Be forewarned, the files are on the larger side so may take a bit of time to download.
I will continue loading in pics in the coming weeks.




Elkhorn Tavern and the troops
 
Keeping true to form, after succeeding at destroying Elkhorn Tavern, something even the Southerners couldn't do, a certain young lady attempts to crash the fences in a flanking movement. At the last possible moment her actions are thwarted by 29mo as GenP looks on in horror as they both envision the coming carnage if the fences are breached.
