Wow! Very impressive indeed.

I will certainly advise Furst Bruno von Ursa that he should not antagonize your Duchy. Your army is quite intimidating.

I like it!

Echoing Jeff here, as that is indeed an impressive array of troops. I think one of the fascinating things is that you've managed an entire regiment of men reloading and it actually doesn't look bad in that large a number.

It is always most impressive to see the collections on display.

I am most impressed by your marines, especially thier own ship!

Great work.

Do you get much opportunity to game with them on the tabletop?

Murdock,
The action at Gublatz marks the first time in almost a year that I have actually been able to bring any opponents to the table. Most of the time has been spent fleshing-out the Army. The inclusion of the Herzogen Lynnette in my OOB was partially a fluke. I had wanted my alter-ego, Albrecht, to have a nautical background to be somewhat of a reflection of myself. I was resting up for a day from a minor medical procedure when the missus bought me the model in order to pass the time. After assembling the hull, the model sat on the shelf for several weeks, at least until I was preparing the game. It struck me to include the ship to represent the Lagerburg naval presence. I took the model out to the garage and used a belt sander to plane her down to the waterline. I stepped only the lower masts, and used thread instead of the included plastic shrouds. I imagine that the ship will pop-up now and again during the War of the Slobbovian Annexation (WSA) or later campaigns...
Regards,
Allen
