Another entertaining day. The work bench is all change. I have managed to do a few bits and pieces but not as much as I would like. I’m going out to the 2300 game in a bit so thought I would do a quick update. I have been trimming some spears so that t…

I have finished the twelve Army of the Dead figures I got on eBay. I thought I’d post them alongside the ones I have already done. These followed the same pattern as last time. They were a quick easy paint job. The highlighting gives them a nice ethere…

I have been playing a lot of Hearthstone lately. It feeds a CCG itch that I always have and it does it via my iPad and computer which makes it easy to get in games. It also seems to have a much better matchmaking algorithm than a lot of online multiplayer games in that I […]
