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."

The Table is Set.

The Black Tower stands guard over the Pass.

A snowy/rainy Wednesday should provide time to play.

  4. That keep looks quite sinister. Instantly reminded me of some old 1960's Arthurian film I watched once.

  7. You just need a figure of the evil Black Knight with one or two of his minions doing something dastardly.
