Birthday Money All Spent

Posted on September 20th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Although I have managed to do a bit of painting I had to stop early. Recovery from a bug isn’t easy and I have been extremely fatigued which has lead to me having the shakes. Too much blood in my caffeine stream I guess.Whilst I haven’t been too succes…

Gaming somewhere between Wargames and Boardgames

Posted on September 18th, 2017 under . Posted by

More and more games seem to be blurring the lines between tabletop war-games and traditional boardgames. A couple of case in points were the games we played Game Night and over the weekend.I picked up Massive Darkness as a Kickstarter. One of those it …

Wallace fails again

Posted on September 6th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Another shot at Hammer of the Scots last night, once again due to cultural stereotyping I was playing William Wallace and Simon Edward I. Lessons had been learned in the last game and it showed it this one, we got into the swing of things fairly quickl…

Napoleon I Ain’t

Popped down to Kevin’s this afternoon to get one of his boardgames on the table, we played Napoleon: Waterloo Campaign 1815. I checked up the rules which had been sent to me and also the forums on BoardGameGeek, the best resource as far as I know if yo…

Human Team Ogre

Now that I am nearing finishing enough players for the Human Blood Bowl Team, I thought it was time I should have a look at this figure now. What I am really doing is avoiding finishing the Orc Troll and dry brushing the Human Blitzers (not to mention …

Marking Time By What’s On The Workbench

Posted on August 6th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

I haven’t done much painting for a few days and this morning I was feeling the absence. Although I have had plenty to do, I have found time to do some painting. The New Cruelty dictates that I paint five figures per week. This means finish the paint jo…

Blood Bowl Human Blitzers And Throwers

Posted on August 4th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Just having a lunch break so I thought I would take a moment to show what I have done so far today. Four blitzers and two throwers. Although I haven’t quite finished the linemen there is just a few bits of detailing, varnishing and transfers to be done…

Human Linemen

Posted on August 3rd, 2017 under , . Posted by

For a long while I have had a thing about Blood Bowl. It is probably thirty years since I played any other GW wargame (although I have played some of the old board games). With the Orc Team more or less finished, it’s time to give them some opposition….

Gratuitous Work In Progress Shots

What chances I have had today I have spent painting. This should have been a good day for painting as my other half is out of the house for a few days. Trouble is the dog is missing her and has spent a lot of time going mental.My first six Blood Bowl H…

Plans Never Work

Posted on July 31st, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

In the Blood Bowl game there is a god they players and fans worship called Nuffle (not NFL). If Nuffle exists, he is not smiling on me today. I was up early with a plan to varnish the prc team. When I picked the varnish up it was apparent that I didn’t…

Orc Linemen

Having spent a good part of the last two days painting I am feeling back like I am back in the saddle. I may even make the target for The New Cruelty. Well more or less. I can’t varnish them and therefore cannot stick the transfers on because right her…

All the thinking about Blood Bowl I have been doing over the last few days has got me back to the work bench. This came as a bit of a surprise to me but I figured it was time to not be sat in front of the laptop all day.Mostly it was Blood Bowl that go…

Last night was the big run out for Hammer of the Scots at the club, its appearance was met by sounds of appreciation as several mentioned an interest, and of course expressed a further interest in my being soundly thrashed being the only Scot in the cl…

More Tea, Vicar?

As it’s the Summer Holidays, I will be shuffling over to the other blog for the duration, where I will be doing the usual board, card and print and play wargaming stuff. This time I’ll be giving the Table Air Combat system a thrashing over th…
