In this particular case, that's a very accurate philosophy.  Of course, 
you have to find them first.  

I've been rereading the Illuminatus trilogy for the fourth time, and 
it's left me with all kind of fun ideas.  I'm actually quite pleased 
with the new background that I've come up with.  It allows me to:

     A)Use all of my existing minis (2 fleets, 7 DSII armies, and 15 
different 25/28mm forces) while I accumulate and paint a dedicated 
Illuminati force.

     B)Justify any and all conflicts with any and everyone, using any 
combination of my miniatures.

     and C)Have a lot of fun along the way.  I've already decided that I

need to paint an appropriate Silent Death ship gold and call it the Leif

Erikson.  And if I can print out some nice little Dobbshead 
decals...well, the universe will never be the same again.
