Apparently Legion4 was in the ARMY.

And attempts to be an apologist for war crimes. My Lai and Oradour-sur-Glane were a bit unfortunate, but tensions of battle and all that.

The nerd wars are hotting up. I think McLaddie has finally met someone that can out-bore him.


There's three of them having a competition.


You chipped in then, Derek?
Are you going to beat them down with your interesting spreadsheets?

At least he realizes My Lai was not a shining moment of brilliance for American arms. Who’d’a thunk it? Ralph admitting that the U.S. Army can do anything less than excellence?

and one of them is Kiley..... you can't DH Kiley Bill, he is the sort of interlecshul your shithole needs to give it a veneer of respectabilty. Without Kiley, it's all just thicko Reactionaries and a few deluded centrists arguing about whether Michigan is a fucking Socialist Dictatorship or not.

Mac has had multiple hissy fits at some poor bloke trying to flog his Kickstarter on TWW.

TWW really needs some cunt telling members to fuck off, well done you. :roll:

I would demand a grovelling public apology, an admission of being in the wrong and a promise not to be such a cock again, under threat of a permaban. Having to admit he was wrong would really hurt Mac ;)

But that's just me.

If “hissy fit” = “honest critique made in good faith”, then what would you call your dishonest critiques made in bad faith, Pricky?

Pissy fits?

Look, sunshine, the guy is trying to crowdfund his project. To me, that means he doesn’t have readies dripping out of his pocket. Michael Stockin can attest to how deep a financial hole running a small wargaming endeavor can dig for you, even when you make the right business choices. I worked for Devir for almost a decade, so I have some personal experience there, too.

The models, to me, are derivative and horribly so. It’s not an act of genius to produce a naval warfare game: there are plenty of fun and playable systems about. So it’s not going to be the rules that sell his system.

I am a member of his target demographic. I bought Black Seas as soon as it came out and play fantasy in multiple scales (3mm, 15mm, and now 28mm). I told him frankly and honestly what I saw as wrong with the project: to wit, the boats look like kiddie play toys at bathtime. I gave him examples of what I, personally, would see as cool fantasy naval models. And I wished him luck.

That is how I think adults should conduct their affairs. I would feel much worse about myself if I saw that post and ignored it while laughing behind his back, Brazuca style, made some typically hobbitish passive-aggressive “don’t mind me, but...” comment, or did the ‘Merkin thing and gave him an “also participated” medal.

Anyone who can put that kind of project together has a good chunk of what they need to make it in gaming. But if they aren’t seriously considering the esthetics of the figures they are selling, they won’t go far in miniatures and will lose a lot of money.

So while I applaud his gumption and desire to contribute to the hobby, as well as his ability to get a coherent project together and go after his dream, what I feel he needs is some serious, no holds barred critique of the type one puts together for an academic review.

As for “multiple posts”, I wanted to consolidate them into one, but Michael’s site wasn’t letting me delete old posts last night and I was too tired after four days of moving to figure out what I was doing wrong. I also swiped a fellow Frother’s description of the sails as folded napkins. Sorry for no attribution. It was the perfect description, though. So fair go: mea culpa there.

Paraphrasing Obama’s comments about Trump, if he can’t stand people making negative comments about what he does, he’s in the wrong business.

Thank you for bringing this up, Pricky. It gives me a public opportunity to lay out my logic.

Also? The dude doesn’t even provide a link to his kickstarter campaign. I predict tears before bedtime.
