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
If you’ve been visiting my blog much over the last month or two, you know I’ve been whinging about painting my Hunter Orc on Fell Wargs. They are very detailed miniatures and take more time than you expect to paint. While I enjoy painting them more than I let on, they are certainly a real … Continue reading A Hunter Orc Milestone plus There and Back Again
To my surprise, I spent most of my time since playing Roast Mutton, painting up more minis from my Breaking of the Fellowship set. Its nice to have four of the nine done now as one day I’d love to play LOTR scenarios, especially from Fellowship of the Ring . First up, is Gandalf who … Continue reading The Painting of the Fellowship
Finally back with hobby progress and really it is just the completion (or at least very near done) Farseer from a couple of updates ago. I think this guy has ended up being a bit of a palette cleanser and while I’ve been yearning to paint MESBG stuff the last week or so, its been … Continue reading The Wisdom of the Eldar
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?
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
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!
