Generating Families & Personalities?

Several months ago someone posted a system for generating Families and Personalities for the major families in an imaginary country.

It was different from the Tony Bath version (which I have) but I do not recall who posted it.  Would someone please direct me to it?

Image of French military mules, WAS

A detail from an engraving reproducing the painting of the Battle of Assietta during the War of Austrian Succession by Hyacinthe de la Pegna. A zoomable version of the whole painting is available here; full of 'authentic' looking details such as the ersatz gaiters of canvas.

Unfortunately it seems that the only images in full color available on the web are incomplete, showing only the upper right part with the death of the French commander the Chevalier de Belle-Isle:
 The place where the original painting is exposed is unfortunately not given on Wikipedia, so the colors of the mules' harness, decorated eyelids, bells... remain so far a mystery.
As far as I know no manufacturer offers such gloriously decorated military mules (which according to a contemporary text were 'punished' by being deprived of their bells and plumes if disobedient!). Of course they would look more 'warlike' without their eating bags!

Thanks to 'Ralphus'who posted the link to the engraving on the 'Wars of Louis XIV' blog . I already knew this image from "L'histoire universelle des armées', Laffont, 1966,

Reichsarmee training question

Morning all!
I looking for information about the Reichsarmee. How often did they meet as batts/regts for training?At what level did they train -company,batt or what? Information re the different contingents and how often they came together and the officers and their background. Did the soldiers practice on firing ranges/pardadegrounds/wasteland/heaths in their local communities? The more I think about it how little I know about the day to day working of the reichsarmee at a low level...
Thanks in anticipation
Alan

Fife & Drum 3rd Continental Dragoons or Your Imagination's Light Cavalry



3rd Continental Dragoons - New Fife & Drum Figures



3rd Continental Dragoons (L-R) Trooper, Officer, Std Bearer, and Trumpeter (click to enlarge)

Fife & Drum Miniatures recently added the 3rd Continental Dragoons to its range, along with the previously released 1st Continental Dragoon, the British Legion (Tarleton's) dragoons, and the British 16th and 17th Light Dragoons. 

The group of four figures are done in "charging" poses and are shown on some of the new horses that Richard Ansell made exclusively for our AWI range of figures. They can match up against our British Legion and British 17th Light Dragoons in either the Pennsylvania - New Jersey theatre of operations or with General Greene's command in the South.

Along with our other AWI dragoons, the Fife & Drum cavalry would make for colorful light cavalry in your own Imagination's army.




Officer (left) and trooper charging (right)



Standard bearer (left) and trumpeter (right)

The new product codes for the 3rd Continental Dragoons are as follows (sold as single figures including the horse):

AC-018    3rd Continental Dragoon Officer
AC-019    3rd Continental Dragoon Trumpeter
AC-020    3rd Continental Dragoon Standard Bearer
AC-021    3rd Continental Dragoon Trooper, Charging

Figures, including horse, are $6.00
