AmmoBunker Newsletter, May/June/July.
Brought to you by SC.
So, the England football team's tour bus is on it's way to the airport and Emile Heskey has lost several pints of blood after the team entertained themselves by playing pin the tail on the donkey. But nevermind, 2014 is not long away and with any luck we'll have the same line up ready and willing to crash out embarrassingly.
From Old Guard.

Congratulations to Cadian Lord with his nostalgic take on "Boarding Action". Another worthy entry to our Hall of Fame.
A word from Dean:
I feel bad because I normally just throw a line or two down and let Rictus do the banter stuff so I am going to endeavour to tote my own weight around here. So let me announce the competitions.
For the month ending June 21st the SB Challenge was won by Hazmat with a very nice Centaur grenadier transport.
The Scratchbuild Challenge will continue this coming month. Get in on the discussion on theme and Duration here:
July Painting Competition:
Digits has been overseeing the painting competitions and this month’s theme was “Boarding Action” and it was picked up by Cadian Lord with his excellent retro facehugger….
Tale of a Couple Dozen Gamers:
If you have an army laying around waiting for paint and no motivation then you should probably look in on this continuing Competition that will run until April 2011 that may inspire/prod you to actually finish an army. Please note that this is a team event.
Special Modifier for July is: Double points for Cavalry:
4 points each for: Bikes, Jetbikes, Knights on horse, Guardsman on ostrich... Caster on horse... You get the picture....
Also of note are a couple community threads that have sprang up in the last two months where you can join in and give/receive encouragement:
WFB Fantasy community thread:
And the existing Flames of War thread:
I’m personally impressed at the amount of community support each of these threads bring in and I wouldn’t mind a few more threads like this. If you and your group would like to start up a specific community thread then go for it! The more the merrier…
Verily, this vichyssoise of linkage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me Dean.
Note from Rictus
