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."

Now, where was I?

Another day of physical labour in the veggie garden done, rain in the forecast, Wednesday looks like Gameday.

But what to do? Prince Valiant, ACW or......

A shot from my last 54mm game.

Being at Huzzah! managed to enhance my feeling that as useful as the short, simple games are, I want a meatier option. I now have a pretty good idea of what I want but its past my bedtime so we'll see what the morning brings!


  1. Yes the convention experience seems to be to sample the smorgasbord these days and not to engage in the otherwise impossible large numbers of players at the table.


    Gone for now are the days of 16-22 players in a single Napoleonic game that may last for 6 hours yet give the amazing feeling of being part of a team!

  2. Some days you need meat, other days ice cream. Variety makes for interest, certainly for me.

  3. The cliff hanger ending is killing me! Looking forward to seeing what you have in mind.
