Merry Christmas From Hesse Seewald

I want to wish all of my blog followers a Merry Christmas full of family, wonderful presents and a joyous day of celebration. I have posted a picture of our Christmas tree prior to the ransacking of the presents. :)

There is not much to report on the wargaming front, other than to report that we had to cancel our game on December 14th due to the snow storm that hit the Midwest. The silver lining in that cloud though was that the prospect of a game had me painting more Minden Austrians and Prussians for the game. In other words, I made a nice dent in the To Do list.

In a few more days I will start pondering on my plans for the new year and look back on the events of 2013, but for now, I will enjoy some holiday family time.


  1. and to you good Sir hope you have all had a wonderful time.
    Here's to a successful 2014

    I spend my Holidays very similar, so all feelings are absolutely familiar!

  9. A belated Merry Christmas, and all the best for the New Year. Good luck with the figure range for 2014 - hopefully most of the "hard yards" are now over and you can start to reap some reward (they do look like absolute quality).
