Back then there was no internet, no Digital Cameras! This was I think a Minolta SR101 with a close up lens.
My first painted figures were D&D figures followed quickly by GHQ micro Armor and exposure to Historical Wargaming. The Game below was my introduction to “Tank Charts” written by HMGS/PSW chapter founder Brian Stokes. Brian ran this game at one of the early Los Angeles Airport conventions. The trees were “nails” pounded into Plywood!
This is a one of my first efforts at doing terrain boards back it the 80’s. Ceiling tiles with paper mache hills, valleys, ridges, ect… all covered with fiberglass resin to help durability. Also some of my plane stands. Pretty common now, but ground breaking stuff back then when most folks were using old sheets and tape roads!
Back in the early 80’s we had a very active group of Micro Armor guys playing at the “Last Grenadier’s” in both Glendale and Reseda. I built the first sand table used at the Reseda Grenadier and later moved to the Glendale store.
I went on location with my job working on Magnum PI in Hawaii, There I met some local military guys who did Mustangs and Messerschmidt’s at Wheeler Air Force Base Library. To build my plane I bought my first airbrush there a Badger 200 that after several rebuilds is still serving me well today!
Some of first and fondly remembered games. This was I think “Shoot down the Fuhrer”
They were a great group, I’ve forgotten many
