Tradgardland 1918ish...

I have been thinking what might have happened to the Duchy of Tradgardland at the end of WW1. I have imagined it caught up in the troubles that beset Germany. I have been thinking of the different factions in the Duchy- Freikorps ( more than one rival group) , Guild/Union militia, Spartakists, the Ducal Army, Anarchists and many more. I would be grateful if you have any ideas for other factions and ideas to "fill-out" those I have already mentioned. Thanks in advance...

  1. Interesting barricade those boyos are behind. I wonder what sort of barrel things they used for it. That would make a nice urban terrain project piece.


  2. You could have Communists, of course, and perhaps some form of militia based on the towns and regions. Your whole idea puts me in mind of the situation described by Orwell in his book "Homage to Catalunia."

  3. You could also have a rival Aristocrat's force making a power-grab, presumably led by some ambitious mid-level noble with a penchant for moustache-twirling and evil laughter. I'm thinking of something along the lines of 'The Prisoner of Zenda' but probably without the dapper Englishman who's a double of the old Duke...
