Consternation and glum faces in Tippelbruder

Well, the new cavalry templates product line seems to have flown like a lead balloon. The shop is empty! Perhaps no-one wants cavalry anymore - not surprising really, when one considers the cost compared with infantry. Horses are very expensive to buy and maintain. Projected templates - Austrian heavy cavalry, Prussian heavy cavalry, may never see the light of day. Back to tinkering with the infantry, I think...

Oh, have you not visited the Grand Duchy of Stollen recently? Perhaps they are only Stagonian copies . . . but they appear to be your uniforms.

Our daughter and granddaughter are visiting (our first house-guests in our new home), so I have limited time on the computer for a few days.

However, never fear, the Hesse-Bearstein mounted troops will be displaying their uniforms in less than a week.

Press ON!

The dragoon and other cavalry (Cuirassier?) uniform templates are all eagerly awaited.

Hi Murdock,

OK - will do (but a bit slower than of late, I'm afraid). That would be Prussian dragoons and cuirassiers, presumably? ;-)
