I started out as a sci-fi gamer, with fantasy on the side. Somewhere along the way, I went more towards fantasy (with a paper model side trip into Star Trek.) D&D and Frostgrave really encouraged that shift.
Today, on my hobby table, I have the following:
1) Dark Ages Irish
2) English Civil War Irish
3) 17th century Japanese.
4) WW2 Japanese
In a "current projects" box somewhere,I have two more warbands for Frostgrave and some sci-fi stuff for FiveCore.
I have no idea how I became a historical gamer…
Hi! I'm Harry, and I am a hobby addict. I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Pacific Theater (oddly in both 28mm infantry and 3mm aircraft.)
There is nothing wrong with being both a round-baser and a square-baser. You'll get arguments on both sides of that aisle, no matter where you stand. Personally, I have mostly sci-fi stuff (with a dash of fantasy and a little pulp) as the historical doesn't hold that much interest for me, but I still can turn out a WW2 vehicle if I find one that I like. So, enjoy what you do, and what takes your fancy, because isn't that the MOST important part of this hobby?

There's no such thing as sanity, and that's the sanest fact.
lightning: That is good advice but I still wish I could create faster to get all ideas out of my head in time :-)

Papercraft Warrior: The trick is, only projects you should start, are those that you can finish in reasonable time... all others get stuck in their own personal hell.

Coyotepunc: Hopefully tonight I will get some pictures up of Striders with tentacles and my kitbashed 1940s Manchurian building. Hopefully. I might just go to bed.

Vermin King: I think that's why I'm doing so many 'stupid' little projects these days. The projects I want to finish seem to be stuck in their own pocket universe

mproteau: I'm tempted to rename "Paper Realms" to "Glacial Studios" to reflect my pace.

okumarts: Really overwhelmed at work. Marking essays and projects at the end of a semester. I wish I could create stuff faster.

mproteau: 2 of 3 pages of the Local Heroes minis are done! I'm working on some 6" cave walls right now, kinda flip-flopping between the two tasks. Should have the set's cutfiles done tonight, though.

mproteau: Finally! A little success on my cave walls. I like what happened on my desk this morning, and it led me to a few more ideas. Time to work on the grids for the tiles..

mproteau: Good lord I hope I get better at what I'm doing, 'cause it isn't all that good right now! Time to pick up another pack of cardstock to feed to the cutter... lots of failed test builds...
