It's by no means an open-and-shut case that He ever actually existed. We may have to start re-dating ab urbe condita, as the Romans did - except that archaeologists have solidly demonstrated the City was at least two hundred years older than the Romans realised.

More likely 6BC.

However his existence is now unrelated to our year counting.

The first year AD/CE was 1. Before that it was 1BC/BCE.

1st 10 years are 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10.

Ergo all decades start on the x1 year.

Unless you can show me a decade with 9 years in.

Except it wasn't, in "1BC/1AD we were still counting the years Ab Urbe Condita, or the nth year of the reign of king so-and-so, or whatever.

Given that, as this thread shows, the "year of our lord" is a pretty random pick anyway, so far as I'm concerned and I seem to be far from alone in this, the 2020's will run from 2020 until 2029 ... because the 2020's being 2021 to 2030 is not just random it's bloody silly too.

Isn't it appropriate that this discussion revolves around the number, TEN?  Smiley

A minutes has sixty seconds - 0 to 59.

An hour has sixty minutes - 0 to 59.

By the same logic, a decade has ten years in it - 0 to 9.

I'm counting 2020 as the 1st year of the 20's, I'm quite happy for others to do differently.

Iff there was a year 0, you're quite right. And maybe we can start gaming the 31YW and the 101YW and the 8YW....

Anyway, I have a question that may re-rail the thread (he said, feeling slightly guilty for derailing in the first place, and with no real hope of re-railing), with the upcoming Greeks, and the promise of TB Line ancients on the horizon, could you comment on how compatible they are?
For example, the Korean War range are rather slim compared to TB Line, and would look slightly odd together (and not just because of the difference in period.) The greens for the Greeks look rather chunkier (and I mean that in a good way.) Would they mix in one unit?

I'm not exactly sure to be honest.  The TB Ancients were the first ranges they did and they tend to be a bit chunkier and a bit taller I think.  The TB Middle Ages stuff matches in great with ours, but I think they'd moved to a different sculptor for those ranges. 

Unfortunately there aren't many Greeks in the TB ranges.  We'll have Republican Romans, Carthaginians, Gauls, Numidians, Iberians, Italics and then one code of Epirotes!

That logic only works if there was a year 0.

That would likely be the 1990s since “everyone” celebrated the millennium in 2000…  Undecided It wasn't me!
