They have arrived! I almost bowled over the postwoman when I saw her walking down the garden path with a big box, knowing it had to contain my Wargames Factory WSS Infantry. She now thinks I’m completely nuts, but that could have something to do with me skipping back to the house with the box […]

These books are exceptional and are also exceptionally expensive, the trick is to pick up an out of date second hand version which can be done for relatively sensible quantities of mony. I have two one from the 80s and one from 2002. The later ones ten…
