The Feldjäger are the Military Police of the Prussian Empire’s army, and as such, their job is to prosecute those who fall foul of military law, usually through summary execution. Their duties also include security, and again, this is usually enforced through summary execution. In fact, everything they do is enforced through summary execution.
It is little wonder they are not particularly liked within the army of the Prussian Empire.
General Gunter Grass has served in the army of the Prussian Empire for twenty years, and as such, has just about seen it all. He has served in all infantry regiments, and has even done a stint in the Feldjager, or military police.
He is currently serving as commander of the Prussian Empire’s Ekk Korps, a regiment of Panzergrenadier (mechanized infantry) that has extensive desert combat experience. The Ekk Korps are currently based in Aegyptus, as the Prussian Empire desires to get their mitts on some of the Pharaoh’s treasures before Blighty does (cue Indiana Jones-esque plot devices here). The current Pharaoh, Cleopatra, is not keen on his presence in her country, but without a decent army, there is not a lot she can do about it. She will just have to hope that the few MI7 agents from Blighty, and ASAG, can do something about it for her.
The Prussian Empire’s army fields several kinds of units, depending on tactical and strategic purposes. One such unit is the Waldhuter, or Rangers.
Waldhuter are essentially a light infantry unit comprising of lightly armed and fast moving troops to gain objectives in the early stages of any campaign. Sometimes Scouts are added to the unit for deep insertion roles.
Each Waldhuter squad should have one Unteroffizier with which to lead it. Even though they tend to operate in loose formation, they do, on occasions, combine themselves into tight rank-and-file squads. The Unteroffizier’s Leadership skill comes into play when using tight squad formations.
The Waldhunter Soldat is your standard squad member, and is lightly armed. They tend to get killed in droves so there is no point spending too much on weaponry and equipment.
The Panzerfaust is a specialist in many Prussian Empire regiments, and as such, is well represented within the Waldhuter. He (or she) is armed with a Panzerfaust anti-tank missile launcher and five rockets.
One in five Waldhuter are trained up as Panzerfaust, and this is represented throughout all squadrons, no matter what their size. So a squad of five Waldhuter will have one Panzerfaust, a squad of ten will have two Panzerfaust, and so on. The only exception to this is a three-man deep insertion unit, made up of Waldhuter Scouts. This kind of unit usually comprises of two Panzerfaust and an Unteroffizier. All three members of a Waldhuter Scout squad will be armed with MP40’s as well as their usual armament.
Von Braun left the Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurers Guild when his squad was disbanded. So he returned home and looked up his old friend, Gunter Grass, who offered him a job in the Ekk Korps. He persuaded Viktoria to come with him.
Viktoria was formerly a Sharp Shooter within the Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurer’s Guild before leaving when her squad was disbanded somewhat unceremoniously. Now she has signed up for a stint with the Prussian Empire‘s Ekk Korps, despite being from the Soviet Rusk Republic. Von Braun had quite a lot to do with this, as it was his suggestion that she’d try her luck with the Prussian Army.
As you can see, I have heavily altered the army list for ASAG (Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurers Guild) and dropped two whole squads out of it. Also, both Anne Casey’s and Clint’s squads have been altered. Caesar has moved to Anne’s squad and Clint’s squad has been reduced to four while I change a figure around and create a new card for him. This is to free up minifigs, get rid of those God-awful quads, and assign certain minifigs to the Prussian Empire force I am currently trying to build up. I have received the truck and jeep set from Lego Indiana Jones and am awaiting the motorcycle set from the same series (The Last Crusade). You can still find Lego Indiana Jones sets on ebay for reasonable prices if you look hard enough. I am also waiting for the Lego minifig of Irina from The Crystal Skull to arrive in the post.
I will also be doing a Bricklink order via Minifigforlife.com for tan Stahlhelms, MP40’s, MG34’s, an Afrika Korps Lieutenant, and various other bits and pieces towards the middle of the month. The plan is for “Irina” to become a sidecar gunner with a MG32 with an Afrika Korps driver from Indiana Jones, another IJ German to ride the other bike, the Afrika Korps Lieutenant to ride the back of the “jeep” with its gun being replaced by another MG34 (the original Lego one is pretty crap), and make up a motorized “Afrika Korps” type squad or two out of this.
MI7 now numbers 8 minifigs, and they will all be written up in due course.
I have also been collecting the Mining range from Lego City, and that will be a new faction in the not too distant future. I have put together a small defence force for it, including a hero and driver in a MOC muscle car based loosely on the sports car from Pharaoh’s Quest.
Another faction I am working on is an Aegyptian Army based on the Pharaoh’s Quest sets. I have recently obtained Cleopatra from the Minifig Series, and she will be the hero for that faction. I could do with many more mummies and some of those Anubis Guard to add to that force…
Anne Casey has been with the Guild for a number of years. When Grunge Smith decided to split the guild up into squadrons for ease of management, it was only natural that she would head up the first squadron.
As a veteran, she has been in a number of campaigns with ASAG – the R2013 expedition to Aegyptus and the raiding of various trap-laden tombs in the deserts, the R2012 expedition to Amazonia and the little scrap with the Cyclops, and numerous others, too many to mention, or make up off the top of one’s head.
Rumours about Anne’s orientation are never-ending, and she has been romantically linked to Viktoria before she left with Von Braun to join the Prussian Empire’s Ekk Korps under General Gunter Grass. She has also been linked in the past to Helena from Clint’s squad and Natalia from Evie’s squad. When not on duty with ASAG she is often found in the Pink Dragon, an establishment of a dubious nature, and she is well known to the scene there.
Anne’s weapon of choice is a lever-operated Winchester rifle, with a revolver and combat knife as back up.
Don’t let Caesar’s cute Blighty accent fool you. He’s a cold blooded killer.
Martin blows everything up, eventually, whether by accident or on purpose…
Matthew only has a small one. His gun, on the other hand, is massive. Yes, he is compensating…
Mark shoots things fairly accurately. Therefore, he will always have a job…
Clint is a hardened veteran of gun fights and adventuring alike. He takes no prisoners, either way…
Miriam is the long-suffering partner of Grunge Smith and mother of The Kid, and chooses to work in Clint’s squad just to keep out of their way as much as is possible in such a tight-knit Guild.
He shoots big guns and is painfully polite around ladies.
A fiercely independent lady with an explosive attitude. Not one to be trifled with.
Evie is unkempt, unshaven, and a bit of a speed freak. He is also the best thing you have seen on two wheels. Evie is often tanked up on coffee, and is terrible at getting up in the mornings.
Evie now heads up the first Rapid Motorised Reaction Squad.
Natalia recently got hired by the Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurers Guild on the recommendation of Evie. His colleagues are unsure whether it was because of her coffee, or because of her ability with explosives. Natalia, for her part, keeps quiet about this. She has her eye on Evie – now if only he would shower a bit more often…
Yvonne is not one to be underestimated at all – smart, sassy, and very very tough. She has been on the saddle of bikes, trikes and quads since she was knee-high to a halfling, and there isn’t a Steel Horse that she cannot handle.
Smith Senior is Grunge Smith’s father, a curmudgeonly old explorer who still has plenty of life left within him.
Ian is a hot-headed young punk who seems to think that his trike is a mobile weapons platform. After strapping an M1919 to the back few would now argue with his insistence that it is.
