Greetings from Wellington in New Zealand. I am an Australian, living in New Zealand since 1988 - but no, I'm not part of the witness protection program. It's just a cool country (even before LotR). I'm a keen player of boardgames and miniature wargames - but not the really complex ones as I'm more into relaxing "fun" playing than huge rulebooks, intricate results tables, tape-measures or games that take days to play. I'm also into astronomy, fossils (palaeontology), sci-fi books and movies. By way of an occupation, I am a lawyer, now working for a government department as a senior manager - no wonder I play games quite a lot ...!
I'm particularly keen on sci-fi miniatures wargaming (again, of the very simple type, rather than WH40K). A group of us used to play "Space Crusade" (an old MB/GW collaboration) a lot, and our own table top variation, called "Imperium Battles". If you don't know much about 'Space Crusade' (but want to), or are interested in our 'Imperium Battles' games, go to the General Freyberg's Battle Group website (at http://www.imperiumbattles.com
- but I'm afraid I haven't updated it for ever ...). I liked playing da Orks best (they don't like nuffink complikated eitha), but have also been known to play the Imperial Fists, Tyranids, and Necrons (but not at the same time ...).
