Has anyone seen the Beastsofwar channel on YouTube? They review all kinds of wargame products and post video battle reports etc. They are a very popular and entertaining channel and I was thinking could they not be asked to review Vortex? It would really help in getting the game known to a much wider audience.
That is sad because there are lots of fine rule sets that don't have accompanying miniature lines and it means only the big players ever get much in the way of publicity. I think in some ways wargaming has become too slick with big shiny rulebooks, official minis and background settings etc. Not that it is bad in itself but it seems to lock people into particular companies and with gamers getting into arguments about whose game is best, whose has the best minis and background and what have you. So many appear to be in creative straight jackets where their gaming is concerned. Not such a problem for historical players although it's starting to move in that way now. Back in the day most rule sets were small black and white booklet type things written by amateurs that cost little to buy but were often real gaming gems requiring you to seek out the appropriate figures from elsewhere.
