Meet Pulp Action Library
Howard WhitehouseI'm Howard Whitehouse. I've been a wargamer and toy soldierist since the dawn of time, or around 1970, when I was twelve. I've written quite a lot of wargame rules, some of which I am proud of, and some which --- well, I was twelve. I've written two books of actual history and published four novels for discerning young persons, which involve history in a fairly muddled fashion.
I've worked in and around what passes for the wargames industry (guffaw!) for twenty-five years, making things, writing things, painting things and selling things. My present role - aside from being twin grand poohbar at Pulp Action Library - is as creative director/assistant sub-janitor for Defiance Games.
I have a regular Facebook page, where you can find me sharing pictures of cats and discussing harmonicas, just like everyone else.
Roderick RobertsonI've been hanging around the RPG side of the industry for the most part - I started playing RPGs in the 70's, writing for RPGs in 1990, and editing in '99. Since then I've edited, written or laid-out lots of products for lots of companies, and run two different product lines for two different companies.
I've always liked minis, since my Dad bought me somew Elastolin Romans 'way back for my 4th or 5th Christmas. I played with 25's, 28's, Heroic 28's, 40's, "Major Matt Mason" (remember him?), and GI Joe (the original 12" action figures, not the mid-70's 4"). I bought my first "real" minis ruleset (WRG 5th) back in '78 or '79. I currently work in 25-28mm, mostly Fantasy.
I've fiddled around with writing rules since some time in the '80's, and have written (and rejected) four or five different sets, learning from each as I went.
I even have my own Facebook page, where I don't say much of anything, not really being "into" this Facebook nonsense.
