A letter

The Gallian crew, fed and re clothed , are being transported back to Gallia. Their Captain carries a note from Von Bergman as follows:

Gallian Friends !

Greetings in the name of the Duke. We send our felicitations to those friends we met at Versailles and wish to ask for aid for our forthcoming voyage to the Shetland Isles. We wish to establish a base there prior to the winter storms. This base will act as a place to begin our conquest of Northern Brittania in the company of our Galian Allies. Send word at your earliest convenience - we are ready.

Von Bergman

Oh oh, does this mean that lots of red-coated troops need to be painted very quickly?

Unless 'Northern Brittania' = Scotland, as in 'North British Dragoons'? In this area *and* in 'our' fictitious Europe, even ECW Scot lancers can turn out as heirs of the Border Reivers...
Sorry for the rough suggestion?

Invading Britannia, cheeky lot aren't they? :)

Beware the power of the Royal Navy. Gallia lost a whole fleet to them last year.

hmm, this explains why I have been so busy getting my 1/900 scale naval units ready....
