It's Springtime for Armintrout and TNP.


More a case of Hello Dolly. Not quite what La Streisand had in mind but Bill’s version cuts costs by reducing the number of cast members. :wink:

Not unless they are transatlantic cousins. Vaguely surprised that Stonewall doesn’t do a signature range of rioting ‘60s drag queens. They should consider it, it would probably give them free advertising rights on TNP.

I wonder how many of us have recast figures in our collections?
Was that offer on eBay or TMP Marketplace too good to be true?
Wargames Foundry figures have a weird connection to recasting. It seems that the “madman” who owned the company was prone to giving away figures in bulk quantities to favored people. Or was he? The story is murky.
I once bought a lot that I was sure was pirated. I sent an email to the company with particulars. I got a reply that told me to mind my own business.
Even now you can find sales of Foundry figures on the TMP Marketplace that look fishy. But he’s been doing it so long, it seems legit. He might even have permission from the “madman”. Who knows?
BTW, I was told by a Brit who knew him personally that he was “mad”, so it’s not my term. :D

Seems Bill really wants to keep half of TMP in the dark about his new posting rules, so he can improve their moral by deleting their posts with no explanation! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

All I ever asked was that he would just inform members about this new policy, rather than just delete new postings that do not conform to the changes that most are totally unaware of.
But I have this morning agreed with him to stop complaining and am now doing so. This is a service I very much value. It is his creation. It is his to manage, as he sees fit.
I have never been hostile to him about a "New Policy" that I did say might actually be an advantage to us (even if unrealistic in practice). I just begged him to communicate. He, politely, asked me to stop complaining in a personal message this morning.
I agreed. I suspect this will all sort itself out in the end and we will continue to share valuable info on our hobby interests.

Three by The Editor.
How many of Tango01’s threads will have a response? If Bill is relying on page hits...


You know, it occurred to me that it doesn't matter if Bill relies on page hits as a method to sell his site to advertisers.

Where do the hits come from? Why, Bill's software. It would be a simple matter for him to just make up, or inflate the numbers. He's a known liar for his own benefit; why should we regard his self reported numbers as accurate?
