Warhammer or Wargamer ?

   Not recommended
So once more I have not done a single thing hobby -related this week, though I did look at and comment upon many blogs (still trying to find time to catch up though!)
But this week I thought I'd give you a quiz that I've been thinking about for several years and did hope to have 10 questions, but like many projects it was never finished.

There are no right or wrong answers and it's not to be taken seriously !

I'd suggest you  get a writing implement and a scrap of paper to write down your thoughts after each question (remember - you can't be wrong !)
