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.

WIP: Saga Moor Warlord vignette
Some real life issues have placed my hobby in the back seat for a bit, but not completely. I've been keeping up on my favorite blogs and doing some light painting so as not to go completely mad. Most of all I've been trying to get some painting done for friends I have promised for them, so here is one of them in a Moor Warlord vignette for the popular Saga game system. I have not completed the base on purpose so that my friend can match it to his Army with his material. I used liquitex matte gel to build up the base. On hindsight next time I will use a different material as this took forever to dry, probably because I applied it pretty thick. I saw a picture somewhere in an Osprey book of a leader on a small rise with his banner man on a horse slightly below him. That's what I was trying to accomplish with this one. I have yet to place a proper sword in the hand of the Warlord, and make the banner for the other. But it's pretty much done.
I've worked on a few other projects, but will post separately for period reasons.
