About this blog
A focus on the shenanigans involved in my hobby and gaming career. I hope to help inspire others to make shortcuts for themselves to get painting faster, storing models better, and playing games as smoothly as possible.
A little about myself: First and foremost, I am an enthusiast, no matter the subject. I've come to interpret this as always focusing on the things that make me excited and just plain ignore the things that go out of their way to make me not-so. For that reason, my goal with this or any community will be to build things up and not tear things down, the latter being a complete waste of time. Second and second-most, FUN is top priority in all cases. Simple as that (and yes, there's gamer psychological profiles that dictate in what way people have fun and these different folks butt heads sometimes, but you get the point). I see you "Spike" players, get outta my face.
I am a 30-somethin' who's been primarily painting Age of Sigmar models for the last four years, but I always looks forward to playing, designing or play-testing board games. My background is, frankly, non-existent? Still haven't figured that out yet. The culmination of my time in the miniatures hobby can be described as gaming on a budget and in a confined space. I've done almost all my work in my bedroom and haven't been big on spending gobs of money (yes I know, "choose a different hobby", I get it).
But restriction breeds creativity! It's my frugality and success enjoying this hobby that has brought about a few innovations that will serve as the back-bone for future entries. For this community, I wish to take problems or obstacles from you fine folks that has hindered your time in the hobby or game and do my best to provide solutions. Perhaps learning about your "restrictions" during all of your hobby career will inspire future entries.
