Re: Scrap Heap Challenge - first vehicles added

My brother "borrowed" my Airfix Romans and Ancient Britons. When I got fed up asking for them back Airfix had decided not to sell them so my Romans are ESCI reinforced by HaT and my Gallic/Celtic opposition are Airfix Britons and various HaT, ESCI and other barbarians. My chariots have the solid whe...

Re: What`s everyone up too?

I was regular a contributor to the Journal over many years but recently I have stopped writing articles while this and similar threads run. The reason is that I wrote the articles after long research for the benefit of the membership of the society and not for the benefit of non-members. Now I get t...

Scrap Heap Challenge - first vehicles painted and more added

Last week I was picking up our grandchildren from school. The new deputy head teacher asked to see me and I feared the worst. But no, he wanted a chat and showed me a newspaper clipping from our local paper. It was titled something like "Thirty Years Ago" and was a opy of an article about a wargames...

Re: What`s everyone up too?

That is a plan, one that is doomed though. Why? The central issue is not what format the "Journal" should be presented in. That is a side issue that seems to fill pages, more than enough to fill several "Journals" in fact. What you have failed to address is the core of the "Journal" - the contributo...
