As promised, I want to take a closer look at the new Scouring of the Shire book which I am incredibly excited about. While I’m happy to show a few images from the book, I’m not going to give away too much as I think everyone who is interested should go pick up a copy … Continue reading MESBG Scouring of the Shire Book Review
As I mentioned in my last post, I have been working on something that is display quality and outside of Middle Earth. I actually started this hobby by painting Warhammer and 40,000 before LOTR was released and while I quit in high school and doubt I’d ever play it again, I have a good painting … Continue reading A Triumphant Return to 40k?
It has been much too long since my last update! There are several reasons for this, not least of which was going back to Ohio to visit family over the holiday weekend. With that said, it is great to be back and have some hobby progress to share with you. I hope it proves to … Continue reading Trees in Progress
Before I jump into a hobby update, I wanted to let loyal readers know that I have created a page that contains a concise recommendation for scenarios I have played as well as any houserule suggestions I have. I know my battle reports are long and some people might rather know whether a scenario is … Continue reading High Ambitions and Hobby Struggles
With some time before I have enough minis and terrain ready for the next new scenario, I thought why not revisit a scenario I liked and wanted to play again with a different strategy and a new houserule to see if it was still fun? Fortunately, Rescue The Baggage proved to be quite exciting and … Continue reading Rescue The Baggage – Second Attempt – Battle Report
I’ve thought about writing this before because truthfully I’ve been a bit unfaithful to LOTRSBG/HobbitSBG/MESBG despite being madly in love with it in 2019. Once I started playing Escape From Goblin Town scenarios, I fell in love with the wargaming hobby and keep looking for other games I might play in addition to my adventures … Continue reading Does Your Hobbying Eye Ever Wander?
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
