mmm given its size not really :D
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

It's not the size that matters... :wink:

Some great shots there, chaps, really good of several friends in VME, and some really nice action bits too.

Hi Lucy ah but with Siege engines it is better a small full scale one properly made than a cloppa toy

You forgot the Harrington Household from your list of cast (without who your saturday night would have been less exiting and a lot quieter).
