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 Proof is in the Reading

There is no doubt that a good proof reader would be handy.

Having fixed all the errors yesterday, I've just correct a sluagh of typos, obsolete references, etc that crept back in while I was sleeping as well as adding some clarifications around formation changes. The link to the latest draft of MacDuff is back on the list to the left.

    You know there is nothing like putting something out there to make the hiding typos spring their ambush! I find this out everytime I hand out an exam to my students!

    Ok now I've got questions.

    1. Counterbattery fire - can you take out a gun? Does this count as a special effect under 5.13?

    2. Canister fire - is it lumped in under short range artillery fire?
