A Few Old Photographs. . .
Three squadrons of the Anspach-Bayreuth Curassiers. The figures are RSM95.
The Action at Zollamtstadt Bridge, fought in late December 2007.
The commander of Stollen's cavalry arm, Count Pavel Petrovich von Butinski, who always has a piece of unsolicited advice whether those around him want it, or not.
A close-up of two Holger Eriksson figures, painted as, more or less, Von Trumbach Dragoons.
The surrender of the odious General de Latte (in dark blue at left) to Stollen's rather flamboyant General von Tschatschke (wearing pink) at the conclusion of the epic Battle of Theodorstal Valley, fought in August 2010.
A nicely done map of my campaign area, done for me by Tyler Provich in late 2006. The green 'Disputed Territory' is the long contested Duchy of Schleiz, an area rich in game, timber, and other natural resources.
Three squadrons of the von Trumbach Dragoons. The figures are from Holger Eriksson, purchased while we were in Berlin during the summer of 2009 (before the Young Master arrived). Their journey was circuitous. I placed the order with Spencer Smith Miniatures in the U.K. They were next sent from Stockholm to us in Berlin, and then carried home to the U.S. in our carry-on baggage at the conclusion of our visit. German airport personnel are never suspicious of miniature soldiers and always have a smile and a few interested words for model soldier collectors. . . quite unlike U.S. customs and gate agents.
