Pardon the obscure oath (a great favourite in my schooldays, where real swearing could have got one into trouble). We ran out of gas yesterday evening, and today the gasman came to deliver a new cannister; passing through our outer room, he did a double-take seeing my Dacians, then asked in fair English "Are those 1:200?". Turns out he's a D. an D. nerd who hasn't heard of real wargaming hitherto....

Fingers crossed you can show them some historical games in action. Also would give Lee someone else to beat Wink Cheesy.

Lee's led the Cavaliers in the last three battles: one draw, two defeats.
