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."

Muster the Militia!

10 days till I leave for Cold Wars. I know I said I wasn't going to do frumpy militia but they were already cast and I realized that I could use a battalion of light infantry so.... the Pandours have been promoted to light infantry and the Burghers of  St. Stephen have been called to arms.
 Hopefully I'll have time to cast a 2ns company or the Bavarian Company of the Foreign Regiment may have to be downgraded. I think I'll have to have a flocking party sometime soon. (Damn-me, look at that, I forgot to paint the Captain's hair, quick, pass the grey.)


  1. Your militia manages to look the part and to look good at the same time: compliments!

  2. OK, I'm some kind of maniac of information retrieval, but the post devoted to Prince Michael's Pandours is not labelled (can be done afterwards)...

  3. Thanks Jeff & Abdul, and I have gone back and added labels to a couleof past posts, I was surprized to see that there were none.
