Early 1963 Featherstone rules update

featherstone-3Recently I uploaded a set of early 1963 Donald Featherstone rules  from his 1963 book Tackle Model Soldiers This Way that several WW2 gamers were interested in.

I noticed today a reference to these 1963 simple rules in Stuart Asquith’s interesting article in Lone Warrior’s free download articles. It has the wonderful article title of Comfortable Wargaming (now there’s a book I would buy if it had a title like that!):

It’s his Hook’s Farm / Little Wars style adaptation  of Donald Featherstone’s 1963 Horse and Musket rules, adapted and made freely available with Featherstone’s permission. Well worth downloading and like the article, back to basics, simple stuff. Delightful!

As Asquith concludes, “If you want to shell out around £30 for a set of rules, then feel free, but you know, you really don’t have to – don’t worry about phases or factors, go back to simple enjoyment.”
