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.

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.
