Back at the Residenz. . .

The first dozen Holger Eriksson dragoons in question. . .


Following a frustrating visit to the Brummen und Summen, during which the Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II waited for an hour in the busy dining room without being shown to his table, he returned to the palace where Hives served a ham sandwich and milk in the kitchen. The Grand Duke then retired to his study where he continued work on that miniature regiment of cavalry. Meanwhile, the rest of the household was abuzz with preparations for Christmas and the arrival of the von Grandin family.

No one does horses like HE!

That Bay in the front corner has some mischief of his own in mind. If his rider does not get hold of him quickly I forsee a nasty kick aimed at the horse behind which is getting uncomfortably close.

I'm inclined to agree, John. The more work I do on these figures, the more I can another regiment of HE cavalry being added to the mix at some point in the future. Maybe some of the hussars?

Best Regards,

Stokes
