Czech Military Headquarters by SoaringAven Czech Military Headquarters by SoaringAven
Today I discovered that the Czech Military Headquarters all have a coat of arms, so I went ahead and made this to showcase them. It was nice to work on some personal work again after a long period of paid work :)

I'm surprised there's so many HQs. If I recall correctly, the Czech army is about two brigades strong, isn't it?
That being said, a very nice job. Especially when you didn't have much reference to work with, if I understand it correctly.

Currently around 23 000 men with another 4000 to be hired within a few years + 1200 active reserve with a similar hiring campaign. No idea what  that's in brigades XD But you misunderstand, these aren't military HQs in the sense of military command, that's unified beneath the general command in Prague. These are rather something like administrative districts.

And thanks, that's actually *why* I made it, because there is so little info on the arms. I will probably be submitting an article on them to FOTW and HotW.

If Wikipedia is current, then you guys have two mechanized infantry brigades and five regiments ranging from artillery to reconnaissance. Brigades are generally larger than regiments, and I'm not sure what the Czech scheme is, so I can't comment on the numbers.
Perhaps you should submit it to your Defense Ministry.
I'm familiar with FOTW, but not HotW.

I took the number from some army press release on their website. Not that I can confirm them myself, I'm far from an expert on the army :XD: :XD: :XD:

Do you happen to know why the arms are all so similar?

Well, it's not that I found a literal document saying this but it's probably intentional. A system keeping the same design with the tinctures changing based on the region. The colours are derived from the arms of the regions/cities. 
Fun fact, out of all those arms, I only found an actual, official blazon for one of them. The others had to be taken from depictions.
