Brummie's 20 Questions

Seeing all these interesting responses from the various blogs that I follow I though I'd have a go and stick my two pence in.

1.        Favourite Wargaming period and why?
It Would have to be Zombie/Post Apocalyptic Skirmish's. I love Zombie movies, Zombie Fiction. Deathlands series by James Axler is just brilliant especially the audiobooks. I have a thing about survivors standing alone fending off all the world can throw at them.

2.       Next period, money no object?
 I'd guess this would be sci-fi 15mm Probably an Aliens (books) themed games big monstrous research base. Full size Sulaco.  There is so many fantastic figures and vehicles about at the moment.

3.       Favourite 5 films?
 Sherlock Holmes (recent one)
Dawn of The Dead (original)
4.       Favourite 5 TV series?
The Walking Dead
Lost (well until they took sky away from cable)
Doctor Who (recently become a fan of this)
 Can only think of 4 ????

5.       Favourite book and author?
Tough very Tough It would have to be any of the Deathlands Books by James Axler but also J.R.R Tolkiens the Hobbit and all the Lord of The Rings books.

6.       Greatest General? Can’t count yourself!!
No Idea does Churchill or Lord Lovat count?

7.       Favourite Wargames rules?
Can't really comment on this properly  yet learning 7TV, Empire of the Dead and No More Room In Hell.  Out of the three 7TV is probably my favourite so far.
