I am the owner of the the blog https://notbystrengthbyguile.wordpress.com and I am the "Editor" of the Badly Painted Minis website, a lofty title that I will absolutely let go to my head. I play Imperial Guard in 40k, and play almost any game that piques my interest that I run into, and proceed to paint them poorly and play badly. Enjoy!
