I got the word that Donald Featherstone passed away last night.... He was, without a doubt, the father of modern miniature (historical) wargaming. Starting with his book: War Games (1962), Featherstone (in the UK) was almost single-highhandedly responsible for the growth of the hobby with his now famous newsletter and numerous books. So well-regarded was his written work that at one point Games Workshop required their game designers to study Featherstone's book Skirmish Wargames.
He will be missed.
