Matthew Lee

Matthew is the editor of The Campaigner. Since childhood he has played all sorts of tabletop games, the focus being wargames in his teens and young adulthood.

Miniature converting and painting is a passion, but with less time to dedicate to whole armies, the focus has moved to working with dioramas and individual figures. As well as The Campaigner, he runs the tabletop media company Motive Force, coordinates the game design organisation ThinkTank, and is one of the team of Kanga judges. He lives in South Australia, Australia with two dogs, a cat, and a long-suffering but understanding girlfriend.
