About Me

Welcome to my little hobby filled corner of the internet!

My name is Haydn but I browse the various online forums and platforms under the pseudonym of haychdee. I’m a UK based gamer, painter, sculptor and lover of all things creative.

I’ve been into wargaming for just about 15 years and over that time I’ve puttered with various systems like 40K, Secrets of the Third Reich and LotR but it’s Malifaux that really sparked my love for skirmish games.  And as much as I enjoy the card flipping and dice rolling, for me the most enjoyable aspect of the hobby will always be the modelling.

I’ve been a dedicated painter and amateur sculptor for the last 10 years but being constantly inspired by the amazing talent in the hobby I’m always trying to push my skills that little bit further. Over the last few years I’ve found myself branching out into competitive painting and plan to continue developing my brush work whenever I can. Sculpting has become somewhat of a passion for me and whilst I currently just dabble with small scale conversion work I hope to make the move into crafting my own sculpts in the future.

I decided to throw this site together in order to share my work and musings with you wonderful people and to help keep me focused. As I develop my various crews and forces I’d like to take the time to discus my thought processes and share a few of my personal modelling tips. And lastly I’d like to discus a few thoughts on the wargaming community as well as the inevitable random reveries that pop into my head. I hope you enjoy the site and your comments or questions are always welcomed.

Happy Hobbying!
