Getting Started

I've been taking a few days to decide where I wanted to go with my next entry on the blog and whether I wanted to go straight into the modeling and painting aspects or take a bit more time introducing myself. I finally decided on the later.

So first, a little about me. I started playing, painting and running campaigns of Necromunda back only a few months after its original release back in the days of 2nd Edition 40K. From running campaigns for my friends and local gaming scene, I moved on to writing for Fanatic in Necromunda Magazine and Fanatic online. I was also part of Necromunda's Rules Review Committee and a relatively active member of the forum communities. During my time writing for the magazines, I was flattered to see several articles published including rules for dogs, expanded rules for dealing with captive gangers, rules for fielding traders and much more.

Alas, such things were not to meant to last and eventually the publications for Specialists games trickled away. Anymore, Necromunda mostly lives on in the forums and every once in a while on an overview by one 40k podcast or another. After returning from a brief hiatus, I have been eager to grow the online Necro community, continue painting my collection and share some of the articles and ideas that, unfortunately, never made it to publication with Specialist Games.

And so it is my hope that this blog will help me to accomplish all of these goals. Along with my modeling and painting, a great deal of space on this blog will be dedicated to new material for the game as well as tutorials on how to set up campaigns, get new players interested in the game and some other cool things like battle reports and a piece of fiction here and there.

Anyway, that's the plan. In the meantime, however, let's take a look at some more pictures from stuff I've done before. Most of these pictures are pretty old, and represent the last generation of painting and terrain building. It seems every time I get back into the hobby I get a little better at everything, so most of these early pictures are from my last generation of painting a ability and probably two past generations of terrain building. It is another hope of mine that as the blog progresses, I'll be able to see the improvements as I go along.

That's it for now. If you're reading this, thanks for your time and I'd love to hear any comments you may have.
