I believe these might have been Roger's first posts from the dump that I took from the old notables group.

Done it at last, purchased "War in Catalucia" which I had been meaning to do for ages. Really enjoyed reading it and get that funny feeling that my table will soon resound to the crack of the "Bessie" and the "Charredville". reminds me of a poem "The Bakur boomed from the treeline, the rifle orc laughed and fled, and the elves of the 2ieme voltigeurs picked up their capitaine, dead. He'd a little dark mark on his forehead, and the back was blown out of his head". Hubward Nibbling, poet and (exceedingly good) cake maker of Londinium.

Hello Matt, I'm an old crumbly who started gaming in the late '60s. Figures were crude, very limited in range and rules usually a few typed sheets of A4 stapled together. As a result you had to be gamer, painter and modeller all rolled into one (often rule writer too). Fortunatelyly all this has changed beyond anything we could have imagined back then, but the "tradition" of being gamer, painter and model maker has continued. I enjoy all elements of the hobby. I always think that since somebody has gone to all the effort of creating the miniatures (something beyond my skill!) I should paint them as well as I can. I particularly like the "Erin" range of figures, the faces are so well done that each one has a character of it`s own and so deserve T.L.C. when painting. I`d swear that the little metal folk fight harder for you as a result (Honest!). Cheers! Roger.
