Funny how some of the fads mentioned (besides mine) show people having fads for non-historical gaming.

POLL DESCRIPTION

In a recent magazine article based on her GAMA seminar, Heather Barnhorst writes:

Historical miniature gamers are extremely faddish in nature. A group will pick up a rules set and suddenly 15mm ACW figures will be the hot period and scale. Someone will see Pirates of the Caribbean and everyone will want pirate figures. The year Gladiator was released saw a huge surge in interest in gladiator figures and rules sets.

She warns that for the retailer, this can lead to a situation "...where you are overstocked on some periods and scales that are no longer in fashion."

In your opinion, is historical miniatures "faddish"?
