As the early morning mist cleared across the battlefield, the initial positions of their respective armies became clearer to the two generals, who glowered across the field at each other through their respective spyglasses.
On the southern side of the battlefield, General de Latte snapped his spyglass shut and said to his immediate subordinate, "Major di Biscotti? Another demitasse of that French press coffee for which you are so renowned!"
Meanwhile, across the field on the northern ridge, General von Bauchschmerzen allowed his head to loll, wondered silently to himself "Why Elba?" and then asked of no on in particular, "Gentlemen, a bowl of warm milk with crushed saltines stirred into it, please."
The Stollenian Prinz Johannes' Corps of Jaegers on newly finished multiple 60mm x 40mm bases. These figures are part of a 31-man unit (used in the famous Sittangbad refight staged at Partizan 2006) that was purchased from John Preece last winter. I added the two marching officers on either side of the mounted CO at far left. There is no arguing that these 30mm Holger Eriksson figures, while not hyper-detailed, exhibit a terrific degree of charisma. I am still extremely tickled and pleased to have them as part of my collection now.
And upstairs, the quasi-medieval Battle of Hasenpfeffer rages while Catzilla knoshes at right.
