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."

We interrupt this blog for this flash report....
Yes, the Martians have landed at Ron's house. These are from the All Quite on the Martian Front range by well who ever makes it. Nice models and the game was fun despite the rule booklet's occasional lapses into unintelligible English and skewed points (which we ignored).
I'm not sure yet how much depth it has but we will play again. I might even finally build the Reviresco Martian Tripod that I bought 10 years ago.
