Paymaster Makes First Payroll
The newly appointed Paymaster of the army of Hesse-Engelburg has announced the payment of the first batch of promised sign-up bonuses for those responding to the call to enlist. Rumors abound as to which of the planned units will be on display at the first muster, and betting at the SiebenZiegen inn has been varied, with the odds favoring either the Grauerhimmel Fusiliers or Princess Gertrude's Own as the first unit to muster a full cadre.
There is no word yet as to when uniforms will be ready for any of the units, but it is expected that the muster will be made even in the absence of uniforms so that the cadets presently in training may display their martial formations to impress the populace.
Translation of the above to the real world: I've just today sent off an order for my first batch of RSM95 figures, and once they're here I hope to settle them into formation and get out the camera to record their arrival. We'll see how long delivery takes. Judging by the experience of others, I have good expectations for a speedy and accurate delivery.
