Tension is building?

Who has the oddest army?

Whats the most popular?

Only insight I can give is that every base of my army has a horse, no surprise there

Looking forward to it

No, Percy is just one of the sidekicks. The actual leader goes by the name of Edmund and is one of the truly Great Commanders of history.*

Richard

Thank you for these. Could I ask you to double check the entry form for 'Simo Leroy-Mayer'? I have a 'Simon Leroy-Mayer' in the rankings already I beleive (and I have got his ranking wrong already), I presume it is the same person, especially as he is paired with the MadAxeMan... Enough chance of me getting the rankings wrong as it is...
