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.
Welcome Jon, how's the wargaming up in Darwin these days ?

Thanks chaps, the calf is duly roasting....the skins are unstoppered.

@Tarty - there is a club up here with a decent membership I believe, but they are only FoW and GW, neither of which are my cup of tea. I've been here 9 years and my wargaming is done with a small group who meet at each others houses, use home grown rules predominantly and play anything that the host puts on ranging from Ancients to Vietnam on Land, Sea or Air. Other than that, it is an impoverished backwater.....

@PaintPig - I hope to see it there in its entirety one day as well, but that would mean the lead pile is gone and thats not good for a wargamer's health I hear....:) Haven't had a lot of time for the past couple of years but hoping to do some serious damage over the next 18 mths.

@Admin Fella - thankyou good sir.

Hi all!
I've been gaming since mid seventies. Was then introduced to WRG 6th by Geoff who used to generously allow us to take over his kitchen every Sunday. Not to mention borrow his armies while ours were getting built. :D Played alot of Colonial during the 90's but am mainly Napoleonic with new collections in ECW and modern Naval.

G'day everyone,
I've been posting over on The Guild, & Mathew of Wartime PMed me & suggested I might like to sign up with you blokes.
I live down in Tasmania (North West of the state) and have been into wargaming & associated interests since the 1970's in one way or another.
Used to play a lot of Napoleonics but am now heavily into WW2(15mm & now 20mm), I have however recently got hold of "Dux Bellorum", so may be having a 15mm Dark Ages diversion.
Heaps of my stuff on my blog:

Cheers,
John.

Caught some nice Salmon and Tailor in the river mouths of Devo and Ulverstone, I worked for a company in Penguin for some years even though I live in Qland. Nice part of the world, good fish and chips at Sulpher Creek when I was last there :D

Hi all
My name is Lawrence. I live in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, about 20mins from the CBD. I enjoy travelling a lot. Been involved in miniatures/model wargaming since I was a teenager. Now I'm heading towards the back end of my middle years, and looking to participate in the group environment. Been a solo enthusiast since I first began in the late sixties. Only started being part in gaming in a club and competitive form since I joined Queensland Gamers Guild in 2011 who don't play a lot of historical wargaming. But I'm trying to remedy that by offering alternatives - of which the BIG Muster offered an opportunity to showcase just one of the systems I'm introducing.
The people I met at BIG recently only reinforced my love for historical. I just need to get involved. :D

hope to talk and see you more on this great site

Howdy !

My name is James Tiffin, I have just taken over as the owner/operator of Flashpoint Miniatures as of this Monday (26 Nov 12).

I am looking to expand the biggest range of 15mm Vietnam figures a little further, solve a few production and supply problems, and maybe add a few new and useful terrain pieces.
I'd like to explore the 'modern' period in 15mm also. ..might finally get around to playing 'AK47' ,
I have only heard good about it.
I am a long-time wargamer, and am newly learning to wear the new hat of figure Manufacturer and Merchant . I only 'met' the Flashpoint Range earlier this year and was impressed with their quality and range. When I heard that Drew was looking to sell the range(s) to focus on his beloved SYW period and Koenig Kreig rules , i jumped at the chance ! (with a lot of careful consideration.... there's a real lot to learn!)

I also play 15mm DBA, 20mm WW2 (including lots of 'Airfix'), and beloved 6mm 'Epic' Sci-fi.

.....Thanks for hosting such an awesome site , sorry it's taken so long for me to say G'day .

Cheers !

jimmi

Nice to hear you have taken on the range mate and Drew can focus more on other aspects of the hobby.

I am sure you will keep us all updated. :)

Welcome to the forum Jimmi - it is a pity those Flashpoint figures are 15mm as I play 'Nam in 28MM :?
