Marlborough's wars I can't remember. I was French and mainly used Dixon's and Simon was British and mainly used Roundway Miniatures. Both ranges were sold at the Keep at Devizes so we would pop up there to restock from time to time. Who won? I don't think we finished it. This was quite common with us.
