Welcome, welcome!

In which: Dave introduces himself and talks about what he’s gong to talk about.

Hi all! My name’s Dave, and… I’m a gamer. A wargamer, to be precise, and a tabletop miniatures wargamer to be very precise indeed (although I do play my share of computer games, being the kind of nerdy fella I am). This blog is going to be a place for me to talk about that – playing games, collecting and painting models for them, that kind of thing. I have wide-ranging and, as I move into early middle age, increasingly beardy tastes in wargaming, so that might be interesting! It’ll also be about the vagaries of being into this hobby as an ex-pat living in Japan, which, as we’ll see, can make being involved in┬áthis hobby a challenge!

I sort of got bit by the gaming-blogging bug over the past month or so, when I started a modest little project to take part in a 30-day challenge, painting every day for 30 days and sharing what I did with the world. Not many people actually read it, but I found the process of a) forcing myself to do some hobby work every day, and b) talking about it a bit to be interesting. So here I am, with an honest-to-Murgatroyd blog, God help me.

I’ll probably start over the next few days by talking a bit about the games I play and why I like them (and that might take a while), maybe with some painting logs interspersed. I have Opinions about Scale as well, which I’ll probably get around to sharing. Hopefully eventually I’ll just settle into a pattern of sharing whatever I’m working on at the moment, supported by reports of games and game meet-ups, thoughts about games and systems, and whatever of the sort strikes my fancy.
