Romanian mountain divisions were of higher quality than line infantry. I normally grade them as regular, but their lighter artillery equipment, put them at a disadvantage on flatter terrain. Germany could not count on cooperation between its Hungarian and Romanian allies, but nevertheless, Romanian troops were regarded as more reliable troops than the Hungarians or Italians. The 4th Mountain division was of lower quality than the first three raised. You could consider grading the first three as veteran and the fourth as regular? I usually just use my regular Romanians as mountain troops, but am tempted to build a few mountain stands.

Romanian Infantry Regiment

Romanian Infantry Regiment of RHQ and 3 Battalions on FoW-sized 30 x 50mm bases, Two 30mm PBI bases per battalion will work just as well.

 

My Romanians are an eclectic mix of Italians and Japanese Peter Pig figures with Dutch figures thrown in for good measure. Peter Pig’s Carlist SCW troops and WW1 French Alpine troops make pretty good substitutes with a little bit of work.
