Like a lot of others here, I built a lot of model kits in the 70’s/80’s (The Airfix kit of HMS Victory being an achievement, but still brings nightmares!) and seemed to grow from there.
I only started gaming in 1997 when I found a local club and before that I had a strong interest on Military History, so the research of a new period I still find enjoyable.
We, currently, have a healthy club that meets regularly on a Thursday night, with additional gaming at a friends house on a Monday night (Yes, I have a very understanding significant other!), so the social aspect of gaming rates very highly on my radar as well.
As for the unlimited sex….well that is something that comes with the territory and I have to put up with it! Ha Ha!
We try and keep our show list as up to date as possible for the shows we attend at Figures In Comfort, but as Mike says, it depends a lot on the show organisers as to how early you can go to press with a date.
