General von Coors and Major Honking Thirst keep a close eye on Prussian maneuvers

Major General Adlolph von Coors and Major Honking Thirst have been monitoring Prussians maneuvers near Hopsberg. General von Coors believes the Prussians are making final preparations to reinvade Beerstein. He has sent an urgent appeal for Reich Duke Wilhelm to bring all possible reserves immediately. His plan is to pin the Prussians and allow the Reich Duke to enjoin the battle in the Prussian's flank. Speed and stealth could mean victory!

Hi Cap'n Bill,

It's good to see the Major back in action again! All of Raubenstadt will be following his career with great interest.

I like the Name of Honking Thirst, mind if I purloin it? ;-)

He can be one of the leaders sent after Hakkaluggie the Indian War Chief....

Major Honking Thirst accompanied Ritter Andrew von Meltzer, as his military aide, to the University of Pabst. They are both proud citizens of the Markgraaf of Raubenstadt. The Major offered his service to Reich Duke Wilhelm to fight the dreaded Prussians who have again threatened our realm. Young Ritter von Meltzer, an excellent student, also offered his services. The Reich Duke believes education is more important than war. After all, each generation will ultimately heard the drums of battle and there is no need to rush!
Best regards...Wilhelm

It should also be noted that Major General Adolph von Coors is on loan from the Principality of Saxe-Bearstein.

Nice looking figures. I particularly like the look of those troops in the background as well as the command vignette.

"Speed and stealth" huh. Well... OK, but don't forget surprise. Surprise and fear. Uh, surprise and fear and almost fanatical devotion... Ooops. Sorry wrong thread!

But nice figures and an excellent photo thereof!
