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."

Meanwhile...

Back on the table, the battle rages.

Turn 6: Red is putting heavy pressure on the bridgehead but Blue's attack is finally getting underway.

One day, when I get the shelves organized and the room tidied, I will take close ups of the shelves on both sides of the room  with notes.

  1. Ross Mac,

    Looks like quite a large battle ... and that there is a lot of action taking place on the tabletop.

    I am looking forward to seeing how the rest of the battle unfolds.

    All the best,

    Bob

    1. Bob, its a perception thing. I have played games with as many units but fewer figures as well as games the same size but on the larger grid of smaller squares but they all give a different impression as to size. There is a blog post in there somewhere.

  3. The Battle commences - those cotton wool puffs of smoke do add nicely to the drama taking place - I am going for Red ( because they have a lot of artillery). KEV.

    1. TG for black powder. They help me track the action afterwards as well as adding atmosphere.

  4. Wow, that is a major collection you have there! I too am going Red because they were clearly clothed from Her Majesty's surplus store (apart from the Frenchie looking zouaves!).
