The rules are the last thing I acquire. First, I have to have an abiding interest in the period. Then if I find figures I like I might buy some and start painting while I wonder about how to base them. Once I’ve got a fair number painted and based then I start looking for rules that might scratch my itch. I’ll try several sets and then write my own. Frankly, I never get around to playing.
