Nick's News!

Bolt Action & Flames of War

For both systems my US forces are based around a detachment of the US 101st Airborne Division known as the "Screaming Eagles"

I have just returned from a trip to Bayeux in Normandy and apart from visiting the Tapestry I was able to make time to visit three of the D-day museums and spend a day at Omaha Beach.

Was it odd building sandcastles with my kids on a landing beach? Maybe a little, but it was an unforgettable experience.

Of course, I could not pass up the opportunity to pick up some souvenirs:

I may feel a bit like when Joey in Friends pretended he owned a Porsche and decided to kit himself out from head to toe in Porsche stuff the next time I go to the games club - but I think that it will add to the 'immersing yourself in the experience' aspect..........
