Hi from Durban, South Africa
« on: February 26, 2013, 12:43:14 PM »
Hi all

I've been wargaming since the early eighties, play 40k when I can but spend almost all my free time building scenery, terrain and scratch building.

I've lurked here for a while and have finally registered.

See you in the forum!

Cheers
Neal

Hello Neal, and welcome to the forum.   It is a friendly place, and I think you will enjoy it here.  I think a lot of us would be interested in seeing some of your buildings and terrain.

See you on the baords,

-Michael

Hi Neal!
Welcome to the forum. I would live to see your terrain so I can get more ideas for how to do mine.

Hi Neal, I recently read Ia book written by a guy who said he had lived in all the great cities;  Paris, London, Vienna, New York, San Francisco and Durban, SA.  I don't think my hometown made the list.   C'ya, Charles

Welcome.
You came to the right place. Lovely stuff you got there.
I felt compelled to order some of those containers  :D

I confess when I saw your avatar name I wondered if you had updated Scissors Paper Rock for the 21st century  lol

Ah, that would be rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock    8)

If I may offer some advice from Oscar Wilde:

"The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself, with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful."

Welcome!

So what is the gaming scene like in South Africa?  Don't see many folks from SA on the various gaming forums (fora?),

@AzSteven: Underdeveloped, I would say.

There is only a sustainable gaming scene in the bigger cities.

Where I am (Cape Town) there are a couple of small but active historical clubs and a couple of bigger fantasy/sci-fi clubs spread over the metropole, and 4 or 5 gaming stores selling mostly GW. You can get a game of WFB, 40K or Warmahordes without a problem at any club night or store. Historicals take a bit more effort.
