  1. Great Pictures. Very good event. Disappointed to have lost v Steve Charlton & Bill Wilcox, still that's what happens when you play like a numpty LOL

  2. Good showing, well done! Some great looking armies there too.


  3. Lovely pics of some very nicely decorated tables and well painted models.

    Well done!

  4. What in the world was Wilcox doing in Cardiff? And how did you boys keep him out of the top ranks? What a world...
