Twenty Questions

Thanks to Drax for the heads up!  
Posties' Rejects 20 Questions

Favourite Wargaming Period, and Why?
1990? Advanced Space Crusade, Confrontation and Rogue Trader saga's.  They weren't wargames, took forever, but they were fun.

Money no problem, I hear that Duxford and Bovington have 1:1 scale WW2 wargaming materials, I'm sure Flames would scale up fairly effectively?

Raiders of the Lost Ark
Die Hard
Moulin Rouge
Singing in the Rain
