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."

Sittang Pretty

Boxing Day, time to take the gloves off and play a game! 

(or at least start one in between social obligations.)
Old School scenario, older toy soldiers, contemporary rules.

I wanted a scenario where some of my new sappers would have a chance to build some entrenchments and/or blow a bridge. Didn't take long for one to come to mind.

    1. It seems to me I've heard that song before
      It's from an old familiar score

  2. Hi ROSS,
    Glad your getting a NEW Game underway - I've plans to do some Sculpting this afternoon on 'Boxing Day'...bit hot at the moment -though things will cool down this evening to enjoy the Workshop. Like your Blue Stream terrain - very nice. Have fun there. Cheers. KEV.

  3. The puns to text ratio is high today. ha ha

    (in case it's not clear, I applaud you)

  4. A good way to continue a holiday. Merry Boxing Day

    1. And this morning's gaming was followed by enjoyable dining out. Good way to spend a holiday.

  5. Enjoy your Boxing Day toy soldier battle! Thanks for all the entertainment and inspiration your blog has provided this year.

  6. Ross Mac,

    It's a great scenario that can be adapted to a variety of historical periods.

    All the best,


  7. It is and it has been. Can't remember a flop despite different rules, scales and periods.
