I decided to create a blog to archive my various projects related to gaming. I’ve been a long time gamer and painter, and within the last eight years, a tabletop wargamer. I have done various freelance writing and editing projects, and I am a demo game volunteer for various companies such as
Privateer Press and Steve Jackson Games. Currently, I’m a Ninja for Ninja Division and working on a Ninja Division fan magazine. In addition, my most recent editing has been on the English version of Cipher Studio’s Hell Dorado rulebook and writing some fluff for Cipher’s Inferno expnasion.
I have been actively gaming since the early to mid-eighties, but only in 2001 did I join the tabletop wargaming crowd when Privateer Press released Warmachine upon the world. From then on, I couldn’t resist!
Being an active painter, I am currently working on various projects includes Pulp City,
Uncharted Seas, Warmachine and Hordes, Dark Realm Miniatures, Ambush Alley (Rebel Minis in 15mm), Darkson Design’s AE: Bounty, Hell Dorado, and some of my other projects include playtesting and running various game sites. Besides my hobbies, I am a school teacher, teaching English and being part time counselor at a small school in in SE Kansas.
The aim of this site is to provide an outlet for my various interests and to provide a narrative to my gaming exploits. Pen and Lead will help provide an impetus for my lack of follow-through on the various projects and unpainted miniatures, and more.
I currently have two guest bloggers who will be sharing their outlook on the hobby gaming world.
Now, follow along as we delve into the world of blogging!
