Mittel-Nirgendwo

I plan on doing some housework and tidying up on the blog over the next few days.

I have decided that, among other changes, the links section is getting a makeover.

Originally I planned to link to all of the ImagiNation blogs, but that just isn't working. Besides, Emperor vs. Elector is doing it already! So, except for some personal favorites I will give just the link to E vs. E.

There are a few sites that I feel compelled to keep here, for various reasons. Mostly, though, they are the ones that most fire my own ImagiNation:

Stollen
Pils-Holstein
Hesse-Seewald
Battlegames
and some others

Personally, I am using Google Reader as my main blog source. Since it automatically tells me when there are new posts plus has folders for keeping things organized, I find it very useful. Now, if someone can just tell me how to read blog comments in Reader...

Since I use Reader, I can export my full blog list to anyone interested.

Also, I will be doing Army-specific posts showing each ImagiNation's order of battle with embedded uniform templates from the Not By Appointment plates, and also digipictures of the corresponding miniatures as they are completed. This will be an ongoing work for a few weeks.

In the meantime, here is my working map of the Imperial Circle of Mittel-Nirgendwo, where all of this lace and thunder is taking place.

Cheers!

That's probably a good idea to clean up the links. I haven't checked the ones I put on my blog in quite a while. A link to EvE would cover quite a few.
Yes, Google Reader makes keeping up with a lot of blogs much easier (but doesn't notify when someone edits posts like Jean-Louis does on his Monte-Crsito blog). I haven't found a way to view commentgs either, short of opening the post in a new window.

Very nice map, by the way. How did you make it?

I agree . . . a very nice map. It looks much more like the odd shapes of so many 18th century nations.

Thanks for stopping by.

The reason it looks nice and 18th century-ish is because it is a modern version of the original Duchy of Brunswick, circa 1914.

But then I removed the original names, inverted the whole map, and expanded the borders a little. That and the names were done in MS Paint.
