Over the years I've contributed to several different wargame and modelling forums, often posting blog type reports on games or modelling projects. It seemed the logical next step was to do this on my own blog and so I started this one just over 12 months ago. I'm not sure what my expectations were, or indeed, if I had any at all. I was content to do something that kept a record for myself and shared what I did with the wider community. I've realised now, it is the response that I get from others that so often makes all the effort worthwhile and keeps me motivated.
Just the other day I was reading the latest issue of Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy.
I tend to enjoy the opinion columns and the product reviews and these are often the articles I go to first. As the owner of a few sets of Too Fat Lardies rules, I will often gravitate to Rich Clarke's Up Front column, so you can imagine the buzz I got to read his piece about my AARs for The Road to Bremen pint sized campaign for Chain of Command:
It's great to get this sort of feedback and I'd just like to thank all of you out there that have posted responses to the AARs, be it here on the blog or in any of the various forums (fora?) where I post links, be it The Miniatures Page, Lead Adventure Forum, Too Fat Lardies or the Wargamers Forum (a bastard offspring of the sadly defunct The Guild). Thank you, one and all, for your generous comments and the encouragement.
