Well, very pleasant news this way comes. The other day I got an email from a editor I'd written an article for some time ago in a wargaming connexion. In the message he said that there was a little money to be shared out amongst contributors.
Anyway, knock me down with a wet noodle, but there are two armies soon to be heading Japanwards - of the beautiful Legio Heroica figs, no less - courtesy of said editor!
What a wonderful surprise!
