I enjoy playing with Toy Soldiers and I love the hobby; having said that, remember at the end of the day we are playing with Toy Soldiers.
When I posted my recent purchases on several popular miniature gaming boards, I was surprised by several reactions on one board:
Of course this allows people to afford to wargame and bring more people to the hobby, which are good reasons but:
1. Nice idea but their research is a bit sketchy; white facings?
2. The colours are in the wrong positions for honour. (Referring to British line infantry battalions)
3. OK! It just makes one wonder why wargamers, even those just starting in the hobby bother with tomes of historical battles, uniform research, sable brushes, paint etc. Oh! And in some cases, conversion, to painstakingly strive for uniform accuracy of each individual figure. The Napoleonic uniform was one of the top reasons for drawing me to the hobby. I wonder what drew others?
