Oh great. Now my official, GZG, powered-armor troops that I've spent
hundreds of hours meticulously cleaning and painting and which I spent
hundreds of my hard earned dollars on, to support Jon and his wonderful
products, get to fight against...RUBBER SPIDERS?!?!?!?

"If I had study war, I think I should concentrate almost
on the 'actualities of war,' the effects of tiredness, hunger, fear,
of sleep, weather....The principles of strategy and tactics...are
simple: it is the actualities that make war so complicated and so
difficult, and are usually neglected by historians."

The German Soldier in World War Two" by Stephen G. Fritz.)
