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."

General WinterTakes Over

So much for my winter campaigning! Its not very often that I've gone so long between posts but while this winter has not been record breaking, it has been one of the three or so most severe Februarys in the 35 years since I moved to Nova Scotia. Its been a bit like being back in Quebec! Its certainly been enough to disrupt my gaming and painting.

I did get in a solo medieval/fantasy game for my Gathering of Hosts blog but since then what time and energy I have had for my hobby has been sucked into working on the  Gathering of Hosts rules including a now abandoned attempt to harmonize it with the Square Brigadier.

However, nothing lasts forever and plans are afoot for next week.


  1. Hang in there, Ross. Don't overdo it with the snow shoveling. You're right, it'll melt sooner or later.

  2. Plans afoot, hurrah!
    ps do indeed watch the snow sholveling
