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 Siege of St. Lambert : Teaser

The defenders of St. Lambert stand to arms.

This game began as a simple desire to test out the siege rules in Duffy's Fire & Stone but as so often happens, it began to take on a life of its own. It is still an improvised set up cobbling together various bits but now it is a recreation of the famous siege of St. Lambert in the Second War of Accession. 

More to come.


  1. Nice looking fortress. Which company makes the round tower? The rest looks like GW's mighty fortress. by

  2. Jeez, Ross, that looks pretty damned good for "cobbled together".


  3. Wow!
    "More to come.": indeed we hope so!

  4. The round tower is a Hudson-Allen piece, I think.

  5. Great castle - look forward to reading more.

  6. A not inconsiderable obstacle Ross, your blog never fails to inspire.

  7. Thank you gentlemen all.
    Yes Rob, Rob is right, Hudson Allen, 3rd hand.
