Re: Wargamer Taxonomy

Just found this in my drafts, not entirely sure why I never got around to posting it.. but it’s dated March 21st 2014.. so it’s safe to say it’s a bit on the late side, it was interesting enough to dig out and finish off. So without further ado… Big Lee, over at Big Lee’s […]

X-wing re-paints, the imperials!


Paul only went and got me a little bit excited for re-painting X-wing models, something I’d considered and then put off for fear of bodging it up. These were done a little while back but I’ve only just remembered I needed to post about them! He started with his scum & villainy and I was […]

I scored a goal! woohoo!

More Guild Ball I’m afraid. Played another game vs Dave’s Alchemist team the other night, I lost on a 12 – 4 score (2 goals and 2 take downs versus 1 goal) but… I scored a goal! I’ll take that. I feel happier with my team now, beginning to get a better handle on what […]

Guild Ball and my first few outings!


Well it took a little while after the models were delivered to get a game in but I finally got there just before heading off on holiday a week or two back or so. I played Dave’s Alchemists and royally got my backside handed to me! Mental note.. AoE attacks are brutal, don’t bunch up! […]

First off, there’s Spartan’s halo game which I honestly don’t know much about.. but the one […]

Looking at an upcoming GW release, excuse the cynic in me


So there’s been some noise on the grapevine recently that GW are releasing a board game and it isn’t another space hulk re-vamp. Shocking I know. Cool your heels off for a minute there, let’s take a look at what we’re hearing. The board game is based around the officio assassinorum and players will be […]

More weekend progress

This weekend saw the delivery of the cheapest hobby supply I think I’ve ever bought. So I needed a broom head for my ponds so that I could steal a handful of bristles to use as reeds.. right? Right.. well.. £2, free postage, I bought a new 12″ broom head off of ebay. It probably […]

Pond progress

Just a little progress on the ponds, I dug out a tester pot of paint I forgot I had over the weekend and slapped it down on the black undercoated ponds. I think it may have been ‘double espresso’ something.. double something or other.. a homebase ‘own brand’ paint anyway. It dried a lot darker […]
