To quote Gunny...'Outstanding!!' Great post as ever Steve.
Good to see the Munrovians are planning ahead and formulating a coherent defence and counter attack strategy. however Cliff Sabre has cast his tactically expert eye over the preparations and would like to offer a few suggestions.
You're entrusting base security to a bunch of MAM?
As soon as you turn your back they'll be AWOL. Off tree hugging trying to save the rain forest or down the local skateboard park!
As you say Marx figures are solid, built to last troops, but you're putting Gen Custer in command of them. Three words...'little'..'Big'....and 'Horn'!
I rest my case!
..but on the plus side..
I'm sure Lt Gunn will rise to the occasion and prove his worth. His true Brit Tommy Gunn pedigree will shine through. I see a star in the making.
Getting the 'Supreme Commander' on track re the Gumtree and Ebay recruitment drive is a good move. A previously unaware Mrs M reading your credit card statement over breakfast is not an experience you'll want to have twice!!
Cooldude and Gunny will no doubt whip your troops into shape in double quick time. Just be prepared for Gunny to turn the air bluer than the recruits berets!
I feel confident the Munrovians will do well against the dragonians...but if they don't SKJ HQ will offer them sanctuary and asylum.
..well except the MAM, they can clear off to the local charity shop!
