On the Eve of Battle. . .

Pickelhaubewicz seen from the southeast. It is thought that the Stollenian troops, under Colonel Hans Peter von Grundig, who surveys the field alone, will approach from this direction.


Another view of Pickelhaubewicz, looking to the southeast this time. A local farmer who was questioned earlier this evening believes that a Zichenauer force, led by Major Wolfgang von Hirschbiegel, will apprach the village from the southwest, just off to the right of this artist's rendering of the field.

It looks good, Stokes. A nice clean table with some interesting-looking terrain.

Cool field of Mars - well worth all your hard work! Have a great game and I await ( like many others I imagine) despatches from the front...

Stokes - I'm more than a little looking forward to this... :o))

My regular opponent (DG) is away for three or four months and if I'm to get a game then we shall be adopting the same approach as you... please give as many details as possible on the mechanics of how you exchange moves as you go along...

Bonne chance...

In the tent of Major Wolfgang von Hirschbiegel, a small group of officers gathers.

"Gentlemen, no doubt you are wondering for what cause you have been drawn from your parent units. You have each been selected to serve our beloved Zichenau as a part of the vanguard of our forces as we once again advance against the Stollenian usurpers. Today the eyes of the whole army and the Princess shall be upon us. It is a time for steel and glory, Gentlemen. If you will observe the map, here. We march for Pickelhaubewicz, to secure this crossroads for the advance of the victorious forces of Zichenau. Doubtless the craven von Drosselmaier shall dispatch some small delaying force to cover his retreat, but we shall defeat them by force of arms and lay open the way to the capital for our beloved Princess. On for Zichenau! Assemble your commands, we march within the hour."

I like the old-school style of your setup! Now I have 10 more posts to catch up on to follow this battle! :-)

Prewar landscapes are so beautiful and peaceful. Alas, carnage awaits those then-peaceful fields.
