Munchausen-Spurhund-Jungen Grenadier Guards

Elector Donal was very impressed with the service of this regiment during the last war.  He has granted them permission to change the colour of their uniform from Enteburg's sky blue to the white of Spurhund-Jungen.  They maintain the traditional dark green small clothes of the Spurhund-Jungen infantry regiments. 

The regiment say active service during the Italican campaign and against the invasion of Enteburg by the forces of the King of Polonia.

They suffered heavy losses against the Alban's in both the battles fought against them and where a much reduced unit at the battle of Zollmen.

The regiment is commanded in the field by Colonel Joseph von Eisenlowe, who began his career as an officer in Vorlund service before returning to take up service as a captain with the Electoral Guards before joining the Munchausen-Spurhund-Jungen Grenadier Guards with the rank of Major.   

It was at this point that the regiment began to rebuild to full strength following it's exile from it's homeland.

The colonel is an avid hunter and has become good friends with Prince Louis and often joins him at his hunting lodge in Ganstal.  He prefers to hunt for waterfowl, though has been known to stalk deer in the woods near his home in Hahnkante.

The second regiment of marines in the service of the Elector, the regiment was raised from the riverfolk of Ganstal valley. The regiments inhaber the Comte de Monte Christo arrived at the Electors court several years ago and cut a swathe through the young ladies of the court, he has become a firm friend of Prince Admiral Deuteronomy and it was through his influence that the Comte was appointed command.

The Comte de Monte Christo
The Comte has proven to be an effective leader and his men have come to love the dashing young officer.  He prides himself on the unique look of his regiment being the only line regiment in green and also the only regiment to wear the Schomberg helmet. 

In addition the Comte has engaged african drummers for the regimental band, further adding to the regiment's exotic look.

The Comte has taken steps to train his men in small boat operations despite Enteburg being landlocked.  In light of this the elector has offered their services to the directors of the Huhnerland und Enteburg India Company to operate as marines upon their ships.

The Elector Returns!

 It is with great delight that I can announce the elector has given order for this neglected site to be updated once more.  He has once again poured funds into the archivists coffers and they have once again begun work.

The elector has commanded that the first units to be looked at are the Munchausen-Spurhund-Jungen Grenadier Guards in their new uniforms and the Comte of Monte Christo's Marines as well as updates on the forces of the Electorate.
