Ye olde English notwithstanding, this is an excellent looking command. We francophones appreciate well tricked out troops irrespective of whom you think you're going to beat with them when push comes to shove. Nicely done.

Grace, Mon general.

It is small but (as I like to think of it) perfectly formed!

You'll understand my French forces are quite extensive though... For myself, I'm not so much a Francophone as more a Francophile!

As to who shall beat who, I shall leave that to Mars on his day.

My best wishes and, Sir, the gentlemen of France may fire first!

Greg Horne

PS - In all seriousness, thanks for your very kind words, as ever.

The 44th in particular looks great.

As for the "Gentlemen of France" and firing first; In St. Maurice we wouldn't have it any other way. Looking forward to more.


P.S. I'm going to be interested in your Niagara campaign. The current fort is only about an hour's drive from my home.

Hi Mike,

I may have to ask you some topological questions about the area then!

All the best,
