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
For the first week in a while, I wasn’t able to get my usual weekend update done on time but work being a bit of a drag last week was part of that and I was working on some ambitious new stuff including some bigger and hopefully better tree pieces! I’m pretty happy with both … Continue reading The Eriador Project Continues
There is quite a lot of news coming from the biggest MESBG convention in the world today. At ArdaCon, GW announced some new Army of the Dead models including the king and heralds pictured below. The level of detail on these new sculpts is impressive and while I don’t know if I’ll ever buy or … Continue reading News from Arda: New Models and Old Favorites Return!
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
Finally back with hobby progress and really it is just the completion (or at least very near done) Farseer from a couple of updates ago. I think this guy has ended up being a bit of a palette cleanser and while I’ve been yearning to paint MESBG stuff the last week or so, its been … Continue reading The Wisdom of the Eldar
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
