Don’t get me wrong. He’s correct 60% of the time. Maybe higher. But...
Anyone who is well read can achieve that score. And Kevin has a large library. Just ask him. And he once had brandy and cigars in Elting’s library.
But he has his opinions. Excuse me. Incontrovertible FACTS.
1. The British are steeped in perfidy.
2. Only the Regular American army can win battles.
3. Irregulars are unreliable scum.
4. The French will always be right.
5. See Fact #1.

A lot of ink spilled for a cut and paste "historian" and historical romance novelist from a community college. So he's the big fish in the TNP cesspool. Big deal! Go to Amazon and write critical reviews of his works. Always the best revenge!

Not very useful revenge, though.
His American Revolution uniform book has around 50 reviews, for an average of 4.5/5 stars.
Two negative reviews if 1 Star, both stating that Kiley basically copied Mollo and McGregor with enough computer enhancements to muddy the art and make them immune to copyright infringement suits.
The truthful reviews are swamped by those who either don’t know any better, or by his aunt.

Some negative reviews are bitching that it didn’t have any information on a specific regiment, say the 2nd Pennsylvania. I don’t think anyone knows today what it wore, and that’s not what his book is. It’s very easy to be deceived into thinking that it’s “comprehensive”, and it ain’t that at all.

Katcher would know, but he ain’t got no pretty pictures.

His uniform book is full of errors and he's even added new errors to the copies of the Mollo prints!

It's that time again when we call out to our Basic Members to see if they are ready to support us by becoming Supporting Members. Every membership you purchase is another day that The Miniatures Page stays online to fight against Facebook and the other social media giants that want to swallow us little guys!



But of course if anyone asks, TNP finances are doing splendidly. So splendidly he don't need no stinking Limey advertisers (recent spat with Lardies); plus one of Bill's harem was made redundant.... :sicklybluesmile:

He seems to have a bit of a downer on FB anyway.

You were asked – TMP link

We've been experimenting with the Facebook Like/Share buttons for a while now. Should we keep them, or get rid of them? Are you using them?

28% said "get rid of them"
27% said "keep them"

In the comments, some were confused about this type of button versus other types of Like buttons (i.e., to 'Like' an individual post).

There's also the issue that Facebook might be able to trace people through having these buttons on our pages, plus the fact that people with Facebook blockers won't see the buttons anyway.

Therefore, the buttons have been removed from our pages.

Why do you need someone to extract the text another one to edit the text?
Or is that Bill inventing make-work jobs for the lovable but lazy dusky foreign beauties?

Hey! Extracting the text for one ad per day is hard work! You also expect her to edit it too?
You Imperialist slave driver!
