Moved to the gaming section

Very impressive layout. To me the even more impressive bit is the absence of laptops everywhere. Nowadays when I game, it seems like everyone has one of the damn things open in front of them.

As for the coke, well you've got to have game fuel and lots of it.

I think the British battle group is too big. Me and nobby would have had that soviet mob, no problem and still had time for a brew :-) :-)

It´s a VERY impressive set up :thumbup: :thumbup:
I´ve tried counting them but how many tanks are there?? :shock:
