Well considering that you are looking at site full of toy soldiers I think it’s fair to assume that at hart I’m a big kid who has never grown up. Although many years have passed since those endless summers as a kid. The ‘Terminator Tids’ name came from a friend ironically describing how well I play pool, which is not very well. It sort of lingered and when I needed a name for Twitter this wasn’t already taken and seemed to fit. Then when I decided to set up this site it just seemed appropriate. In the real world my name is Steve, but try getting that as domain name. I’m nearer to getting my bus pass than I am to having a student rail card and live in the North West of England enjoying a pint or two of real ale from time to time.

When it comes to hobbying I’ve been making models and playing games for years now. From a table top games point of view it all started with Games Workshop and in particular 40K. Over the last few years however me and GW have drifted apart for a number of reasons but mainly because there are so many other fantastic offerings out there.

I set the site up as a way of trying to share my passion and enthusiasm for this hobby of ours. It also acts as a bit of motivator for me when, like all of us I imagine, the enthusiasm lapses. Knowing I’ve made a commitment to do regular updates on here helps to spur me on. One thing I would like to point out is that I’m just a regular gamer so you’re not going to get galleries full of Crystal Brush entries or early notice of the next big thing that just around the corner. Unless I see them somewhere else and put a link on here.

My initial plan is to share with you what I have on my table each week. What I’m painting and what I’m playing. From a painting point of view I am going to try and do some guides about how I paint, what works for me and what I like. I will also have some galleries to share pictures of my model collection. If I can get into the groove of that then I’ll look to add other things as I go along.

If there is anything you would like to see on here then please drop me a line and I will see what I can do. In the mean time I hope you like you find and here and enjoy your hobby time.
