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
Scenery and painting update So I’ve not been totally quiet on this front. I took delivery of a bulk load of mdf movement trays as well as some themed Dwarven (/Celtic) trays. The mdf trays were glued together but apart from that, will sadly have to remain as is, due to time constraints. The 3… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – pt 3 – Painting update
Khazbar smiled inwardly. As his influence had started to grow again and with it his powerbase, who should come slinking back into the fold but his old rival, Bashor. With his grip over the herds, he could have made an example of the Beastlord but Bashor was powerful and more importantly, he had the measure… Read More WHFB – Beastmen vs Greg F’s Vampire Counts – 27/08/2021
This post is very late in production as I actually finished these models towards the start of August (the rules of our 40k competition dictated that our force must be fully painted). So without further preamble, these are the finished Intercessor marines for the Shadow Sentinels. Nothing different about this scheme over the others i’ve… Read More Hobby update – 40k – Shadow Sentinels
Before even looking at the choice of armies or drafting in help (covered previously in this post), I’d been thinking about the sort of game we should put on. The first place I looked at was the big rule book, as it contained a number of additional, more narrative, scenarios that wouldn’t normally see play.… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – Pt2 – Scenario and scenery.
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?
