About me, Age of Miniatures and getting in touch
Who am I
- I play Age of Sigmar! I am a hobbyist first and a gamer second.
- I have too many hobbies besides AoS (D&D, 40K, board games, video games and reading lore to every universe I get stuck in).
- Badly hidden away from my special someone, I have a lot of unpainted miniatures (a billion greenskinz, some old Empire, a wood elf army I have never done anything about and a million Reaper Bones!).
- I never feel like I have enough hobby time. Like many I hobby procrastinate like nobody's business (but I try not to).
- I have studied philosophy for 6 years at Aarhus University. This has given me the ability to research huge amounts of information and distil the relevant parts (most of the time in a somewhat understandable way).
Why did I create this Age of Sigmar blog?
I started out like most Warhammer: Fantasy players. Mainly I was bummed about Age of Sigmar (they did kill the Old World and the game I had loved since I was twelve). But I was also very curious and ready for something new.
I bought the first big lore book (Age of Sigmar) and read it. My feelings were mixed, to say the least. I tried to browse different forums and facebook groups, but things were mainly negative. The hobby was on standby for a good half a year for me, where every single miniature was packed away because I did not have the stomach to think about the game.
At some point, I decided to give it another go. Most of the very toxic players had left the community and the interwebs were now free to discuss AoS without all the haters.
But the content was lacking!
The only problem was: information was hard to come by. In many ways, this is still a very hard hobby to get into for new players.
That is why I decided to write some of the stuff down that I spend so much time researching for myself.
What came of it is the website you see now. The mission is still the same, but the scope is bigger: make quality content available regarding games with miniatures.
How to support Age of Miniatures?
I use a variety of methods to provide enough finances to run and support the site. This means keeping the site in the air but also keeping new content flowing.
Do remember: if something is free, it is very likely that you are in some way the product. This is also the case here, but I make sure that it happens in a way that is clear and that I would accept as a consumer myself.
If you like what I do and want to support the site, you can do the following things:
- Press on one of my links and purchase your hobby products from that site. I will earn a small cut from the website (but it will cost you nothing). This is called affiliate linking.
- Join my email list
- Stop blocking the ads. I get it, I use add blockers myself see no harm.
