    Could you stop beating up the fish, and then blaming it on us? :)

    Beating the fish makes a change from the usual dead horses :P

    But you can get more of them for the same cost outlay...

    With all the complaints it's getting hard for us Gods to determine whom to smite. :)

    /Sigh

    I love that we got a warning from a mod for us to stay on topic, followed by a dozen recommendations for the preferred way of serving fish.

    Food discussion is on topic for speculation threads. It's a tradition now.

    Fastest way to kill your gaming community is to stop supporting a good LGS.

    Easiest way to build up a player base is to sit in the LGS building, painting, and playing a game. I've grown multiple systems up from nothing doing this. Someone comes into the store and asks the guy at the counter about miniature gaming I'll get up and introduce myself, and find out what they're after and walk them through the various systems. Right now if they're after a skirmish game then I recommend Infinity, show them the terrain, which is usually out on display as I'm working on it right now, give them an overview and recommend some products.

    Our community has been through periods where there wasn't an available space to advertise games like this, mostly relying on local gaming clubs for meet ups. It is next to impossible to grow a new system through these because you can't advertise your game through clubs. New players, people who've never done or heard about tabletop wargaming, they're not going to just show up. Getting traction for game systems at clubs is like pulling teeth, at the time we were doing Warmachine and once the LGS opened up it allowed the WM community's playerbase to triple in a short period of time.

    Laugh but you need somewhere to do this and show off the goods:

    You want somewhere to advertise game systems to prospective buyers. LGS provide that service, online retailers while convenient, do not. If you can't find somewhere to show off your game you're never going to grow it and it will eventually die out.

    Sorry for the necromancy but the Szalamandra pilot is from the very first year of releases. She is not quite the oldest sculpt still in production. The zonds, dronbots, yaokongs and jazz hands interventor are older.

    You claimed you weren’t going to move to this forum iteration. So glad to see your bullshit didn’t change at all when you did.

    Is there a rough estimate when the Jan releases could be ordered via CB or the retailers? Is planning with the models for a tournament on 19-02-09 realistic?

    Good to see that the community can still be wonderfully toxic without my presence.

    Sorry for cutting your post down as it was a good one!

    I'd also add that it's important to stress, when you have a good community going, to the store owners that you have a good community going.

    Second fastest way to kill a gaming community, IMO, is to have store owners that feel the community isn't really "there".
