On a hillside southeast of Frankfurt

Feldzeugmeister von Blei-Sammeln has taken the opportunity of his main column passing through a defile to review his troops. Twelve battalions, 28 squadrons, and 10 guns pass in review: troops of the Empress, Gallia, and Saxe-Jungbach on their way to rendezvous with M. Chevert to save Frankfurt.

Here can be seen the Saxe-Jungbachers, fresh recruits from the County of Eureka, with the Weisspferdheim Cavalry behind them, and Gallian troops and Imperial dragoons in the distance. Further descriptions were taken by a local village lad, who has sent them on to Hesse-Fedora.

Hey Ed,

Good Lord! If that's only part of the miniatures that are going to show up, you'll have to be sure that the gametable is reinforced lest it collapse under the combined weight! I hope your mode of transportation has heavy duty shocks.

I'm really looking forward to seeing and reading the after action reports as well. What are the odds in the Von Stein betting pool?

Frankfurter said...

My house guest's business had interferred with my own planned consolation game (the wife promised me a good day because my health prevents my participation in Texas) ... But I still expect that far to the west of the main battle, smoke will arise from the vincinty of Ginnheim ... the maneuver phase of the game (I use Koenig's Krieg at home) having been completed ... Whatever the outcome of either battle, the Gallian lines into Frankfurt will still be open due to the Hurtshog's actions.
-- hope you all have a fantastic time! ---
