And so it begins...

I decided to start up this hobby blog to share some of what I'm doing with my various hobbies (primarily wargaming stuff, but I expect other things will occasionally sneak into the blog posts).

I wasn't really sure if I wanted to do this, since it would probably turn out to be just so much more noise on the Internet. However, I recently started running the blog for the submarine veterans group I belong to (you can see it in the blog list to the right) and this just seemed like a natural extension of that. I hope that there will be a few people interested my posts, but I suspect that it will turn out more like this ...

My wargaming stuff covers both miniatures and boardgames, but most of the pictures for the blog will be of my miniatures, which by a funny coincidence are primarily ships (although I am a big fan of airplanes too). Here is a little sample of some of my stuff.

This picture shows some of my 1/700 scale modern naval ships (although the sailing dhow in the upper left could pretty much be from any era). I try to include some interesting pictures in my posts, but we'll just have to see how that goes.


  1. Nice to see you take the plunge. It will be fun until you run into those times when you're tongue-tied or haven't done anything to write about for a while. You can do what I do and just make stuff up ;)

  2. It should be fun to share some of my stuff around. The biggest problem I worry about is that I will just be talking to myself.

  3. There will be a couple of people reading... mind if I post a link on my blog?

  4. El Grego, feel free to post a link. Hopefully I can put up enough good posts to keep people interested.
