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."

The Last Bridge - Intermission

As the battle begins, the balloon rises into the air.

The game has been played using 40mm figures and my Hearts of Tin rules. It is set during one of several Anglo-American wars which didn't happen between the Aroostock War and the Oregon Crisis. 

Battle report tomorrow. 

 Meanwhile, looking out my games room window, a Green Christmas has been followed by:


  1. The weather outside looks frightful . . . let's hope the game inside is delightful . . . and so, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    (It is going to anyway, according to the weatherman out here . . . who also claims that we will see some flurries tonight, tomorrow and the next night and day.)

    By the way, Ross, is that a blue horse on the bridge? Or is it a trick of the light?

  2. Our snow in Scotland is finally going as your's arrives!
    I look forward to the next posting- in the meantime keep warm and play on...
