There are those who still firmly believe that the border is when you reach Kirkdale, Sefton being an abomination best put to bed. After all, the West Lancashire Golf Club is in Blundellsands. Where I live in Formby the sea is one mile west of me and the boundary of West Lancs is 1 1/2 miles east of me; something of a Gaza strip.

Thanks everyone for the welcomes, just painting away for the competition haha

Ithoriel I love learning anything new so feel free to hit me with anything war related (in particular ancients and dark age) I have a degree in the study of religion and specialized in ancient Japan and pre Christian Europe, so pretty into obtaining knowledge where and whenever Cheesy

Leman 15mm is awesome donít get me wrong I played Flames of War for a while (am sure you know a WWII 15mm wargame) but thereís something magical almost a Godlike quality to 10mm *points to d Guyís post*

Thanks Orcs for the welcome I really appreciate it!  Smiley

And Fred am actually not far from Southport! Do you play any particular wargames or are you a collector?

Oh sorry didnít realize there was another page of posts haha

Leman I worked around Southport and Formby for about 10years, the discussion of the boarders of Sefton and West Lancashire has always been a most debated topic when I was on jobs  Grin

And thanks Steve J and T13A for the welcomes!  Smiley

You should see my 10mm FPW, SYW and WWI Russians, not to mention my post-Roman Britons for Dux Britanniarum.

That's actually a selfie.  i.e. it's a picture Westie took of himself ... not a Self Highland Terrier.

It's a long, sad tale that he's readily tell you. It involves a Bath bun, a visit to one of those places where fish eat your feet, and a feud with an unscrupluous plastic surgeon who also happened to be a member of the Kennel Club.

At least I think that's the case.  Undecided

Or was it a fish cake and a visit to Bath?

paulr thanks for the link! love your stuff Leman! Cheesy oh and also Leman am a big fan of Hail Caesar from Warlord Games and I've been tempted to get the Dux Britanniarum rules for a while, how do you find them?

(plus if you ever want a game am not far from Formby!)

By the way, what are folk painting for the competition? Am still stuck into my aliens. Not done sci-fi for a long time but this is my first attempt at 10mm so wanted something not overly demanding  Tongue happy with it so far like...I think haha  Grin
