Across the field, the Stagonian army arrives and begins sorting itself out. . .
Here, we can see the Army of Stagonia as it arrives on the field and begins the complicated process of assembling itself into battle formation. From the look of things, this will be a tough nut to crack for Stollen!
Through a handy spyglass, an officer attached to General von Drosselmaier's retinue across the field spots the Stagonian commander and his staff. Aren't they resplendent in their white coats?
Stollenian agents have indicated for some weeks that the Stagonian army was large, and this has proven to be the case. Here, you'll note, are five companies of infantry, a large regiment of cavalry, and a full battery of artillery.
But the Stollenian army has not been asleep all this either! The final drafts of troops ( a drummer, two sergeants, and two officers) have joined a newly raised battalion of engineers in von Drosselmaier's army. They need only two coats of Future/Klear acrylic floor finish before they are finished.
