My other point is that we play multiple periods, each with its own ruleset, yet the market seems to always apparently to have room for more. Surely there must be a limit and there is sure to be some comings and goings of traders over time for various reasons? How many different rulesets does one really need?

Ah! But you forget that we need 3 rulesets for every period! Skirmish, company and division!

I agree. The hobby seems to be getting wider and thinner.

Phone posting at bath time Cheesy

Ironically I did manage to correct "/army level" but missed the front bit of total incomprehensible gibberish!

"You forgot operational/army level" if that helps Wink

Gentlemen, like an expert needle sharpener, you're making my point for me.

Surely they just enhance the point?

For *making* it you need a needle maker!

On the topic, you can go very deep if you want - either into fiction based games with established backgrounds (W40k etc), or into historical games where you dig deeeeeep into the period for a long time (recent 1866 Wargaming in History springs to mind, well done chaps! Or Bruce Weigle around the similar period)  or even your own imaginations.

OR with the huge breadth you can scream around periods and systems and scales like a loon, leaving a trail of half finished projects and only mildly creased rule sets behind you Smiley

I celebrate both - a hobby that can be either is a pretty neat thing!

You can tell where my interest lies - not in military organisation or theory. Get em on the table, have a scrap and lose.

Dang, that's a shame :/

Sounds like it's a going concern, just too much work on stuff he doesn't want to do? Shame, I'd just had some excellent samurai dwarves from them!

Another company I've never heard of, probably because it does faeries and the like.
