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."

Special Edition from the Kapelle District

Old Cords interferes in the Kapelle. War looms in the North!

Old Cords leads an Oerberg Commando across the border to aid rebels

Early report has been received  of an unexpected  action in the Kapelle District. In response to attacks on Her Majesty's surveying parties while carrying out their official duties, Colonel Marten was dispatched with a column of troops to being the rebels to justice. Upon approaching the village reported to be harbouring the culprits, our soldiers were met not only by armed rebels but by an armed column of Oerbergers led by Old Cords himself. After spirited engagement the Oerburgers were sent packing and the rebels punished.

Her Majesty's representative reports that the entire incident was resolved in most satisfactory manner in every sense but that war is sure to follow if Oerberg refuses to disown the act and surrender Old Cords for justice.

Her Majesty's forces on the march to bring rebel marauders to justice
More details will follow when available.


  1. I fear Oerberg may prove unreasonable.

  2. Ross mac,

    Old Cords looks like a tough old bird, and I hope that he proved to be as good a fighter ... even if he did lose!

    All the best,


  3. Always a thrill to see the Noodle. I'm a loyal reader.

    1. There seems to be a significant correlation between fun had in preparing, playing and thinking about the background of a game and the appearance of an edition.

  4. Old Cords is a thorn in the side of the Queen's forces, so always glad to hear that he's been seen off properly. Good old Noodle, our trusted voice of imperial justice! I must renew my subscription.

    1. I can send you a paypal address for your renewal..... :)
