Welcome to Forever War!
Welcome to Forever War, my personal blog about miniature wargaming. I hope to post updates on my personal projects, product reviews, and an occasional battle report. I play a variety of wargames, from the popular Warhammer 40k to the more recent Bolt Action WWII wargame.
My introduction to miniature wargaming started in 1993 when an older friend started making styrofoam terrain for something he called Warhammer 40k. He showed me some metal space marines with the old beakie helmets and his styrofoam ruins he was melting with spray paint for cool "battle damage effects". I never got a chance to game with him, but a year later in another town, in another state, I happened upon the Warhammer 40k 2nd Edition boxed set in a local hobby store. I was not quite 14, and I was hooked.
Remember those old, horrible Tyranid models with the egg heads and gopher teeth?
Fast forward 20 years and I'm still gaming. Strangely, it doesn't feel like I have any more money to spend on my hobby than I did when I was 14, but I suppose the trade off is having a beautiful wife and two lovely daughters to share life with.
So kick back, read my posts, and make comments where you can! I also write more professional articles over at Hubpages, so feel free to stop by there and take a gander:
