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.
mproteau: I can now access my models! I think it was just waiting for me to return to work... Sketchup didn't want me wasting any of my vacation time, but my WORK time is a whole other story.

mproteau: Ugh. Just got back from vacation, refreshed and ready to make progress. I go to load my sketchup reference model (which I had done at work, so I used the online sketchup version) and... "Sorry, we seem to be having problems looking up your models."

squirmydad: I disabled the PostImage button and found a cute workaround for the broken images, things should be okay again.

squirmydad: New "Add Image" button added, not Postimage, some place called imgbb, seems to work, go try to break it while we wait on postimage to get their act together.

Vermin King: don't freak out about the edits... just cc'ing the org's

Vermin King: Well, changing 'postimage.org' to 'postimage.cc' allows an image to show (I was wondering if the codes migrated, and it works). There isn't a way to do something in the forum code making that switch forum-wide is there?

Vermin King: I wonder why postimg.cc is working and postimg.org isn't. Why wouldn't they work off the same platform, unless they changed their user agreement...

lightning: With all the problems with the new Win10 update (pics on the forum and photoshop) I really wonder how a) MS tests their updates and b) how application developers program these days that an update can have these effects?!?

oldschooldm: Is there a way we can poke the server to make this substitution automatically?

oldschooldm: postimg.cc seems to be working, but postimg.org isn't.

cowboyleland: I am currently in the process of recovering from the latest update. I have to wonder how much productivity the averaged windows update sucks out of the world. I have no news on Tomoko coreyhaim8mydog
