    A well placed MG can reap havoc.  Any survivors of the cav there were super lucky!

    Being American I have no frame of reference for how AVBCW could historically have happened (all of my UK friends seem to adore the Royal Family) but I find the subject both fascinating and repellent.   Seems to sort of be a War of the Roses, but with modern weapons…

    Yes, the original idea was very much a War of the Roses concept, inspired largely by Ian McKellen’s brilliant 1930s-style film of Richard III.  For me it just gives me an opportunity to exaggerate the sillier aspects of British culture and my own family and local history.

      Exactly the reason we sometimes play “rednecks vs flying saucer people”!  haha!  One must maintain a sense of humor about life…
