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."

  2. Love the look of the table! The openness of the table reminds me more of what folks like Max Hastings describes as the "look" of the Russian Front in WWI. I still can't get over the fact that there were nine soldiers for every yard of front in the west while there ratio was three and a half yards of front to each soldier in the East. It looks like there will be room to maneuver during the battle. Nice job.

    1. Thanks. I think that Western Front ratio is from the height of trench warfare and includes reserves, artillery etc as well as the front lines but in any event the early war was more open. The Germans could have used another battalion though.

  3. Nice added effect by having the mirror in the background!

    I am looking forward to reading the after action report on the games.
