So, in light of TG's sig de-moto poster over on THR ("DRIVE ME CLOSER... I want to hit them with my sword!" referring to a sword-wielding idiot in the commander's hatch of a tank), I just thought I'd see if there were any other miniatures or gamer nuts lurking about...

Myself...
Tabletop: Axis & Allies Miniatures, A&AM War at Sea, Wings of War/Wings of Glory, forthcoming Sails of Glory (designer's a friend, who also created Wings of War), forthcoming Monster Hunter International RPG

PC: StarCraft, StarCraft II, Command & Conquer franchise pre-C&C4, Freelancer

Anybody else game enough to step up and admit it? :D

There is a series of novels based on the game; I'd like to read them sometime. The problem is establishing the sequence--reading series' out of order is not a little annoying to me!

Geeesh. I used an image I found on the 'net that most closely resembled a "Mad Max" scenario. I didn't know it was "Warhammer," nor do I even know what "Warhammer" is. You make it sound like something to be ashamed of.
BTW if you're wondering what this is about, it's about this:

Nice poster. 'Warhammer 40,000K' is a wargame set in the far future.

I'll gladly cop to some gaming. I did a bit of play testing for the early Harpoon naval series as well as the M1 Tank Platoon sims.

I don't have as much time these days to "game" but it sure beats daytime t.v. if the weather's bad and you're stuck at home like I was for a few weeks.

Of late I've spent some time on Starcraft and Mass Effect.

TG, amigo, was just busting your chops a little. :) Besides, as a gamer myself, though NOT a Warhammer guy, it was as good an excuse as any to see if anybody else here was into pushing miniatures around tabletops when not out shooting...

Hey, Snake45 is a model airplane builder (so am I), and most modern gun nuts have at least one geeky hobby, so I just thoguht I'd open up the discussion, give the forum nerds and geeks something else to bond over.

Nice!

I remember DOS DOOM... LOL Casual, a lot of your list's also bringing back memories here. (Never got Jane's F-15 to work, but the ATF/USNF/etc Fighters Anthology was a blast.

Never did miniatures.

On the tabletop I did Shadowrun (II,) Star Wars, and Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.

Online (Text Based) I have done Shadowrun (II & III) as well as Star Trek (Yes, really.) TNG/DS9 era as well as "Between TOS and TNG" era.

I helped out in a Live Action Vampire Game that took place through a College student building after hours. That was interesting!

I haven't gamed in yonks though..... more a scheduling thing than anything else, would love to try it again sometime.

That woodwork is spectacular, BTW!

Gaming, model building, other hobbies?

I never got into gaming and my model building skills were never up to par. I used to build electronic kits (a looooooong time ago). I've been trying to get my boys interested in chess but that dog don't hunt.

My hobbies these days are Amateur Radio(HAM) and Cryptography. What else are you guys spending your time and money on besides shooting and firearms?

I'll admit to playing tabletop for longer than I have been shooting firearms.

With Videogames I've only been playing them for about 17 years now.

Link to one that I'm doing some research in support of (right now they're doing the Napoleonic Wars, and I'm researching the ships of the Naval War of 1812 to help figure out major sculpts needed for it) that's doing a Kickstarter for capital:
Sails of Glory - Miniatures Ship Combat by Ares Games - Kickstarter

Usually, naval miniatures have involved having to build and paint ships with all kinds of nasty small parts; Sails of Glory is one of the few naval lines (okay, the ONLY other I know is the defunct Axis & Allies: War at Sea) to offer prepainted, preassembled miniatures.
