EXERT FROM APPENDIX 1 from Don Featherstone's Battles With Model Soldiers
(The book that got me started.)

"Nothing in these pages is a dictate, no word says you must or you shall do it this way. On the contrary, the book sets out from the very beginning to stimulate the reader to think for himself, and to use what he has read merely as a foundation for efforts and ideas which reflect his own temperament and character. Only in this way will he obtain maximum satisfaction from the hobby of battling with model soldiers."

For we have got the Maxim and They . .what? we don't?

But you're working on one? Great, I'll ask the enemy to wait.

You're working on one for them too?!??

We're going to need new doggerel.

Wood and Wire.
If when I'm finished, I have something easily recognized as a toy MG, I'll be happy.

    We gonna win this war.
    We gotta machine-gun, you ain't got one;
    You gonna be beat full sore.
    We gotta machine-gun, you ain't got one;
    You'll shake to your marrow's core.
    We gotta machine-gun, you ain't got one;
    You won't wanna fight no more.
