Here we go again

After a year of maintaining a blog on my own domain, I have come to realization that blogger provides a better experience. 

1) It's FREE!
2) It is very easy to maintain, add posts, etc.
3) Most importantly, the community. Most wargaming blogs I read are also blogger based.  Being able to follow and be followed easily is a great benefit.

Therefore, I am coming back to blogger.

Moving blog to www.miniaturewargaminggeek.com

As I have gotten more familiar with maintaining a blog and building web pages, I realize I want more flexibility than a free blog allows.  Thus I have taken the plunge and registered a domain of my own.  I plan to add tutorial sections on terrain building as well as information about regional gaming conventions.  I hope you will stop by an visit at www.miniaturewargaminggeek.com.

Thank you!

1/72 Colonial

Recently I purchased a large amount of Ral Partha 25mm colonial miniatures which I am in the process of painting.  I like the sturdiness of metal figures and 25mm is a bit larger than traditional 1/72 plastics. Given that I moving more in that direction for my colonial gaming, I thought I would put out my 1/72 collection for a last "hurrah" and some photos.  Hope you enjoy!

25mm Ral Partha British Camel Corps

Today I finished up two 10 man units of British Camel Corps for my Sudan project.   I still have to paint up the actual camels to use as scenery, but for my dismounted units I preferred to base them separately for movement purposes.

I purchased a large amount of Ral Partha 25mm miniatures at a Flea Market recently so I am moving to metal and likely will not be painting any more 1/72 figures in the immediate future.

3D printing miniatures?

Although, it will probably be some time before we can design a miniature in a program like CAD and then print it off as a three dimensional piece, the technology continues to develop.


If you have $15,000 or so, you can buy a pretty decent machine that would fit in an office. If you have $100,000, you can get something truly awesome, but you’ll need a warehouse to store it.
The rest of us will be checking out the hobbyist kits that run in the $1,000 to $2,000 range.
