Happy Holidays!

It is time for the now-traditional Syldavian Christmas greeting and toast, brought to you by a chosen grenadier of the Polishov Musketeers Infantry Regiment.  Some of you might remember him from last year; he is back this year to wish you and your families the joy of this festive season and a happy and interesting year to come.  

It is a very busy time here, as we are travelling visiting with families and old friends and delighting in our three-year-old's excitement at the holiday's bustling social round.  And sleeping in so far as we are able - something lacking the frenetic last few months.  I'm away from my Syldavian army but I am scribbling away, in a few pleasant minutes here and there, at my next post on King Ivan.  As well,  in a few minutes before retiring each night, I am putting the primer and base colours on a unit of Bordurian cavalry I brought with me...   It is a time of happy progress on all fronts.

My thanks for dropping in this blog over the last year.  With help from Alan of Tradgardland fame, I am looking forward to presenting you the results of some real games played in 2012.  



  1. Happy Holidays to you and yours!
    It's great that you could bring some minis with you to get some work done on (and probably a welcome diversion, too).

  2. Merry Christmas to you and yours all from the Duchy of Tradgardland! What a stout fellow the grenidier looks.A cunning plan ( as Baldrick might say) to take some figures with you to paint. Enjoy the R&R and I look forward to our collaboration in 2012- who knows we might even meet up in the royal Mile too
