First Post…   1 comment

Hello, my name is Tatterdash (not really), and I have been invited to participate in this blog.  I am a long time gamer, longer than I can remember, but have only recently joined the gaming community in Toronto.  I haven’t really got a lot to say, and I do not enjoy talking about myself, but I am going to give this a try.  I also feel compelled to make my posts entertaining, witty, and interesting, which is a tall order.

Excuse me for a moment, I have yet to clean the frying pan I recently cooked a steak in… it has some beef fat in it.

And one of my (three) cats is currently licking it…

I think it will teach them bad habits…  So I’ll put an end to what is probably the highlight of Oliver’s  existence (that’s his name).

OK… the pan is washed and Oliver is elsewhere, that killed a few minutes.

Now then…

Games, games, games.  Let’s start at the beginning:

I’ve been playing roleplaying games since I was 8 years old, starting with the Basic D&D Set I got that year for my birthday.  I didn’t understand it very well, but I liked it and little did I know I would be still playing its spin-off game (The Pathfinder RPG) more than 30 years later.

When I was 16, I bought my first metal miniatures from Leisure World in the Oshawa Centre.  I think I still have them somewhere, Ral Partha Fighters with Two-Handed Swords, and Elf Magic-Users.  Maybe I’ll paint them for a blog project.

After years of practice, I consider myself a passable painter.  It got me a job at Games Workshop, but for various reasons, it wasn’t the job for me.

I am too slow a painter to be a GW employee, and I am too fast a painter to win any contests…

I will probably, between Post Modernist tangents and such, eventually post painting tips, pictures of minis, battle reports, and other thoughts.  I also make beer as my day job, so I may even ramble about that (maybe even while drunk, which should be immensely entertaining, if not for you than certainly for me).

I am quite grateful to have met such a swell bunch of lads though Mr. Asmzero… and look greatly forward to future gaming.

  1. Welcome Scotterdash! Er…Tatterscott? Hrm.
    Anyway, you forgot to mention how awesome Malifaux is! 🙂 Let’s hope you can get some more games in and we can see some more posts up here.
    In fact, we’ll try to let you in on as much gaming as possible so you can post as much as possible.
    Yes…post! post! post!
