The joy of being so poor at updating the blog recently, is again I’m able to post a chunk of hobby update. It makes me look like my out put is along the lines of Davekay or Az’ (rather than it being spread over a 3 month period…)! So i’ll kick off with: Empire Following… Read More Hobby Update, a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
Khazbar sneered with distain as he watched the column of knights advance up the road. Soon they would reach the forest and that was where his herd would strike, once again showing the superiority of the beasts! A shout from the column disturbed his thoughts of victory. One of the man things was pointing. He… Read More WHFB – Beastmen vs Drew’s Bretonnians – Riotville – May 2022
After 3 weeks of back to back covid cases in our house, in the run up to and over Xmas (only avoided by yours truly), things have got back to semi normality (only ruined by some killer hours at work). The good news is I managed to squeeze in some painting and it’s one of… Read More Hobby Update – a veritable feast I tell you! (WE, Empire, Beastmen, Dungeonbowl).
Greetings blood bowl fans. With Nurgles latest predilections finally having receded enough to allow the clubs back open*, the latest season of Blood Bowl is on! With financial strife and ruin running rampant, in a similar vein to the great NAF collapse, many of the existing teams were forced to disband and this year sees… Read More Block it like it’s hot – Bloodbowl
Continuing with dipping the toe back into 40k, I was due to have my final competition game on the 3rd but my opponent had to pull out last minute due to the dreaded Nurgles rot. Thankfully I was able to find another opponent at short notice and one i’d not played before (not difficult with… Read More Shadow Sentinels vs Death Guard & 40k list evaluation
After the build up and running of the club demo game, I had a bit of inevitable hobby burnout. That’s not to say I didn’t do anything but I definitely didn’t have the urge to go near a brush for a while. To get me back in the swing of things I went back to… Read More Hobby Update – Bretonnian Archers and WE Treekin.
I’m not one to normally post on the death of an artist but Chris sadly passed away earlier in the week and was one who very much helped to influence my formative fantasy years. His artwork was a fair few fighting fantasy books, covers of White dwarf and I even had 2 A1 sized posters… Read More Chris Achilleos
So the day of the show arrived and I was out of the door at 7am to drive to the north of the city and got to the venue just before the doors opened to the other clubs putting on games and the traders. This year, we had moved the show to a new venue,… Read More The Battle of Bogenhof – pt 6 – The Battle!
This post will literally just break down the forces involved with some brief thoughts on how we would be simplifying some of it. As stated before the main aim of the demo game was to field as many large units and big gribblies as possible. Not having any experience in this size game, I turned… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – pt5 – the armies
This will be the last of the painting updates as everything is now done and dusted (or as much as it can be before Sunday’s game). The first thing cleared from the board was the High King of the Dwarves, Thorgrim Grudgebearer. Costing over 600pts to field, it means that he rarely sees play (so… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – pt4 – painting update
