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."

Meanwhile, Back in Oerberg

Now that the Great War is over, the Queen's government has decided that its high time to re-assert its claims to the northern townships of Oerberg.


Troops and supplies have been collected with great secrecy and sent over the border with orders to seize Cowstead, the township capital, before Oerberg can react.


Of course, its pretty hard keep things secret on the rather porous Kapelle/Oerberg border.
