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.
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
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
Amongst the chaos that is working from home with kids, I’ve managed to squeeze in a bit of painting time (the army book review was mainly a cut and paste so didn’t count as effort 😉). The first model below was actually completed in July but for some reason I don’t like posting single models… Read More Hobby Update – Beastmen and Wood Elves
Edit: somehow I managed to unpublish this post so apologies if you’ve already seen this It’s been a while since I posted and now I have 3 different painting updates (and apologies for a couple of paragraphs of me going on). You’d be forgiven for thinking I have spare time on my hands since the… Read More Hobby Update – Wood Elves, Dwarves and Beastmen
I managed to line up a game in our club competition mid-week, when using up leave before our year end. This meant we got to try out the reasonably new wargaming venue in Borough (near London Bridge) called Bad Moon Café. It was my first time using the venue and as you would expect for… Read More WHFB – Wood Elves vs Bretonnians – Rumble in the SELWG Jungle – Comp’ Game – 12/03/19
As I realised in my last post, I completely forgot to post any pictures of my wildriders. These were actually finished over the xmas period and the only thing that have been changed since is i’ve added some woodland flowers to the bases. (At the time I hadn’t been able to find these as they… Read More Hobby Update – The missing Wildriders
