I have been involved with miniature soldiers since I was four years old. For Christmas I received a Fort Apache play set. I was hooked from that moment on. I love all aspects of military history, but I am especially fond of the 18th and 19th centuries. I have painted up large armies for the Seven Years War, Jacobite Rebellion, American Revolution, and the American Civil War. I also have a nice collection of soldiers for the Battle for Empires.
