I've no idea what size a Hoplite shield should be or whether both ends should be pointed. When I saw the pictures I thought "my word, they are nice."

Granted in an open forum where these are shown off before release and comment invited, sycophants aren't particulalry useful. If these have been caught before final production molds are made and are correctible, thats great.

As I am not an expert, the 1mm difference would not make an iota of difference. I suspect this would only be noticeable when held at the end of your nose and not from 3 feet away during a game. But I do understand some people have more exacting standards and a desire to have every rivet and button correct.

As and when these are released I can see me dipping into ancients for the first time in 20 years or so.

Well done Techno.

As others have said venting is important and based on what you have mentioned in other threads you have every right to

Compared to what I have seen on other forums it was very mild

Hugs mate

I say, steady on old chap. We are British - stiff upper lip and all that.

Anything more than a hearty handshake is far too touchy-feely.

Shakespeare and Jane Austen weren't good at spelling either.

HAH !!

I like to think that my spelyngs (Sic) aren't too awful (Sic), Alexander....
But s*dding he**.

Sometimes I wonder. I don't want to see  Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry

If you ever get the chance......Give a listen to "Old Harry's game", written and performed by Andy Hamilton (with a number of other thespians)......Jane Austen is portrayed as a foul mouthed horror....I can listen to that over again..

Agreed! Superb entertainment. I just love the bit where they all end up signing 'Abide With Me' in one episode. Cracks me up every time I hear it.

"I" before "E" except when ...

    My foreign neighbor Keith, the financier from Leith,
    fancies efficiently feigning the zeitgeist,
    and in good conscience forfeiting
    his ancient beige dreidel
    by the glacier
    at the height
    of his reign.

    Weird.
