Victory Points almost open for business

I’ve been busy getting things ready for the new website. Right now the only thing that isn’t ready to go are the Forums. I am using Disqus to moderate the comments and I am hopeful they will eventually add forums. I would hate to have members work with two different membership systems. It is too much work to “invent my own” so I am dependent upon a third party solution. I’ve also been working to weed out spammers who seem to really love attacking Word Press sites.

I’ve already started to put content up. I need an RPG editor. I’d like to have other secondary editors as well. I’ve taken the mantle of Wargames Editor since that is 90% of my gaming anyway. If anyone is interested in being an editor (which consists of blogging, completing gaming projects and documenting them in photos and essays) then contact me here.

Lately my interests have swung to WH40K, HOTT, DBA for primary play and various boardgames for intermittent play. I have at least two boardgames I’ve gotten this year that I would LOVE to play if I can find opponents.

Once Victory Points is up this site will become inactive. It will be redundant. You can sign up for the Victory Points RSS feed instead!

So far things are progressing nicely on the site. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Games Workshop / Tau pages added

From Tau

I am starting to fill out the site with the projects I have completed or am presently working on. The Tau army is my first foray back into 40K in a long time. I plan on adding lots of other things under the Games Workshop banner such as my love of Legends of the Old West. I am also getting Space Hulk this weekend so watch for that.

Check out the Tau Page

My dream is to get all of my projects cleaned up, photographed, written up and shared with you in the gaming community. I’ve had a lot of fun over the last 19 years of wargaming and while I have a lot of projects that never saw completion I do have many more that did. This site is also inspiring me to complete half-done past projects. It is amazing how many out of print miniatures I’ve found in my collection. Some have been sold on EBay to pay for this site. Others await new life. For example my original 1980’s Fimir from Games Workshop will end up in a HOTT army!

We still haven’t announced the Grand Opening of Victory Points yet so if you have come here via a google search – welcome! The site is underconstruction but I am aiming for an October 2009 grand opening!
