I bet that title got your attention! It has been a wild two weeks and enough has happened to nearly cause hobby whiplash so what I will try to do is explain what’s been going on in a concise manner and then share the usual hobby progress afterwards. First, I tried to paint the first … Continue reading Paint some bloody Warhammer
I’m going to break my “rules” and show an actual WIP this week. As I think I’ve mentioned before, I need to stop varnishing one or two figures a week as it isn’t efficient. I like showing you only finished work but I hope that seeing minis twice isn’t too much of a bother. In … Continue reading Codsworth and Some Serious MESBG Musings
In a bid to cover up the fact that I only have a single model that I’ve worked on this week and it isn’t quite done yet, I thought I’d share a bit more of my hobby history as well as share some things that helped me become a better painter along the way. Since … Continue reading My Painting/Gaming Journey Thus Far
I’m back from vacation and nearly recovered from an early morning flight thankfully. Orlando was less sunny and warm than I hoped but still a much needed improvement from Chicago. Disney World was less fun than I hoped, more crowded and frustrating than expected, and so it is hard to assess how much fun my … Continue reading Are There Too Many Games Out There?
This week was a bit of a low point for me hobbywise. I had a difficult week at work where I had to get re-acclimated to being in the office which completely exhausted me. It felt like I had little energy and less time to hobby this week than I’ve ever had. I still don’t … Continue reading Making Pine Trees for MESBG
It has been two weeks since my last update and I will blame my surgery for that. It really did a number on me. For the first couple of days after surgery I could barely sleep or eat. The pain was pretty high and I was completely dependent on my fiancee. On my birthday, things … Continue reading Post-Surgery Painting Renaissance
I have been hard at work and enjoying my painting since my post last week. I’ve been focusing on getting stuff done and not worrying if every little thing doesn’t come out perfectly. It can be liberating to paint in this way and I’m sure that is why I’ve been enjoying painting a lot lately. … Continue reading A Visit to Farmer Maggot’s Farm
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
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
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!
