Wanted to use that phrase for ages! However this has nothing to do with either Julius Caesar or Romans in general its actually a reflection on our first attempts at the Rubicon WWII 1/56 plastic kits and a comparison to their most obvious competitor Warlord.
No not the horse racing but our experience at the new venue for Derby Worlds this past weekend and what better way to get back into doing the blog after a prolonged absence – too busy, too tired. too everything.
Now we are well aware from the gossip on the day and tweets since then that the traders were not happy but this is written from the perspective of a gaming club who put on a demonstration game and briefly got to wander around the show as a break from pushing figures around.

But table size sorted after a little bit of tension and the closeness of the other games was perhaps just a reaction to the abundance of space at Donnington?
