Hobby update week 18 – a wanderer returns

Posted on May 8th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Hi all! Turns out I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth after all (though I do spend most of my days now below sea level).

In truth, I’ve been finding less time for hobby related stuff with my new job, and the blog is the thing that’s taken the hit I’m afraid, so posts will be more sporadic for a while I think.

Posted on March 5th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Greetings all, welcome to my latest glimpse into my hobby world. This week’s a fairly quiet one I’m afraid, mainly because I don’t want to repeat all the pics from Squaduary that I posted last week.

Hobby update 2018 Week 4

Posted on January 29th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Greetings all, welcome to week 4 of the year and my hobby update! It’s been a quieter week this week I’m afraid due to real life – I’ve changed jobs and started at my new place today. What that means is I spent much of the weekend either celebrating with people I’ve know for as many as 15 years, or recovering from those celebrations/preparing for commuting to work for the first time in my life. Still, things progressed and continue to do so!

Greetings all, 
I’ve got a brief battle report for you all today, from my league game last night. Our league isn’t prescriptive about game sizes or fixed lists etc, so I agreed to play a 2000pt game against Andy H and his Orks.

Chapter Approved mission review – Recon

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

Greetings all, last night I got my first game in with the new missions from Chapter Approved, my opponent (Dave) and I played the recon maelstrom mission, so I thought I’d do a detailed review of the mission and my thoughts on how it changes things up, along with a brief section on what actually happened in the game.

Hobby update – Craftworld and Dusk Knight reinforcements.

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

Hi all,
It’s Monday again so that must mean updates on my hobby progress! This week real life has intruded a little so I’ve not got quite as much done as I normally would, however I did get some time to myself on Saturday night and Sunday to crack on with assembling the reinforcements I’ve picked up from my birthday funds.

Hobby update – 27-11-17

Posted on November 27th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Greetings all,
It’s been a couple of weeks since I last did a hobby update, so I figured I’d let you know where I was with everything. First up though, it’s my birthday at some point in the next 7 days, so I’m hoping that next week I’ll have a nice hobby haul to show you all!

In the meantime, please take a hop on over to my sister blog, the Grim Dark Brotherhood, where I’m starting to add more regular content now in terms of a tale of 3 gamers that we’re embarking on. You’ll soon even be able to see me in video format on our youtube channel, but I’ll blow all the trumpets and ring the bells etc when that launches.

List review – Dusk Knights 2000pts

Posted on November 14th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hi guys,
I thought I’d stick up a post covering the list that I took to Never Mind the BlogWars last weekend. Overall I did ok, nothing spectacular, but as my last post on the subject showed, I was actually only outscored in terms of sheer amount killed by 2 of the top 4 players, and only the 3 of us managed that 86% kill ratio or higher (the top player actually managed 95.65%).

That being said, my performance on maelstrom objectives was poor (in part due to some shocking card draws) in two of my games and lower than I’ve come to expect from this list in the third. I decided therefore to do a review of my list in similar vein to those Mike at St Andrews Wargaming does when he attends a tournament.

What follows therefore is a quick brief on the tournament, my results and the important bits from the weekend, plus a few thoughts on where I’ll be taking the Dusk Knights from here and what’s next on my plate.

Hobby update and #dreadtober

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

Hi all, just a very brief update today – I’ve been distracted by RL stuff I’m afraid. Still, I’ve had time to get work in on some new objective markers, my dreadnoughts for #dreadtober (which are now finished) and some commission stuff, though I’ve realised that without their mounts, the bloodbletters look like they’re dancing to Gangnam Style!
