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."

-Don Featherstone 1918 - 2013

There's a battle brewing

A different time, a different place.....


The French advance guard wonders how close the Emperor's troops are and what the morning will bring?


Looming out of the morning mist..........

  3. Lordy, and here I was expecting to see the next battle feature the Red Cap and Queen's Troop of horse artillery! Your flexibility is impressive and entertaining! Looking forward to next moves.

    1. 40mm from at least 8 different sources, from Elastolin to Irregular to my own original homecast. The French Gensdarmes date back to 1950, including my first knight!
