Kinda as the title says: How come at this point we don't have an area for Vanguard Minis (or at least Defeat in Detail) at this point but we've got say one for Seeds of War by DRM which, respectfully, doesn't even have anything rule/game related in it other than some very nice 6mm models by Markconz and L4 size comparisons for years now and pretty much all that could have been served in 6mm painting section. We've got an entire spot for Timeline 300 which doesn't even exist as a game anymore (and pretty much had zilch on activity anyways). I mean, at least Exodus Wars has a new owner that will be relaunching this year.

I know that sounds rather critical but just saying that perhaps we need a little less fidelity on the Science Fiction Army Scale Wargames section which leads to lots of tumbleweeds when a product range that's got a significant percentage of traffic and discussion for the entire site languishes down in Cast/Sculpt Minis is a bit bonkers, no? :)

Yeah we know L4. Free...on the website. Which is currently on hiatus and for the 2 years prior exploding on the homepage with SQL errors, so yeah... that rule set?

SoW which has 0. Nadda. Nothing. Kaput. Zilch. F-all going on with it FOR YEARS and no forum presence and we've got no Vanguard section?

I'm not blagging on DRM, they're cool but it's insanity to state they've got any traction on rules and gaming. People buy their stuff...to play epic, very much like VM at the moment. They should simply be added (and we should probably just trim and combine to a bone yard defunct games like TL300). It's not a zero sum game, dude.

Jimmy mate I really appreciate your support on this and thanks for bringing the subject up it would be much better for me as a retailer if I were more visible here.

Regards John

No problem, mate. I just look at it this way: DiD (OSM as ell but not the topic) was basically conceived, designed, and brought to fruition on this site by the members of this site. Very FUBU. :D It should get some love, that's all.

Absolutely! Perhaps replace Timeline with Vanguard?

Hi guys, and thanks for the note. John, I did get your PM but got swamped at work and then the board server issue hit. The short version is that I agree entirely and I will set up a board for Vanguard shortly.

Well JZ, I just wanted to let any one know that didn't ... ::) However, I know some have still bought DRM on that site. Here's the link to order - http://www.darkrealmminiatures.co.uk/store/home.php

Also for us Yanks, Microworld stocks some DRM ... ^-^

BTW, here's the link to SOW rules, from the DRM website - http://www.darkrealmminiatures.co.uk/do ... V1.0UI.pdf ;D :whistle


All that being said, I think we Do need Vanguard and even SEM CinC forum/boards ... 8)

Hi!

Agreed.

The board should reflect what is "active" currently.
