I feel like you are looking at that in a particularly linear four dimensional manner. We're gamers, surely we can do better?
Hi! I'm Harry, and I am a hobby addict. I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Pacific Theater (oddly in both 28mm infantry and 3mm aircraft.)

Larger year is newest. If year is the same, larger month is newest. If both year and month are the same, largest day is the newest. If ...
Always compare them in that order, even if they are displayed in a different order.
(The zero before the hour, and the removal of am/pm designation is because metric system uses 24h clock, so we remove one more source of confusion)
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
