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
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
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).
So the day of the show arrived and I was out of the door at 7am to drive to the north of the city and got to the venue just before the doors opened to the other clubs putting on games and the traders. This year, we had moved the show to a new venue,… Read More The Battle of Bogenhof – pt 6 – The Battle!
This post will literally just break down the forces involved with some brief thoughts on how we would be simplifying some of it. As stated before the main aim of the demo game was to field as many large units and big gribblies as possible. Not having any experience in this size game, I turned… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – pt5 – the armies
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
Although I’m on various Facebook groups and other social media platforms I much prefer the intimacy of some other platforms, as the community just seems tighter and less prone to attracting a certain type of person. Of course the WP community is one and my other favourite is the EEFL forum. Over the years I’ve… Read More A message frooooom America
The village of Waldenhefer was not a place that any traveller would willing go. The only thing going for it, bar the overly grandiose name, was that it had the only crossing of the River Talabec for 40 miles. Thus when Khazbar led his newly raised herd out of the forest and towards it, the… Read More WHFB – Beastmen vs Greg’s Empire – 09/10/2020
Straight off I’m going to apologise for the mostly unpainted state of my army. Greg and I had decided to both field armies that we were potentially taking to this year’s Riotville event in March (though a bigger pointed version, as that event is capped at 1800). As such both armies are a work in… Read More WHFB – Lizardmen vs Greg’s Empire Jan 2020
