Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

Hang on...

...so I was catching up on my reading, and read this over at Cheaphammer:

It's been a combination of having a lot on in terms of work (lots of marking and meetings) 
and then something I saw at the Lead Pile (making a gaming mat while his Sixth Formers got on with their projects - and oh, how I wish I was still working in a practical workshop and could do that). And it's moved me to ask - how many of us are teachers? Including the Talented Mr Awdry over at 28mm Victorian Warfare that makes 3 out of the 20 or so blogs I follow: statistical fluke or is wargaming something that especially appeals to the kind of people that go into teaching?

Enquiring minds want to know. Tell us in the comments.

  1. I'm in software development myself, but it does sound like quite a few of the wargame/hobby bloggers I read are or were in teaching professions.

    1. The guys I used to game with went into programming and networks respectively. Possibly another statistically significant group?

  2. I clocked that and gave a wry smile. I know of one more, Mark Hargreaves over at http://over-open-sights.blogspot.co.uk - seriously talented chap.
