Hesse Holstadt becomes Hesse Boozewick

The Covenant of Colon announced the death of Prince Holstadt at the Battle of Hoegaaden against the forces of the Reich Duchy of Beestein. Since the Prince had no heirs his lands have been ceded to Lord Calvert von Boozewick. Paintings of the new Hesse Boozewick army will be posted over the next week as our spies submit sketches to the Reichstag. However, we now know the composition of the Hesse Boozewick army:

Commander in Chief: Marshal, Lord Calvert

Brigadier, Prince Jack Daniels
Crown Royal Garde zu Fuss, Glenlivet Fusiliers, Meyers Musketeers, Schenley's Musketeers, Jagermeister Jagers

Brigadier, Baron Johnny Walker "Black"
Glenfiddich Grenadiers, Seagrams Fusiliers, Murph's Musketeers, Ballantine Musketeers, Jameson Jagers

Brigadier, Graf Hiram Walker
White Horse Grenadiers, Chivas Regal Cuirassiers, Teacher's Cuirassiers

Brigadier, Graf Jim Beam
Dalmore Dragoons, Dunhill Dragoons, Dewar's Uhlans

Captain Morgan will serve as the Chief of Artillery

Sounds like these leaders and units will be full to the brim with good cheer!

And let me guess, Captain Morgan will have a "leg up" on everyone else, eh?

PS, for those who don't know, Captain Morgan Rum advertisements always show those enjoying their rum with their legs up (as if on a cask of rum) or a barroom railing.

Ah, the fortunes of war, they scotch the best laid plans. As always, we'll have to just gin and bear it. ;)

WHAT?!!!! Are there to be no Jagermeister Jagers in this "well oiled" machine?
