A visitor from Humperstein

Samwell Piepen,an ambassador from the neighbouring Duchy of Humperstein is reviewing the Changing of the Guard near the Ducal Palace in Tradgardland. He is accompanied by his new friend, Shredni Vastari, the ambassador from Borduria. They have much to talk about as they stroll together in the woods. A palace servant calls Vastari away to Court business leaving Samwell alone .Lost in a reverie of his own making he is startled by ethereal  pipe music and turns to see a figure emerging from the trees. Samwell can hardly believe his eyes.
Their eyes meet ,a certain sympathy is exchanged before the faun slips away ...

  2. A veritable Arcadia. The Prince Bishop of Arnheim is eager to add a satyr to his menagerie, so he can cock a snook at his arch enemy the Margrave of Trompenburg and say he has tamed Arcadia... a troop of jaegers is being prepared to make a foray into the Tradgardland forests (on the sly of course).
    I have been trying to get that Ral Partha satyr for a while now, let me know if you see another!!

    1. Tell me the uniform details for Trompenburg and I might paint up a jaeger or two to make that foray...

  3. We will watch closely here for jaegers...
    The satyr is of unknown make to me ( at least at this early point in the morning) but I will try to recall where I bought him from not too long a go...

  5. I'm pleased to see Samwell arrived safely. Not too sure of the company he's keeping though.

  6. Tradgarland is certainly a magical place. I wonder if Wolfinstein should send an Envoy?
