EXCERPT 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."

Now that I'm finally moving on the (several years old) plan to consolidate my 40mm Atlantican (and historical 19/20th Century) armies into just two collections, I decided it was time to make my 1857 Naval Brigade pass their 2nd Boer War 4.7" gun to the army and give them the 24 pdr Lucknow gun they were originally meant to have.
