Hi all,

Figured I would drop an introduction post in here.

I have a story that will be very familiar - started in 1990 with GW and stuck with that off and on for the next 20 years though over the last decade I have gradually moved more and more to the historical side, though I do dabble with the occasioanl GW product.

As I have gotten older, I have certainly gotten more into the hobby. I currently manage around 10 - 15 hours painting a week (a bit less when the kids are off school) and I am forutnate to have a whole room for painting, which I have almost got set up the way I want it finally. I have way too many projects on going as well as some part time commision work. Pleased to report that this year I am on the way to a mini a day painting! I try to post all my stuff on Insta and Twitter as well.

Why am I here? Well, over the last few years I am finding myself moving more and more towards smaller scales due to space, time and money. I also like the spectale of smaller scale gaming - even when I was younger my favourite GW game was Epic. My main WW2 wargaming is battlegroup in 20mm, and I have 15mm Ancients on the go. I am about to do Sharp Practice in 10mm for the ACW (likely to be my first big Pendraken order) and will be pledging in the new Pennisular not-kickstarter as well.

I won't bore you any more - thanks for having me and I will try and post on the forum fairy regulary on top of using social media.

Cheers

David

Hello Mr Flame.

10mm in an excellent scale; Pendraken are a superb manufacturer; the ACW is an brilliant range.

Please post photos, and enjoy the camaraderie of this forum. They're a helpful and knowledgeable lot.

Welcome Dave, let me give you my habitual assessment of the forum. It is warm, welcoming, well read, well informed, willing to help, weird and wacky by turns. Enjoy!
