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.

Change of pace, can't decide...

Having a small crisis. I need to paint something with uniforms to take a break from painting, what seems to be, every figure needs to be different with Saga War bands.The only problem is my ADD has taken over and I've gone into analysis paralysis.

So it's either going to be War of the Roses, with all those cool looking liveries, or

American War of Independence except the colonials might be a pain in the wa - tose, or

Musket and Pike and paint up some of those cool Spanish.

Plus I've got a bunch of other stuff sitting on the shelf and, and, and.... ahhhhh!!!!

  2. I've always loved the Pike and Shot. Some of the 30 years war stuff out there is simply gorgeous.

    1. Agreed, I have collected all of GMT's Musket & Pike series games and been a long time fan of the period. But....... somehow the AWI Brits started getting cut off the sprues for assembly.

  3. I've also taken a bit of a break from SAGA (painting not gaming that is). I've decided to try and be organised and focussed (let's see how long that lasts!) but with several different systems. Hopefully having a range of projects to work towards (in bite sized nibbles) will help to keep things fresh.

    1. I know just what you mean about trying to be focused and organized. I wish us both luck!
