Hello all! My name is Ken, and I’m happy to be here. I just found out about this site yesterday and I’m liking what live seen so far. I game mostly SciFi & horror games. I have a mix of 15mm & 6mm minis, plus some 3mm moderns & 28mm Incursion board game minis.21/08/2014 at 22:24 #5380
Welcome Ken.22/08/2014 at 16:50 #5477James RiveraParticipant
Hi all. Just signed up here and really like the look of things. Skimmed through the ancients section and already found a bunch of pleasant miniature gaming discussions that will be a treat exploring. I game primarily 15mm ancients, napoleonics and WWII, with the exception of a rather large GW LotR’s collection and few DUST minis. Love the hobby and look forward to contributing here.
I would like to offer one suggestion however. Would it be possible to maybe allow both supporting and non-supporting to ‘see’ and respond to postings in the Trading Post. Totally appropriate to limit initiating posts for sale or trade to Supporting only, but won’t allowing everyone to see them greatly increases the likely hood of making a sale. I ask this cause the marketplace section of the previous website I had been frequenting is about the only thing left there of much interest to me.
Thanks, James22/08/2014 at 17:31 #548126/08/2014 at 18:57 #5938IannickParticipant
(Lets try this again, my last post disappeared!)
Hi from Montreal, just registered. Lots of familiar faces around here, nice to see you all! I play, paint and love Napoleonics, but I’m also working on a Biblical, FIW and TYW projects. And a year ago I caught the Oldhammer bug, big time.
I also work with Roger Murrow on Murawski miniatures.
Links to my many blogs and websites are in my signature (as soon as I figure out how to properly format it it will look much better!)
I wish the best to this place, and long may it prosper!

Had been thinking the same thing. It also encourages more users to become supporting members since they can see the activity.27/08/2014 at 14:40 #6015Northern MonkeyParticipant

Hi Iannick, Another big name in Napoleonics on this site. You are very welcome Sir!
I’m not sure I consider myself a big name but hey, I’ll take it! Thanks Sparker! Its great to see y’all here. It reminds me a bit of another Forum I used to frequent, but circa 2004
Small suggestion : this place needs more emoticons

OOooops I already posted some messages and answers here in TWW, by I didn’t see this thread to introduce myself!
So, hello, I’m Patrice I live in Central Brittany (in Brittany, France), and nearly 20 years ago I was guilty of writing an unusual skirmish rule « Argad ! » and since then I continue to play with it and with some people who really like it
I run a modest French-language forum, http://argad.forumculture.net/
I usually post English translations of my game AARs on LAF and a link to them in other forums (another one since recently… and now this one), and I like to take part in historical discussions and wargaming discussions when I can.

Welcome to the forum, although you have already made a valuable contribution! Central Brittany – sounds wonderful!29/08/2014 at 02:19 #6250TMP ChampionParticipant
Just dropping in to say Hi!29/08/2014 at 10:29 #6286Marshal SinCereParticipant
Its really fantastic to see so many names that I recognise from other places.
My name is James and I’m from Bristol. 34 years old, recently married just 20 days ago and feeling as happy as can be. Finding out that there is a new and exciting wargames forum on return from my honeymoon to Cuba has just made me even happier. I hope TWW goes from strength to strength, I love what I have seen of it so far.
Like Bandit, I got out of TMP during its bizarre implosion. It is my opinion that the TMP Editor can only blame himself for what he has done to his own site. Hopefully TMP’s loss will be TWW’s gain.
My primary interest is in Napoleonic gaming and folks from TMP might remember me as ‘TelesticWarrior’. Hopefully if there is anyone reading this that I have clashed with on the other site, we can start afresh given this great new opportunity. I am trying out the name of Marshal SinCere firstly as a poor pun on the name of my all-time favourite of Napoleon’s Marshals, St Cyr, as well as it being a sincere effort to behave myself here and maintain good conduct.
I have a large collection of Warhammer fantasy armies and a huge amount of 1/72 plastic Napoleonics. I don’t get to game too much but now that the wedding is done and dusted I’m hoping to join the Lincombe barn wargame group and also to maybe try and get a Napoleonic boardgame that I have designed into commercial production. The working title is “Revolution & Empire”, and I hope to make more posts on this in the future.
P.S. would it be possible for someone who still has a TMP supporting member account to contact some of the old guard from the Nap boards and invite them over here? I’m thinking that it could be a huge boost to TWW, especially as some of them have expressed an interest personally to me about finding a new site, but I can’t contact them anymore. If you could please give a heads up to Whirlwind, Gustav, Flecktarn, Edwulf and RAFSquadron for me, plus any others that you think might like it over here.
Sorry for the long post.29/08/2014 at 23:56 #6431
Flecktarn has already taken Mike’s shilling- he hasn’t posted for a while but may be deployed or on Ex… as for the others I would let them know but my posts on TMP about TWW mysteriously disappear…..30/08/2014 at 00:00 #643330/08/2014 at 00:00 #6434Ivan SorensenParticipant

