News and Updates
Fri, Jul 8, 2022 - I added some pages with information on miniatures I've been building and painting for BattleTech.
Sat, Nov 30, 2019 - This holiday season we played a game with our old Battletech miniatures using the newer Alpha Strike rules. I used some simple materials to make the game table.
Thu, Jan 3, 2013 - Updated the page on the Renault R-35 now that I'm finishing up the design on that model. A beta build was done at the Paper Modelers forum. Hope to publish it there soon.
Wed, Oct 31, 2012 - A small update to the Crossfire section. Moved the unit lists into separate pages according to country.
Tue, Aug 21, 2012 - Added a page with the construction notes for a new type of t-trak compatible module.
Thu, Mar 24, 2011 - Added a conceptual railroad diagram and the track plan. Updated the river module page with pictures from the construction.
Mon, Dec 13, 2010 - Continuing to document my current foray into Model Railroading.
Fri, Jul 30, 2010 - This latest update is a diversion into the somewhat related hobby of model railroads. I've started documenting my project to build a modular layout in N scale. You will find that I'm using a lot of the same skills and techniques used in other projects on this site, so it should serve as an area of inspiration even if you are not interested specifically in trains.
Thu, Oct 29, 2009 - I just "published" a paper model of a WW2 Universal Carrier. The paper model is 1:72 scale and is mainly intended for wargame use. You can follow the design/build journal here.
Tue, Aug 18, 2009 - Added a battle report from our latest Crossfire game. The scenario pitted the French against the Germans in 1940.
Thu, Aug 6, 2009 - Added a bunch of new pictures recently. First a build thread for the paper Panzer III. Then a unit list for my new 1940 French forces. Then wrapped up with a new picture of the Panzer 38(t) on the vehicle page.
Fri, Jul 31, 2009 - Finished (mostly) a paper Panzer IV by ICM and documented the build with pictures.
Thu, Jul 16, 2009 - Wrote a new scenario for the France 1940 campaign that can be used in place of the Meuse crossing as a starting scenario. I mainly wrote it to use the French and German tanks that would not be so involved in the Meuse scenario (they hadn't crossed yet).
Mon, Jun 29, 2009 - Working on a WWII 1940 campaign, I have painted the first two platoons of French soldiers using figures from the Airfix box. Also added some notes about the paper tanks I've been building.
Tue, May 26, 2009 - After many years of going under the moniker "The Warmongers Convention" I have finally decided to give this web site a new name. The main reason behind the change is that I'm moving away from the free hosting at angelfire.com to a paid host and needed to come up with a new address. Most of the easy addresses having something to do with warmonger have been taken and so I started casting around for something else. Little Soldiers fit and is even more appropriate. While the pages are being renamed and moved around a bit, all the old content is still here.
Tue, May 19, 2009 - Posted pictures and summaries about the 1:72 scale vehicles I've built for WWII games.
Wed, Apr 8, 2009 - Added two after action reports from the around-the-world Crossfire event.
Mon, Feb 9, 2009 - Added a battle report for a Crossfire scenario. Reworked the main menu on the index page and added additional pages for specific genres.
Tue, Jan 13, 2009 - Added an article about building a German 88mm Flak from scratch.
Mon, Jan 5, 2009 - I have add a few of my own Crossfire scenarios as I play more of that game.
Tue, Nov 4, 2008 - Added a battle report from this summer of a Zulu War game featured at the local gaming club.
Mon, Sep 22, 2008 - Working on two related projects: Crossfire WW2, and Cold War using the Crossfire rules for a 1980's based alternate history campaign. Both are using 20mm plastic figures and I've written about some conversions that I've been doing with the figures.
Wed, Apr 9, 2008 - Started work on a entrance into the dungeon project to be the start for a new scenario.
Mon, Jan 14, 2008 - Pictures and a description of the new throne room (or "boss lair") was added to the dungeon project.
Mon, Oct 1, 2007 - Minor update to the site. Fixed links, picture captions, etc. Created a set of templates so now everything should look the same.
Thu, Sep 13, 2007 - Added another page in to the fantasy dungeon project about making the well tile.
Wed, Aug 8, 2007 - Added a very short review of Dungeonation on the rules page.

Fri, Sep 13, 2002 - I've added a new section to the Battle Reports page: a campaign section. The first campaign to be listed is Lagardan, covering an Human-vs-Technoid battle for oil fields on that colony world.
Mon, Aug 26, 2002 - After being listed on The Miniatures Page as a featured terrain site (woo hoo :), angelfire.com usage. :-( Well since the Inspiration Pictures are nothing but graphics and probably are the root of the problem, I the number of pictures I have in that section. So don't bother trying to find the pictures, the entire directory has been deleted and will remain so until further notice.

Mon, Feb 26, 2001 - Added the Retreat From Riverbase 1 Battle Report.
Fri, Feb 16, 2001 - After two years of inactivity I have redone the entire site and have plans for some major updates with actual photographs (!). Also during this period I have purchased Dirtside II from Ground Zero Games and so the sight will now reflect a major bias toward that game (instead of BattleTech by FASA).
Wed, Feb 10, 1999 - Added Homemade Alternatives to Flock to the Tips page.
