Marc,

Have you concluded on a theme? I would be happy with open and would be looking to choose between Italian wars and latter half of 17th century!

I'm happy to make it open. I suspect that will mean lots of mid-late 17th armies, but an Earlier army would be welcome

Has to the first time I've ever heard Dave Allen and Richard J-C described as "Exotic"! Dancing anyone? :)

Are you the same Farnborough group that puts on "Valhalla" every June? I only ask as I can't find anything about this competition on the FWGS website, and I would be interested in entering next year, as I only live over in Haslemere (I'm not a prospective member unfortunately, as Friday evening and Sunday are non-starters for me).

Marc - That's very kind of you, but I'm afraid I have prior commitments this weekend. I notice your comp is 25/28mm, rather than the more commonplace 15mm, and tends towards the Wars of Religion/Duty & Glory lists - is that usual with your group? If so, I would be looking at something along the D&G line.

I've sent you a PM. We meet on Fridays at the Elles hall - we've got a few FOG players with a mix of 25mm and 15mm armies

Thanks to Marc for a great day. Actually its Ben Jones, not Ben Cross, don't think I was cross all weekend. My apologies go to Lance who I fought in the last game. who met some of the best dice throwing I have ever done, and his Swiss just didn't know what hit them.
