I have been wargaming since the early 1970's and am still as enthusiastic now as I was then. (Makes me early to mid-50's in case you are interested.)
Wargame in most common scales and in most common periods. Large number (35 at last count) of reasonably sized 6mm armies: 10mm Mongols and Chinese: some 15mm armies and increasing each year. (Currently painting 15mm Sassanids and Maurikian Byzantines while repainting Mongols). In 25mm I have Carthaginian, Mongols, Russian/Polish and Renaissance Polish.
The observant reader may have noticed a pattern here; I have been fascinated by the Mongols and their campaigns for as long as I can remember which probably accounts for armies in 4 different scales.
Am not a member of any club at present because of a) not being a driver and b) work hours. Task of the year is to sort out the loft so that I can get a 6 x 5 table set up for solo games. But what with other commitments ie painting figures, reading, painting figures, making terrain, watching Premiership football -West Ham United, painting figures, gardening and work, it will probably take all year!
Bit of a wargame magpie as I still have a copy of WRG 3rd Edition Ancients and Paragon WW I Aerial amongst others. (In fact I have whole Business Storage Box overflowing with old sets of wargame rules.)
Count myself as a reasonable to half-decent painter -examples of my work are on the Irregular Miniatures website -25mm Mongols and 15mm Sassanids- as well as a number of examples on the blogs listed below..
Currently running two blogs;
