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."

Its been a busy couple of social summer days and so blogging has lagged.

So, instead of a battle report, here are those Transylvanians, ready for action. I confess that I started finding all the detail and shading (which used to be the fun bits) tedious and decided that ready or not, I was done! Shiny toy soldiers are just so much more fun these days. 

Hopefully, when I finally get to writing a proper blog post,  I'll still be able to remember what happened during the fight for the bridges.
