hello, my name is Greg. i am a husband ,father of 4 and grandpa already of 3 girls and one boy, who is  in the picture.. I love my family and enjoy spending time with them. The reason for this gofundme page is as follows.!

I have always enjoyed being creative and making things, spent most my life in construction untill an injury now has me at a desk job part time.

I have been an avid tabletop gamer who love miniatures and gaming with them. creating and painting have always been enjoyable to me.

My passion has led me to make some items by hand , then mold them, and finally cast them out of resin. As i got to doing this,  i did Lots of research , and have spent hours learning  to see if it was possible to supplement my income while doing something i enjoy, and that others would also enjoy using. 

Being part time at work, and no supplemental income, makes it almost impossible to survive, much less have anytime or ability to enjoy life.
With that said, i decided i am going to start my own handmade miniature items and need some things that i honestly just can not afford at this time.

3Dprinter .     this printer would allow me the ability to create miniatures of vary height while being far below the cost of commercial 3 d printers. its $499.00 + shipping ,and the filament to make objects for this is found here, click to see filament  runs per spool, would need several to start at approximately $100.00.

To run the newer 3d programs, i also need a laptop that would do the job, again i have spent time to research the most cost effective one, as many range in the thousands and this one is only $400.00
click to see laptop . And will do fine.

here is a small wood pile i made with clay, wood, let dry then molded and cast with resin-the result was a paintable plastic version you see to left of picture and on right , a finished one,painted,flocked and some brush added---this is 15mm gaming size
29333146_15244333820_r.jpeghere is a log wall that i made out of  wood  and i hand  mad the sand bags out of clay and stacked them together, to make a wall with sand bags ww2 era as thats something that is big in tabletop gaming . Like the other ones, have to make by hand then make a mold of it then resin cast it for final product. seen at bottom of photo
29333146_15244343830_r.jpegthis one is a hand made water well, made out of clay and cut the pieces and wire for the well, this clay was then baked and cooled ,then painted and decorated , filled with  plastic liquid water. and stone path hand painted. works for any table top game or garden or display. 

thank you for taking the time to look and any help is greatly apreciated .

P.S.  take the time to game with your family and friends, as to many dont spend anytime with each other at all these days, and each day is one to be shared.

Best regards-Greg
