Our Philosophy

"How much better is this amiable miniature than the Real Thing!"

 

“it is remarkable how elastic the measurements of quite honest and honourable men can become.”

 

“I have never yet met in little battle any gentleman, any captain, major, colonel, general, or eminent commander, who did not get into difficulties and confusions among even the elementary rules of the battle. You have only to play at Little Wars three or four times to realize just what a blundering thing Great War must be.”
 

“Great War is at present, I am convinced, not only the most expensive game in the universe, but it is a game out of all proportion. Not only are the masses of men and material and suffering and inconvenience too monstrously big for reason, but – the available heads we have for it, are too small.”

 

 - H.G. Wells, Author and founding Father of the wargaming hobby
