Freshly Varnished Fusiliers. . .

Here's the freshly varnished third company of von Flickenhoffer's (du Lepp's) Fusiliers, drying and just about ready to be carefully removed from the bottle caps and placed on the table in the next room of Zum Stollenkeller. Now it's onto a general/ADC pair, to be followed by the fourth and final company of this monstrous unit of RSM fusiliers.

Word reached Stagonia's General Drednoz late this evening that a third company of the du Lepp's Fusiliers will reach his position late tomorrow, meaning that he can begin his attack on Saegewerkdorf and its nearby sawmill.

Fortunately, this news comes just in time as an undependable company of allied infantry defected to the Stollenian side early this morning! This latest treacherous development means that both armies are more or less on equal footing with their infantry and artillery. Stagonia's only appreciable advantage would seem to be in the area of cavalry.

When informed that he now had some additional troops at his disposal, Stollen's General von Drosselmaier put down his spoon, carefully dabbed at a fleck of softboiled egg yolk on his lower lip, and replied, "Ah! At last, some of those troops on the other side have seen reason! Now maybe we can get this battle underway and expel those vile fellows from the Grand Duchy."
