Hi, I’m Dave Yeeles and I’m a wargaming butterfly although I tend towards the twentieth century. I have a large pile of unpainted lead and half finished projects although budgetary constraints are forcing me to be more disciplined these days.
I did have an idea for a brilliant kickstarter project but a change of job means I no longer have enough time to spare for it. Maybe when my kids are older.06/08/2014 at 06:48 #3501
Hi, I’m another recent exile from “that other place.” Been in the hobby since ’77; historicals only for me though I’ll happily borrow things and ideas from other genres whenever possible. Gaming this year for me has been air combat, WW II and jets, in 1/285 using Check Your 6, AWI in 15 & 28 mm using Flint & Steel, and AWI skirmish in 28 mm using This Very Ground.
Mike – thanks for setting this site up! It’s needed and it seems to be starting off well. Fingers, toes, and eyes crossed that it will grow and thrive!
Now if we can just get people to quote Monty Python more often…

Ruddy heck, it’s all shiny and new in here, innit?
I came along at the redoubtable Mr. Henry Hyde’s recommendation, to have a rummage around and wish the site all the best.
Massive hello to anybody I know from other forums!

Hey Dudes good to see yall again!!!13/08/2014 at 09:20 #4237
Another wargamer from New Zealand here. I pop on on TMP and LAF from time to time as Natholeon, but mostly post my thoughts and doings on my blog.
I’ve been gaming for plenty of years now, originally inspired by Charles Grant and Donald Featherstone to push my plastic Airfix and Esci figures around the table in a slightly more formal and mature way than I had been doing (I do still occasionally make ‘explodey’ sounds, though). I have a general interest in pretty much everything, but World War One, the Seventeenth Century and Republican Rome/the Hellenistic age are my pet periods.
I used to write my own rules, but it is so much easier to play games with other people with commercial sets that I spend most of my gaming time playing SAGA and Flames of War. Never being satisfied I do still like to experiment with and tweak these.
Great to see so many familiar names popping up over here, including some of the exiles from a certain other site. Thanks Mike and Sam for making this happen.

I’m Howard Whitehouse. I occasionally go under the ‘Mexican Jack Squint’ name, although MJS is sneakier than I am. I’ve been around the wargaming world since, um, Minifigs were top of the line. I’ve written rules, articles and books, and done bits of work for lots of companies (good, bad, honest, less than honest, capable, purely incompetent, still living, now dead etc). Right now I am half of Pulp Action Library, all of ‘Brushes with Danger’, and author of a forthcoming piece of quality literature for ten year olds, “Zombie Elementary”.
I live in New York state (rocks and trees rather than skyscrapers) but I’m really a bloke from Birmingham. Ar.

I am concerned that the cuff buttons on my 15mm Spanish might be incorrect for 1813-14. I couldn’t stand the humiliation if someone notices.

Hello all fellow gamers and modelers my name is William Harley (common handle Willz).
I have been war-gaming from 1972 when a friend in Ipswich introduced me to Napoleonic war-gaming with Airfix figures, I then found the “Wargame” in the local library and have not looked back. The periods I have played range from early medieval, late medieval, war of the roses, War of the Austrian Succession, Seven Years War, Napoleonic wars all 28mm, World War 2 20mm and (40k when figure prices were sensible).
I have been an avid “Rapid Fire” gamer for 20 odd years now, currently I have drifted back to my favorite period 18th century and I am refurbishing my 28mm figures. They were individually based but now I am basing infantry 40 x 40mm 4 figures and cavalry 50 x 50mm 2 figures per base. The main reason for the base change is transport and stowage (the figures kept falling over when based individually).
My ethos is gaming and painting figures are for fun, I do not do competition gaming, the hobby is to be enjoyed.17/08/2014 at 19:57 #4775
Hi all, Wingco here.
Been wargaming since the 70s and hanging out on t’interweb wargame forums since 2002. Guess which is more fun ?
My internet access is very occasional but will attempt to post piccies of my stuff and answer sprog questions if I can.
Best wishes to Michael in this venture after his shameful treatment elsewhere.18/08/2014 at 16:00 #4827
I recognize a number of folks here. I’m hopeful this proves a productive forum. I like discussing rules, craft tips and sourcing the elusive 28mm oddity. While I’ll make a periodic wry joke, I don’t use web forums to socialize and preach my personal poop-losophies. I try to post sincerely without excessive sarcasm, something that doesn’t translate well internationally. My greatest gaming passions tend to be writing complete rulesets for convention games to explore an evolving game design concept relating to managing chaos…the complete antithesis of tidy, predictable games from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
While I have a history degree, my profession has been entrepreneurial technologies. I game with various groups: old friends, young gamers at the various local brick-and-mortar stores, neighborhood family games and more academic games with the local historical gaming club. I have consumed most of my gaming news via RSS feeds since last year I stopped posting to a poorly moderated forum.

Editor Mike: You and Editor Sam are doing a great job, and I thank you for it!
There seems to be new people joining every day and the discussions grow every day. The atmosphere here is friendly, helpful, and fun. It’s a breath of fresh air; banishment from elsewhere on the internet and then coming here feels like release from a toxic dungeon into the sunlight of the first day of Spring. Unlike A. N. other site that’s on the decline, this one is on the rise. WELL DONE!
Soon as I get a paycheck (sometime in the next 7-10 days) I’ll put my money where my mouth is become a paying supporter. Thanks again!

I second everything said by Mr. Frog. I have found this site welcoming, and the members helpful without being in any way condescending. I think I will have to join Frog at the end of the month and become a supporting member.
Thanks Editors Sam and Mike
Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!18/08/2014 at 19:23 #4856
Yeah, if this site keeps growing… and I hope it does… it could easily become my go-to wargaming site, along with LAF.18/08/2014 at 21:33 #4885
I like this place.18/08/2014 at 23:56 #4902
You would think this is a PMT X members site or something…
Well I guess I will fit right in.
One thing I would like to say is “Bandit” Sir you are the word Warrior you had
him on the ropes and he couldn’t handle it…
I’m glad to be here and can help with info on just about anything Nappy, ACW, Marlborough etc…
Good to see you all here
