Manor House is 'Godfrey's Cottage' which I have here if we don't use the club building.

This has definitely been to partizan. First show game we ever saw. Was at kelham hall. I would guess 2013.

Rob Farley

Salute 2014 was its first appearance. Partizan 2014 I think. There's been a few others as well, it did the rounds that year.

I have some gravestones
The boy's toys: SAGA Anglo-Saxons;  Bolt Action Soviets 1,000 points;Mordheim Goblin/Vampire gangs; Necromunda Bax's Stabbers; Uncharted Seas Shroud Mages; Dystopian Wars Russian starter fleet; Wings of Wibble; assorted plastic spacemen, Mahdists,French Foreign Legion, Colonial Egyptians; AoM undead.

Mike Whitaker

Work Needed:

The graveyard needs (somehow) de-warping.
The boards need a touch up and maybe a re-grassing.
The Home Guard could do with a retouch on their paint, and varnishing.

Things to consider:

Maybe change the scenario a bit just for variety?
