A Few Panoramic Views of the Positions. . .
By popular request, here are a few panoramic "artist's renderings" of the respective armies as they take their positions outside Saegewerkdorf, scene of the coming battle. In the distance, to the west, you can see the vile Stagonian army, still sorting itself out from the forced march to the field. And in the foreground, the Army of Stollen, under the craven General von Drosselmaier, awaits its fate.
Here is another sketch, this time of the Stollenian positions just to the east of Saegewerkdorf. Someone must tell those two sapper officers and that obnoxious little geezer on the drum to climb down off of their bottle caps. Why, it just isn't very manly!
Finally, here is a third sketch, by an obviously tipsy artist (You just can't find good help anymore, can you?), of the Stagonian positions to the west of the village. From bottom to top, the vile and varigated army includes: two squadrons of hussars, a two-compant battalion of grenzer, a four-company regiment of grenadiers, a two-company battalion of sappers, two-companies of a fusilier regiment, a two-gun battery, an independent company of infantry, and a three- squadron regiment of horse grenadiers. General von Drosselmaier across the battlefield certainly has his work cut out for him!
