Designers Notes: My first set of "Wargaming Recruitment Posters" brought many requests for more. With due thanks to all those who contacted us about the posters, here is the Second set of 15 new posters. These posters try to convey that:
- Good Game Masters are widely sought,
- There are very few female wargamers,
- Children deserve a wonderful Hobby,
- Wargaming covers all eras and periods,
- Wargamers hate bad die rolls,
- The arguments over "One true Style of Wargaming" between "Historical" versus "Fantasy" wargaming are never ending ;)
A couple of the Posters deserve special mention: these were adapted from the Emacs vs Vi battle Posters. (Thanks to Think Geek for printing them on T Shirts)
Disclaimer: These posters were made with the intention of having some harmless fun based on my favourite hobby - Wargaming. It is not intended to hurt the feelings of Veterans, People of any particular Nation, Race or Religion. Still, if you feel that any of the material displayed here is offensive please let me know.
