Well, it’s been another long break between this and the previous Wargaming Bloggers Showcase. So, these aren’t brand new articles, but they’re still great articles worth checking out. The Mad Mek’s Workshop – Stone Base Tutorial I thought this was a gr…

Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Well, as you can see, I have been suffering a variety of tech issues which have kept me offline quite a bit. Hopefully, everything is on the mend now, so I’d like to apologise for not completing the June post a day challenge, so sorry for that, it […]

Customary Introduction with BdaGamer

Posted on July 12th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Hello Everyone! Bda_Gamer here from Randomness in the Warp. I would like to introduce myself  as a new member to this site. I am mostly interested in the gaming part of the hobby, but have been known to go into strategic rants and creating fluffy list. I am an average painter and that aspect of the hobby has drawn me back in. A casual gamer, mostly interested in Games Workshop 40k and looking into Heavy Gear. Having a huge collection of miniatures from various gaming systems gathered through the ages of collecting stuff, my backlog is constantly filled. Below are…continue reading

Will the new “IT” Movie, see a new wave of Creepy Clown sightings?

Posted on June 13th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

A subject not talked about on here for ages is that of the Clown sightings of the past few years. The worldwide craze started by the Northampton Clown, caused much fear and loathing in the community in the UK and US and started a viral sensation that now is but a distant memory. September sees […]

A Tale of Two Bossk’s: Cleethorpes Geekabilia 2017

Posted on June 11th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Back in April, I managed to get myself and most of the kids to Cleethorpes in North Lincolnshire (otherwise known as “Cleggy” to us here), not just for a week away with the family, but to attend a small Con they were holding there. I thought I’d share some pics of the event and some […]

Putting publications in print. Anyone want a copy?

Posted on June 8th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Ploughing through the various ways of self-publishing in print is very interesting. So, I thought I’d share a few thoughts on the subject and show you an early version I have had done for quality comparison. Back in the day, I remember the old indie RPG crowd in a similar position to Grinning Skull, and remembered the […]

Another General Election, same old bag of shit. Grinning Skull’s politics rant!

Posted on June 7th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Well, it’s a subject that I don’t entertain very often, the reason being, I fucking hate politics. For us here in the UK, we have a General Election tomorrow to see which c**t gets put into office (or stays in) but while I usually exercise my right to vote, this year I can’t be bothered. I […]

Okay, I’ll be straight up about it.  I’ve not posted anything in a long, long while.  There’s a reason for it, no matter how lame it may sound.  In late October of 16, I was in the garage cleaning stuff … Continue reading

5 reasons I F*%king love Hawk the Slayer!

I’m sure this movie needs no introductions. You can call this one of my guilty pleasure’s of the celluloid variety, as ever since I first saw it, I loved it ever since. In an age growing up where fantasy media was limited to a handful of films on VHS, no one could ever understand why […]

Wargaming Bloggers Showcase #45

I’m slowly working on doing these more frequently, so before I forget about this one for months again, here’s a short list of awesome articles. Modern Synthesist: Genestealer Patriarch Throne – The Osseous Throne Mr. Pink is someone I recently discovered thanks to Joe over at Broken Paintbrush. What Mr. Pink does very well is sculpting. Seriously, you have to go check out his work on this Genestealer Patriarch. This is part of an entire display he did for the GW Inner Circle, and it put him in the top 5 in North America. Objective Secured: Bog Sylvaneth – The Tainted There’s…continue reading

Brainfarts: Selling adverts in RPG Ebooks: Can it work? Can you make it viable?

Posted on June 2nd, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So, more thinking out loud here, I’m going to talk about something that is virtually non existent in RPG ebook media as far as I am aware, which could either be a real pain for me, or a real bonus. To recap, while before I could advertise my own projects, material and goods etc on […]
