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).
After the build up and running of the club demo game, I had a bit of inevitable hobby burnout. That’s not to say I didn’t do anything but I definitely didn’t have the urge to go near a brush for a while. To get me back in the swing of things I went back to… Read More Hobby Update – Bretonnian Archers and WE Treekin.
This will be the last of the painting updates as everything is now done and dusted (or as much as it can be before Sunday’s game). The first thing cleared from the board was the High King of the Dwarves, Thorgrim Grudgebearer. Costing over 600pts to field, it means that he rarely sees play (so… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – pt4 – painting update
Scenery and painting update So I’ve not been totally quiet on this front. I took delivery of a bulk load of mdf movement trays as well as some themed Dwarven (/Celtic) trays. The mdf trays were glued together but apart from that, will sadly have to remain as is, due to time constraints. The 3… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – pt 3 – Painting update
Before even looking at the choice of armies or drafting in help (covered previously in this post), I’d been thinking about the sort of game we should put on. The first place I looked at was the big rule book, as it contained a number of additional, more narrative, scenarios that wouldn’t normally see play.… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – Pt2 – Scenario and scenery.
In writing this I realised that I have barely been on WordPress for the last few months and I have a bucketload of content to catch up on! 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
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
Space Marine I thought I’d start with something different today. It’s been an age since I’ve painted any 40K, but having split the indominatus box with a club mate, I actually had the urge to do so! 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
