Inspiring People

It is a good feeling when something you do inspires others.  The main reason I blog is to document my thoughts and hobby activities as a way to track my progress and interests over time.  It is also to share what I do with like-minded people.

Five years ago I did a quick post on some scratch-built higgins boats that Tim and I were going to use for some 28mm WW2 beach assault games.  At the time we were planning an Italy campaign that was going to start with the Salerno landings.  For this we need landing craft. This post did not generate much interest and it really lacked much usable information.  It was basically some pictures of the unfinished models.

Fast forward 5 years and up pops this thread on The Miniatures Page.  Another gamer had found my old post and was inspired to build some landing craft based on my ideas.  It was really cool to see this!

Now I just wish I had put more effort into the original post...

It's always so rewarding when something like that happens. Then you realise, yes, someone, somewhere is reading and being inspired! It's a great feeling - awesome, Robert, and very well deserved!
