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."

A Glimpse of What's Been Happening in the Square.

The Queen's troops form a rearguard to hold off Oberhilse's victorious forces. 

Its a little hard to see the corner crosses of  6" grid marked onto the canvas sheet but a desperate test game has been played through to a conclusion on Turn 16 of a potentially 18 turn game. More in a day or so.


  1. Subtle, the way they should be.

    1. Subtle is good, natural is even better, if it takes, I'll go for the terrain patch look.

  2. Ross Mac,

    Very nicely delineated squares. The small crosses make it obvious without being too obvious.

    All the best,


    1. Thanks Bob, there were a couple of times when it was too subtle given the lighting in my room.
