Aside from those that have no interest in the period whatsoever, what keeps you from getting started? Price? Too complicated a period? Too many rules? Too complicated rules? Too tough tactics? Too hard to paint uniforms? Waiting on more 28mm plastic sets to come out? Just cant be bothered to research the period and the armies? A combination of the above? Other?

(Clarification: This poll refers to land warfare during the Napoleonic period.)
