A Large Infusion to the Stollenian Warchest. . .


Payment for a lengthy translation, completed last summer, arrived finally mid-afternoon today.  It's reasonably large as these things go, and I'm allocating it to fund future, and as yet unimagined, figure purchases for the Grand Duchy of Stollen project.  Very likely more Minden and Fife&Drum stuff, which is simply too tempting to resist.  For the time being, though, I'm squirreling away these funds and forgetting about them since there is already a respectably sized pile of unpainted lead in Zum Stollenkeller.  Best to see to those before I go crazy ordering new stuff.  However, the Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II and Hives are enjoying clay pipes of the finest Virginia tobacco this evening, along with drams of something medicinal, in celebration of this windfall.

My Dear heinz-Ulrich,

How wonderful for you! You might want to wait until the Estimable James of Purky comes forth with additional command and cavalry figures. We can also highly recommend his specialty items like ammo wagons, pontoon sets and the variety of artillery he offers.

My valet has just whispered to me not to forget to extend the most wonderful Christmas and New Years greeting to you and the royal family. May your good fortunes continue and be enjoyed throughout the New Year, 2014.
