Filled it out but agree with the comments here, the answers are so limited to give an unrealistic result.

Not sure what the purpose of this survey is. If its just to decide the content of next years magazines it fairly pointless, I refuse to pay £6 for a magazine with perhaps 3 pages of interest, when I can buy a book an a definite subject for that amount.

"I filled it in for the last time, I don't identify as a man I am one... FFS..."

Totally agree.

Oh, sorry - that means: 'we'd be honoured to be included with you' - sort of. :-*

And yet by that very statement you are identifying as a man

The question which always amuses me is how many painted figures do you have. While someone with a 28mm collection might know (and I've got about 150 28mm VSF figures) those of us with 6/10mm collections might struggle. Theres ~2800 bases for Spearhead and Modern Spearhead (again a guess), and some of those have an APC and 6-7 figures (do I count that as one or 8?). Likewise the Volley and Bayonet Napoleonics have 50 odd figures a base. I made a guess at somewhere between 10-15000 figures which I think might be a bit low.

Yeah, I found myself pondering this too. Are Warmaster strips one figure or six are my Project Wargaming Roman Legion blocks one item or sixty? Just fudged a figure in the end.

QuoteMe too.  'Identify as a man'.  What a load of utter BS.

We recently had a Diversity awareness course at work. It was aimed almost exclusively at the white staff and the way they behave towards those of African or Caribbean ancestry.

I tried to do it with an open mind , but thought it full of woke BS and "facts" that did not take into account the real world. However I thought that as a white man it was probably best if I kept mouth shut.

Two weeks later, I saw a colleague who for various reasons I had not seen for a while, and went to chat. He had just completed the same course, and was spitting bullets. He sounded off for some time about what total crap the course was, how the Woke people who had put it together did not know what they were talking about etc etc.

He said "I came to the UK with my parents from Jamaica, in the 70's and while I had some racism at school I have never experienced any form of abuse about my colour in 40 years with this company, and as for white privilidged I think its total B*ll*cks.  its courses like this that cause trouble"

"To every one in this office I was Roy and was treated the same as everyone else. thanks to this course  I am now Roy the black man, and have to be treated differently, lest I be offended"

I have since had similar comments (although not as vociferously put) by other non white colleagues.
