I’ve been really slack recently (or worse than usual) with updating the blog. Does it mean I’ve rested on my laurels? Why no, so today present another smorgas board of treats for you, starting with: Sir Percival Deschamps. He is the Grand Master of the Order of the Green Knight (see previous green and white… Read More Hobby update – Brets/Empire/Lizards
With the day of the show upon us I drove to North London for the venue opening at 7 to help with getting traders in and setup (they basically pay for the venue). After hauling trolleys of stuff back and forth (as well as using one to unload my boxes) I then got to set… Read More The Sundering of Montford pt 2
So the club show has come and gone and I thought I’d post some shots of the game. As with last year, I was asked if I wanted to run a demo game. Always one to jump at the chance of playing an epic size battle, I quickly agreed. Knowing that my regular opponent, Dr… Read More The Sundering of Montford pt1
I know that projects can really galvanise output but with the completion of this final Lance of knights that is now almost all my Bretonnians complete. All that had remained were: 2 damsels (1 on foot and 1 mounted) and a morning star paladin. These have now been joined by 48 fireforge miniatures, foot sergeants… Read More Hobby update pt4 – The final Lance
4 posts in a 48 hour period! Things are going crazy here. As you can probably tell, my hobby has been on overdrive, trying to get things ready for the show. It’s been pretty tunnel vision and all other hobby has gone out of the window. The next items finished were some of the heroes… Read More Hobby update pt3 – character-ful heroes

I again followed my trend of keeping a unified colour scheme across the unit though this time I attempted to add a bit more detail to some of them, adding cross… Read More Hobby update pt 2 – We can make you stronger, faster, Bret-er!
With the show in the works and having been asked to run a game again, a few months back I had some thoughts on what I’d like to do this year. My club mate (and regular opponent) Luke, had expressed disappointment that he hadn’t been able to attend last year. With his high standard of… Read More Hobby update – Things can only get Bret-er!

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
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
