    I don't need specs for reading (yet). However I do seem to suffer from something that could be described as "Occasional Selective Illiteracy". :troll:

    I find it really strange that of 700+ views of this poll only a handful of members have actually voted-I would have thought that this would have been an opportunity to give producers a steer on what is most liked...........is it apathy?.....don't care?.......most viewers are not members and unable to vote?.........is it more about pose & sculpting?........insufficient categories?

    Intrigued......any opinions?.....Claude

    .

    Yep......
    In my abeit totally unbiased opinion obviously....... Whether the others do or don't vote the category of:

    'majestic, elegant, timeless, stylish Napoleonic'

    is going to deservedly win hands down so there's little point in them doing so, unless they vote for American first nations figures instead !

    Ha ha ha haaaaar :D

    I used to have favorite periods, but as the late Joe Shaw said, "If it's a good sculpt, and a great casting, the paint will just flow", and even though the overall standards of Sculpting have much improved, I still use that advice. After all, I need as much help as I can get!!! Ray

    Oh Paul,
    It was hard to choose, but if it came to the crunch there are too many splendid uniforms of the Napoleonic period to say no to, sorry Richie :(
