I have 118 different Osprey titles-mostly Men-at-arms, with some Elites, Warriors, Campaigns, etc., etc., thrown in. I used to think that was a lot, but considering the number of Osprey collectors around, and the number of new releases each quarter, that's nothin'.
My first men-at arms title, actually a Hippocrene book, was The Kings German Legion, by Otto von Pivka, cost $3.95. I bought it in 1974, still have it, and believe it's still one of the best.
I have roughly 34 Ospreys on my shelves, with 'roughly' meaning that there are a few that will be leaving my collection and that there are a few hiding in boxes or under 'something'...
B-29 Hunters of the JAAF
Looking at two more of the Aviation Elite units series,Sturmgruppen and Defense of the Reich Aces.
I think I may in be in the minority...112 Ospreys....fairly evenly distributed across topics, but weighted towards the Second World War and the American Civil War.
I'm curious if there are any comments about one of the newer Osprey Men-at-Arms on the Japanese Naval Landing Forces in WW2, where color photos of a cherubic lad and a mannequin in uniforms replace most of the center artwork? I personally prefer the artwork, and then have color uniform photos throughout the text. Unfortunately, if they added more color to the Men-at-Arms series, they'd undoubtedly raise the price.
Like some above, mind, I've consulted a number, I just don't actually own them.
