  7. Very interesting Simon. I especially like the photos of Boudicca vs Romans and Dave`s sci-fi Gladitorial table set up. It was almost like being at Salute in person seeing so many cool photos.

    Now that I`m finally able (space and time wise) to get to enjoying fantasy once again, I can get back to all the blogs I`ve not been keeping up with (a whole years worth, wow). Love my historical games, but I have really missed the other side of the hobby too.
