Played Colin the Hittite today for a few 'practice games', and managed to run out West Franks, East Franks, Thematics, EMNAS, Andalucians, Feudal Spanish, Lombards, Fatimids, Tulunids and Norse Vikings. All the games were fun, with opportunities for both sides, and opportunities for the cuboid-of-doom to ruin the best laid plans of mice, men and DBA generals. One of the most nailbiting clashes of the day was when Frankish knights launched themselves upon a shield-wall of Viking blades. Fingers crossed for the cuboid in that one!! Won't say who won, but just that it's a tight one..... See you there next weekend, Peter. Hoping Stevie and Dunc can make it, too.
One word of warning....if you drive, sometimes the Eastern coast road to the venue gets clogged up, especially if Portsmouth FC are playing (/disappointing their fans) at home.
If you're Winchester way, maybe we could play sometime.

Definitely love to get some games in outside tournaments, the uni has a wargaming society but they only play gw games which i moved away from years and years ago now. I'll be coming by train, never learnt to drive as from London originally and now a uni student so can't afford it with seeing my kids every weekend (3/4 anyway)
I have a wee bit of a problem (other than still painting my army) I left my camp at my nans when I moved and my replacement has not arrived in time, could I borrow a spare if possible please tomorrow? Going to try to get there a bit early as well just so I am not rushing around.
