It has certainly been nice to have a week off work and while the week has not gone the way I would have planned it, I did enjoy doing a bit of gaming and painting. I continued work on Eomer for my LOTR display project and I’m really happy with how he is looking. I’m … Continue reading Middle Earth SBG – Muster the Rohirrim!
Another week, another Fallout-based pun. Fortunately, I have regained hobby momentum this week and so I have more to share than in the last couple of weeks. I had some time to fill so I started another Fallout mini. For whatever reason, its hard to find decent pictures of Assaultrons in Fallout 4. I could … Continue reading Fallout – Assaultron and Battery
I have mostly been working on a single miniature this week and while I’ve made some good progress, it wouldn’t really make for an interesting update so I thought I’d tackle a topic that I don’t talk about or show off very much on my site. I’ve had the idea of exploring this for a … Continue reading Learning From Hobby Failures
Rust is tricky to paint and I struggled to learn how to do it early in my painting career. It wasn’t until recently that I finally started getting satisfactory results and I wanted to share how I did it with you. If you’re looking for a way to paint rust in a realistic and convincing … Continue reading How to Paint Realistic Rust for any Wargame

I don’t necessarily read tons of fantasy books but if you give me a high quality sculpt of an elf or dwarf, I’ll probably enjoy painting it more often than not. Today’s post is unusual because I have two things … Continue reading The Joys of Painting Fantasy Minis
Has it really been six months since I last did one of these? I certainly missed writing them as I find battle reports to be one of the most gratifying parts of the hobby. It is where you see all your hard hobby work come together. For this report, I’m playing Maggot’s Farm from the … Continue reading Maggot’s Farm MESBG Battle Report
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)
With the shutdown in the UK, Games Workshop has kept the hype train going for all of us stuck at home during the Coronavirus quarantine. While I wouldn’t call the first announcement overly surprising as it has been speculated as the next book to get released, but the Quest of the Ringbearer is officially the … Continue reading New Lord of the Rings Supplement and Minis Announced!
I know a while back I floated the idea of doing some painting guides on the site as a way to make the content available more unique and valuable to others and while I haven’t gotten around to doing it yet, I do have a guide to share with you. I’ve been hard at work … Continue reading How to Make Hedge Terrain for MESBG/LOTRSBG
I have quite a bit on my mind so this post might be a longer one than usual. Obviously, the world is kind of falling apart at the moment (or certainly the United States is) and while I’ve seen many people celebrating the extra hobby time (which I have been enjoying as well), it is … Continue reading Trees for Scouring of the Shire
