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."

Newsflash: The Black Fox has returned!

We interrupt your scheduled post on Atlantican history and culture to report that the Black Fox has been seen and is being accused by officials of the Faraway Trading Company of encouraging resistance to tax collectors.

Reports of a clash between company troops and members of  the Bretheran indicate that casualties were heavy for both troops and rules. Details to follow.


  1. Excellent - I shall get in some popcorn.

    I also note a sighting of the Pink Goat, I think?

    1. Might be a bit early for popcorn, there were no reports on hand. A Grey Goat surely? Must be the sunset reflecting.

  2. There are some important changes in the current draft! I have some doubts:
    I couldn't find the number of meleé dice.
    When shooting at long range and/or enemies in cover: infantry loose 1 dice per stand or unit? Are long range and cover are cumulative?

    1. Yes sorry about that. Most of these were the alternate choices I had been considering so had been close at hand. Not sure the long range will stay, probably not I did not remember it even once.

      It will probably be Monday before I get some troop charts up and start proof reading. Please see the new post for more info.
