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."

There are men coming down from the valleys.

The Black Fox is recruiting  again!
New recruits from Skrubee Province,
the paint on them barely dry.

There is word of a valuable shipment of arms and gold being moved through the Whoulden Hills and a call to gather to the Fox and strike a blow against the Redcoats.

A band of the Black Fox's Freedom Fighters.

Chris de Berg's Revolution Trilogy on Youtube.


  1. What's the point of a redcoat, if not to strike a blow against?

    1. Depends on whether or not you're wearing it really....

  2. Striking a blow against redcoats is never a good idea!

  3. A wonderful and colourful band of brigands or freedom fighters.

  4. They’re not just running away from the Spanish Train by any chance?

  5. Are these home cast figures Ross? They're very nice.
