New Recruits Arrive --

Yes, the good news is that the RSM95 recruits have arrived. I've not had as much of a chance to review them as we've also had people over helping us get moved in. We now have about 70% of the stuff we had in storage now here in the house.

Notice that I did not even come close to claiming that we've even made much of a dent in unpacking it. I've got a couple of hundred boxes stacked against walls in my game-room-to-be. But at least they are here and not in storage any more.

Hopefully we will be able to get the rest of the stuff out of storage this next week. But even with what little unpacking we've managed, my wife and I can't believe that we have this much "stuff". Still it is fun to open boxes and find things that we haven't seen in almost two years.

Needless to say, my "game time" has been severely curtailed. I've not been able to spend much time online either. However, I see that the "Emperor and Elector" group blog now has 13 member countries. I wish that I had more time to spend there.

Oh yes, the RSM boys. I got enough for two new line infantry units (now six total), as well as another Heavy Horse unit, Dragoon unit and Hussar unit (making a total of two each -- as well as the Horse Grenadier Guard). I also added some Jagers and Grenzers and a pair of light guns (as well as some limbers). So I've pretty much got most of the troops for Saxe-Bearstein.

Next I'll have to get some for those vile Stagonians. Now, what else do I need to do? Oh yes, paint them.

Congratulations, Jeff! We'll look forward to the photos once you can get enough of a breather to line up the new troops!

Continue the muster Jeff!

One day the grand review will be held.

On that day I hope to be present to make my own 'impression' of the spectacle!

Hi Jeff,

Don't those RSM95 figures just make you itch all over to paint 'em? Sounds like you've got a nice little bundle of figures there to keep you busy for while. Looking forward to some photos here when you get the chance.

Best Regards,

We moved a lot of "stuff" over the weekend too. At one point we were stacking boxes in the Mother-in-Laws house and her neighbour was watching. "You've got a lot of books" he stated (after the tenth tomato crate). I nodded. "Read them all?" he asked. "Most" I replied. He looked at the twelth box going into the garage and asked "Why?".
