Saga Sunday- Carolingians and Pesky Proelium

It is now five weeks since my first post regarding my Carolingian force. To be honest, the amount of progress I have achieved during this time came as a bit of a shock to me. I have been quite busy since I started painting them, thanks to work, and I have also found dealing with the non-uniform… More Saga Sunday- Carolingians and Pesky Proelium

Saga Sunday- Carolingians

One month on since my last post on Brush and Boltgun and I have managed to change a pile of unpainted metal Carolingians into, well, a partially painted pile of metal Carolingians! I have had great fun painting these models. I am a massive fan of some of the Gripping Beast miniatures, whilst others fall into the ‘questionable’… More Saga Sunday- Carolingians

Saga II: the Saga continues…

As Adam mentioned last week, the new edition of Saga has come out and we are all a quite excited about it! Unfortunately, my beloved Normans have changed drastically; the mounted warriors in the list now have to be equipped with javelins, which makes them very susceptible to damage, and they are no longer fit… More Saga II: the Saga continues…

“I go, you go… we go?” The ‘Turn’ in Different Gaming Systems

In the simplest of games, it is accepted that players take turns. It is drummed into us from an early age. As we grow up and start playing board games, everyone still gets their turn, one after the other. Monopoly is a good example. In the majority of wargames, this holds true too. As gamers, we… More “I go, you go… we go?” The ‘Turn’ in Different Gaming Systems

Hobby Guilt and The Last Crusade

Mike: I started the Hobby Guilt season with a lot of optimism. It was, after all, my idea. I thought, ‘great, I can finally clear out some of these models that I’ve been working on before starting on our March to War 2018 competition in January’. As you’ve seen, fate and time transpired against me.… More Hobby Guilt and The Last Crusade

Hobby Guilt – Christmas Edition

Rob: Well, it’s the Christmas Edition, but there’s nothing festive about this week’s painting. With work’s parties and day to day life, there’s not been too much in the way of painting other than finishing off the Stormcast Eternals for Wednesday’s post: I’ve also been working on the Khorne Bloodbound a little, though not a… More Hobby Guilt – Christmas Edition

Video ‘How to: Paint Shadespire Orruks’

This week our video is about how to paint the Orruks from Shadespire. I’ve not gone with the regular yellow, instead choosing the blue of the Death Skulls, because all of my 40k orks are Death Skulls. Check it out here: Thanks for reading, and if you have any thoughts please comment below. While you’re… More Video ‘How to: Paint Shadespire Orruks’

Hobby Guilt – The saga continues

Rob We’ve been at this a few weeks now, and despite everything, I’ve still not stuck to the exact script of trying to clear out the backlog. This has been in no way helped by Necromunda being released. Since it’s release, I’ve primed all of the scenery with Games Workshop’s Stormvermin Fur spray and put… More Hobby Guilt – The saga continues

Necromunda has arrived and it’s wonderful! Unboxing and discussion.

In 1995, Games workshop released a table top game of gang warfare called Necromunda, a more basic and easy to play version of Confrontation, an underhive gang warfare game they’d run as a series of articles in White Dwarf. My pal RJ and I used to play that, with him playing scavvies, and me with… More Necromunda has arrived and it’s wonderful! Unboxing and discussion.

Hobby Guilt Season 3rd Update

Adam: Hi all. Apologies for missing last week’s instalment. Travelling with work got in the way, so all that really happened was that my models from Perry miniatures arrived, and there was much rejoicing. Unfortunately, this week’s progress hasn’t been particularly exciting either. This hobby challenge is definitely proving more of a grind than Blitzkrieg.… More Hobby Guilt Season 3rd Update
