The year is almost done, but I have a few more words to add here on The Renaissance Troll. It’s actually been a big year for the blog. In fact, this blog is the 122nd I’ve written this year. Now, most of these fall under the ‘Hey, look at this mini I painted’ category, but actually, there was some pretty good diversity overall. I have just taken some time to scan through all of the blogs this year and pick out my 13 Favourites.
This was just a great experience, and a good reminder to myself to try and take advantage of the opportunities that are presented by living so close to London.
I am part of an amazing community of game designers, and this little project was just loads of fun.
Trying to understand life in my early 40s.
A look back at some of my history with Osprey Publishing and my first attempt to write set of wargame rules.
I major geek milestone.
I had this idea that it might be possible to combine playing games with doing real world good. I created a science-fiction wargame and used it to raise over a $1,000 for charity.
A bit of gaming writing I did for no better reason than it was fun.
Remembering an important moment from my childhood.
A miniature photo shoot that just makes me smile.
A rare blog about the challenges and difficulties of fatherhood.
Almost certainly the most important hobby blog I wrote this year. The ideas behind it have changed my relationship with miniatures and greatly increased my enjoyment.
The first product of the ideas in the above blog.
