This week I powered through to finish two “projects” that have been going on for a while. The first is one you already have seen but its nice to have the basing done. In my mind, I thought these were going to look a little cooler (the bases that is) than they turned out. I … Continue reading The Joy of Finished Projects
If you’ve been visiting my blog much over the last month or two, you know I’ve been whinging about painting my Hunter Orc on Fell Wargs. They are very detailed miniatures and take more time than you expect to paint. While I enjoy painting them more than I let on, they are certainly a real … Continue reading A Hunter Orc Milestone plus There and Back Again
Another week in the books and its once again time to check in on my hobby progress which was somewhat light this time. All I have to show is three painted up Hobbit Militia who are done other than being based. Surprisingly, I had a pretty good time painting these metal sculpts which don’t have … Continue reading In Defense of the Shire and the Eriador Project
Thanks in part to the encouragement of you all and a holiday weekend here in the US, I finally played my next scenario and this time it is the first one from An Unexpected Journey! I’ve been looking forward to playing this one for quite some time and while I fully admit that I haven’t … Continue reading Roast Mutton – Hobbit SBG – Battle Report
It has been an interesting week for me. I put the Farseer up on Cool Mini Or Not for rating (you can see it and vote on it here, if you’re inclined) and on Instagram and have been humbled by the response. Sometimes you get a feeling when submitting your work for others to review … Continue reading Terrain Triumphs and Hobby Musings
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
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!
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
I have been painting several things recently and making good progress until disaster struck. I had half of the terrain in the Escape From Goblin Town Set painted up and ready to be varnished and when a relatively cool morning presented itself I jumped at the chance to do so. Unfortunately, I oversprayed the terrain … Continue reading Painting Delays and Gloin Joins the Fray!
As promised in my last update, I have some more painting progress to share with you. To my surprise, I found myself working on my first member of Thorin’s Company! To help me paint Fili, I found a great guide on the Tale of Painters Blog that I can recommend if you’re stumped as to … Continue reading Thorin’s Company Forms
