After the hecktickness of the show and getting things ready for it, I might have been forgiven if I’d had a bit of hobby burnout or taken my foot off the gas. However at the minute i feel really galvanised, so got straight back on the bandwagon and finished off a unit of 6 Ripperdactyls.… Read More Hobby update – A right ripper of a unit
With the day of the show upon us I drove to North London for the venue opening at 7 to help with getting traders in and setup (they basically pay for the venue). After hauling trolleys of stuff back and forth (as well as using one to unload my boxes) I then got to set… Read More The Sundering of Montford pt 2
So the club show has come and gone and I thought I’d post some shots of the game. As with last year, I was asked if I wanted to run a demo game. Always one to jump at the chance of playing an epic size battle, I quickly agreed. Knowing that my regular opponent, Dr… Read More The Sundering of Montford pt1
I know that projects can really galvanise output but with the completion of this final Lance of knights that is now almost all my Bretonnians complete. All that had remained were: 2 damsels (1 on foot and 1 mounted) and a morning star paladin. These have now been joined by 48 fireforge miniatures, foot sergeants… Read More Hobby update pt4 – The final Lance
4 posts in a 48 hour period! Things are going crazy here. As you can probably tell, my hobby has been on overdrive, trying to get things ready for the show. It’s been pretty tunnel vision and all other hobby has gone out of the window. The next items finished were some of the heroes… Read More Hobby update pt3 – character-ful heroes
Flicking through the blog, I realised that I’d completely missed uploading shots of the unit finished just before the Lizardmen Cold-ones, my Grail Knights. I again followed my trend of keeping a unified colour scheme across the unit though this time I attempted to add a bit more detail to some of them, adding cross… Read More Hobby update pt 2 – We can make you stronger, faster, Bret-er!
With the show in the works and having been asked to run a game again, a few months back I had some thoughts on what I’d like to do this year. My club mate (and regular opponent) Luke, had expressed disappointment that he hadn’t been able to attend last year. With his high standard of… Read More Hobby update – Things can only get Bret-er! Part 1
This Sunday sees our club run it’s annual show. Like last year, it’s being held at the Lee Valley Athletics Park in north London (the same place where the London GT is held). There are over 50 traders in attendance and a bucket load of games (participation and demo of various genres) as well as… Read More SELWG Show – Sunday 16th
After 30+ years (! Good god that’s frightening) of playing GW games, last month I finally managed to make the pilgrimage to warhammer world. It was a bit of a whirl wind trip as it involved dropping the kids off, a 3 hour or so journey, 3 hours there and then a 3 hour return… Read More Warhammer World
With the launch date of the Call of the Crown as 30th September, I thought I’d better get a mosey on and start hammering away at my pledge. With 6 Lizardmen coldone riders already on the table and started, I’d excluded them from the pledge but with another 6 not started, it seemed as good… Read More Hobby Update – a case of cold ones!
