And so it begins...

Some men of the Grenadier Company, 78th Frazer Highlanders
chatting with a Rhode Island Ranger.
Fort Massac 250th Anniversary Commemoration, Metropolis, Ill. 2007
This is the opening salvo of a new wargames blog, The Hetzenberg Chronicles. It's intended to be a showcase for my 18th Century ImagiNation of Hetzenberg, leavened by occasional notes of the doings at my club and random wargames material. I hope you enjoy it!

will Hetzenberg rise a battalion of Highlander mercenaries?
Then we all hope there not too much thorny bush & scrub in Hetzenberg...

Hey, I really like your uniform and infantry standard designs. Have you decided what types of figures you will use for your project? Welcome to Imaginary 18th Century Europe!

Best Regards,

Hey there Stokes! Nice of you to visit. I've ordered some RSM95 figures from the good folks at DPC. Just the basics to begin with, in the shape of some musketeers, grenadiers and heavy horse.

Hello AJ,

Oh, that's a slippery slope to go down, you know. Once you order RSMs, there's no turning back. Your heart and mind will no longer be your own! ;-)

On a totally different note, what kind of writing do you enjoy? Since I teach composition, and do a bit myself on the side, I'm always curious to meet others who engage in something similar.

Best Regards,

As for RSM95... Yes, I've looked at their site and drooled! hey look nice clean figures in good proportions, and inexpensive enough for me to build up a reasonable force without breaking the budget.

Correction (shouting) he's an EXCELLENT author of paranormal/sf romances!

I should know--I've read them all. And I can't wait until the next one comes out. :)

And he looks great in that kilt there, doesn't he? :)
