Well please excuse me because this is my first ever Blog post! Hope I'm doing this right because I'm hopeless with computers! In fact that's one of the things I feel cheated about a few years older and I'd have the excuse of being of an older generation...a few years younger and it would all be second nature...but no, I have the constant nagging thought that I just missed the boat! Oh well, bear with me and I'll do my best and try to learn as I go...feel free to shout advice at me anytime...or just shout at me if that makes you happy!
Now, what's this Blog all about??? Well a little bit of everything that interests me I guess. I'm a bit of a magpie I guess and I constantly find myself attracted to the next shiny bauble so I have quite diverse interests. I may find myself rambling and diverging but not too much I hope!
Primarily I intend this Blog to be about my love of painting miniatures. Notice I said painting and not gaming with miniatures? I class myself mainly as a hobbyist...I enjoy collecting and painting and converting. I love reading about backgrounds and trying to find accurate information and paint schemes etc. That's not to say I don't game..I do but very infrequently, and when I do I'm most definitely not a power gamer! I'm interested in the spectacle and the background and above all the fun of a game...winning or losing is irrelevant to me...although as my preferences usually lies with 'the baddies' I must admit it's always nice to crush the goodie goodies beneath my jackboots or cloven hoofs! (and when I lose its always in character too!
So expect to find lots of painted miniatures here from various systems, product reviews, a few battle reports, a bit of sportscasting and comments on current affairs and musings on life in general... I hope you enjoy!
