I started miniature gaming about 20 years ago when introduced to D&D in the 6th grade. D&D isn't really miniature gaming but buying and trying to paint the figures for dungeon adventures led to trying larger medieval/fantasy battles with Gary Gygax's Chainmail rules. I love history, so my interests through high school and college were Napoloenics, ACW, as well as Warhammer 40k. After my first few years in college, I got out of gaming to concentrate on school, my career, then MBA school, family, etc.
About two years ago (2003) my company transferred my family and I to Texas. After settling in, I found I had some extra time and was tiring of video gaming. I had recently found my old gaming miniatures after our move and wondered if there were any other gamers around. With some internet searching, I found the Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) group and got connected once again...YAY!!
My first venture upon returning to gaming and painting was Flames of War. I'm building both Russian Tankovaya and Strelkovy units.
Next up is a Teutonic Knights force for Might of Arms. Somewhat inspired by the movie "Kingdom of Heaven", my force will be for the Baltic crusades not the holy land. Enjoy the pics as I get them up. :)
