Ministers in the palace suspect Grolstein spies are afoot. The king has been unable to post replies to comments on his previous message... a troop of dragoons have been dispatched to search suspected houses in the capitol.
(the reply to kind comments and inquiries on last post:
The figures are RSM Prussian hussars in mirliton with some modifications for standard bearers and officers. I might also add plumes to the officers.)

Spotted in training near Hohenfelde in the western reaches of the Konigreich, a new regiment of hussars. These fellows have already established a reputation with the locals in the area as a hard drinking outfit and hopefully when their training is complete a hard fighting one as well. Rumors as to new black hussar uniforms are circulating. The regiment is recruiting on a two squadrons of 24 troopers each and three additional officers establishment making them capable of splitting the squadrons for special duties or operation as a large host of light cavalry if necessary. They are being raised to counter a reported new mercenary unit of lance armed Pandours hired by the Grand Duchess of Grolstein.
