Hi everyone (anyone?) and welcome to my blog and first post. I thought I’d start by giving a little bit of background of how I’ve ended up writing this in the first place and getting into Zombie wargaming – a bit dry I know but hopefully future posts will be better.
|Sarissa City Block Residential|
In July 2011 I decided to resume my wargaming interests after a lull of three to five years and started again on my 1920’s gangster project by looking around for suitable buildings. I came across the fine range of buildings by Sarissa ( http://www.sarissa-precision.co.uk/store/cityblock28/) and ordered one straight away.
About a week after it had arrived I was admitted into hospital, August 2011, since when I have been in and out of hospital on a regular basis. During my time in hospital I was still looking for suitable additions to my 1920’s buildings and came across the website “Vampifan’s World of the Undead”, via Zombietown (http://www.skankgame.com/zombietown.html}, a great site.
With more time on my hands than I knew what to do with whilst in hospital, I read through Vampifan’s entire site from his very first posts in March 2009 to the present. To my delight he used the “Two Hour Wargaming Rules”; I too was going to use the Gangster supplement from these rules for my gangster games and I was unaware that there was a Zombie supplement. It wasn’t long after going through Vampifan’s site that I contacted Vampifan by email, though what my drug-induced missives looked like then I dread to think!
The rest they say is history, I was infected by the Zombie bug, I planned my project all the time I was in hospital, what figures I would buy, what buildings I would make what rules I would use and a myriad of other things. I haven’t forgotten my gangsters though and I still have an eye out to add to their number.
There isn’t a community on the web that I’ve come across that is as friendly or as supportive of each other as the Zombie Wargaming community and its great to be a part of it.
