My name is Graham and welcome to my blog.
I started wargaming when at school some 30+ years ago. Over this period I, probably like many of you have dropped in and out of the hobby. I am always trawling the web looking for information and views on different aspects of the hobby. I hope you find something here you may like.
Many years ago I start collecting figures in what ever period my local club at the time were into. Since then I have changed scales, sides and rules too many times. When I decided recently to get back into wargaming I made a number of decisions that would shape my return to the hobby for me.
1. Having spent too many hours discussing rules with opponents rather than playing, I wanted rules that could be picked up and played fairly quickly, gave an enjoyable game and could be played in an evening or two.
2. I had to enjoy the look of the game. I am afraid to think how much time I have wasted rebasing units.
3. I have to own both sides. In the past I have invested in an army only to see the members of the club change scales and or periods leaving me alone. No more!
4. I have discovered the enjoyment from painting as much as the wargame so I get figures I like. This sometime means a choice about the style of game as the cost may mean I skirmish rather than fight with large armies.
