I have solved it. It is the Nikon AF-S FX NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED Vibration Reduction Zoom Lens with Auto Focus for Nikon DSLR Cameras. Simple really. The Swordsman unit, known as the SD, shows a sword over the sheild. It is well known that the Roman's kept their Shield infront of their swords, hence the icon is reversed. If you reverse the SD you get DS. The heavy cavalry strength is 4C7. Drop the C because it is not a number, and view upside down and it looks like Lr - hence the DSLR. That was the hard part. The numbers are incredibly straightforward. 200-500 = -300. Multiplying the numbers on the SD gives you 25*4*4=400. Doing the same with the Heavy Cavalry gives you 12 * 4 * 7 = 332. Of course $B$ in Hexidecimal is 1024 decimal while 4C7 is 1223, or almost 200 more than the swordsman. However, in defense the strength of the cavalry is halved, giving 166, so should the swordsman attack the difference is 250 or therabouts. Two attacks would make it 500 - hence 200-500. Finally, the focal length is trivial once you note that the 5.6E is 1390 when translated into decimal. QED

When you want fruitful relationships, you have to engage in some tough love! I got a good crop of Lemons this year, but not an excellent one. My mandarin tree was similarly not very fruitful three years back, so I gave it a good prune. I appears to have forgiven... Continue reading

I have one, but I am not allowed in the office on weekends. I have been warned off.

I do not understand what you ladies are whining about. We played 3 turns of our game yesterday. I played 3 other ATG turns with my reliable friends, 6 Wars of Napoleon turns, 4 Pride of Nation turns and 3 Field of Glory 2 (PRESTAGS on steroids). I have stopped playing Command cos Spetz is only going to make continuous prevarications about why NOW is not of good time. Maybe Precious is not the only one who cannot say No.

You want to have a bath while lining up your PRESTAGS counters and as they cannot get wet, you sit in one bucket and put your feet in another.
