I think the supply end of the Ancients, Dark Ages, and Medieval figure selections grew because of Mr. Barker and WRG. He helped grow the hobby. Look how many other rule systems still stick to WRG basing standards. While many of the authors of competing systems may deny this they all do share some of Phil's mechanisms.
