Always good to see new members !!08/12/2017 at 03:43 #78197
I am reminded how much I love this site!08/12/2017 at 13:06 #78226
It used to be a well kept secret, but I think TWW is now fairly widely known, & respected, as a decent & functioning wargames’ site.
Like most things in life, it’s down to the people involved & there are a good crowd here. TWW: long may it run!

Hi all, I finally got round to registering after lurking here for a while. I recently came back to miniatures gaming after a short 20 year break. I mostly do naval stuff, but dabble in other areas too. Recent projects, which I will post pics of at some point, have been late 19th century naval, Missile Threat (cold war air combat) and Gaslands.24/12/2018 at 04:03 #106288
My name’s my user name, so that’s taken care of. Also known as “Spanner” many years ago. I’ve been gaming since I was 13, starting with Airfix figures and Charles Grant rules. Now, too many years later, I mainly use 15mm/18mm for ancients and the mid-18th century (Grant’s rules again). But also have some 28mm stuff for Saga, Napoleonic and SYW skirmish, Wings of War/Wings of Glory WWI and Perry’s excellent Wars of the Roses figures. There’s even some 1/300 WWII, though they haven’t had a run in 10+ years, and some /2400 ironclads. I will have a go at anything, though, and we have a small group in the Canberra area that has played everything from Dark Ages to 1970’s on land, sea and air games.
Then there’s board wargames, though I haven’t played any in years.
Background- Aussie, 24 years in the Army (vast majority in the ARA) as an infantryman then an electronics technician with RAEME. Since retiring from the ARA I’ve tended to stay in the Defence world (aka “The Black Hole” or the “Purple People Eater”), either as a technician or as a technical writer. Failed my first try at retiring (I’m ashamed to say I’m not as lazy as I hoped), so I’m back as a contracted technical writer.

How very nice to see you here, Dal. I will value your expertise as well as good company. Alas, I’m still asking daft questions.
BTW I think you should only retire when you have to.

Welcome aboard Dal. I used to enjoy your Spanner and Yank site back in the day 🙂

I am finally here, thanks to Nordic Weasel endlessly pestering me…
Kidding. I’m a G+ refugee looking for a home and Ivan pointed out that TWW doesn’t suck.
But riddle me this: trying to customize my profile….as soon as i tap ‘Update’ it tells me 404: no such website as https://www.thewargameswebsite.com/profile/fearnow/edit/
What am I doing wrong?
Just this guy, you know?11/01/2019 at 05:07 #107292

Welcome! TWW indeed does not suck!
I’m sure Mike will be along in not too long to address your quandary.

Hi. Thanks for joining. What is it you are trying to do?
I can see you have uploaded an image. Could you drop me an e-mail please?23/04/2019 at 11:08 #113101
Hello all, new in town!
Been an rpg/mini’s gamer for… well, a long time (uh, since ’82). Been dabbling in this and that ever since, another serial starter, not so much finisher! Last finished thing I had was an Eldar army, mid-late 90’s.
Interests are largely sci-fi and fantasy, though the latter has been a bit stale for me these last 20 years or so.
Ironic, perhaps, that its fantasy that brings me here – by way of Jagannaths 15mm sci fi over on LAF (lurker), the converted monk/priest led me to the Croms Anvil store, that led to unexpected fantasy enthusing, staying up way late reading chronicles and 40 page threads here, buying Burning Sands, reading through and then ordering a bunch of Croms Anvil stuff 🙂
“…serial starter, not so much finisher! ” Maybe this time can be different…

Well, if I like what I see when my order arrives (and looking at all the pics and post of/about them I’ve absorbed this past few days, why wouldn’t I?!), its payday next Tuesday, and them desert buildings look mighty fine…23/04/2019 at 15:11 #113131
