Hi all.

After about 15 years, I'm stepping down as a moderator and site admin for WargamerAU today. That's turned out to be a far longer tour than I originally thought I was signing on for, back when Stan first approached me about helping with the site wink.gif

Krefey and the rest of the team will continue running the place, so it's all business as usual on that front. You'll still see me around on the site, hopefully posting a bit more instead of living backstage in the admin panel. Hobby time has been extremely scarce for the last year, but I'm planning to take some of my old forum-admin time and use it for painting instead.

Just need 8th Ed 40k to finally drop, so I can work out what to paint first smile.gif

Thanks very much morsla. Always been an excellent member of the community and a fantastic admin and mod. Hope that your newfound painting time brings you joy.

BTW all of the 40k books have leaked so you can paint whatever you like wink.gif

Thank you for your time and dedication as mod, Morsla. An often thankless job, but you've always been a level-minded voice of reason and fairness. Enjoy your hobby desk time smile.gif

Delete the MWM forum as your last mod action plz


--------------------
I like to use the fictional victories of fictional empires as a proxy for personal worth. Did you see this story about how space marines killed some orks one time? I own space Marines so that makes me better than you :)

If you're unconvinced I have some more stories. Happy to do a story-off any time. Official fictional stories only please. No made up fictional stories.

Heya Morsla,

Not that it means much coming from a part time participant like myself.

But thanks to you and the rest of the crew that makes and maintains a home for hobbyist here.
Years ago when I picked up dice and brushes again this was a great place and crowd to have found.

Wouldn't be a thing without work that goes on behind the scenes.
