About me

Gender MALE
Industry Construction
Occupation Electrician
Location Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand
Introduction An ardent wargamer since my first knee crunching encounters against the evil Airfix Nazis on the lounge floor. We chose WW2 Desert because my mate had a sand coloured rug and Airfix tanks were moulded in sand yellow plastic. My love of the hobby really took off when I had the good fortune to meet my fellow wargaming mates some twenty years ago. A seperate games room helps as well.Those same mates now comprise the Wednesday night warriors also known as 'the Southern Strategists'. I'm still getting the hang of this jolly blogging stuff so please forgive any cock ups.
