With the club show coming up, I was speaking to one of the committee and he mentioned that this year we were short of participation/demo games. It didn’t take me much time to offer to put one on, with thoughts of large epic battles in my head, worthy of The Hoodling’s Hole himself! There was… Read More Battle Of Bogenhof – SELWG Show Demo Game – pt1 initial thoughts
This is just a short promotional piece for our club show. After a 1 year covid Hiatus, the club are again putting on their annual show. This year it will be in a new home, the Lee Valley Athletics Centre (previously it was held at Crystal Palace). It will have plenty of demo and participation… Read More SELWG Show – 17 October 2021
Although I have a number of models, I very rarely play 40K. This is down to a few things: lack of time (or perhaps more accurately, taking away play time from bloodbowl and fantasy), being put off by the horribly bloated 7th edition ruleset (which was when I first started) and then in my first… Read More Toe in the water, 40K again
Barlin looked up as Drugin stomped into his chamber, “they’re back” scowled the Thane. Barlin grimaced, remembering the last time warriors of the dark gods has reached their lands. He stood slowly, aided by his Runestaff. “Sound the muster and fetch the book of the hold, this time we’ll have a surprise for those that… Read More WHFB – Dwarves vs Luke’s Warriors – 21/05/2021
In writing this I realised that I have barely been on WordPress for the last few months and I have a bucketload of content to catch up on! As ever, work has gotten in the way of any kind of evening life with the hours just killing me recently. However audit is over and I’ve… Read More Hobby Update – where to start?
Although I’m on various Facebook groups and other social media platforms I much prefer the intimacy of some other platforms, as the community just seems tighter and less prone to attracting a certain type of person. Of course the WP community is one and my other favourite is the EEFL forum. Over the years I’ve… Read More A message frooooom America
After my run on space marines I had the itch to get back onto the fantasy bandwagon. Having painted a pretty simple colour scheme for the SM I thought I’d challenge myself and like a glutton for punishment went straight for the Bretonnians. Like many I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love the… Read More Hobby update – Bretonnians
It around this time of year (or in my case a month after everyone else…) that most of us bloggers do a round up of what was achieved in the year just gone and what they hope to do in the upcoming year and you know what, I’ve never properly done one of these posts.… Read More Looking back and looking forward.
Painting hit a bit of a low recently but with a day off and no kids/wife around, I managed to finish off a few of the things on the painting board, namely the new Chaplain on Bike, an apothecary and 11 sternguard. These will be the last marines I paint for a while as frankly,… Read More Hobby update – Space Marines
Warning – will contain expletives! It’s happened, I’ve finally been forced onto the new editor and my god it’s fucking shite. I cannot comprehend how anyone outside of a developer could think the new editor was intuitive. You press return and it adds a new block rather than a new line. I still haven’t worked… Read More Hobby update (Lizardmen, Marines, Assassin) and mini rant about Gutenburg
