As Xmas approaches the nobles of the court start to arrive, a few today but as the festive season nears there will be more coaches each day and the servants will be busy moving all the luggage.
Baron Hofler and family have arrived, including their son Colonel Hofler (on leave from the army in the Zinzendorf province). The palace cats watch a small group of guards on their way to the main gate; meanwhile the window cleaner finishes off the last of the front windows.
For actions between Wittenberg and Begovians on the lower reaches of the River Oudear, involving river galleys, I have decide to go with 1/600 scale. This will give me enough space on the table to show the wider river and allow for sufficient galleys for a reasonable game. Initially I bought a couple of 1/600 metal galleys from Skytrex; these are rather nice. I thought I should have a go at making my own out of cardboard and other bits. First attempt at 1/600 scratch-built galley done (need to do the sail yet), shown here with the Skytrex ones
looks ok, now need to decide how many to build for the opposing fleets.
