More Pics To Open the Ball

A few more pics before the first bass notes of cannon open the Ball...

The Grand Duchess' pride and joy...the "Red Battery" prepares to fire!

The Grolsteiner CinC and staff issue last minute orders behind a chateau.


The Grand Duchess sent a personal message to her Lieb Guard..."Kommen Hauptsiegreiches oder kommen nach Hause nicht an allen"...."Come home victorious or not at all"...Hard woman that Duchess!

Grolstein Dragoons!

The Grolstein "Yellow Battery" goes into action!
Men of the Konigreich!...Now is Your Time!...Colonel Jahde's Regiment of Musketeers


Grolsteiner Freikorps hold a village church and cemetery on the left flank

Grolstein "Red Grenadiers" hold the Chateau

Hopefully the "the Dogs of War" will be loosed in the next couple of days and a battle report will soon  follow. Thanks to everyone for tuning in!

Could it be really some 38 years ago that I first discovered this kind of pic (in 'The War Game' -read 'Charge!' only later) and was definitively 'hooked' -though they were far less of eye-candy?
Thanks for the display!

Well done!

"a battle report will soon follow.": no report can be unbiased. Thus, what about two AAR, one from the point of view of one side, and posted on the corresponding blog? A golden opportunity to revive them and present the updated OOB / army parade of each of the two armies?

Staying tuned, sure!
Cheers,
Jean-Louis
