I found this little gem over at Tiny Legions whilst I was looking for something else entirely. The story appears to be that a greek journalist attended a warhammer 40k tournament, interviewed some players, and came away with ...an opinion. The article was in greek, but fortunately, Antipope (the chap in the picture) has translated the thing into english (and passed comment in the article in general) on his blog, allowing as all to chuckle at some of the assertions coming out.
The Nazi, xenophibic, racist trope didn't really capture my attention that much, but this line did:
Painting the "armies" is a form of art on it's own accord, to which modelers dedicated hours or even days.
...hours or even days?
Try years, lady. Years.
Anyway, another decoy post to cover my OCD with my latest painting project. Next post will genuinely, honestly, really, really be a picture of something I've painted.
