Arthur van der Ster’s obsession with miniature wargaming began in the 1980s, when his brother bought a box of Esci Union infantry and MB’s HeroQuest. This also sparked his interest in fantasy, science fiction, and history, in particular American history. In 2011 and 2014, he went onto earn his BA and MA degrees in American studies. He is currently a teacher, teaching Dutch to adults with an immigrant background, and wishes one day to teach American history at a university. Arthur lives in Houten in the Netherlands, with his wife Joyce and daughter Virginia, his pride and joy.
