Though a fan of the game since purchasing Battledroids many moons ago, Mike has only recently started seriously painting. With the talent level of the painters in his local area, he quickly grew weary of having the ugliest minis on table and was forced to evolve or perish. When not painting miniature machines of death, Mike usually prefers a more hands-on approach through the world of video games. Whether dominating the world (a la Civ3), or just experiencing the simple joy of pistol-whipping good friends at a LAN party (a la Halo), he can often be found in front of the computer or one of the various consoles. He also hopes to someday see his once-proud sports franchises return to glory.
