Thanks for the warm welcome, guys- much appreciated.

What will I contribute? Well, now that I'm starting to function again (loooooong story, don't ask), I'll just say that my site is a useful comparison tool for 1910-1945 28mm figures, and is slowly expanding in all eras. I also provide reviews of other things like rules and useful books. (btw- if y'all know any manufacturers who aren't represented there yet, feel free to arrange for unpainted samples to be sent over, or at least to let me know about them so I can include them in my list).

As a side-line I also do the odd master vehicle for our manufacturers, and will contribute WIP and "going to the caster's" pics as I work on new projects.

I'll also happily chip in with unwanted advice about figure ranges and rules... and maybe the odd bit of useless trivia and chatter.

Oh, and if anyone's in East Sus[Posh 'n' Becks'], feel free to contact me!

Welcome to Arthur Narmy
Isn't 'Narmy' the name the Americans give to the land-based sailors working in Iraq? Anyway - hope you like it here and get on with us the inmates!
Cheers

this is from mr farrow2u
History, hmmm... well I used to Wargame when I was younger but it all got stored away when I had to become sensible, grow older & had to earn a living. My son is now 11 but a few years ago he started to get an interest in Military stuff. We started to collect those Del Prado Napoleonics, downloaded some simple rules & he enjoyed it.

Next moved onto playing Warhammer Ancient Battles but found we got bogged down with loads of dice throwing, like most Games Workshop stuff. He still collects anything with their name on it. WAB, still a good game system though.

Discovered DBA & found that this suited us down to the ground. Table size is relatively small, game length is fine, speed/ease of play, easy to collect/paint the armies. Plus a simple combat system which even my 6 year old daughter can do (she regularly joins in). It has a good coverage with the rules & extensions covering a wide range of periods.

We get to game shows when we can (my shifts can be a pain), shame the Stockton one has come to an end. Still at the end of the day is all about having fun, which we all have & spend more time together.

Cheers

Ah huh, I see what you're doing now Mr P. Testing us by posting enigmatic caracatures :l:

And 'Hello' to 'Osbad' who has the rare and very special distinction of being our 44th member. Well done.

The number 44 being especially pro- er... propitious for a wargamer, being the year in which Claudius finishes his walk-over-southern-Britian-campaign in triumph (although that was just his line; the pesky Brits struggled on for a few years yet).

Oh, and Herod died. So hope to see you about :l:
