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.

Moor Warlord see's the world and then returns home!

Well a little while back I painted up this super cool Warlord base for my very good friend's Moor Army. Well skip forward in time and after having a great time at a miniature convention with said friend I mentioned how cool it would be to finally get myself invested with a Muslim type army from Crescent & Cross. The next thing I know my friend says he got this great deal on some unpainted figures from Perry's and wanted to know what Army I would like. I was like, oh probably Moors, and he said okay I'll paint them up for you. So I am like okay what would you like in return (me thinking I have to give away my first born.... hey I can do that!!!) and he's like no I'll just paint it up and send it to you (crap I thought, I almost got rid of my first born>:<)!.

You can image what passed through my head at that moment. Hello? Who is this really on the other end of this phone call I ask???

Well like two weeks later I've got this Army in the mail which I must say is super sweet and something I will cherish always! But you may ask, what does this have to do with the title of this thread. Well everything!

You see after a long journey down to the deep south of the US of A, it seems the Moorish Army down there already had their own Warlord, so after a few months spent on a vacation away from battle instead, said Warlord has made it all the way back to me!

Unfortunately it got a little crunched on the way back to me. I had to replace the flag, and do a few touch ups with taking care of some chips. I also finished the flocking on the base which I had left plain so my friend could match it to his army.

Well without further yammering on my part here is the Moor Warlord on his finished base (finally!!!)
