Unless you count the Goblin Town terrain I have been painting (which I don’t), I have never made any terrain before and certainly not from scratch. Thankfully, there are some great videos on Youtube by the Terrain Tutor to learn the art of terrain making. Thanks to a video on making scatter terrain with cd … Continue reading My First Foray Into Terrain Making
Since I haven’t been getting any games in, I’ve been focusing on hobbying which truthfully is my favorite part of all this. As you’ll see in the coming weeks, I bounce around between various projects to make sure I don’t get tired of painting any one particular thing. It takes longer to get the minis … Continue reading The Fellowship Begins
While the battle reports will slow down a bit, my hobbying will continue on as usual to keep the content coming here on the site. Something I recently finished were the three trolls and their campfire needed for the Roast Mutton scenario. I thought these minis would be both a good challenge and fun to … Continue reading The Trolls Invade Middle Earth
We have arrived at the end of the Escape From Goblin Town scenarios! It has been a fun journey thus far and the last scenario presents its fair share of new wrinkles. Perhaps most significantly for me, it gives me a chance to use my favorite Hobbit mini that I’ve painted! After the last battle … Continue reading Wizards in the Dark – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
The point of this blog post isn’t really to break news that many people will have already seen but to share my excitement for the news and explain how it will shape what I’m doing in the near future. First off, The Scouring of the Shire is like the one thing I always wanted to … Continue reading The Scouring of the Shire Returns to MESBG!
With only two scenarios left to go, I was hoping the last ones from the Goblin Town box set close things out strongly. This scenario was another intriguing one since the good side is limited to just Gandalf and Bilbo and the goblins not only have their king but Grinnah as well. Did fewer models … Continue reading The Wizard and the Burglar – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
When I started this site, I actually envisioned it more as a WIP blog where I shared painting techniques and hobby progress. I didn’t have enough freetime to maintain it however so that is why the site dropped off in terms of updates, I am starting that side of things back up now because I … Continue reading Goblin Town is Built!
Another week, another battle report! It is kind of cliche for me to say this at this point but I was once again excited to play out this scenario and I was somewhat confident that it would be more fun the previous one. What makes Guard the Crossing exciting is that it is a bit … Continue reading Guard the Crossing – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
Since I performed so poorly in a tactical sense last game, I wanted to give this scenario a second try to see if it was me or the scenario that was the problem! Pre-Game Thoughts – Unlike the previous game, I was going to move aggressively with the dwarves to ensure they got to one … Continue reading Brothers In Arms – Second Attempt – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
This week’s scenario presents something very different. Instead of platforms limiting movement, there was an open board to play on. Knowing that my kitchen table wouldn’t realistically pass for the caves in the Misty Mountains, I decided to order a F.A.T. Mat that fits the Goblin Town aesthetics pretty well. So I’m certainly excited to … Continue reading Brothers In Arms – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
