The Free State of Schnöselburg

Welcome to the Free State of Schnöselburg, a territory of the world of Valon! I have to admit I'm not that much of a fan of modern history, but when Christian showed me the dogmen figures from Alternative Armies, I loved them! Here are the first few recruits of the Royal Guard of the Free State of Schnöselburg:

The ranks are as follows:

  • Rittmeister Heißhund (captain)
  • Grenadier Schnüffler
  • Musketier Leckenstein
  • Musketier Sprungstien
  • Musketier von Schüssel
  • Trommler Schwanz-Wedelte
TIP: check out a German-English dictionary for some interesting name translations!

The musketeers come from this set of line infantry and the captain is in this set here. The grenadier is from this set and there are plenty more of them waiting to join the ranks!

I've also got a jager coming along soon! He's from the infantry set. Pic to come shortly!

Got some more plans for the RGFSS, so stay tuned!


  1. A Great looking start. I think you have done a great job on the Yellow uniforms - something that I always have trouble with.

    I look forward to more.


    1. Thanks, Tony, for the kind words and for sharing my LAF post on the Notables forum! My husband showed me that you'd posted a link to it :-)

  2. Lovely work and really nice uniforms. Enjoy Flintloque.

    I think I have something of Christian's that will make Flintloque players worldwide smile in times to come.


    1. Thank you for the kind feedback, Gavin :-) Yes, I can't wait to see how Christian's figure turns out - very excited!

  3. yellow is always a tricky colour to work with so well done, also i notice the eureka frogmen on your bloglist and i wonder if you have noticed the toadaroni yet (another ferach client state)

    1. Hi Elton, thanks for the compliments! Yes, I love the Eureka frogmen, so much character ... I did notice the Toadaroni - some of those figures are on my wishlist for later. They're funny little chaps, but I'm sticking to dogmen for now :-)
