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!
Call of the Crown is an annual challenge set by the Crown of Command podcast. This is a podcast mainly dedicated to the herohammer era (4/5th edition) but they are welcoming of any warhammer fans. They also produce a fanzine that is a complete nostalgia fest if this era is your thing. The 3rd issue… Read More Call of the Crown 2022
Following on nicely from the last battle report, my club mate, Luke, has also started to put together some of his battles in a similar format. We were originally due to play Bloodbowl. That would have been my final game of the group stage and if I’d have won or drawn (and there was a… Read More WHFB – Beastmen vs Bretonnia – April 22
Today’s post is a bit different. Instead of my usual battle report, this is going to purely be a link to a you tube report created by my opponent, Simon. Earlier in the year, I joined a central London Warhammer Whatsapp group and although most of the time I’ll struggle to meet up with members,… Read More WHFB – Beastmen vs Daemons of Khorne – Apr 2022

Empire The first thing crossed off were the first 20 Halberdiers in my fledgling Empire army. I don’t mind saying that… Read More Monthly(ish) hobby update – Empire/Brets & Lizards
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
