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."

Intermission: MId-Winter Battle reports from the early years of the blog.

One of those weeks, not much to write about yet, so I've gone back in time:

31 Jan 2010: Bridge of Boats Battle Report.

and from 1 Feb 2011:
Part 1: Battle Report: Belmont Ridge

Part 2: The American Assault
(Link fixed)

Part 3: Finale

Sometimes its fun to look back now and then.


  1. Hi Ross. A fine assortment of past games - yes, it is good to look back on past experiences and at times come away refreshed to see that what your doing now is sometimes an improvement. Cheers. KEV.

  2. Just makes me want to play and play and PLAY.

  3. Cool pictures Ross. I like the big figures in big units

    1. Big? Ah yes, I don't think of the 40's as big any more :)

  4. I remember that Hearts of Tin battle, it is a great and epic story, though sadly the link to Part 2 in this post is broken.
