El Ejercito Magnifico: Regimental Guide (2)









Today's entry is Regimiento linea no 2, La Lutefisque. This is one of the oldest regiments of the Amarillo. Founded by a minor don, Esteban de la Pesca, prior to the coming of the Yayubetja to Scandalusia, such a regiment would normally be found among the Blanco. However, de la Pesca was among the first to cast his lot with the Yayubetja, and this (coupled with the bulldog courage of the regiment) accorded it a place among the Amarillo.

Although La Lutefisque no longer enjoys the reputation it earned in the Guerra del Union, it still is regarded as a solid regiment, particularly on the defense.




Depicted here are the line infantry and grenadier uniforms, along with the Leibfahne and Regimentsfahne.

Again, I like it. The 'golden' coats should look outstanding on the tabletop.

And I very much like the flag.

So good-looking indeed!
With so glamorous Line regiments, one wonders what the Guard may look like?

Thanks for sharing - & looking eagerly to enjoy more,
