Contrary to popular belief, gamers have lives beyond the game table.
Just about everyone, gamer and non-gamer alike, has experienced loss. My friend Dean, writer of the popular WAB Corner, channeled the recent loss of one of his dogs, in a way that only he can--by painting a miniature memorial.
Most guys in our gaming group are excellent painters. What puts Dean ahead of the pack is that he's FAST!
Projects that take months--or longer--for everyone else, Dean can complete in a week.
Normally, Dean's blog is strictly about miniature wargaming, especially Warhammer Ancient Battles, or "WAB." However, just over a month ago, Dean reached out to his fellow gamers with his only non-gaming post to date.
A few days ago, Dean unveiled his Changun and Changun as a tribute his family, his heritage and his dog.
