Favoured for their unwavering commitment to duty, these troops are versatile line infantry.

Well-trained and well-respected, the foot regiments of the King’s German Legion are responsible for holding the line in battle. When deployed, they brave the threat of artillery fire, skirmishers and cavalry charges to unleash very effective volley fire upon the enemy. Cavalry charges should be countered by ordering them to form square. They fight with justifiable pride in their skills in close combat, giving opponents pause with their brutal use of bayonets.

Historically, the majority of the King’s German Legion was recruited from the Hanoverian Army, which had disbanded after Napoleon’s occupation of Hanover. Given that the British monarch was also Elector of Hanover, the British lost no time in creating a legion of Hanoverian exiles, ready to fight and die to destroy Napoleon. The British soon held the King’s German Legion in high regard due to their exemplary behaviour on the battlefield and in training. Hanoverian officers had a professional attitude towards war that was largely lacking in their native British counterparts, who considered tactics and drill beneath the notice of proper gentlemen.
