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.
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
Last year BigBen (who bought out Cynide – the makers of the online BB game) released a tweet saying that BB3 had been delayed so that it could coincide with the new release and new rules of the upcoming board game. It was quickly deleted but gave everyone a heads up that we were likely… Read More Blood Bowl 2020 (and BB3 online)
You’ll all be pleased to know* that I’m not dead yet. I’ve just been really poorly motivated around the blog recently. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t done anything on the hobby front though. Dwarven Miners In terms of painting, I finally managed to finish off the horde of dwarf miners that have jammed up… Read More Hobby update – Dwarves and Blood Bowl league games
Beastmen I’m a bit late posting pictures of the first of the models considering that, for me, I speed painted it in order to field it in my last battle report. Skegi One-horn, the most recent Wargor to emerge from the ranks of the Bestigor, disdains the use use of his own feet and will… Read More Hobby Update – Beasts, Hobbits, Dwarf and opening Blood Bowl game.
In our recent club blood bowl competition I was knocked out in the quarter finals. This is pretty much recurring theme in every club competition I enter, no matter what game system but that is neither here nor there The award I’ve been after for two seasons is most casualties caused and in the first… Read More Blood Bowl – League top scorer.
A while ago I backed (and subsequently received) the models from Willy Miniatures Vampire 2.0 Kickstarter. I’ve talked about the KS before in an earlier post so won’t rehash it here in any detail (quick recap: KS was generally fine but the communication to backers was abysmal). That aside I’ve grown to love a lot… Read More Hobby update – Blood Bowl
My hobby progress slowly trundles on. End of March/April is always a terrible time as its our year end, I have to complete my team’s appraisals and then the auditors arrive. All combine to ensure long hours, working at home and all round general knackeredness prevails. Thankfully that is all behind me and I can… Read More Hobby update – Ghorros Warhoof and Willy Miniatures Blood Bowl Kickstarter
It’s come to that time of the year when the competitions I’m most interested in, at the club, have kicked off. Namely the Warhammer fantasy 8th (which I’m running) and the second Blood Bowl season. As there are bonus points on offer for fully painted armies, my wood elf painting continues and I managed to… Read More Hobby update – Wood Elves (and a bit of blood bowl)
