I would like to offer an analogy if I may.  I feel that we have gone from playing chess with ivory pieces on an inlaid ebony board, to playing checkers with plastic pieces on a cardboard playing board.  steveb

You played a game yet? You painted or modelled any of the new figures?

yes, I painted some khorne figures on commission for someone else,  I also played one game and did not enjoy it.  I used to enjoy 40K but I quit it years ago because I no longer liked the figures. I am not saying they are bad or anything, they are just not esthetically pleasing  to me.  steveb

To be honest, your post above really does suggest that - and does so using the standard meme that AoS is, somehow, a game for kids or people without taste, or who don't know the difference between nice things and not.

Why say 'Fair Enough' and then go on and criticise.
He's entitled to his opinion and described how he felt about it.

I've never seen steveb guilty of being a sheep or lemming before, so why are you suugesting he is now.

In fact I wonder if your use of the "standard meme" phrase is not standard trolling against anyone who wants to comment negatively about PreK.

PreK?

It is very clear you, and I think the rest of the moderation team, share a dismissive view of both Age of Sigmar and its players. The former is bearable, the later isn't.

There you go again - making your opinion a sweeping statement.
One of the main AOS advocates happens to be someone I would call a good friend from the Eurobash, and so far he hasn't been PMing me for being 'dismissive'.
In fact since we set the AoS board up. I haven't had a PM from anyone.
In fact the only person who still wants to continue the argument is you - every time someone is vaguely critical of AoS.

You have a lot of admirable qualities DK - the ability to read something, smile, and move on is not one of them.

Edit:
Just seen your 'Toys out of the Pram' post in the AoS board - yes I was in there 'moderating'.

What do you want - do you seriously expect things to be the same around here?
This was a site dedicated to The Empire in the Warhammer Fantasy game which doesn't exist anymore.
You've got a Board dedicated to AoS.
People who don't like AoS are not going in there and starting or continuing arguments as far as I have seen.
However you feel it is ok to jump on any negative remarks elsewhere on the site, and throw a tantrum when you get called on it.

Still you obviously will not read this as you have said goodbye.

Can I just chime in that I'm really really really appreciative of that? :smile2:
