I’m a guy who loves 1/285th scale micro armor, and I love to show off what I’m working on … the good, the bad and the ugly.
Most of my collection is GHQ. Many pieces are modified, and some are scratch built.
I started gaming with Micro Armor in the late 1970s with my friends in Southern California on a sand table in my friend Robert’s back yard. I built a pretty impressive collection (for a kid) of 1/285th scale modern armor and aircraft; much of it heavily modified and even some pieces were scratch built. With my friends, I built a collection of terrain boards and took them to the local Southern California game conventions and ran some fairly impressive modern games that lasted days at a time.
30 years later, I’m still crazy about micro armor and continuing to build my collection. Some guys love to brag about how many pieces they have (and some of the numbers will blow your mind), but I’m not too concerned about that, I’m more about what pieces I have and what they look like. Sure, I do have a lot of pieces (not even sure how many), but my obsession is detailing the pieces and finishing them well.

A city board, circa 1980
This was probably taken in 1980 at the Anahiem Sheraton hotel (Orccon? Gateway?).
This was a micro armor game I was running on the boards that I built at a young man.
If you know any of these people please let me know.
