I'm always happy to talk to visitors to the blog!  Feedback and getting in touch with others who share the same interests is a big part of why I set this place up in the first place.  So please feel free to contact me about things you see here - comment on specific posts that interest you, no matter how old, or contact me through my email in the profile on the right.  Like most people I enjoy talking about my hobbies, especially with prospective or new modelers/painters/players.

Most of the blog posts are devoted to Warhammer 40K.  If you're new to that universe and want to know more or are thinking of getting into the game, the following links might be helpful:

Games Workshop is the company that comes up with the primary models and rules used. There are tons of third-party producers of variants and pieces also, as well as multiple places online where you can buy things.  And don't forget your local hobby stores!  Being able to see things up close and perhaps even meet other people who paint and play is a big plus.

Wargaming Tradecraft and From the Warp are a couple of great places to start looking at for painting tips.  There's of course a ton more, and browsing through the blogrolls and links to more blogrolls on the right will lead you to infinite wonders.

If you're looking to play but don't know which army to start with, there are lots of places that can offer advice, but I think a good place to start would be the overviews given by the Independent Characters podcast in Episode 42 (Imperial) and Episode 43 (Aliens and Chaos).  They have lots of other great episodes too, as do a number of other podcasts, but I think that those two would be a good place to start.

If you're looking for more information on something in the background to the game, a great place to start looking is the Lexicanum.

Another good place to look if starting out, or if you're the parent with a child that wants to start out, check out A Parent's Guide to Games Workshop by Screwed Up Dice.  There are also specific articles for each of the various GW systems.  The advice is centered around the UK, so prices will be in pounds, store suggestions will be in the UK, etc. but in general the advice should be transferable. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you!
