SYW Set Battle Ongoing........Part One

The Mongeham Militia on parade ! Left to right Rob, Me, Mike and Mike.
(Combined we four have over 200 years of playing and painting toy/model soldiers scary ! :)

We play on an 8ft x 20ft table using 2ft Hex terrain boards . Before anyone says that's to wide, go grab the aerobic step that nobody uses anymore and you have an instant fire step giving you access to the middle of the table :)
