About Joshua Shoobridge

A man born and bred in Australia, brought up to appreciate all things geek. I have been a member of the media for a long time and now during a time in my life where I want to give back to a hobby that has given much to me. I have been a wargamer for sometime, starting in 40k and now being a indulger in many different periods and rule sets. Though I do not support war as an answer to worlds problems, reenacting the battle on the table top is great for the brain!
