Has a Flash Gordon, Blakes 7 nostalgia to them.

Some of that stuff I've never even heard of. Glad I opted to check each link out!

Unfortunately the list misses Oddzial Osmy's New Vistula Legion, released in September 2011.

Why didn't you nominate them?

Because, Bill, it's easy enough to miss the two or so day window in which a message board topic stays alive on the main page. The nominations, checking back, were probably live there from 8 to 10 February 2012 because nothing else was added past then.

I know back then I'd have been clearing orders to get ready for the Spring Cup in Milan (my life outside wargaming), and I probably did what I usually do when I'm busy, which is skim the news headlines of wargames sites and not look at message boards.

I am, also, just a stockist of the range. John, at Picoarmor, also stocks them and didn't nominate them, and nor did Marcin of Oddzial Osmy, who actually makes them.

I also feel that as someone deeply involved in the range that perhaps nominations should come from wargamers, not people with a vested interest. Not that having a "best range of 2011" announced in 2013 seems remotely topical or something I would care to trumpet because the date makes it sound so stale. In 2013 I really only care about the best ranges of 2012 and if the 2012 winners are announced in 2014, rather than early in 2013, I won't even care particularly then.

As I said, it's a shame that the NVL weren't there, and as a 2011 range aren't valid for 2012, but the staleness of the awards makes that regret a minor concern.

That's why I own 4 squads!

I'm half way through my first squad of Quar right now. I don't have any games in mind (though I got the Songs Of Our Ancestors book), I just saw them and decided I needed to paint some.

CPBelt15 Jan 2013 8:53 a.m. PST

I'm in the same boat. No real idea of a game, but I've always liked them along with Zombiesmith's other minis. I just like their look in 28mm. With the sale on, my son wants me to pick up some 15mm Aphids as well.

I should pay attention. Thanks, all! To celebrate 15% off everything!
(Seriously, having a sale, come get some award winning Quar for 15% off!)
