A Little More Stollenian Eye Candy. . .

A reprise of the July 2010 Battle for Teordorstal Valley fought between the fiery Colonel von Adalnowski and the lovesick Major von Topfsange.

Just one more blast from the past today.  The photograph above comes from a solo affair that was conducted here in Zum Stollenkeller during July 2010.  The battle that unfolded over a number of afternoons and evenings, while the Grand Duchess and Young Master Paul were away, was based on a Charles S. Grant Tabletop Teaser from Battlegames #19.  Lots of fun, and the proceedings led eventually to the surrender of the Zichenauer army to the Stollenians.  You can read more about the battle, as seen through the eyes of Colonel von Adalnowski and his guest the young Major von Topfsange respectively, by viewing the July 2010 blog entries.

Hey Stokes,

Nothing like the memories of victories past to warm the cockles of your heart on a cold Winter's day!

Say...speaking of things past, in "Battlegames #2", there was an article called "Campaign In A Day", about a simple system of linking up to five scenarios with a minimum of record keeping. Perhaps you could use it or something similar in your first games of 2012.

I've kept this particular post "unread" in my Google Reader queue for some time now. I keep coming back to it. There is something so attractive about the massed ranks of troops and the classic green terrain and model buildings. After looking at this picture over and over, I thought I'd tell you how inspiring I find this one image. I'm committed to basing my own imagi-nation troops in simple green and making some terrain to match. Thanks for the inspiration.
