I dont know what colour scheme use Marienburg army
Please help me...
Pain is an illusion of the senses
Despair is an illusion of the mind
most helpful thing would be to know if this city(is it even a city) is somewhere in Empire fluff, or if it's a place you made up yourself?
that's the thing about perfection, it can only get worse.
The Marienburg warband in the Mordheim section of the online store is painted in yellow and red, with some blues. Here's the link, but I can't tell you for sure what their colors are:
Marienburg was once part of the Empire but during the rein of Dieter III (IIRC) he sold the city and surrounding land to the Burgmasters (Might be wrong name) this ended up with him be disposed and the Prince Of Altdorf took to the throne. But the city itself doesn't have much description, though IIRC it's got red cloth as the main colour.
I don't know much about the Empire history just yet, but it's probably the Burgomeisters who bought the city (that's a genuine German term, and the city Marienberg is a real German city in an extremely similar geographic location, but I don't know a thing about its history).
There is not much fluff so you can make your own colour scheme
Wat dus dis button do?
I think that although Marienberg might be the same as the actual city, its description fits that of Medieval Antwerp/Amsterdam. For Americans unfamiliar with European geography, Antwerp is in Flanders and was one of the biggest ports in Europe mostly dealing with English wool. Amsterdam is a bit further north but is similiar. So if you want a theme for you Marienbergers, they are either Dutch or Belgians.Originally posted by SkyTyrant@Dec 20 2004, 19:10

Marienberg is called the "City of Gold" and is the richest city in the Old World. There is a sizable Elf Quarter and trading post as an Elvish colony once stood there.

According to currant fluff The Count of Nordland is Marienburg's official ruler so may be uniform would be similar to Nordlands of blue and yellow.
Alternatively if you follow the Amsterdam route then uniforms would possibly be dictated by which guild recruited the soldiers in the first place.
Blue would sort of make sense with Marienburg being situated on the edge of Middenland, whose state colour is blue.Originally Posted by Carlisle
Very old topic but still relavant at least to me .
Iam currently building a marienburger army. I use the colourscheme Light orange, white and blue. Also known as oranje-blanje-bleu in anno 1500 the colours of the Republic of the united Netherlands.
And yes Marienburg is based on the VOC trade (Netherlands). In history the VOC had a trade arangement with japan, only VOC could trade with japan. This is similar to the trade arrangment that the marienburgers have with the high elves.
But not much else is known about marienburg so make the fluff your self , although this year a campaign will be launched which will involve the strugle for Marienburg. (80 years of war?)
