I have been playing role playing games and tabletop wargames for the better part of twenty five years. In that time, I would like to think that I have developed an eye for awesome. And that is what I want to bring to you.
The Golden D6 is a fanzine. Do you remember a time when hobby magazines were about the hobby and all the elements that make up playing, painting and collecting. The Golden D6 aims to cover all the wonderfully varied and amazingly diverse aspects of this incredible hobby of ours.
The hobby that we enjoy has so very many facets and it’s all out there for you to find.
We have been granted access to information unlike another time in history. Games of an infinite variety spring up like weeds in the information super highway, hoping to bloom into flower and spread.
And they’ve got the chance to.
In recent years, games like Warmachine, Malifaux, Forstgrave, Kings of War, Infinity and a plethora of others have sprung up. They gain a following and also have the vehicle to grow that following. It’s honestly fascinating. You can hardly swing a cat in Melbourne town without hitting some establishment or another that runs a board games night and wargaming clubs run regularly in your FLGS or independently.
Whilst forums have, to a greater or lesser degree, made way for social networks and blogging, there’s a LOT of cool stuff to have to sort through. Everything from converting Space Marines, painting techniques involving air brushes, zenithal spray techniques, game reviews and product launches. You can’t hope to read it all in a day, or even a week.
Ultimately, The Golden D6 has been created to capture and inspire tabletop wargamers’ imaginations.
I look forward to hearing from you.
