Going Solo #3b – Nation overview – The Drusal Republic “Ours is the World”

Now to the important bit – order of battles! The Republic organise their ground forces into 4 types of regiments. Each regiment has 2 combat battalions based on the regiment type, with a third support battalion. This generally mirrors how they design their battalions – 2 combat companies and 2 support companies – each with up to 3 platoons. Currently they have: 2 Armoured Regiments (2 heavy armour and 1 mechanised battalion), 5 Line Regiments (2 standard armour and 1 mechanised battalion), 5 Mechanised Regiments (2 mechanised and 1 standard armour battalion), and 5 Motor Regiments (2 motor and 1 standard armour battalion).

I’ve collected enough models to play any one battalion where 1 model equals 1 tank or squad. Hopefully this should work for most of the battles I intend to fight. Anything bigger, with multiple battalions or reinforcements, then I’ll have to start playing 1 model equals 1 squadron/platoon. It’ll be a work in progress until I figure out the best approach. But if you thought this wall of text was never ending, I have some pretty pictures for you.

So whats with the stark camouflage? The Republics climate is mostly temperate but is fairly cool for most of the summer months, making winter colder than some. They also have a number of large rivers running from the mountains in the north to the sea towards the south.

I realise that a nations order of battle includes more than just the ground forces, but rest assured that a navy and airforce are in the works.  Also, I’m hope my camera skills will improve for next time!
