Brant Guillory - Game Commando, BayonetGames

Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
I'm Brant, the wargame-design half of BayonetGames and contractor with Harnessed Electrons. Currently in Raleigh, NC, but with regular jaunts to Columbus, OH, and Monterey, CA. I love modern-era gaming, prefer face-to-face over the tabletop to any kind of digital gaming.
Your favorite game(s):
Warfighter series; SPI's Modern Battles quads; Lock'n'Load; World at War; Next Wars; 7 Wonders and Dominion with my 8-year-old son
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
7 Wonders; Dominion; Manouevre; Loving me some Tank on Tank from LnL lately
What game(s) have you played recently?
7 Wonders! (fantastic little game); Jamaica
Wargames: Warfighter series (Asian Thunder & World of Conflict), Next Wars I: Orange Crush, World at War series from LnL.
Non-Wargames: Carcassonne: the Castle; London; Ticket to Ride...
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Not enough!
How big is your game collection?
Wargames: 65 or so (after the last thinning for space); Eurogames: 20-25; RPG products: 200+ or so; and a whole lot of minis and random CCGs
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
Raleigh, NC (Triangle area); frequent trips to Columbus (CABS)... no local club around Raleigh, yet - hoping to start one soon
About Me
14 years in the military (split active/nat'l guard); 21 years as Army brat; work for a defense contractor doing wargame/software design and some training management; I run GrogNews.com and write for Battles! and a few others; love games with buckets of dice, and tho I can't stand the game, I have a fondness for the collectible D&D minis; I love finding neat games from small unknown publishers (Dark City, Fiery Dragon, etc)
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Favorite Movies: Ronin; Ocean's 11 (2001); Farewell to the King; Hi-Fidelity; Singles
Favorite TV Shows: Big Bang Theory; How I Met Your Mother; That 70s Show (been catching up on DVDs); seriously wishing there was a way to revive Studio 60
Favorite Sports: Soccer (USMNT, Newcastle United, Columbus Crew); College Football (NC State, South Carolina, LSU); Baseball (Astros); NHL (Hurricanes)

I dig hiking and biking outside with my son, and flat-water kayaking when the weather's nice. I like traveling and checking out historical locations (Stirling, Scotland is a great under-rated historical destination). My wife is a fantastic photographer, so we usually get postcard-quality pictures out of our trips, too.

"So roughly 50 people in NC, 3 in southern VA, 7 far away. I have not heard from any of the triad people about what they wish to do. In the past 5 years I've played with 10-15 of the 50."

"Very nice and obviously all inclusive...now if we could organize a meeting of the groups once we get beyond the current unpleasantness..."

Don Holt commented on Brant Guillory's group Triangle Area (NC) Wargaming
"As the Triad group will also be having the same problem, and together we number under 70, perhaps we should leave the logo as is, but make it the NC Wargamers group? There's quite a bit of overlap currently."

Hey Brant,
