Diverse Directions incidentally starts with of course Centaur and Champion, but they are just the tip of an immense iceberg. BN and RN are as old as the hills, but again in early spring 2015 someone will reinvent the suckers. Gilman cites Carrera's first of all as he should. Diverse Directions and 06 The Heavy Brigade and 07 When Beasts Collide will be for later.
