Kingdom Updates.

Its been awhile since I have posted to my blog. I have been away training for my new job in the army so that has eaten up some time, plus with moving to Huntsville AL things have been crazy. Plus my miniatures for my other blog are with me so they are getting more attention. My other blog can be found here.

A new member of the royal family.

Tonight me and my wife Nicole found out we will be expecting our first child! I felt that I should let you guys know because I'm letting everyone know!
Joyfully, Devlen

Not in that uniform!

Some of the recruits (figures) that came out to join the ranks of the Eross Cadets we turned away because they were not in a regulation uniform. Major Sophia Ritter turned the ladies away because their uniforms exposed their midriffs. (This is nothing against the guys at eureka minis)

So if anyone wants them let me know and we can work out a deal.

8th Infantry Regiment "The Eross Cadets"

The birth of "The Eross Cadets"

Just received my Eureka "Sandras" 25mm women musketeers, commands and artillery. They look great and only one bayonet out of forty was broken. They will be formed into the a brigade consisting of two battalions of 16 figures.

The Finishing Academy for Gentlewomen at Eross was founded by Duke Oleg and Duchess Maria in 1690 as a place for the orphaned daughters of Indur. Eventually the academy would enroll young women from around the Duchy. Some of these "Daughters of Indur" remain at the academy in the form of the 1st and 2nd Battalions of Cadets and the 1st Battery of Cadets.

The Prussians

As a young boy runner burst through the Ministry of Intelligence's front door.
"Major Heinester! Major Heinester!"

"What is it boy?" the major replied.

"On of your men has arrived, but he's with the physician, he's been shot several times and keeps going on about the Prussians." the boy said between labored breaths

"Take men to him." Heinester responded as he put his coat on and stepped quickly down the stairs and out the door behind the boy.

..... to be continued.

Die Großartige Armee von Indur

Die Großartige Armee von Indur has announced today that it chose the wonderful designs of Eureka Miniatures for its soldiers and that it is looking at the prospect of raising a regiment completely formed by women ( I love the models and even have one of the commander of the regular infantry regiments as a woman but that story will be told at a later time.) now we just wait for our shipment.

War on the wind.

The night air was calm but there was storm moving in.

Major Kurt Heinester was looking over the intelligence brought to him by Indur's spy's abroad. Indur's enemies were all around her.

"It is just a matter of time before one of our enemies attack us."

"Yes sir, but which one will it be?" the Major's young aid asked.

"It could be any of them, I will suggest to the Duke that our army be deployed and the reserve militia raised."

Major Heinester looking at the map on the wall with his figure pressed to his chin.

Which one of you will make the first move?

Here's a thought.

So I was bored today so I decided to take some Old Glory WWI Italians and I thought "Why not create a 20th century version of the army." I am painting them as infantry with German fieldgrey uniforms. I will post the pics after they are done.
