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."

Another Pleasant Valley morning

Ahh, a quiet summer morning in Pleasant Valley, Faraway. The horse are being led down to the river, a courier has arrived with morning dispatches from Head Quarters, the local populace is about their business under the watchful eye of the Queen's soldiers.

But who is that lean and hungry looking fellow on a distant hilltop, eyeing the cattle?  

Looks an Oberhilse Frontier Light Horseman to me.

It occurred to me today,  while casting about for a skirmishy type of scenario, that while my initial mission was to play all of the TT Teasers published in Battlegames Magazine, I have in fact played only one of them in the intervening 2 years.


  1. Well you've got a whole string of Teasers left to play (I think that BG's up to about 20-25 now).



  2. Watch those chaps, they're distinctly shifty.
