What is Battles in Middle Earth? – This site has two goals to educate and entertain you with content about Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game/Hobbit Strategy Battle Game/Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game content by Games Workshop. Additionally, I use it to show off my hobby work, battle reports, and anything else that I think is cool
Who am I? – I am a guy living in Chicago in his 30’s who enjoys painting, making terrain, and playing the different forms of MESBG. Inspired by some incredible hobbyists out there, I have been working towards painting up and playing some campaigns in the MESBG system. I try my best to paint and create terrain that looks as good as it can in a reasonable amount of time. My hope is that inspires others to take up this hobby and achieve whatever goals excite them.
A technical writer by trade, I also love to write so having a website is a natural fit in that regard. My hobbies include miniature wargaming, reading graphic novels, literature, and history books, playing video games (especially Nintendo and RPG’s), and collecting Star Wars and Marvel Non-Sport cards (it fills a collecting itch for an old Magic and Pokemon player!).
If you’d like to know a bit more about my hobby history, I’d encourage you to check out: My Painting/Gaming History.
