Assuming your figures were alive and had personalities,who would have the most vanity? Your command figures( his base is bigger than mine,and its got more rocks!)? Would your ACW riflemen laugh at the Landsknecht dandies in the next box over? Or would your figure of Captain Flash heart( "I give orgasms to furniture by sitting on it! Woof!") trump them all?

Elves, of course. (And great Blackadder reference, BTW.)

Baron Alois von Trapp-- African big game hunter, musician, and composer; hero of the Battle of Zaidi Ngombe. The pink silk shirts are a dead giveaway. ;-)

The Tunisian Transvestite Camel Corps (the Bay's Gays).

Lol. I guess whichever unit carries around the most mirrors, and/or stops in front of every reflective surface it encounters. :)

Well, I've got some painted Britains attached to units of Airfix 54mm plastics. I imagine the Britains sometimes discuss their superior lineage with the plebes.

And over in the 30mm boxes, there are real wargaming aristocracy--a smattering of Staddens and Surens, Dave Mort originals, Minifig 30's and six Westphalian Gardes du Corps practically individually assembled from pieces who used to ride with Baron Vietmeyer. With troops like that in the same room, 15's and 28's--or even 25's--fighting over precedence just look silly.
