Another Proxy fight, anyone?

My move towards Ginnheim is an already scripted at home scenario to annex the strip of unincorporated land which likes between Frankfurt's fields and their holdings along the Nidda river to their north.
While this is fine, hysterically, historically, these areas were part of the Duchy of Hannau and Hesse=Darmstadt. In our game, this also may infringe upon the claims and interests of Hesse Homburg ....
Now, even though Frankszonia is occupied by Gallia right now, it's army is built on the Prussian model and Hesse-Homburg along the Austrian ... something tells me that many of our players could field small forces of both mixes, no?
Perhaps a vunderful time bei alles could be halfed at Ficksnort?
Any victi ... uh, make that, volunteers?

PS .... All this depending upon the agreeability of Hesse Homburg, of course ... after all, we do have treaties of non-intervention in force ...

My health has improved, unfortunately catching up on commitments in "real life" is a horrible distraction to other, more important things ...

Don't you love Frank's Minden Minatures? The wife even likes them as sculptures and thus lets me buy them ... I've got a 60 man musketeer battalion and am working on a grenadier battalion and a 12 man fusilier company ...
I'm going to try to collect 12 man companies across the board!

Arthur,

Are you getting your Mindens for BAR or KK? Or a mixture of each?

BAR uses 48 to 60 man battalions,
while K.K. uses 12 to 24.
Thus four or five K.K. units = one BAR unit. By using a "break down" system of basing, I find it easy to move from K.K.'s two line format to BAR's three ... of course, it would b even easier if I had the facilities for single man basing with movement trays as Protz recommends!
