Thanks Santa!

A quick look at my toy soldiering-related presents:
I had been coveting this book since before it's publication date (October 2012) and on the strength of the quick flick through I've so far managed it looks very interesting.  I already had a vague idea for a game, so watch this space.
While reading I'll be able to quaff tea from this splendid Airfix mug.
When the book goes on the shelf these alarmingly bright green bookends can hold it up!  The 1/32 scale Tratvian cavalry officer is there for scale.
These really are big lads - 175mm tall!  I wouldn't rule out their appearing in a game...
Merry Christmas everyone!

Phantoms FG1, FGR2 and especially F4J(UK) would look good in your game ;-)

During my initial flick though the book I chanced upon he development of the Green Mace heavy AA gun - I recall seeing such a gun in your company at Woolwich some years ago.

Is this a good time to mention the 1/144 Bear-D that I've just found under the Christmas tree?

Hmm. So we have a Bear, a Backfire and some RAF fighters...... Can you hear a plan coming together?
