I enjoy The Miniatures Page (TMP). There are often posts that lead to investigations of things I wouldn't have imagined, or links to interesting sites, tips, book reviews, etc. But....there are always the posts...you know which ones.....they go something like this:
I'm building a 28mm Napoleonic Spanish army for use with Volley and Bayonet, and I'm wondering what the best source of uniform information might be?
Spanish? Why would anyone want to collect the Spanish?
I hate Volley and Bayonet. I only play Shako.
Shako isn't any good. If you're interested in a skirmish level game, try my new set on my web. It's titled "Flashing Blades of Bloody Glory".
Skirmish? You have to be an idiot to play skirmish games. Tactical is the only way to play. I think you're wrong using 28mm though. Everyone knows that 10mm is the only way to go for massed games. I use 10mm exclusively for my WW2 games. See my blog for photos and a review I wrote myself of my new WW2 game "Hitler Drives a Big Tank".
You're all wrong! Didn't you read his original post? I think WAB is coming out with a WW2 set that would work for him. Just don't use WRG - they suck.
He didn't even mention ancients. I think Osprey has a book on the French or something.
Where can I get pikes for my Macedonians?
Does anybody know why acrylic paint dries up?
And so on.....
