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.

"Torok" the Terrible!

Long known as a cunning warrior and one to switch sides at the drop of a pin if the price is right. Torok, who has come to be known as the Terrible, has long been one of the Steppe terrors.

Many legends have been told of this great warrior but only one needs to be retold here for you to understand this great Warlord:

After a great victory and sitting by a campfire feasting with the Steppe Overlord, the Steppe Overlord asked this question, "Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?".
Another nomad answered, "The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.". The Overlord barked, "Wrong! Torok! What is best in life?". Torok without missing a beat answered, "Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.".
The Overlord with satisfaction in his eyes said, "That is good! That is good!".

This is all you need ever know when you face Torok the Terrible, fear him!
