Introducing Myself

Post by mshoemaker » Mon Mar 21, 2016 6:21 pm

Hi all,

I just found out about this group while I was demoing Dropzone Commander at Redcap's this past Sunday. Dropzone is a game I am hoping to get a league or such going for in the area but I'll put a post up about that in the miniature section. My name is Matt Shoemaker and I've been playing RPGs since I was about 8 and wargames since I was 12. I moved out to Philly about 6 years ago from Wisconsin and for whatever reason had bad luck finding other gamers out here beyond a couple small groups I participate in.

For wargames, I tend to do a lot more painting than playing lately. I've been really into 10mm this year and been building up several armies for Lord of the Rings games using Warmaster rules. I've also taken quite a liking to Dropzone Commander. I have minis for several other games and painted up 3 Blood Bowl teams last month. The game I was most competitive in was the GW's Lord of the Rings SBG, which was big in Milwaukee, but I have barely touched it the past few years. You can see some of the stuff I've painted up over the past year here:

For RPGs I am currently playing mostly D&D 5e and I am running sessions of it at Redcap's on Baltimore on Wednesday evenings. I have a large RPG collection and like to play a variety of games, and am also currently involved in a documentary on a history of Dungeons and Dragons as a co-producer.

Nice to meet you all!
