I said I was going to add this as an optional rule didn't I? I'd better
get on to that, just as soon as I have finished my report for the SoA
AGM on Saturday and sent out the latest East Riding Miniatures orders
(Germany, Italy, UK....)

Certainly in the UK there is a level of objection to new editions of
rules, and people only grudgingly buy the new editions because they
feel they have to (not me, as I LIKE reading rule books, even for games
I will never play).
I even know someone who, when 7th Edition Ancients came out, took his
copies of the previous 6 editions to a show, presented them to Phil and
asked for a refund as they were now useless! An extreme example, but a
good example of the sort of crap he has had to put up with over the
years, and a possible explanation for some of his feelings.
