As I'm sure you know, there are many ways to get to know other loons on the inter webs who enjoying spending the family budget on little toy soldiers. Through blogging and the Oldhammer Forum i've met loads of like minded old farts but one of the most commonly used mediums is good old Facebook and in particular the groups. I'm a member of fair few but on that deserves a mention is the Emporium of Rogue Dreams which celebrates it's first birthday today.
The Emporium is a place where sci-fi oriented toy soldier fiends form around the planet get together and share their latest creations and lunatic ideas. No Fantasy, no trading. Just old school flavoured space war fun.
The emporium occasionally runs loose projects and what could be termed 'competitions' (my recent Abdul Goldberg being an example of challenge that finishes in May). If this sounds like your thing then have a quick perusal through the images below and if you are in anyway intrigued follow the link above and ask to join and see what you can contribute.
