Let's enjoy wargaming as a fun, social, laid-back hobby! Farseer Khaiell

Every wargame enthusiast feels an urge at some point to participate in a huge battle. Such an event is something nice to have experience participating in but ultimately it is the stuff the dreams are made of - not something you really want or need in your life.
