  1. great stuff from th colour palate point of view. they needed to make more use of the picnic tables for cover!

    I liked the slinky looking woman who wandered across the foreground at one point. ECW re-enactors over here seem to have quite a few women acting as front line troops. Didn't spot any in Canada...
