After the hecktickness of the show and getting things ready for it, I might have been forgiven if I’d had a bit of hobby burnout or taken my foot off the gas. However at the minute i feel really galvanised, so got straight back on the bandwagon and finished off a unit of 6 Ripperdactyls.… Read More Hobby update – A right ripper of a unit
With the launch date of the Call of the Crown as 30th September, I thought I’d better get a mosey on and start hammering away at my pledge. With 6 Lizardmen coldone riders already on the table and started, I’d excluded them from the pledge but with another 6 not started, it seemed as good… Read More Hobby Update – a case of cold ones!
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. 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
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
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
Warning – will contain expletives! It’s happened, I’ve finally been forced onto the new editor and my god it’s fucking shite. I cannot comprehend how anyone outside of a developer could think the new editor was intuitive. You press return and it adds a new block rather than a new line. I still haven’t worked… Read More Hobby update (Lizardmen, Marines, Assassin) and mini rant about Gutenburg
This year I again attended Riotville live, about the only event I attend each year (primarily as it’s fairly local and a one day chillhammer event). I’d failed miserably to paint up my Lizards in time so instead dug out my dwarves. It was great to see many of the same faces in attendance again… Read More WHFB – Dwarves vs Lee’s Lizardmen – Riotville Live 2020 – 01/03/2020
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
