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

MacDuff and the NQSYW at Huzzah 2019. (25 January 2019)

This year at Huzzah!, the Maine Historical Wargaming Convention, (see Huzzah! 2019)  Rob Dean and I will be running two games using With MacDuff to the Frontier and homecast, semiflat, 18thC, armies in our Not Quite The Seven Years War setting. 

The rules are quick to learn and suitable for novice as well as veteran gamers. A Quick Reference Sheet is available here.(link updated to version used) And an early draft of the  full 25th anniversary edition should be available here by May.

Friday night's game is an ambush scenario based on a CS Grant scenario. (click here for a battle report of a solo version from a few years ago).

Saturday's game will be an adaptation of the Sittingbad game in Lawford and Young's classic wargaming book Charge!.
