Toy soldier blogs come, and toy soldiers blogs go, but the GD of S blog celebrates its eleventh year in 2017! The Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II invites you to drop by his realm. . . somewhere just to the northeast of Frederick's Prussia. . . sometime during the mid-18th Century.
Von Hirschbiegel's 11th Hussars Occupy Pickelhaubewicz!
Bad luck! Major von Hirschbiegel is thrown from his horse and cannot issue any orders for one turn.
Nevertheless, his 11th Hussars reach and occupy Pickelhaubewicz first, but they are set upon immediately byvon Grundig's 4th Dragoons.
Meanwhile, a company of Stollen's Von Laurenz Musketeers reach the field in fine order.
And on the Zichenauer side of the field? A company of O'Malley's Irish Grenzers and a squadron of The Die Grenadiere zu Pferd arrive, but they must wait for orders from Major von Hirschbiegel before doing anything constructive.
