The one childhood habit I’ve never been able to kick is Strat-O Matic, every Feb I order up last years rosters then spend the next 12 months replaying the pervious baseball season (cards ‘n dice) scoring every pitch ‘n every @ bat compiling stats with pen and paper as I go………….sick

Yes I was going to paint that today but I ran out of green. Perhaps I should run a "design-a-Christmas-tree-decoration" type thing?

That sounds extremely interesting. I bet if we do that this thread will hit an all time high with views and posts.

I know. Proof of that are the 11 people who voted on the beauty thread. Huge numbers, just HUGE.

No, to be fair, they heeded my call this morning and have taken up arms against the Dutch. So I guess they have a good excuse this time.

They need to be careful, because I just heard a BBC report that the French were offering to surrender the Dutch to us.

Like Warspite I have'nt done any military modelling for over 30 years, so I was tempted to get the Yamato.

But at £256 pounds for a 1/350th scale model, its a little out of my price range..


If you are still keen, there is one on Ebay for $214USD
Which is £141.
With int shipping it's £170

Well, I carefully clip the corners of ALL counters of my board games.

Sacrilege!! I know that clipping is popular but as a dedicated board-wargamer I reserve the right to leave my units intact, and RAW!! No SPI, AH or WiF counter has ever been clipped by my veteran snippers.
