I love the western desert campaign. But that might be because i love the Matilda II. I want to get round to doing an armoured force of Matilda II’s for Bolt action at some point.

Also the lady who came with her husband just to pitch in is a saint. Someone should pick her up some flowers.

I have not jumped in on any historical war games yet, but bolt action looks like it would fit my skirmish kick.
