My name is Michael Murphy.
I live in North Central Indiana, and have been a miniature wargaming enthusiast since the mid-late 1970’s thanks to an episode of “On The Road” with the late Charles Kuralt doing a bit on a wargaming club in California way back then, as well as getting my first boxes of Airfix soldiers, and a copy of HG Wells, Little Wars. My hobby is wonderfully support by my wonderful wife (Gawd bless her!).
Currently I attend or attempt to attend Little Wars, Gen Con, Advance The Colors, Origins, and The Seven Years War Con.
My miniature focus is on 15mm and 28mm figures, in the following genres; Western, Pulp, Horror, Victorian, Colonial, some WWII, Interwar, 18th Century, (Some AWI), Gangsters, Pirates, and Fantasy. For 15mm it is ACW, and Modern.
I am the original designer of Gutshot, (published by Hawgleg Publishing), and a winner of the 2006 GAMA award for Best Historical Miniatures of The Year.
I am also the creator of the (in)famous campaign imagi-nation of “Bongolesia”.
I am also a member (at large) of The Las Vegas Wargamers, and a member of HMGS Midwest.
I look forward to seeing everyone and the discussions on this forum!
Have a great day!
Welcome, Michael! We’re glad to have you joining us on the forum.
And for everyone else, Michael is also the wonderful writer behind the acclaimed “You Want It When?” two-part editorial. If you haven’t caught it yet, it starts in Issue 101 and discusses the complexities of shipping miniatures that many vendors are facing now.
Thanks for the introduction, Michael! We look forward to seeing you around the board.
