The birth of "The Eross Cadets"

Just received my Eureka "Sandras" 25mm women musketeers, commands and artillery. They look great and only one bayonet out of forty was broken. They will be formed into the a brigade consisting of two battalions of 16 figures.

The Finishing Academy for Gentlewomen at Eross was founded by Duke Oleg and Duchess Maria in 1690 as a place for the orphaned daughters of Indur. Eventually the academy would enroll young women from around the Duchy. Some of these "Daughters of Indur" remain at the academy in the form of the 1st and 2nd Battalions of Cadets and the 1st Battery of Cadets.


  1. Great news and a very credible background- cheers!

  2. Thank you. I know the story is not unique but I read that alot of European states/nation have created academies through history.
