        Are there really any rules out there that are that good? I haven't
found them. A lot of people around here are switching to Warzone over 40K,
they say the rules are heaps better and just having watched I can't really
comment, but the miniatures are just so ordinary I'd have to be _really_
impressed with the rules to play more than a few social games.

        I can see the point being made about using wooden blocks or
counters, they're all just markers. I really do believe though that the
miniatures are the attraction with miniatures based wargames, for me at
least. All rules have holes, some rules have more holes or bigger holes
than others, the better the miniature to plug them with the better.
