T-minus five days and counting. . .


Here's the 1st Squadron of Zichenau's 11th (Prinz Albrecht's) Hussars, galloping behind their newly appointed colonel, "Frieherr Adrian von Muenster" (atop the lively bay steed at front) and their newly issued guidon. Except for two coats of Future/Klear acrylic floor finish, they are ready to take the field this coming Saturday, if "Herr Major Wolfgang von Hirschbiegel" chooses to include them in his advance guard, which will attempt to seize and hold the small village of Pickelhaubewicz, along the postal road to Krankenstadt, the Stollenian capital. The second squadron of the regiment is reportedly on its way from the Zichenauer frontier and should join the 1st squadron by midweek.

Dashing fellows! Your blog is always an inspiration!
Maybe I'll try my hand at a solo battle this upcoming holiday weekend...

They look great, Stokes. For Stollen's sake I hope that they don't fight as well as they look.

Huzzah for the hussars- they are fantastic! Like Fitz-Badger I fancy a solo game- I will work towards the Christmas hols I think. Thanks for the offer of the playsheet.

Sir!
I arose early this morning to read the latest despatches from Zichenau and Stollen. Imagine my joy at being appointed commander of Hussars. I can only hope to prove worthy of this honour.

Sir, I remain your obedient servant
Adrian Freiherr von Muenster.


superb stuff Stokes, looking forward to the forthcoming fisticuffs. Swords and roses, swagger and dash, this is what wargaming this period is all about.

all the best
Adrian
