Season's Greetings from the newly commissioned Cavenderian Diplomatic Corp. (CDC) From left to right are pictured Herr Colonel Hermann Godfrey, Signori Vittorio Moretti, Signori Umberto Basso, Signori Paolo Cipriani and Monsieur Dashiell Jeansonne.
The newly formed CDC are to be dispatched post haste to set up diplomatic relations as follows Herr Hermann to the Principality of Hesse-Engleberg, Signori Moretti is to visit our esteemed cousin at the Reich Duchy of Beerstein. Signori Basso begs to study under the master standard designer David Leinenblatt in Freistadt Tipplebruder, Signori Cipriani to our ally The Duchy of Mieczyslaw and finally Monsieur Jeansonne is to be dispatched to Saxe-Bearstein.
If the goodly lords of these nations will send a postal address to Prinz Geoffrey their diplomats will arrive within the first month of the year. This is of course only the first members of the CDC and the Prinz's top aid Detlev is dutifully searching for the proper representatives to be sent to the Grand Duchy of Stollen, Soweiter League, Duchy of Pfalz-Kognat-Obersayn, Frankszonia, Hesse-Seewald and of course the perfect Femme fatal to be sent to Monte-Cristo.
I would like to give a special thank you to Nic Robson of Eureka Miniatures http://www.eurekamin.com.au/ for supplying the majority of the CDC and John the OFM for suggesting the figure with the tea cup from Eureka. If either of you has an imagi-nation the CDC would certainly make a visit.
I hope to send many diplomats out to other imaginations as I can and hopefully the diplomats will send occasional correspondence to Cavenderia through the EvE web-site. I believe going forward the figure with the tea cup will become the official Cavenderian diplomat figure as I like his snobby look, except for Monte-Cristo which will probably be Black Scorpion's Governor's Daughter figure. Below is a close up of the three Signories. I hope to bring diplomats with me to pass out during the SYW Association Convention in March as well.
Happy Holidays everyone.
