Introduction Hello there, my name's Brian and I'm from Edinburgh, Scotland. I've been a wargamer (historical, preferably) since about 1970 when my father bought my brother and I our first boxes of 1/72 Airfix Commandos. Good old Dad! And good old Airfix! I spend a lot of my time now wishing I had more time for wargaming...
