Like many gamers, I started in miniatures by collecting figures from the biggest miniatures company out there. Their constant price-hikes took me out of the miniatures game as I no longer wanted to pay their prices. To get my miniatures fix, I would buy Board Games with figures in them and paint those minis. This treated me well for a while, but I was missing working on truly great miniatures. One year, with encouragement from my wife, I decided to go to Hotlead (an annual Miniatures convention in Stratford, Ontario, Canada). There, I came across demo games of all types and I suddenly realized that the big miniature manufacturers were not the only players out there. There are tons of options.
My eyes instantly opened and I bought into RAFM: USX Heroes, RAFM: Death in the Dark and Reaper Miniatures' Warlord Game at that convention. I consider my collections a revolving project, so I have sold off some of my collections to finance newer endeavors. I enjoy reading multiple rule sets and am constantly on the lookout for great ways to game at affordable prices. My readers will notice the theme of gaming on a budget in my Blog from time to time and I will make efforts to also help others game affordably.
