As I mentioned in my last post, I have been working on something that is display quality and outside of Middle Earth. I actually started this hobby by painting Warhammer and 40,000 before LOTR was released and while I quit in high school and doubt I’d ever play it again, I have a good painting … Continue reading A Triumphant Return to 40k?
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
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.

I thought these minis would be both a good challenge and fun to … Continue reading The Trolls Invade Middle Earth

Unfortunately, I oversprayed the terrain … Continue reading Painting Delays and Gloin Joins the Fray!
Alright, it isn’t terribly impressive to go from one to two but I’m still pleased to present Oin to you! I am satisfied with how he came out even if I think I did a better job painting Fili overall. I couldn’t get his eyes right (though it is hard to tell in the picture … Continue reading Thorin’s Company Doubles in Size
As promised in my last update, I have some more painting progress to share with you. To my surprise, I found myself working on my first member of Thorin’s Company! To help me paint Fili, I found a great guide on the Tale of Painters Blog that I can recommend if you’re stumped as to … Continue reading Thorin’s Company Forms
I’ve had Escape From Goblin Town for about a week and so I thought it would be a good time to check in and see if it is living up to my high hopes! First off, the sculpts and design of the goblins have really grown on me. I remember not loving the goblins when … Continue reading Down In Goblin Town – Painting Progress
