There and back again…..

About 27 years ago I made an adventure, across town-on my bicycle, to the local and now defunct Hobby Center to purchase Warhammer Fantasy Battle 3rd Edition. From that day forward I was no longer a role-play enthusiast- I was a role-play-war-game player. For a short while I enjoyed the miniature war-game as an extension of my D&D, and other role-play game origins. I would build adventures, worlds & heroes from my raw imagination. It was fun and creative, but it all changed.

The game of Warhammer gradually shifted away from creation of narrative and story. The game drove sales under the heels of competition. Tournaments and competition were the elements that stole from this hobby- and it stole creativity and morphed the game into some ugly back-alley crap game. Tournament style games crushed the life out any campaigns, narrative games, and even painting and hobby. No longer do the players savor a manicured table-top battlefield, nor do many players build their own terrain or thematic battles. Most of the younger players can only view the game from the perspective of tournament wins. Victory alone can not sate juggernaut of Tournament Hammer…Long gone are the days of High Adventure….

On this blog I want to create fantasy worlds with a glint of genius & artist, and the passion of the youthful days when this was all new.

I intend on offering the world, my world… An Adventure in Miniature.
