|Table and troops laid out, but not yet deployed for battle, |
preparatory to the Battle of Hedbangen, a vital riven and sea
port of the Principality of Ursaminor. The article has yet to be
completed and posted.
The observant reader may have noticed a lack of activity on this blog lately. In fact I have a posting that has been in the draft stage now for the best part of three weeks, the battle fought, the pictures posted and the narrative begun. It was intended to be the generating circumstance of a large scale war within the Wholly Romantic Empire: The War of the Imperial Succession. As is usual with such things, the trigger that fired diplomatic discourse into a shooting war happened on the fringes of the Imperium, of which more perhaps a little later.

Something to think about over the winter months by the nice, warm fire... Meanwhile, the pictures show a little bit of recent progress on the Army Men front, the Raesharn anti-tank guns, and the Kiivar portees coming together. For the latter, will I glue gun and crew to the vehicle, or perhaps glue gun and crew to a stand that will fit into the flat bed of the truck portee, or leave it all loose? The flexibility offered by the last option does have its down side...