Afternoon all. Very glad to see several known faces (Etranger, Connard, Buff, Gaul, Jeremy, John, Patrice, Donald, Richard, etc.. ) .
I’m Fernando Darlington from Madrid, 44, previously known as Palafox on WD3, TMP and other forums. I’ve retaken miniature painting recently as in the past two years I’ve only seen the mountain lead rise more and more. BTW, do you have any ideas for speed painting?, with the figures getting a good look, of course.
Well, thanks for the efforts, Mike and the rest of webmasters. Hope to add something useful to the board.11/09/2014 at 15:45 #7968ExtraCrispyParticipant
Speed Painting….if you are doing lots of the same uniforms (like a couple dozen French for SYW) I have some techniques. But if you;re talking unique figs (Pulp or Old West) not so much.
One reason I game solely in 15mm and 6mm now is how much easier they are to paint. Black undercoat, block paint on top, flesh wash, done. With a good neat paint job there’s simply no reason to do all the highlighting etc. in these smaller scales – at 2ft you can’t see it anyway.
Plus I find it incredibly funny that we actually paint shadows on 3D objects that have real shadows anyway!12/09/2014 at 12:02 #8091Fernando DarlingtonParticipant
Thank you very much ExtraCrispy. Unfortunately and precisely Old West, Pulp, Weird World War III, WWII and Zulu war, all in 28mm are the periods I’m working on right now. Also arriving to Wargames from the modeling camp does not help at all for painting armies.
Though I’ll continue also in a year or so with ACW in 15mm.16/09/2014 at 13:43 #8451DoomkittenParticipant
I guess this is the closest to an introductions thread, so…
Hi! I’m Doomkitten. DK, Doomy or “J” to most people. I migrated after a little persuasion from Taccomms. At first I was a little concerned that it was going to be destined to become “just another place like -that other site-” but after lurking about and reading what others have said, I have to say I think it will be a pleasure to occasionally peek in here from time to time.
Best of luck with the site and here’s to making TWW a positive, inclusive and unbiased place for wargamers, painters, modelers and Armchair Napoleons alike.16/09/2014 at 13:45 #8452

I already appreciate seeing familiar screen names, and like the layout here!
I’ve a languishing blog and have been known as DarthBrom on other sites. My interests are ACW, Naps, SciFi, and pulp. My kids have been influenced and driven me towards Supers, fantasy, and Zombies.
I’m probably too busy with actual uniforms and family which also drains time and money. But that has also lead to the discovery of PDF and multipurpose use of minis. Because of my children we have actually used unlikely combos of French Naps vs not- Justice League, cowboys vs orcs, and all sorts of other bizarrematchups.19/09/2014 at 23:09 #8869Howard WhitehouseParticipant

Great to see you here. Would you be interested in playtesting a skirmish game of the C17th Iroquois/Huron wars called ‘Flint and Feather’?

Just a quick hello.
Usually a resident of Frothers and, until a random booting out, of TMP (which frankly is no great loss considering the behaviour of the Editor and a small number of members) .
However, saying what, I’d echo other posters comments about this being a site for wargaming and leaving the associated baggage of other sites at the door. I’d like to see this page go from strength to strength as a port of call for wargaming news and discussion.
Main interests are sci fi, weird wars and anything my butterfly like mind takes a fancy too.
Currently residing a stones throw from Bristol.07/10/2014 at 04:47 #10162McLaddieParticipant
Yes, it’s good to see some of the old faces and/or monikers and appreciate Mike and Sam creating this forum. I started wargaming at 10 with airfix ACW figures and a sandpile, but moved on to the airfix rules. Got into board games quickly after that [And the Spartans…ancient history] and finally found a Napoleonic club in LA where each member took a nation’s army. As a late comer, I got the Neapolitans/ Murat’s kingdom, which uniform-wise was just fine with me. College put a dent in any hobby activities. I sold Murat’s dandys. It wasn’t until after college and marriage that my Dad emptied the garage back home and brought me all my painted airfix figures and gaming stuff that I took it up again in the mid-seventies. My boys took to it pretty quickly and we were off.
Between being a contributing editor to a few wargame magazines, publishing a wargame or two and some boxtop covers, and board game art work, I was heavy into the hobby when I left my high school teaching job and became a training and educational game/program designer. It has involved a lot of traveling, particularly with my own consulting business for the last twenty years, but now that retirement is here, I can get serious about my own mountain of lead. I love anything 1754 to 1900 and have armies throughout those years, though I tend towards esoteric wars and armies… probably my first experience with the Neapolitans. I have just moved into the 20th century with Chain of Command.03/03/2015 at 01:09 #18932EdzardParticipant
My introduction: I’m Edzard from the Netherlands, and I sometimes try to be a general ruling over the destiny of little metal men. I also have a blog: http://moedbeleidentrouw.blogspot.nl/
I generally like my stuff 15mm and smaller, but I have painted 28mm. Starting, like many of us, with Games Workshop then moving into historicals.
Recently I have gotten into 3mm Napoleonics, and gee let me tell you those things are fun!
I thought TMP was the authority of historical wargame forums online, but I’m a little fed up with how their software works. It feels ancient. I hope to have something to add to this community.
Anyways, glad to be aboard. 🙂03/03/2015 at 01:28 #1893604/03/2015 at 20:26 #19071
