You know, I'm going to get beaten up for this, and maybe rightly so, but we may be carrying individuality to extremes.

I would not for the world restrict anyone, but it does seem to me we'd benefit from a scale every five millimeters or so, instead of "Tom's 15mm castings are smaller than Dick's but bigger than Harry's." It also wouldn't hurt to see more roads, bridges and rivers which played nicely with each other, common basing systems--Ancients is close--and a higher ratio of scenarios to rules. (Well, at least scenarios which were generic as well as specific. Or do other people get more enjoyment out of looking through old magazines and finding references to "five bases of Category 2(d) infantry?")

It reminds me a little of German WWII production: the urge to make minor tweaks and serve very particular purposes gets in the way of the overall program.

Where's Albert Speer when we need him?
