The box said "Warhammer + White Dwarf"

Hi All,

A quick one before the lad and I jet off to another track meet. Rochester NY last week, Aurora CO this week. If he places we have one more meet, but it's going to be tough. The competition is super fast and he doesn't usually run his best at elevation. I think the experience of making it to USATF Nationals and Junior Olympic Regionals has been good though.

Anyhow, I finally looked in a box that I had pulled from storage, prospecting for stuff that I believed I had, but hadn't seen in almost two decades.

The Mother Lode! Inside this box I found 123, 124, 130-132, 135-138, 140-144, 146-148, 152, 154, 155, 160, 162-169, 170-172, 174-179, 180-189, 190-199, 200-205, 207-211. Also a ton of Mail Order catalogs, advert inserts, painting guides and lists of retailers.

Also found this, I could never remember the game that Charlie and I played before I delved into Warhammer. I remember one massive battle we had on his living room floor with plastic army men.

Finally found my hard copy of Warhammer Armies. I knew I had one, just could never remember where it was. Inside were copies of army lists I had made for Bretonnians and some other lists I made for my friends I was trying to rope into the hobby.

I don't remember this poster at all.

I also found this one. So I'll have to get frames for them and hang them up in my Garage game room. When I get that set up.

Also inside were letters from my friend Charlie detailing his moves for our Mighty Empires campaign, more color xeroxes of my had colored map, and a bunch of notes on another "continent" I made using the Mighty Empires tiles.

It also shows how faulty my memory is. I seem to have been still getting White Dwarfs as late as 1996 and ordered stuff in 1995 for sure. Funny, I thought I had completely given up by 1993 at the latest.

Anyhow, I received some stuff to make a painting tray from Game Craft Miniatures. I'll let you know about it in a future post.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Lol you really need to inventory! Also I have a blog about horses I’d like you to add to your blog list. Hee hee hee 😜

    1. I do need to inventory. It just takes away from actually painting and gaming. Hmm, I'm concerned about your horse play website.

  2. Plenty of great reading there mate!

    1. Hi Millsy, honestly I wonder how many of those I actually read at the time.
