56540 Cotechina Guarda Todoroni return re-mastered and on offer

“Quite a few Armoricans were surprised when the annual troop review took place in Nappoly when after thousands of gaudily dressed Todoroni marched past in a variety of styles all different to each other naturally they saw something new. Last in the review were five new regiments that had been privately raised and then gifted to King Tadio Polo who sat on his golden throne and clapped excitedly at the new troops marched past in perfect formation and saluted him as they went.

Murmuring the Elves asked each other, who were these excellently drilled, uniformed and equipped soldiers and why were they wearing the trademark bearskins, the headgear of elite guard soldiers. The King waited for the review to end and then at a signal he ordered the regiments to wheel back in to the square in front of the royal stand. As one they raised their muskets and fired a salute to the king making several high ranking Elves duck. They had never seen such precision from Todoroni. At this point a short and portly Toad stepped from the ranks and bowed to the assembled nobility and Elves before ascending to the stand. He was the Baron Petrochemicoli a very, very rich noble who had become sick of being the butt of all the jokes going on military ineptitude.  He had raised an elite regiment of Toads.”
