News from Stanzbach-Anwatsch

As the armies muster for the coming campaign, word of new forces being mustered has been trickling in to Schoeffen-Buschhagen headquarters.
There has been some concern at the Allied headquarters over the reliability of the forces from Stanzbach-Anwatsch.  The recent arrival of a company of sappers to swell the S-A contingent spawned rumors of an impending shift in alliances, as it is anticipated that the forces of the Pragmatic Alliance will be on the defensive in the upcoming campaign season.  
The sappers can be seen here undertaking various field exercises:

However, the country folk and farm animals of Stanzbach-Anwatsch seem unconcerned by war and rumors of war:
