Stagonian Infantry . . . for Now

Since we have been unable to obtain French-style uniforms from the usual source, it was necessary to obtain them from . . . well, let us just say "a former ally" and leave it at that.

Discerning observers will note the alternating fawn and chamois waistcoats and breeches. This is to facilitate telling units apart.

For example, the colors of the two garments mentioned above are reversed in the two battalions with blue and light blue facings . . . likewise with green. Orange facings can be mistaken for either red or yellow, depending upon the light . . . but not in the Stagonian army because of the difference in these garments.

So, until we obtain our rightful uniforms, we will use these.

I suppose just because one is a vile Stagonian doesn't mean one's uniform has to be vile in appearance. A nice array.
