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
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
To my surprise, I spent most of my time since playing Roast Mutton, painting up more minis from my Breaking of the Fellowship set. Its nice to have four of the nine done now as one day I’d love to play LOTR scenarios, especially from Fellowship of the Ring . First up, is Gandalf who … Continue reading The Painting of the Fellowship

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!

Sometimes you get a feeling when submitting your work for others to review … Continue reading Terrain Triumphs and Hobby Musings
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
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!
