Thanks for checkin' out this blog. A quick bit about me: I have been wargamming and painting since the early 90's. In 1999 I was diagnosed with cancer and had less than a 30% chance of survival. My life in late 1999 and early 2000 was spent mostly in a hospital. In one span, I stayed there for nearly 5 months, never able to leave my room. One of the things that keep me sane was they let me have my paints and miniatures, and in that long hospital stay, I had managed to paint 2500+ in Iron Warriors Chaos Marines from the 'other' game company. I even had a short story in one of the White Dwarf magazines (I forgot the issue, I'll post it when I look it up).
Eleven years later, I have a clean bill of health, am cancer free, have a loving wife and a happy life. One thing I retained from the ordeal was my passion for modeling and painting. I switched to playing Warmachine/Hordes a couple years ago due to my friends pushing me into it. I have never looked back since.
