I should be packing but … # the last

After months (and months) of preparation tomorrow is the big day for the move from Schloss von Peter to Neu Schloss von Peter. The last minute rush is well under way but who knows when we’ll have telecom’s again so here’s a quick update.

von Peter himself had hoped to have his Napoleonic Russian Kuirassiere Brigade command available to flaunt. But while most of the basing was complete ‘most’ was not good enough and too soon the time came to pack it away. For the next post then … assuming it can be located at the other end!

Victrix Sale

 One reason to rush out this post is because there is a sale at Victrix Ltd … but it ends on the 22 March 2015 so you’d better get a move on if you wish to partake.

Westfalia Miniatures update

Westfalia Miniatures are in the process of renewing their website. Interestingly their ‘Shop’ has an as yet unused category for Napoleonic Baden. Are we going to see a rash of Napoleonic Baden offerings? Admittedly Westphalia often offer jus a few specialty figures in a range rather than a complete offering.

New Front Rank Russians

In many ways the most exciting news. Front Rank Figurines have started to release their Napoleonic Russian Reinforcement packs.

  • RNRPK1 Infantry in Kiwer, marching
  • RNRPK2 Infantry Command in Kiwer, advancing

RNRPK3

  • RNRPK3 Grenadiers/Carabiniers in Kiwer, marching (above)

RNRPK4

  • RNRPK4 Grenadier/Carabinier Command in Kiwer, advancing (above).

Excellent news. And the good times are due to keep rolling as per the following sentence stolen from the latest newsletter …

Lots more Russians, including the long awaited Russian Guard, PLUS line in 1809 style shakos, lookout for more releases over the next couple of months!

  1. Best wishes for the move your Excellency
    Be sure to transport items such as jewels, riches and wargames armies yourself but afford the latter the greatest protection as they are most valuable though on no account stuff your pockets or wallet full of them!

    • Thank you Valleyboy.

      Wise words which I actioned in advance. The vast majority of the precious materials – painted figures, terrain etc – were moved the day before the official moving day.

      And thank the dice Gods that they were as the actual moving day was hectic enough without dealing with the “my precious” as well! 8O)

      Salute

  2. Hope your move went well vP! And I hope all your armies made the trip safe and sound!

    It is interesting, that so many companies are tackling Badener right now. It is not like they were THE army that saw prime action at EVERY battle, but I guess they will all know their market.

    • Hello Burkhard

      Yes the move went well in the end. Lots of work and a big thank you to Terry for his invaluable help on the day. Now we have a house, garage and shed full of boxes etc to sort out!!

      I guess two things with Baden – helmets and the fact that you can model the whole army.

      Salute
      von Peter himself
