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.
Here's wishing all of you a happy and peaceful 2016. May it see more figure painting, more reading of actual history rather than rule sets, and more tabletop gaming than the year just ending. Happy New Year! -- Stokes
