Welcome to the launch of Mini Mayhem - The Blog! I'm writing this blog to document my personal activity in the hobby of tabletop miniatures games, including:
- Painting miniatures, ranging from tabletop quality to display quality.
- Playing games -- mainly fantasy, sci-fi, and alternative, but with an eye towards historical, too -- both skirmish and army-scale.
- Designing my own game, which I've been working on since 2006, called...Mini Mayhem!
- Organizing events. I organize local Demo Days to showcase the lesser known miniatures games, and I volunteer time to the NOVA Open, a large wargame tournament/convention in Arlington, Virginia.
The reason I'm starting a blog is because I already maintain a fairly regular painting diary on the painting forum, WAMP. I have so much more activity in the hobby (some of it very exciting and new -- at least to me!), that I decided to expand both the scope of my diary as well as the scope of my audience. I expect to write short but fairly regular content, and I'll probably continue to dual-post to WAMP.
If you're interested in checking out essentially the backlog of this blog, check out these Work in Progress (WIP) threads on WAMP:
- Nov 2010 to Sep 2011. Building out a Lizardman army, eventually destined to play at NOVA Open 2011.
- May 2011 to Jul 2011. Freebooter Fate Goblin Pirates.
- Jul 2011 to Nov 2011. Continuation of the Lizardman army.
- Sep 2011. Wood Elf King.
- Nov 2011 to Sep 2012. Total hobby attention-deficit-disorder (ADD). Multiple projects. Basically what morphed into this blog.
