Hello. My name is Michael Bolton.
Long ago in the mid 1980’s a group of wargamers found themselves meeting up at tournaments across the country. The group developed a strong friendship and decided to attend future events as a group under the banner of the ‘Cold Steel Mercenaries’.
The 40K element of the Cold Steel Mercenaries now have chapters in the USA and representatives in France. They tend to keep in touch via the ‘Warhammer Forum’ and each have their own forum names – mine, for example, is ‘Grim’ although I seem to have acquired the soubriquet of ‘The Mitch’ as well!
This blog is to keep the group informed as to what each other are doing and to provide a window for the members to share their projects, stories, failures, and victories.
“You don’t stop playing because you get old. You get old because you stop playing”
The number of members ebb and flow but the 40K cadre includes the following.
Honarary Grey Beard
Steve Butler (Seldom seen – and yet everywhere)
Michael ‘the Mitch’ Bolton
