A Bit of a Break

I will most likely leave my “Top Wargaming Blogs” suedo-poll open for another week, then I’ll do a post with the results.  After that, I’ll take some time off.  There are a few reasons for it.  I have tried numerous times to get some feedback to see what people would like to see more of […]

IE6 Help

For those of you still browsing with IE6, it’s time to upgrade, really.  If you have come here with IE6 you will see my little message everytime you arrive. I don’t recommend this for sites trying to sell something, but I feel like I’m doing my best to help rid the net of this blight.  […]

Aaaargghh!

I painted my 2,500th 6mm musket yesterday and finally snapped. In a fit of rage, I threw the entire unit against the basement wall. I said to myself, “Self, THAT felt REALLY good.” I then sought out the storage bins where I keep the finished figures, dumped them on the floor and proceeded to jump […]

Creating Flags

Roll Your Own One of the things that really sets off a unit on the table is a flag.  They also help to distinguish units, if they are you own units I suppose as other peoples’ flags might not be helpful in identifying units.  I usually tend to buy some flags at the beginning of […]

Wow! Long Time, No Post

I just checked in after quite some absence.  I see it has been since the end of September for the last post.  Holy Shit!  I need to get going.  To be honest, I became a little disappointed in the project as there were only two comments on the blog and there were very few views.  […]

OK, I’ll do it.

Well, I have given up on designing my own blog to show of the project.   I recently started a web design company for games companies and to be honest, when I have finished working on this stuff, I can’t bare the thought of starting work on my own site for fun.  So as my options […]
