Which is my point John.
If WAB had been better supported then we probably wouldn't have gone down the Colonial route and everything else we've done recently. As it is, i've invested too much time [aye and cash] in Napoleonics (15mm and 28mm), SCW, WW2 28mm and now 28mm Colonials with LaSalle, Black Powder, DH, Impetus, Darkest Africa & S&tF for WAB now to be more than a minor part of my gaming [at Lenton].
I played Tommy last Thurs - Greeks v Carthage. It was Ok, we had a laugh. Greek Hoplite armies are almost unplayable now but hey-ho [yes, that would be for me now to find a way to make them work but having lots of light troops wasn't how i themed the army and i'm not about to invest and more time/money in them to find out]
