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."

Now that Jeff has me thinking mini-campaigns, 
Are we going to the jungles of Northern Atlantica?
Nku Khuland?

I'm not sure I have enough 54's ready to go and the 40mm Atlanticans sure aren't ready yet.
Maybe an ACW version of Steve's entry?  I'll have to check troops vs force levels  and think about the impact on my painting motivation. Luckily, I've already started a 25mm Ancients version, my Bactrians vs Ron's Chinese.


  1. Somehow it didn't surprise me that you're first out of the blocks Ross.

  2. To be honest, it was a coincidence, a game was planned and Ron had set up the ambush. The rest just followed.
