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."

Battle of Lookout Ridge. (Teaser)

In the middle of the Disputed Territory, in the middle of the wide Prairie, is a low hill known locally as Lookout Ridge. Its not much as ridges go but being the highest point of land for miles it makes a good observation post.

When agents reported that the Americans were planning to seize and fortify the ridge in order to set up an experimental Heliograph station, Colonel Marten was ordered to take a detachment out to see them off.

The American advance guard opens fire with  deadly accuracy.

Battle Report of this 2 Hour Square Brigadier version of a One Hour Wargame to follow Sunday afternoon.
