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
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.
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
This is just a short promotional piece for our club show. After a 1 year covid Hiatus, the club are again putting on their annual show. This year it will be in a new home, the Lee Valley Athletics Centre (previously it was held at Crystal Palace). It will have plenty of demo and participation… Read More SELWG Show – 17 October 2021
Although I have a number of models, I very rarely play 40K. This is down to a few things: lack of time (or perhaps more accurately, taking away play time from bloodbowl and fantasy), being put off by the horribly bloated 7th edition ruleset (which was when I first started) and then in my first… Read More Toe in the water, 40K again
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
You’ll all be pleased to know* that I’m not dead yet. I’ve just been really poorly motivated around the blog recently. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t done anything on the hobby front though. Dwarven Miners In terms of painting, I finally managed to finish off the horde of dwarf miners that have jammed up… Read More Hobby update – Dwarves and Blood Bowl league games
