Historical miniature showdown
Posted by Martin on March 9, 2009
I picked up on this in a couple of places over the weekend, but today saw the official announcement on the Osprey Publishing blog.
The rules seem a little idiosyncratic, the timeframe in which the miniatures have to have been released is a little ambiguous and there’s no stated closing date for entries. But I suppose an e-mail to Osprey at firstname.lastname@example.org can clarify all those things. I’m also slightly disturbed by the graphic at the top of the posting that mentions several figure manufacturers by name but none of them are acknowledged leaders in the Napoleonic period. I think that’s slightly unfair.
Regardless of my reservations, this could prove to be interesting, very interesting…
