Hey hey, MiniDozer pushed one of Alex's ants out the arena during a fight... admittedly he wasn't really paying attention at the time, but I take it as a win! :P

But yes, antweights do rather have the upperhand normally :L

I wasn't scoffing Rory, I genuinely think taking on 6 at once could be quite hard! Unless you're Kwijebo...

That sounds like fun :) could we cover the nanos with Velcro and some on the arena roof to see if they stick?

Watched the video, it's like ants 10 years ago...

can't wait to see that Andy. what is the nanoweight walker limit? i should think considering the flea and ant walker limits allow you about half again the weight of a roller the nanoweight limit would be 37.5 according to my calculations?
