Hi all, my names Allan, I am 21 and currently living at Flinders University in Adelaide. I started gaming 7 years ago with GW games and have since wisely moved to historicals :P I'm currently collecting 20mm modern forces for Ambush Alley / Force on Force, and am also planning 20mm ACW and WW2 projects, although I am also considering Flames of War. Its good to find an Aussie board that isn't GW focussed! Look forward to seeing all of your work.

Cheers, Panzer.

Hi Rummers

My name is Dave. I have been a wargaming for some 30 odd years, although very infrequently over the last 5 years. I still enjoy painting units of figures, however that is being replace by painting small numbers of figures for vignettes and the odd very poor attempt at display painting. My main interests lie in historical minis and games, I have no objection to sci-fi and fantasy I enjoy reading history so that fits in neatly, in particular18thC, ACW, bit of Nap, WWII and recently been poking about Imperial Rome and enemies.

I recognise some of your handles from the blogosphere so you may recognise the paintpig tag from my blog? Well with any luck I be able to make a useful contribution to the forum, I imagine I Will be buzzing about the painting forums for the most part so see you there

PP
regards

Welcome to the forum mate. I must admit i am interested in ECW as well and find myself a bit of a Kings Man. Got plenty of figures here to start in 28mm, but like all my others projects just don't seem to be able to finish anything. :)

That's nice to see more Royalists to thwart the Round Heads , at the moment I'm still working on my first regiment of Royalist foot the Lifeguard. I've downloaded the Victory Without Quarter rules they seem less fussy than most rule sets that've played before , my painting style is like you see on Wargames Foundry website as I like the 3D effect it gives. So hopefully I'll pull my finger out and get cracking on these little folk so I can get gaming , and if I remember to I'll get some piccies posted as well of what I've painted up so far.

Richard Tartt here, never got around to doing this when first joining but doing so now. First started with a box of 1/32 Airfix Japanese must have been 1971, wish I still had them. Everything got blown away in cyclone Tracey with the rest of them. Started on the hard stuff after that 1/72 WW2 kits &- Tractics-Anything you could get your bloody hands on living in the NT, scratch building lot's of it mostly soviet. Esci hard plastic's....cutting edge. Moved to Sydney 79 and metal....Micky Green...Minifigs...Crows Nest shop...Kendo.......Radio Birdman.... and all the other hoolagans. Joined the Eastern Association 80's never looked back. Intrests- all of it! but ancients hold a special place. Can't function properly without having some major project on the blocks.

Hi all guys,
I dunno if it is required, still I do not like to skip presentation so.....here I am .
My name is Rosario and I am 35 yo italian wargamer .
I have been practicing Historical wargames for over 12 years, altought I have to stop for a while due to lack of opponents and real life issues
Now I have got some spare time to start again with my passion and I decided to focus on a ruleset allowing me to enjoy battles even more. with my old group we usually used Armati and Shako plus some homemade ruleset very specific Napoleonic scenarios or ACW battles...... but they didn't prove satisfactory.
That's why after a careful reserach I opted for GDB and Guns at Gettysburg, still going happy for some F&F scenarios aswell.


For the moment I greet youy all

Greetings all and thankyou for allowing me into the august rooms of the Tavern. I bring a fatted calf and plenty of wine by way of offering.

Jon is the name, I'm less than 50, live in Darwin, NT and have been transfixed by this hobby since the early 1970s. Current interests/lead piles are 6mm/20mm/54mm WW2, 15mm Ancients, 6mm ECW, 28mm Medievals, 15mm WW1, 28mm Darkest Africa, 10mm/40mm AWI plus sundry other "great ideas" <ahem>. I post over on TMP under the same name, but this forum was recommended to me as a far less argumentative joint to be.....

cheers
Jon.
