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.

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
Another month has shot by without a post. This is starting to be a habit! As ever, although my blogging activity has dipped, I’ve been steadily painting, interspersed with a game here and there. 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
Khazbar sneered with distain as he watched the column of knights advance up the road.

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?
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

The Judiciar was actually the model I least liked in the box. It didn’t take long for me… Read More Hobby update – Space Marine and Bretonnians
It’s again one of those months where the moons have aligned and the omens appeared… or I’ve sat down and gone, I need some room on the board, finish off some of those half completed models why don’t you. The first on the list are 4 Bretonnian Knights of the Realm. These very much fall… Read More Hobby Update – bits and pieces.
I managed to line up a game in our club competition mid-week, when using up leave before our year end. This meant we got to try out the reasonably new wargaming venue in Borough (near London Bridge) called Bad Moon Café. It was my first time using the venue and as you would expect for… Read More WHFB – Wood Elves vs Bretonnians – Rumble in the SELWG Jungle – Comp’ Game – 12/03/19
