Re: Swindon Event February 2019

Thanks to Martin and Andy from GB for organising and Andy C for helping with the venue.

It was good to see some new faces and to play some of them. Not good that I was not feeling quite as good as I might!

Thanks to my opponents; Phil, Andy K, Mark, Andy C and Ed.

Re: Swindon Event February 2019

Hi Andy, personally I think that bow armed troops are too cheap at the moment. You won't be surprised to find out that I have modeled the outcome of an equal number of points of bow armed unit and a spear and shield armed unit.

Re: Swindon Event February 2019
