    Default OFFICIAL: Corps de Conde for Russian service (unit pack)

    Hello All!

    In 1789, the revolution that began in France destroyed a centuries-old monarchy, plunging the country into an era of bloody chaos. Brutal struggle of the young Republic with numerous external and internal enemies forced to emigrate most disagree with the new regime. Once outside their homeland, the French royalists created a number of military formations for armed struggle for the restoration of the monarchy. The most famous was the Corps of Prince de Conde.

    Content Description

    This add-on introduces 6 new units for the Russian Empire: 2 musketeer regiments, 1 grenadier regiment, 2 dragoon regiments and artillery battalion. These units entirely represent Corps de Conde during its Russian service. The units are Prince de Condé’s French Noble Regiment, Duke de Hohenlohe’s German Regiment, Duke de Bourbon’s French Grenadier Regiment, Duke de Berry’s Noble Dragoon Regiment, Duke d’Enghien’s Dragoon Regiment and French 8pdr cannons.



    Theoretically, with these unit as well as with units of the main releases your will be even able to arrange authentic expedition to punish revolutionary scum (e. g. in Italy or wherever they arise ). Something like this:

    Thank you, I will definitely put it in my library. Unfortunatelly, as this book is quite old, some info is already outdated.

    It's amazing . Chic surprise!
    You did not find information about how it was with one element of this corps of immigrants - a white armband in honor of mourning for the monarch?

    "It should be noted that all the soldiers of the "Conde Army" were distinguished by one common external detail - a white cloth bandage on the left sleeve of the uniform. On its front there was an image of royal heraldic lilies (three from the nobles of all chips and one from hired soldiers), which were originally blue and then (from 1793) turned black as a sign of mourning for the executed Louis XVI. Such dressings emphasized the elite character of the emigrant formations and pointed to the unity of the political views of the “Kondytsy” 29.

    I have not studied this period in detail, after the adaptation of the military charter in the service in Russia.
    Interestingly, they retained these dressings or not ..

    Thanks. And no, I did not find any information neither visual nor written how it was with this bandage. From that article it is not really clear did they continue to wear it during russian service. As a sign of mourning for the executed Louis XVI was choosen black as regimental colour, I believe.

    Yes you are right . Although I will still try to find something with illustrations in the old editions about these notorious dressings. But I must tell you that your emigre regiments are a paradox. They completely and successfully replace Pavlov's "Prussian reform" of a later time. Great view .

    Exactly, with all those models which are already done, anyone interested could easly create any kind of unit from Paul reign by symply cloning and modifing texture (e. g. colours) up to the taste.
