Reich Duke Wilhelm of Beerstein's visit
It is King Leopold IV birthday and also the 3rd anniversary of his coronation. The Reich Duke has timed his visit well and will share in the celebrations. Below are some moments from the Reich Duke's visit.

A blog documenting the encounters between the armies of the imaginary nations of the Kingdom of Wittenberg and its neighbours (including the Kingdom of Monrovia and their allies). My inspiration being drawn from 'Charge or How to Play Wargames' by Young & Lawford and 'The Wargame' by Charles Grant.
I have a number of other period interests for wargaming (from ancients to WW2), these have their own blogs, see below.
