Global Sets

    @CWO:

    A positive way to look at all this is to compare our situation today with where this hobby was (sculpt-wise) ten years ago, when Revised and D-Day were the newest products on the block.  Just imagine one of us travelling back in time to 2004 and saying this to our earlier self:

    Ten years from now, in 2014, the US, the UK, the USSR, Germany, Japan, Italy, ANZAC, France and China will all have distinct OOB infantry sculpts.  The first eight of those countries will all have 12 different types of OOB equipment sculpts at their disposal.  The first seven of those countries will all have nationally-distinct OOB sculpts for most or all of their equipment units – some of which will even be available in different sculpt models, depending on which version of A&A you buy.  Moreover, in 2014, an independent company will be selling many sets of high-quality supplementary WWII sculpts in compatible sizes and in a wide range of colours, and it will be planning to produce many more such sets – so many, in fact, that the company will have to prioritize them because it won’t be able to manufacture them all at once.  Which of the following statements most accurately describes your feelings?

    A) If I lived in that future world of 2014, I’d be disappointed at having to wait an undetermined number of months to get my hands on all the projected supplementary sets that aren’t yet manufactured.

    B) Since I live in the present world of 2004, I am very, very depressed at the thought of having to wait ten years to get my hands on all those goodies and I will therefore take up stamp collecting as my new hobby.

    C) Take me back to the future with you immediately!

    D) I’m obviously imagining all this, so somebody must have spiked my glass of beer with something illegal during last evening’s game of Revised.

    That is classic Marc! Your a great story teller, and I do get everyone’s point. It will come, when it comes, but it is just human nature, to get disappointed, sometimes. First it is dangling from your eyes, then it is gone, but it doesn’t mean they won’t be done.

    There, just not going to be done, any time soon, LOL.

    Thanks for the pep talk. It was great. 🙂

    I think the biggest thing we need from HBG right now is to fill in all the holes i.e. we need at least one unit to represent all the major types of units for all nations and all neutrals. It will take time and I understand the need for patience, but that is what I’m looking forward to.

    I agree, this is a must, for sure.

    Thanks for the pep talk.

    Glad you enjoyed it.  Calvin (from Calvin and Hobbes) once received a letter that he had mailed to himself a couple of days earlier. It said: “Dear Future Self.  You’ve seen things I haven’t seen.  You’ve done things I haven’t done.  You lucky dog.”  Calvin sniffled and said, “I miss my past self.”  Hobbes rolled his eyes and commented, “Poor him.  He wasn’t you.”

    I second the motion.

    I used to read those all the time. Those are classic comics. 😄



  • I just checked out there site and the battle of britian set and industrial and rails, South America, partisans, seaplanes and seaplane tenders are all gone and Superweapons UK and Italy were put in there place. A couple of those I would have liked to have seen the light of day some of the ones (read zombies) I don’t care if it comes out

    You’ve been absent, quite a bit. Have you been busy, lately? 🙂

    Judging by the fact it took me 3 weeks to answer the question. Yes very busy, working 10+ hour days 6 days a week and taking care of the mother-in-law.

    yeah I am. I’ve been so busy I haven’t even had a chance to put my Japanese set away. I went through it and checked it out but they are still in the box they came in
