    1. Indeed! Lancastrians suffered -1 to all missile fire due to shooting into the wind. Great playing against you yesterday in the first round, David. Best regards, Dean

    1. Thanks, Phil. Actually it make it more comfortable - as wearing the padded arming jacket and the non-porous plate armor gets hot very fast. Warm regards and thanks for the interest. Dean

  7. I love that dog, reminds me of how one of my shih tzu's somehow always managed to be in a photo, invited or not. It was like his sixth sense.

    Love seeing you put on your armor and a great pose.

    Cheers
