My name is Michael Hanns and I am a miniature wargamer and hobbyist. My focus is mostly on the Horus Heresy and Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game systems from Games Workshop, though I’ve played my fair share of Warhammer 40,000 and Age of Sigmar as well. I’ve also got a real soft spot for some of the Specialist Games, especially Blood Bowl.
My infatuation with miniature wargaming dates back to my childhood in the late 90s, when a friend introduced me to the art and miniatures of 3rd Edition Warhammer 40,000. From the moment I stepped sheepishly into the Games Workshop to buy my first paint and models set, I was hooked. I played a number of armies across 3rd-4th Edition 40K and 6th Edition Fantasy before taking a hiatus that lasted a little over a decade.
This blog began somewhere between 18 months and 2 years since I jumped feet first back into the hobby, and I use it primarily as an outlet to discuss and chart my hobby progress, as well as a place to occasionally dump my thoughts or opinions on the broad topic of miniature wargaming in general.
I really love writing this blog. It’s not my job, but another part of my miniature wargaming hobby that I enjoy and take pride in. You’ll never see any obnoxious banner ads, clickbait or irritating pop-up adverts here. But if you enjoy my blog – whether it inspires you or just helps kill some time on your lunch hour – please consider making your next order of miniatures and/or hobby supplies from Element Games using my affiliate link. It costs you nothing extra, and I get a little kickback that helps pay for my hosting and domains – win-win! For double Crystals, my promo-code is MIC6931. Alternatively, if you play Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game, consider buying my Hero Tracker app on the Google Play Store.
