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."

2nd Teaser

No time for a full battle report tonight but here's a sneak peek as the Confederate attack goes in before the Union finishes its deployment.

Picture taken about turn 4, just before I paused the game to reorganize from 6-8 stand Brigade units back to 4 stand Regiments, swapped rules, and then continued happily for 3 hours ! 

More tomorrow! 

(Hopefully, got a full day of commitments.)


  1. Switching rules and organization mid game? I never heard of such a thing!

  2. Ross Mac,

    You are a wargaming tease on so many levels! I'm desperate to find out what happened on the tabletop ... and why you changed the rules and organisations halfway through!

    All the best,


  3. Yes! For heaven's sake finish the battle. As usual you have done a nice job in presentation. But I am wondering what would possess you from going to a brigade level game to a regimental one?

    1. The answer is in the latest post but its nothing very deep.
