Not in that uniform!

Some of the recruits (figures) that came out to join the ranks of the Eross Cadets we turned away because they were not in a regulation uniform. Major Sophia Ritter turned the ladies away because their uniforms exposed their midriffs. (This is nothing against the guys at eureka minis)

So if anyone wants them let me know and we can work out a deal.


  1. Of course they are welcome! Navel wargaming has a charm of its own, and are we not in the Age of Enlightenment and thus Liberation?
    What proportion do they represent? Are they few enough to be sergeants / Corporals / anspessades?
    Or maybe they are new recruits still in training?

  2. An experimental 'lightened' uniform for a detachment to be sent to 'hot' oversea stations - Sunahra Raj maybe?

  3. Indeed an uniform variant fitting for India!

    When developing two Imagi-Nations, it's gratifying to interlink them: any progress in one of the projects benefits to both.

    Re the uniform of the Cadets, I know it's basically the (stern, of course) uniform of an orphanage, but it's a little... gloomy. What about white facings (collar, lapels, cuffs, turnbacks)? Or 'baby pink', as a reference to their feminity (they are soldiers, now, no longer assisted orphans... 'Baby blue' coat & waistcoat, 'baby pink' facings...

  4. Can you not add a bit of greenstuff or something to cover the bare midriffs?

  5. I have decided this uniform is acceptable for our female troops in the Indurian East India Expedition.

  6. Wise decision! Native costume is adapted to local climate, and Europeans are well advised to be inspired by it. Heat strokes, dehydration... can cause more casualties than actual combat. Don't forget to have the uniforms made of light cotton, not of heavy wool as in Europe.
