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?
While I’ve had a productive week, I don’t have tons to show off so for this week, I think I’ll just share some exciting news from Games Workshop instead. If you’re a fan of the Horse Lords, you’ve probably already been looking forward to the release of Rohan At War but the amount of stuff … Continue reading Rohan at War – New Models!
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
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
I’ve thought about writing this before because truthfully I’ve been a bit unfaithful to LOTRSBG/HobbitSBG/MESBG despite being madly in love with it in 2019. Once I started playing Escape From Goblin Town scenarios, I fell in love with the wargaming hobby and keep looking for other games I might play in addition to my adventures … Continue reading Does Your Hobbying Eye Ever Wander?
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
While the battle reports will slow down a bit, my hobbying will continue on as usual to keep the content coming here on the site. Something I recently finished were the three trolls and their campfire needed for the Roast Mutton scenario. I thought these minis would be both a good challenge and fun to … Continue reading The Trolls Invade Middle Earth
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!
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!
