Firstly, just a quick thanks to Paul and Sally for a superb product, service and commitment to the hobby. Having done the show circuit for many years as a punter, I find their consistent friendly and enthusiastic manner has always been a draw for me.
I am a lifelong board gamer, so the hex is an old friend, with my first board game purchased in 1977. Prior to that I was doing 1/300 micro scale armour. The marriage of figures and hexes has always seemed a natural thing to do as I love the sense of order that comes from the hex.
I am presently running a blog called Battlefields and Warriors, which specifically exists to highlight gaming in small spaces (not everyone has or can use a big table) and articles cover a mix of board gaming and figure gaming subjects.
Most recently, I have been doing a project based upon getting a figure wargame onto a large pinboard sized area (something just under 3' x 2') and this has morphed into using a 4" hexed small playing area. Hopefully the kind of games and rules used and blog posts that will fall out of that will interest visitors to this forum. I will post some blog links into the forum as they become appropriate to Kallistra products.
Having lurked here for a long time, I have enjoyed the passion and creativity behind the posts and look forward to being part of that and reading more about your games.

Thanks Sally, I hope to get some rules shared with everyone here.
