What's in a Name? What's Behind the Blog Handle?
With that said, the origins of Old School Terminator lay in a few purchases I made on Ebay ...
... a few years ago. I was selling minis on Ebay all the time and buying low priced or badly painted lots to strip and resell for a better price. For some reason I had always held onto the really old Space Marine Terminators like the Rogue Trader ones with the lightning bolts on the knees and chest, but one day, I won a lot of 67 of them. When I did a final count, I discovered I owned 121 Old School Terminators.
At that point, I decided to just get rid of them, since I had already collected all the plastic termies I would need for a Death Wing army. I put them up online at a rate of about 15 terminators a week, stretching out the lots to sell the torsos seperate from the arms in lots of five. About 5 weeks into selling them, I took a break. I got a panicked message from a guy who said, "Your the Old School Terminator guy right? Do you have anymore?" I loved it and changed my blog handle.
Well, I know that wasn't super exiting or even funny, for that matter, but since I told you ... what's the secret behind your blog handle? Is it too sercret to talk about? Your real name, lol? Or is there some hilarious reason for it? I am all ears.
