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."

What Goes Around

(My new rebel pikemen, all conversions of original figures, 2 officers, 3 pirates, 3 infantrymen.

Here they are, brave lads, ready for the fray. Today's game was good but there was a familiar look to it of the "We've been here before" sort. The small, smooth green bases were a new experiment but of course the terrained washers and 8 man units aren't and MacDuff never seems to stay dead and buried for long.  Ah well, how would you know if something else worked unless you tried it? I
 believe the verdict is in: MacDuff for 1812/Atlantica. 

Actually while I sometimes feel like its been ages since MacDuff was dropped, a quick look over the last 4 years shows some 16 or so games of macDuff. Here's just a few of them.

In other news, the Noodle's illustrators are beavering away as we speak and a special edition covering the outbreak of armed rebellion should be out by tomorrow.

  1. I will look forward to reading the account (and looking at the illustrations, of course . . . and I do read the Noodle for the articles, not the centerfolds . . . really I do).
