Finishing Hobby Projects- A Productive Sunday

I’ve been juggling a couple of projects for a bit which have been quite slow going. On Sunday I got all of these out so I could review where I was up to and what needed to be done to get them over the finish line. In the end, I spent approximately 9 hours working on the Ironclad for my Kharadron Overlords, as well as the Vehicles from the eBay Grey Knights project. I can now say happily that these projects are more or less complete

Reassessing my relationship with game companies- The Fan problem.

Apologies if this post is a bit rambly, I’ve been swilling some thoughts around in my head for the last couple of days and want to get them down on “paper”. I’m going to be touching on the relationship between GW and the community and so if you are sick and tired of all the negativity by all means give this post a miss but for everyone else, hopefully you will find what I’ve got to say useful. Miniature posts are incoming and I’ve been working more on the Grey Knights so expect something on them very soon. Before we proceed with today’s post, some context so this hopefully makes some sense.

Loosing my motivation to paint Games Workshop Products.

It’s been a little while since I last posted on here and sadly enough, that is because I haven’t had much to report on. After spending a great deal of time over the lockdown period enthused to paint miniatures and get my 40k & AOS armies ready for a return to play, I’ve finally ran out of steam.

Discovering Frostgrave 2nd Edition

About a month or so ago while browsing YouTube, I stumbled upon a interesting table top Fantasy skirmish game that really caught my imagination. The game is called Frostgrave and features players controlling a party of adventurers, headed by a wizard and wizard’s apprentice as they battle not only the other player, but also A.I. controlled monsters in an attempt to find treasure. Though characters share similar starting stat profiles, ten different schools of magic with a vast amount of spell options mean you can really make something that feels unique. This elegant simplicity (to start) yet complexity really appeals. I’ve not yet had chance to play sadly, but I’m really excited for this one so wanted to bring it to your attention, as well as show off some of the minis I’ve been working on for it.

1 Year of WordPress Blogging & Hobby updates

I received an e-mail this morning notifying me that this blog has been active for a year and what a strange year it has been. A side effect of the Covid crisis and being forced to stay in lockdown has been an increase in spare time for hobby projects. It’s been an opportunity to work through my backlog and get a few long term projects cleared away. What’s more, it’s been an opportunity to begin blogging about the hobby. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 😀

Warhammer Fest 2021- My thoughts on what we saw

Anyone with a social media account in the hobby will no doubt have seen the bombardment of news and previews this week for all things Games Workshop. Usually an in person event, this year Warhammer Fest was online and this meant I got to see the reveals myself first hand. As we are now a day after the final preview, I thought it would be a good time to briefly talk about what we saw and share my thoughts for what is coming.
