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."

Sort of like Boxing

Today I ventured down into the Valley to meet a couple of friends for a Boxing Day wargame.
A few of my old 15mm Condé's Legion Dragoons now doing their part in Jeff's Napoleonic army.
Today's game was a 4 player Epic C&C Napoleonic game. We had various levels of expertise with the rules and we kludged a few things to convert an 8 player game down to 4 but it was a fun gaming day.

Jeff, Brent and Zack laying out.
Who won you ask? Why would that matter? Let's just say that the Russian army ably commanded by Brent seconded by yours truly, fought bravely and well and died where they stood. What more could one ask of them?

Next post, a look at the new French moulds followed later by a final solo game of the year.

  1. Looks great; the whole Boxing Day thing kind of mystifies us Americans, but an excuse to take the day after Christmas off sure doesn't! :-)
