As of today, this Blog has been active for four months and in that time, this site has received over 37,900 pageviews. That is fantastic!!!
One great thing about having this Blog is that I get interactions with game publishers that I wouldn’t necessarily receive if it were not for the articles that I write. Early on, I got to interact with Jey Legarie from Dungeon Crawler™. A number of interesting articles came out of those interactions including an interview with Jey and an article where I got to take pictures of unreleased miniatures posed with my own models for scale. That was really cool and an experience that I reflect upon very positively.
This month was especially exciting for me as I have had a number of interactions with miniature gaming companies. The highlight for me would be having made contact with both Warlord Games and Osprey Games. Although I haven’t heard back from Warlord, Osprey Publishing effectively became my first sponsor for content by sending me a copy of Konflikt ’47 for review purposes. I am extremely excited to have received this book from Osprey and have now written a few articles about Konflikt ’47. These articles include…
- Konflikt ’47 – It Arrived!!!
- Growing Excitement – Bolt Action 2 and Konflikt ’47
- Konflikt ’47 – German Lists
Future articles planned for Konflikt ’47 include looking at army lists from the other three nations, some battle reports and a review of the book itself.

Aside from connecting with Osprey and Warlord, I received some positive feedback from Andrea Sfiligoi, the Author of A Fistful of Kung Fu and the Song of Blades and Heroes games available through Ganesha Games. To me, it was very exciting to see the Author of the game I am writing about commenting on my Facebook posts and giving me “Likes.” Personally, I really enjoy the gaming system in A Fistful of Kung Fu and hope to get a future copy of Rouge Stars (set to be published in December) to read through and review. Articles about A Fistful of Kung Fu that I wrote include…
Through Facebook, I learned about the current Kickstarter that Andrea is involved with for Axe and Brimstone, an expansion to A Song of Blades and Heroes. I liked the system in A Fistful of Kung Fu so much (and know that A Song of Blades and Heroes runs off the same gaming engine) that I wrote a post about the Axe and Brimstone campaign.
Earlier in the past month, I attended the Gaming Convention Broadsword 2 in Hamilton. There, I chatted at length to Lee from RAFM miniatures and Brad from Six Squared Studios. In my posts, I make it no mystery that I am a fan of both companies. They both make great products at fairly reasonable prices. From Broadsword 2, I wrote a battle report of a game ran by Six Squared Studios. That report of How the West Was Eaten happened to be my most popular post of the Month.
Overall, it has been a very enjoyable month and I am happy of the accomplishments of this website. As a quick aside, my copy of Band of Brothers came into my FLGS today. 🙂
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!
