While it was frequently delayed (not unlike Gandalf in the books now that I think about it), I was able to wrap up the diorama this week. With creative works, I think you can be too close to what you make and start to lose perspective on it. With this one, I probably have been … Continue reading MESBG – The Bounder’s Duty Diorama
I’m happy to report that this past week was much better. I got some forward momentum on the diorama and have a few things to show off. First up, I finally got to put my green stuff and tools to work and patched up this little guy. Can you see any rough spots or where … Continue reading MESBG – A Shirriff joins the fray
Progress on the diorama continues but not as fast or smoothly I would like. I managed to get the base sculpted, sanded, and ready for the next steps which is to be frank, one of the less exciting parts of the process so that’s good. I’ve also been chipping away at the remaining minis that … Continue reading MESBG – Hobbit-sized sculpts can cause headaches
It took a lot longer than I hoped but I finally have what I need to play a new scenario in MESBG. Unfortunately, I ran into more warping issues with the previously completed version of Maggot’s crop so I ended up pitching it. Instead, I got some crops from my favorite MDF supplier, Charlie Foxtrot … Continue reading Farmer Maggot’s Crops Done (For Real This Time)
I feel like I’ve been saying it often lately (because it is unfortunately true) but this has been another stressful week for me so to relax, I mostly focused on painting stuff for gaming purposes. I also am still waiting on my much-needed item from Poland so no chance to get terrain done this week … Continue reading A Brief Return to the Shire
Welcome to 2020! I have some cool project updates to share but I thought it was worth taking a moment and discussing some plans I have for the new year as well. First up, I’m very much dedicated to playing MESBG scenarios this year. I don’t have too far to go until my next one … Continue reading For the Shire!
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
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
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!
