I was thinking whilst walking the dog ( I do my best thinking while walking the dog) about what Old School means to me , I know peoples opinions vary on this subject , so this is just my thoughts - Old style figures - Spencer Smith, Mini Figs, Hinchliffe etc which are painted in bright colours and coated with a high gloss varnish (modern Perry figures would not work with this style) . Single based figures - I like to knock my figures over when they become casualties and leave them on the table so the flow of the action can be traced by the fallen . Simple terrain - old Merit plastic trees , stepped hills and simple buildings . Rules I can remember in my head ! - Featherstone type or 'Charge' , these I realise are very luck orientated but I like them . I was wondering if I could use my collection of Spencer Smith Seven Years War figures for Featherstone Horse and Musket ? - where's the dog - I need to do more thinking !
