Greetings my name is Neil. I am 36 according to my birth certificate. My profile tells my birth date so there is that. I guess I am a pretty regular vanilla nobody. Seen some things, done some stuff.

I got into miniatures during my extended stay in the surprisingly beautiful country of Iraq. Our one year tour was extended at the eleventh month to eighteen months, and I had some time on my hands in the wee hours of the evening between bomb us time and dinner time, so I started out small with the ever so familiar GW's Space M@@#$%@, so not to get sued for using their patented intellectual rights .. blah blah..

I noticed something (very important) while I modeled, (if that is the right word) and painted. The rest of the world was turned off and I was completely alone with my whatever part of my mind, and just a very surreal and peaceful place existed. So I have been doing it since then.

No one I am related to gets it, they are amazed at the things I create, but I catch some flack on the (is he crazy angle) now and again because, well like I said, no of them get it. So that's fun.

No I don't need a hug or anything, just letting you know who I am, that is what this thread is for right?.

What do I do? I am currently a union carpenter apprentice. It is a 4 year apprenticeship, and I am somewhere between year two and three.
It is completely up hill, and I am still not sure I want to do it. Shhh... don't tell anyone.. :whistle: ..

I possess an associates of applied science degree in computer and electronics engineering technology, that collects dust on the wall. I May go back into that field soon, so yeah.. Yes I can make and fix things... no I don't want to fix your broken VCR!!!!

Hobby: I messed with making a game that was a combination of many rule books, when I stumbled across this game, and have been hooked. Everything about the game is amazing, so I have no reason to go back to the others. I like what I like, and this game is wide open, has good people in charge of it... I call that a win!

If you have any questions about me, that I haven't already explained, I will do my best to answer them. I guess I am friendly, but I tend to enjoy the silence if you know what I mean?

I hope this doesn't make me seem, what ever.. Oh, you should buy TONS of MODELS from these guys! Remember, the more they make, the more they release, so do it, cause I said so!
:evil:

Oh this is an older picture of me:

I was in Kuwait.. I read too much!

Hello Neil!

I totally get the fact that none of your friends/relations get it. I have been wargaming for 22 years and none of my kids (I have 6) or my wife (I have one) get why I do it...

If you are ever in the Rhode Island area (perhaps for TempleCon) we should get together and play a game or ten...

And might I add, Thanks for your service. Two of my sons have served overseas (Iraq and Afghanistan), so I like to express my appreciation to veterans when I can.

Hope to see you across the table someday!
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

Awesome intro. It's interesting how varied the experiences of people who arrive at liking the same things have been.
