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."

-Don Featherstone 1918 - 2013

Push on! Push on!

Its just been one of those weeks, nasty cold, nasty weather, urgent yard work when the sun appeared and......well, who's never been there?

But if there wasn't time, energy and enthusiasm to push on full speed, one can always take smaller bites.

I'd already decided to simplify the details but now I decided to cut the batch down to 3 figures and finish them then go back for the next 3.

And for a bit of inspiration:


  1. They seek him here, they seek him there..... a lovely film

  2. Agreed, and I had to watch it again last night. "Sink me..."
    My mother, now 95, introduced me to it back in my teens; still the best version!
