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."

Teaser: Old Macfarlane's Farm

Today I played out a test of both rules and a possible scenario for Huzzah, twice. Just a smple scenario but I've found that at a convention, I'd rather have a simple, fast paced game that ends decisively than one that has to be called without a decision because time has run out.

More tomorrow.


  1. I have no idea how it played but it looks dandy!!!!!

  2. Well, that IS a teaser! I await tomorrow...
