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.

Yamagata Masakage Ashigaru unit for Saga
Well at least I hope it is. Turnbull says he dressed his men in red all the way down to the Ashigaru. Also I hope I have the mon's correct for him fighting with Takeda Shingen around late 1560's early 1570's (using Samurai Archives and a pamphlet produced in the 90's). If not I hope they look the part at least. As I read it looks like there could be several different personal Mon's used by the Samurai who served him. So as I go on with the project and figure it out, I might add some other Mon's to different units dressed in red. I am also going to paint up a few odd Samurai to throw into the mix of Ashigaru. This is the group shot of my first painted up unit for Saga Samurai.
