.... is listed here. If you are working on your first game and there is no one around to teach you, it might take a bit longer than 2 hours. If you play 500-1000 point games, 2 hours is a fair estimate. If you want to play larger games, obviously it will take longer. Our gaming group regularly plays on a week night from 7-9pm. I don't want any new comers turned off by the geek list without a word from someone who actually plays the game.

The entry refers to the amount of time spent painting the miniatures, building terrain and putting together a decent table to play on.

..... I was referring to the part about ... "Forget the 6 hours it takes to set up, play and tear down again." At most it would take 2.5 hours to play a 1000 point game (including setup). I can't argue about the time spent painting, building and boardscaping.

I think it is silly to mention any miniatures games in a post like that for reasons of painting & terrain making. I think it is a given as soon as you mention the word 'miniatures'. I guess he could have started the post with every miniatures game in the database for those reasons.

... anyways, I just didn't want any new people to be turned away because of the quote listed above.

He is just crying about miniature games in general.
