Brnad falls!!

It's some time since we heard of fighting between those two old enemies, Maltovia and Lovitznia, but word has reached us this day of the apparent fall of Brnad. 

When last we heard from that old frontier town, the failure of the so-called 'Liberal' government to see to the proper defence of land and people, had led the Maltovian National League to organise a militia (see our last report here). Despite the continuing threat of the warlike, and expansionist Lovitznians, little more has been done by the corrupt, defeatist 'Liberal' government. And now this:

Above we see the poorly garrisoned walls of Brnad, with merely half a regiment on the walls, and the MNL mustering at bottom left.  In the far distance can be seen the regiments of Lovitznia, and, beyong, the two fiendish generals (said to be father and son), lowering over the scene.

The above photograph shows the Lovitznians in their dash to the walls, shaking off limited casualties from ineffective artillery fire, and facing the very limited firepower of the MNL. It was rumoured that a reserve regiment of the Maltovian Army was on its way, but bad going (and appalling dice luck) meant that the regiment in question:

arrived too late (above) to prevent this awful event:

the entry of those brown-tunic'd devils of Lovitznia into Brnad.

The situation, as we go to press, is shown above.
This means war!  And authorities on the subject suspect that the days of the 'Liberal' goverment are numbered!!

      All the very best indeed for 2016, Alan!

  2. Gripping stuff.... hope developments are posted soon.

    1. 'Soon'? I'm beginning to think that I should have set Brnad in some more languid clime and culture.

  3. Interesting stuff, the bastion looks great.

    1. Yes, I really like those big chunks of resin, they look a treat. I'm only sorry I don't own a ball room so could go the whole, Vauban, hog!

    2. Perhaps you could follow the example of Uncle Toby and turn part of your allotment over to it? Best wishes for the New Year and may your kits get well and truly bashed in 2016!

  4. Dear Mr Front,
    Hope you are well, best wishes for the new year and indeed beyond.
