Blog discription

What will you find here? Ramblings from an aging gamer-miniature painter. When I first started out in this hobby computers were in their infancy and finding other gamers could only be done by going to conventions or as in my case bumping into somebody who happened to see me reading "Panzer Leader" on the school bus. Look how far we have come! The internet has allowed our small community to be able to connect on a level I never dreamed of when I was but a small lad. What I do hope you will find here is something interesting from one wargamer/miniature painter to another. I paint miniatures somewhat decently, so I will be posting some pictures of my work, and perhaps a review or two of games and/or miniatures. Most of all this is just about having fun and anything I post here is meant to be for that reason.

I love Summer time!!!

I wouldn't normally say that, but it's true for this year at least. We got hammered by one of the worst winters in Michigan in the last 30 years. I can't remember snow and cold like that since I was a child living up north in Michigan. Any ways that explains my statement. I am sooo freaking happy that it's bloody finally warm!

So I've been busy in the garden and doing honey do things, but I have had a chance to put some more paint on 12 Hoplites and as I mentioned before I decided to mount the bodies (Victrix 28mm Models) and leave the other bits on the sprue. This is what I used to do when I built models way back when, and it's helping facilitate detail work in what would have been hard to reach spots. Able to get to that trim work on the leather armor much better without all the bits in the way. I will have to do a little filing and touch up work on the bits I cut off the sprue after I am done painting them, but that will be a breeze. So far I am very pleased with the results I am getting. I should be able to put up some pics in another week or so. Why that long you may ask? Well it's because it's SUMMER TIME! Yes indeed, getting outside and cycling, drinking beer, cycling some more, gardening, honey do lists, etc. etc. So you get the point.  Because it's not Winter I am not trapped in my man cave;)

Until next time, cheers
