This blog is intended to follow the progress of a new member of the historical miniatures wargaming hobby. I’m starting from the beginning, from buying rules, painting models, making terrain, and (hopefully soon) playing the first game. Along the way, expect ruminations on the hobby and maybe even some light philosophizing. My goals are to collect and distribute hints and tips about wargaming as well as drum up some interest and opponents in the hobby in my fair state.
I’m a (very) non-traditional architecture student, after a first career as a land surveyor. Expect comparisons of the wildly differing worlds of wargame modeling and architectural modeling.
Personal details? Thanks for asking. I’m white, male, in my early 40s and a life-long nerd. My nerd background has largely been centered in a plethora of RPGs, with brief, though regular, forays into board games of various sorts.
Other interests include rocking out on the electric guitar, bluegrassing out on the mandolin, and other, more usual, things like reading, movies, and the eating of food.
