I discoverd TableTop Gaming in a very unusual way. While I was building a maquette for our house in 2003! I kind of stumbled upon the BGME from Deagostini and was sold on the spot.I began collecting and painting and playing in Hasselt. But life, building my own house ,work and my other hobbies put the things on a very low priority for about 6 years.
With the release of War of the Ring I started painting and collecting again.
But it was in 2011 - when a mutual friend introduced me to Werner Kellens - the hobby really grew. By playing & painting together, discussing 'trivial' things as colour picking or painting techniques, we discovered a mutual passion for 'little metal men', as they are often called.
Since 2011, our hobby (and my collection) grew and grew to about a staggering 1500 miniatures today, of which I still have to paint about 80% ;-). Today, I became more of a painter than a player.

I started getting interested by the deagostini magazine and since then it has become my main hobby. I'm a big 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit' fan. The most of this hobby I like is the painting and playing scenario's (or point battles with fluff armies). And of course this Fellowship!

I started playing & painting a Warhammer Fantasy dwarf army around 2000 but they've been joined by many other armies (or single miniatures I liked) including 2 Lord of the Rings teams (Isengard & Rohan). Painting and scenery is my main focus the past few years but I still try to play a game sometimes.

I started playing back in 2003 with the return of the king starter set. I got the set for my eleventh birthday. After three year I quit the hobby, to rediscover it in 2012, just before the Hobbit came out. I love to collect, paint en play the game. Minas Tirith along with the Fiefdoms are my favorite armies and my main goal is to collect at least one of every lotr miniature ever produced.

Love the collecting and gaming. Painting not so much!

How should i start? I'm a member of the Fellowship that loves to paint but also loves to play the game. My painting is not quite as good as some of the other members but i like to try out new colours for models. I'm a bit controversial on this but i like to get creative with this.

A Very open minded person, who is prepared to meet new people, having a great time, collecting armies, talking about tolkien lore and LOTR & Hobbit movies, Also somebody who doenst like to paint ( considering that his partner does that for him ), and somebody who is always in search for something new ( that he offers out of his own or brought up by other members).

After years of hesitating, I finally made the jump to get involved in this game in 2015. So I am but a beginner trying to make his way trough this beautiful game, mastering the different aspects en strategies this game has to offer. Favorite faction? I don't know yet, but I am particularly fond of Dwarves because of Tolkien's lore. Baruk Khazad! Khazad ai-menu!

There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And I do not share power.
