30 odd years ago when I was still a youngster I created a fanzine. It was called GLarg! and ran for 10 issues over a period of 4 or 5 years. It was loosely based around wargaming and RPGs but mostly it was just weird and stupid (but in a good way). It had articles written by my demonically possessed typewriter and VHS player, with titles like 'what the fuck is going on in V?' and 'The A-Team o.n.o.', cartoons like 'Fud the muscular chappy' and 'The adventures of Peter Greenaway'. Every issue had a choose your own adventure type story such as 'The flares of zarg' and 'Pass your driving test'. It was stupid and fun. In the last 30 years I passed my driving test, got a degree in Computer Science, got married, got a mortgage, had a couple of kids, became a database developer, broke a leg, got made redundant and had a nervous breakdown. So in 2017 I really started to ask myself what it was I wanted to do. I came to the conclusion that making the complete works of Tolkien in Lego animation was just too big an idea, so I wrote a screenplay for an animated lego sit-com called 'Pod #10179' and soon came to the conclusion that even that was just too big. So then I thought about GLarg! At first I thought of producing it in just a casual, amateur way, another fanzine. Then I thought about doing it as a serious venture. Over the next few months the idea just ran away with me completely and now I find myself with a model of an apatosaurus and an idea that fills me with such excitement that I dare not believe it until it becomes a reality. So now I find myself here, with you, wondering what will happen next... UPDATE 13/09/2018 So the magazine along with the apatosaurus are shelved for now and I find my project has evolved into the Modelling Miniatures series. Now what a lovely little diversion this is turning into, I have 20 books planned which I reckon will keep me busy for about 2 years. I'll only continue with these if there is demand but what little feedback I've received has been very positive. The apatosaur is not far off now with the Lizardmen Source Book being the next in the series after the Orcs & Goblins and the magazine (which I'm calling Day1) is just going to have to sit on the shelf for awhile longer. Day 1 is intended to be centred around miniature modelling and painting which was always my favourite part of the wargames hobby. The plan is to include models as part of the magazine kind of like a subscription box with a magazine included. This lead me to try and learn the art of modelling. I started with physical modelling and soon realised that digital modelling and 3D printing was the way forward for me, for so many reasons. So then I started to wade through the mire of information on 3D modelling and printing. At this point I realised that others could benefit from what I have learned and as a complete beginner I can offer a useful perspective to other complete beginners. This, through the help of Kickstarter, has become what we have here today, a Core Book and my first Source Book and first collection of models. I look at other models out there and I know I still have a way to go but I am massively proud of what I have produced so far. So I hope that some of you will back the Modelling Miniatures project and some day soon will be making your own great miniatures for fun or profit or preferably both! Thanks for watching! UPDATE 05/11/2018 So here we are at the next exciting instalment. I am so excited about this project, it really gives me a chance to play around building various bits of stuff. The advent calendar is a bit of a novelty but hey, who doesn't like a bit of novelty. I have priced this project real low in the hopes that I can attract some more backers, and I think you'll find it amazing value. Anyway, I shall keep it short and sweet this time because I am profoundly busy! Hope you decide to back me!
