Tilly

Last night I started imagining what I would like to do if I went down to Bila Hora and I came to the conclusion I would have to try and have a tercio in the army of Johann Tserclaes, Count of Tilly. (Nothing over ambitious then)...
Tilly - the Monk in armour - was in a way a captain of the old school by the time of the Thirty Years War and I have always had an interest in that part of the period.

Tilly, it's a really good choice. Bavarian flags are also very nice.
