Despite the less than cordial relationship Stirland has with its neighbour Talabecland,
money is money and as such the Elector Count Alberich Haupt-Anderssen, Grand Count
of Stirland, Prince of Wurtbad and Overlord of Sylvania has hired some Talabheim
artillery. Part of the contract of hiring them was that a regiment of Talabheim Ersatzsolder
must also be hired to protect the artillery from harm.
As such the forces of Stirland
have a regiment of pikemen amongst its number.
