British Army

32 posts in this topic

I think my little army has grwon a bit now. im starting to set them up in regiments or companys, i dont know what to call them yet.

the Imperial guards regiment must be a royal one since they have blue eupalettes. and the imperial soldiers sailors are a artillery regiment. i also have a scouting party made of hunters and forestmen. they are famous for taking out enemy officers and ambushing , and Scouting to find the enemy :)

*spits out of coffee*

BY GOD MAN!

That's a fine regiment you have there sir! And a seriously LARGE one if my eye's don't deceive me. And I thought I was doing well with the South Essex! I'm seriously impressed and seriously scared silly! (alliteration ftw.)

It would be an honour to fight alongside you Sah!

That's an impresive army Tjordenskold, it sure would beat mine easily...... in numbers...that is :-D

Like the way your fort looks, but is it not possible to build in grey or white to make it look more accurate?

Keep it up! *y*

great army, mate, but i don't understand why you have robin hoods in your army

Maybe not so wrong, since the light infantry was mainly built up from hunters (Americans, Switzerland people, also Austrians). Exspecially during the investigations in America before 1800 hunters were often recruited ...

Awesome army you have there Mr. Tordenskjold, how many figures do you have in total in your army?

Well Napolean should be some way off Northern Norway :-) so hopefully you'll be able to get away without a fight but anyone who's the enemy of the French is most welcome to call for my reinforcement, not that you'll need anyone to fight your battles for you with a force like that!

Hell, I think I can count my troops on my fingers. I'm guessing the forestmen are Sharpe's Chosen Men? Something like that?

When you have an Empire that spans a quarter of the globe which you actually earn by defeating local armies and securing the oceans through hard work, then maybe we'll stop. All the countries we owned, we only lost America, and that's cos the French helped you.

The British army was one of the best armies of that era, the basic front line soldier able to fire three rounds a minute unlike most other nations. It's men were brutal up close because they were the scum of British society (thieves, murderer's, Sean Bean etc) and had some pretty secret weapons (Case shot I believe was one, where the shell would bounce above the enemy and only then blast musket balls at the enemy ranks, and then of course, the Congrieve Rocket which you use in your anthem "Red Rockets glare")

So yeah, talk about one war, one little bar fight. We defended Europe from France ruling it, rescued our arch enemy Spain from defeat and bought about the modern era.

Anyway, I still love this army, and I love the fort behind it *sweet*

Hi folks. last time i counted my men i had 147 imperial guards (all the men wiht blue eupalettes. )

40 imperial soldiers

37 impeial sildiers(sailors)

and 8 scouts . i used forestmen as scouts , thay are a wild buch , can operate allone or in small groups.

and i also have some marines that i use onboard my naval ships.

the fortress is called the black fortress just because it was made on sigth by a very dark (or black) kind of stone.

Rhanks for all the nice comments . make my day feel great to read this :)

Also adding to that american culture

Reminds me of the scene from The League of Extraordinary Gentelmen when Special Agent Sawyer

of the American Secret Service just shoots lots and lots of bullets hoping to hit.

And Quartermain shouts:

"If you can't do it with one bullet,don't do it at all"!

Not being bad but thats the trouble with americans you just keep firing till you hit. You dont actually aim, Its much quicker.

Don't worry, I have no plans for coming to that cold country of yours :-D

Impressive army! I just love to watch these armies, can't get enough of them.

Combine that army with the firepower of the fortress and you'll have a serious obstacle for any invading army.

Is the fortress near the sea? Some bombing from the sea followed by a frontal attack maybe....

They certainly do stand out compared to the other regiments! X-D

But why did you choose Forestmen out of all the mini-figure types you could have chose?

A fine army i must say. Good work. But how could it be that there's only 3 cannons in th army? I see you've got loads of them in the fortress, so why not build larger a regiment with cannons?
