The Grand Duchy of Fennwyck

"The Empire is a large and diverse place full of minor kingdoms, duchies and baronies. For the past 500 years the emperors have maintained power by keeping all those princes, dukes and barons at each other's throats. They are allowed to own small, personal armies. These armies may be called up in an instant's notice to defend the Empire from its vast number of enemies, or used to settle petty grudges and territorial disputes between nobles. War, in the Empire, seems to be the pastime.
Fennwyck is a small Duchy of the fringe of the Empire with big plans. It is a foggy, dismal place, populated by people much the same. The current Grand Duke, Oswald the Bold, tired of being a backwater, has decided to extend the boundaries of Fennwyck. Better government through ruthless expansionism! Oswald has left the command of his armies to General Vanderwalt Klegg, an able tactician of intemperant nature."
Following an earlier post, most of our group is building their armies for Maurice. We have settled on each person taking a barnyard animal as their personal sigil. I have chosen the rooster (or cock) as it matches my Chinese zodiac symbol. Here's the army, their colors and standards:

Please grant us a detailed presentation of each army involved

Btw your new Maurice campaign fully deserves, if not a 'collective blog' à la EvE, at least a special 'label' to the corresponding posts; on all participating blogs, indeed (it can be done afterward using the 'edit posts utility, and it's not a chore if done before posts to be labelled are not too numerous).

Also, what about giving a list of all blogs involved? For instance I just discovered Essjam's one thanks to a comment posted on your blog.
