Hiring Swiss Troops

Post by Jason on Mon Jul 11, 2011 1:26 pm

At the risk of sounding like I am asking a silly question...

To meet a manpower shortage, in one game I am considering trying to hire Swiss troops (well everyone else does so why be the odd one out Very Happy )

On the practical side, as I have never hired foreign troops before, if I do hire some Swiss units, am I right in saying I will need to arrange getting them from the Swiss Cantons to where ever I want them?

Thanks, that's useful...I guess there is also the issue of getting permission of A N Other nations to allow them to pass through their territory...

depends which game you are in, in game 2 that could prove to be a problem depending on which "side" you are on
