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."

Rumours of my demise.....

Been that sort of week, no games, precious little time spent painting and just a little time  spent editing MacDuff and making choices where various copies have differences.

SO.........here's another flashback, this one from December 2011:

16thC Holding Action


  1. I know what you mean.

    Nice pic! I should try some outdoors photos.

  2. Spiffing stuff. I always wanted to do something with `knights in armour` but then again I always wanted to do Cowboys and Indians as well. However, Cowboys (and Indians for that matter) fit nicely into my 19th century Spanish/Mexican theme, so they won out in the end. But it really was a close call. 1/32nd medieval is quite doable in plastic as they are easy to obtain... but maybe next year.

  3. The 16th Century never gets old—nor do accounts with such charming figures.
