Welcome to Uxoman's gaming site
Here you'll discover everything about my main hobby,
gaming. Both wargaming in all its incarnations, an old passion that
started about sixteen years ago, and the more recent console gaming.

Not a whole lot of gaming going on today. Between clearing the garden
sheds, preparing the lawn for coming spring, doing the laundry and
other chores around the house there aren't enough hours left in the day
to do much gaming. I did manage to get around to getting my gamesroom
organized. I recently moved from a small one bedroom flat to a rather
large house (with garden and own forest) and I now have the luxury of
being able to set up a gamesroom and a painting room! At last, all the
place I ever dreamt about to store my collection of boardgames and
miniatures. Of course I now have to spend more time on housekeeping,
you can't have it all.
Now I can start to organize my collection and make an inventory as
well. In the end you'll be able to check it out on this site. A passing
tribute to my "Unpainted Lead (and plastic, resin, plaster,...)
The last few weeks I have been busy with two things: playing Steel
Battalion on my Xbox and getting Battlefield Gothic out again. I bought
it more than two years ago when I was in England and put the ships
together. And after that I put on a shelf. Recently my interest was
rekindled, quickly jumping to one of my gaming buds. I'm looking out ot
get a copy of the rules for him on eBay and have started painting up
some of the ships.

Still organizing my collection, but the end is in sight. Tomorrow I
have to start very early, so not a lot else will be done. Just checking
a couple of the Galaxy games I'm playing in, the first turn reports for
the week are coming in. The first one wasn't looking good, I lost one
of the handfull of planets I have. An early raid left me lagging behind
in the production war. One of the other games is the final stage, with
me on top. The final assault will be launched this turn.
I did manage to start building a model of a BM-8-24 (WW2 era Russian
rocket launcher on a light tank chassis) that I want to use with my
WH40K Imperial Guard. The Russian instructions wouldn't be that bad, if
only the drawing would be a bit clearer. Well, at less than 15 Euro it
sure beats GW prices.
