Daemon Hedgehogs (4th Jan 2020)

Yeah, you read that right...Daemon Hedgehogs...I found these little guys on.. eBay...? or Amazon...? I don't even remember now. It was a couple bucks for a bag of them. When they arrived a week or so ago, I got this idea that I'd make a couple of ... Read More

December 2019 Games - Part Two - The HOLIDAZE (1st Jan 2020)

Game Plan 2020 - Q1 Plans (27th Dec 2019)

54mm!? (17th Dec 2019)

Sometimes the heavily caffeinated, squirrel on speed that lives in my head and drives about in this flesh-mech you all know as "Tim" makes some pretty poor decisions...Like; "Hey, we should put together an entire maniple of imperial titans in regular 28mm ... Read More

The Ratskin Hoarde (16th Dec 2019)

It all started with Skeevy McGee, see? His best friend's sister's boyfriend, knew this kid that talked to this Ratskin Scout who said his tribe came across a whole pile of archaeotech devices waaaaaaay down by the hive bottom, like, deeper than th ... Read More

El Akarm Market Massacre (2nd Dec 2019)

October AND November Games (30th Nov 2019)

I didn't play a LOT of games in October...I know it looks like there are a lot of has-marks on the 13th and 14th - but that represents one or two plays of the same game, each logged separately, with a few expansions being use with each...As previously ... Read More

The Dreaded Ambull Hulk (30th Nov 2019)

So I FINALLY got some of my Blackstone Fortress stuff done! Did I get some of the Heroes done? Nope. Did I get some of the generic baddies for beginner/basic encounters done? Nope. Infact, I painted three of the miniatures that are the LEAST USEFUL miniat ... Read More

Void Ships of the 41st Millennium (25th Nov 2019)

Retribution! (25th Nov 2019)

Yesterday evening Jacob swung by to have a go at Necromunda. We've played a bit of Kill Team, but he hadn't tried out Necromunda yet...After last week's fiasco, the One-Eyed Red Snakes were DESPERATE to exact some retribution (and claw back a ... Read More

For All Those Who Seek Redemption (25th Nov 2019)

Durango Pipe Moors - a House Cawdor Gang (25th Nov 2019)

Tallarn Taurox (and Micro-Mini Shadowsword!) (20th Nov 2019)

I... I'm not sure I could explain the convoluted thought process that brought this onto the table to be finished. It could probably be summed up in two words: Squirrel Brain. (If a few more words were allowed: Highly Caffeinated Squirrel on Crystal Me ... Read More

A Few New Things for 40K/Necromunda (18th Nov 2019)

These are a few things I've finished up over the last few days (or, in one case, weeks) that I haven't gotten to posting yet...This is an objective marker for 40K. I thought I'd jazz up my objective markers a bit as tokens or a pile of barrels ... Read More

Whit's Fur Ye'll No Go Past Ye (8th Nov 2019)

Necromunda Re-Basing Project (31st Oct 2019)

Never say "Never!"I have learned this all too well, so many times over.I've never really been overly fond of plastic slotta bases - at least with metal figures. They were too light and I felt they made the over all model top heavy. I also thought they ... Read More

Foxy Wizard Vixen for Burrows and Badgers (24th Oct 2019)

I finished up the first of the critters I'm working on for Burrows and Badgers. Oddly, this isn't even for the warband I was planning for myself!? I'm working on a band of Highland Bunnies for myself. But I got it in my head to do some foxes f ... Read More

Phoenix Clan for Dragon Rampant (21st Oct 2019)

Lion Clan for Dragon Rampant (18th Oct 2019)

Somehow I got thinking about my collection of East Asian Fantasy collection (I think it was probably from seeing the "Daimyo" expansion in the current Reaper Bones Kickstarter...?). I had previously planned to do Hordes of the Things armies for each of th ... Read More

Burrows and Badgers (16th Oct 2019)

Some time ago, Keira picked up Burrows and Badgers from Osprey Games - because cutesy, anthropomorphic critters! Who could resist!Occasionally, she hints at wanting to play it.I've had only the briefest of looks at the game - it is HER game, afte ... Read More

Rescue Mission - Bronze Gates Campaign (15th Oct 2019)

Escort Mission - Bronze Gates Campaign (15th Oct 2019)

Battle for the Bronze Gates (15th Oct 2019)

Even though the Necromunda Game Weekend hadn't gone exactly as planned, on Sunday afternoon I did challenge Finnegan's Average Joes Genestealer Cult for control of the Bronze Gates - the toll crossing that gives it's name to the entire region. ... Read More

The (Not-So-)Necromunda Game Weekend (15th Oct 2019)

Generally speaking, I plan two big "events" a year. One is the Wargaming Weekend in February - which started out as my wargaming birthday bash (a one-evening/afternoon game held for local friends) but then evolved into a wargaming weekend at the end of Fe ... Read More

John's Orc Blood Bowl Team/Warband (11th Oct 2019)

STILL More Mistakes Were Made (8th Oct 2019)

Although this wasn't nearly so costly as some of the previous mistakes...and it didn't involve Eldar...(or Imperial Guard..)I ordered a bunch of plastic stuff from Russia...I'm not sure what I was thinking...Mouslings - seem to all be later re ... Read More

Wooden Peg Warriors (25th Sep 2019)

Because I don't have enough projects on the go, I thought it might be fun to paint up some wooden peg characters. I thought the kids might be into it as well, especially Keira. She is ALL ABOUT making things these days. Every single day she sews or kn ... Read More

So... I Had an Idea... (24th Sep 2019)

A Few More Genestealer Cultists (24th Sep 2019)

Just a quick post - I cranked out a few more Genestealer Cultists for Finnegan the other evening. His cult has been slightly more successful in our Necromunda Campaign and was in need of new cult members, but just wasn't getting to painting them up.Th ... Read More

Asuryani Force for Epic Apocalypse (21st Sep 2019)

I was going to include this in my previous painting update post, but it ended up being so much that I felt it deserved a whole post of its own.I've been toying with the idea of using the new Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse rules with my "Epic Scale" 40K ... Read More

An Unusual Assortment of Odd and Sundry Items (21st Sep 2019)

I've been painting. Some of it's been further experiments with Contrast® paints.So... eight and a half years ago I bought a pile of these dirt cheap 1/35 scale Maschinen Krieger (Ma.K) models... and haven't really done anything with them. Thro ... Read More

The Pit (16th Sep 2019)

For them which comes from below, it seemed only natural and right that they should try to seize control of the Mine Workings - it does stretch down into their realm and impinge on the personal space of the Patriarch which rules over all of them. The sneak ... Read More

September Games - Week Two (15th Sep 2019)

Still doing pretty good on the SECOND week of my September Game-A-Day Challenge...Sunday, 8 September 2019We started our long anticipated Necromunda Dominion Campaign this evening!There is some background and details of the starting gangs and territories ... Read More
