I've also entered the latest terrain competition that The AtDE facebook group is running. Two rules for the competition - 1. The base can be no bigger than a CD.
2. Minimal purchased bits. Must be mostly scratch built. Looking forward to this. I've got a couple ideas, to the point of possibly entering 2-3 pieces.
The real reason I'm posting today is because I'm curious...I was listening to an old episode of the View From the Veranda podcast (w/Neil Schuck and Henry Hyde) and they were talking about inspiration for wargaming. Which got me thinking of a couple questions for you all. (Call me rather weird, but I do consider my followers as cyber friends, hence I'm curious, and be advised, if you're ever in the Kansas City area, shoot me a message and we can try to have a game!)
So the questions - 1. What started you into wargaming, or board gaming?
2. What inspires you to wargame or pick up a new period/genre?
I look forward to reading your replies.
