Okay, guess I took too long the on my first post, it got eaten. So short version...

I've been playing RPG's for 20 odd years. I like DnD, D20 Modern and Exalted. I've also played WarMachine, I liked the game, and hated painting mini's.

I live in Southern California, and found this site posted by some dual-citizens in the D20 Modern boards. This looks like a cool spot, and I'm tired of the "douchebaggery" that is constantly going on over there. : )

So there ya have it....

PS. Oh, i'm a man, at least the last time I checked... Yeah, still a man.  : P

you should just paint them. i was like that for a long time, but even a bad paintjob is better than no paint job. just make sure you buy some spray on primer first. that's my only tip for painting metal minis.  : D

Paint them!  You may be better than you think!

And go buy some Reaper Miniatures!

If you look at the entire history of the RPG industry, you'll see the same, long, sad story: a mountain of conventional wisdom, usually backed by selective listening, that leads to a long chain of failed games and bad ideas. - Mike Mearls

So... I hear you like mudkips. :P

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.

Ive had this conversation before, and it was decided that if anyone wanted to have sex with me, all they would have to do is bring a mudkip with them.

Hi all,

I found BG via the podgecast, when listening to the episode discussing min/maxing with Meg.

I'm a "married with kids" software engineer by day... and pretty much the same by night.

But! I go to Gencon yearly and run D&D games, do some play-by-email, and dnd.meetup.com.

And I'm addicted to podcasts, especially Brilliant Gameologists.
