Wien participates:

Let's see, there's Alte Fritz, TragardMaster, and my Wieners ... who else?

I'm going to have start a new blog anyway, I'd guess ...
But here's the primary people for the Weiners, who are the major competition for the Frankfurters ...

B: Wieners:

* Empress Teaser Hopsbier (flirtatious and tends to throw expensive parties, but really
cherishes her folks ... and her soldiers, especially the tall, young, athletic ones) ...
* Her protégé: Marsha, the Countess Dawn, considered by most to be an harmless coquette (who actually is a brilliant military tactician) who masquerades as a man in order to be:
* Maj. General Done: (2) Seems reserved and standoffish to his staff. He is extremely private
in his personal life and upholds very high standards of behavior. However, he often is
mysteriously gone when not on active campaign, and at these times nobody knows where he is.
He is known to be a confidante of the Empress and very influential in her program of military
* Feld Marshal Brownale (2) Boisterous and enthusiastic when in contact with the enemy. His
enthusiasm is shared with the troops with whom he likes to unofficially socialize. Has a
reputation for being able to rally units and to encourage dangerous assaults. He is a friend of Gen
Woad, the Baron Sipcup, or is that Hiccup?
* Prinz Joesipper: (0) hangs out with the cafe crowd. \
* Oberst Hasenpfeffer: (0) Impatient and peppery.
* Oberst Katzenhaus: (1) has also risen in the Wiener ranks due to exceptional services rendered.
* M. Gen. Schnitzelen: (0) classic case of prospering by being kicked upstairs.
* Oberst Spam: (0) is raising a jaeger regiment which he intends to flood into hostile areas.
* Waddle: (0)
* Schlogger: (0)
* Snorzen: (1) (a Baltic SoF)
* Wilhelm von Shlickt (1) : A freikorps leader, he avoids open combat.
His dubious reputation in small wars leaves a stain on the honor of the army ... Likes cigars.
A real Wiener ....
** Unfortunately, I did not get the citation for these, but I was reading something on the net and
ran across Graf Otto von Botelauden and Henrich Wallpot von Passenheim. So ...
* Graf Blotto von Bottleladen: (0) Middle aged, subject to wild mood swings, uses a prince nez
as it reminds him of the view through the bottom of the bottle or stein. While flagrantly
promiscuous on campaign, when at home or on any non-combat mission is notoriously
passionate about family and Frau. Actually, his income is derived more from a successful
tavern and inn chain / franchise than from the minuscule hereditary lands.
und ....
* Ernst Hallpot von Pissenhelm.: (1) soldier of fortune. Works on time limited capitularies
only. While rigorously loyal during period of contract, he has been known to refuse renewals at
the last moment. Otherwise, a good jack of all trades militarily. He has excelled at organizing
supply trains, depots, and hospitals. Details of his lineage seem curiously fluid.
* Riergard v. Rottenbrat: (0) Irritable, duelist, pettifogging administrator.
* Picklemany (2): Competent. Good leader, but tends to be conservative in approach to
* Blumentwit: (0) (Inspired by real, WWII German, Blumentrit).
* Grimsnifter (0)
* Sauerputz (0)

The Hungry forces include:
* Gen. Naggy (1)
* Eaterhasty: (1)

I should like to add for the Hungry forces one Prinz Robert Axe...

Frankfurter said...

Perhaps that should be spelled Prinz Robbert Axe?

Why notte?

Frankfurter, great to (re?)discover your Wieners! Now, inevitably, we wish / hope / expect to learn more about them (e.g., what about their uniforms? I know, it's an obsession -very boring for thepeople I pester).

Batrachia -that neighbor of the Soweiter League- Hesse-Homburg (potentially) and Saint-Maurice also field white-claded infantry.

Tradgarland and Mieczyslaw both appear to be Roman Catholic, but may be reluctant to side with Österreich -Tradgarland, specially!

Then, what about the Banat of Togaras, a likely ally to Österreich? An opportunity to ear anew from it?

Now, I remember that the Burtzenian infantry is also white-coated?

So many potential sources of actors...


MurdocK said...

Burtzenia is an Österreich 'province'.

Just have not gotten the blog roll started for them yet.

Frankfurter said...

Perhaps, it'd be clearer if I wrote it as Robber T. Axe...
Then again, given the quality of Frankfurter's competition, Rubber Axle ...
So far my Weiner's are in relatively recognizable Austrian White, but the Hungry Line is in several colors, a dull scarlet, dark blue, white and blue .... I'm going to try to use them in the Tipple Bruder battle ... which may get finished tomorrow, if not, it'll be next weekend (sigh)

And the Zichenauers?
Never forget the Zichenauers!

MurdocK said...

I have reviewed the list again and found some fresh inspiration from it. For the 'lace wars' protion of Österreich Über Alles I think we could certainly start telling stories based on these leading potentates!
