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."

The Winter Campaign ain't what she used to be. With limited time and energy it was either plan and plot for the future or......
Atlantica in the 1890’s, before the Hougal Revolt.
So I dipped into OHW, pulled out a scenario, laid the table, hauled some shiny soldiers off the shelf and.......time was up. Tomorrow, a game of Square Brigadier.


  1. No finer sight then chaps in white helmets.

    Are those 40s Ross?

  2. Yes 40's. The White helmets are vintage OOP Scrubies, the Zouaves OOP Merten plastics, the Sepoys my own.
