer make demonstrations along the Waldrecker frontier to mask the true intentions of Duke Ignaz for the relief of Festung Dolmen.

Here, the entire von Bacharach regiment concentrates in the village of Spawnheim, now merely a strategic crossroads along the Waldrecker frontier, but the historic seat of the now-extinct, ill-starred Counts of Spawnheim-Obersayn, whose sinister reputation even today seems to cast a gothic shadow over the village.

Oberst Hermann Baron von Dornfeld, a rational and modern man, discounted the superstitious warnings of the villagers and bivouacked his regiment within the very ruins of Schloß Spawnheim, parading his men under the brooding walls of the fortress. Awaiting further orders from Generalmajor vom und zum Riesling, Oberst von Dornfeld then set pickets along the Höhenstraße and Kognat roads, and set his men to work salvaging a redoubt from the ruins, determined to hold the village at all costs.

Great to see your troops 'in their flesh'!

I wonder what the (quasi-vile?) Waldreckers will look like (templates, templates... [grin])?

Cheers and thanks for sharing,
Jean-Louis
