You gotta begin somewhere, sometimes

My hobby is miniature wargaming. In other words, I play with toy soldiers.
Or, in the immortal words of H.G. Wells, I play "a Game for Boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty, and
for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games, and books."
I have been thinking to work on a website for quite some time. It will be a wonderful opportunity to keep track of my own hobby projects, and to share them with friends and like-minded people. Alas, the website has not happened yet, for a variety of concurring reasons, ranging from my technological illiteracy, to the lack of written contents to fill my little corner of cyberspace.
Hence, the idea of the blog, hoping, one day, to transfer these contents to a permanent home.
The blog itself could have come much sooner, but for the lack of a digital camera. Let's face it: with no "eye candies", nobody is going to keep reading my musings.
That final hurdle was finally resolved yesterday. I now have a digital camera. A Blogger account. And thousands of miniatures that are about to enjoy the spotlight.

DISCLAIMER - English is not my native language. Bear with my grammar and syntax.

Hello There,

Jeff Huddelson sent me a link to your blog, and it's very interesting. You are off to a good start, and your English is quite good. Have you made any progress with those 18th century Prussians? What is your Napoleonic collection like? Might you share any photographs of it here?
I'll visit occasionally to see what you are up to. Happy blogging!

Best Regards,

Stokes Schwartz
