Earlier this year I picked up a Warband for Warhammer Underworlds, the Wurmspat. It's a three model warband from the Nurgle faction from Age of Sigmar. They remained unpainted, which is not all that remarkable for my models, but in the past week I took paintbrush in hand and painted them up. For me, I … Continue reading Something Wicked this way comes
Nostalgia hit me pretty hard this week when I opened a package to find 6 miniatures, Dwarf troll slayers, which I had owned when I was playing Warhammer Fantasy Battle as a young boy. The models were found by a friend of mine who was part of the gaming group at the time. When I … Continue reading Lessons from before
An interesting question popped up on the facebook group from a player looking to start playing Aeronautica Imperialis: what campaign setting should they go for based on factions and also the different missions available? The player wanted to collect Orks and Imperial Navy, so the obvious answer was to go for Rynn's World Air War … Continue reading Aeronautica Imperialis – Choosing a campaign
This is an update on how my Fyreslayers warband worked out for Warcry. I should disclose this is now the start of my Age of Sigmar Fyreslayers army (1,000 points) which I will continue working on over the coming months. Back to Warcry and my Fyreslayers ... All in all I'm really happy with these. … Continue reading Warcry: Fyreslayers march to the Eightpoints
I've been working on some Aeronautica Imperialis models over the past week and really enjoyed painting them. Aeronautica is a game I very much enjoy, but don't get to play all that often. It falls into that category of games of being 'niche', even though it is made by Games Workshop. The game plays very … Continue reading To the skies!

As we enter into lockdown, a few of us have decided to focus on a project to help us better manage the whole lockdown experience. A simple enough challenge is to paint … Continue reading Lockdown 2: Painting Fyreslayers
I've been playing a board game version of Dungeons and Dragons with my eldest son recently and we are having a lot of fun with it. The game is Dungeons and Dragons, the Temple of Elemental Evil (Adventure System Game) from Wizkids. Admittedly I have dialed the difficulty back a bit so that he can … Continue reading Finding our way to D&D
We played our first game of Warhammer 40,000 9th edition, it was a bloody affair. The latest edition of 40k includes a campaign system called 'Crusade' which has you take a few units in a small force and over the course of a number of encounters they gain combat experience and develop skills. It's very … Continue reading Enemy sighted, to battle!
Warhammer 40,000 and the Indomitus Crusade. For Warhammer 9th Edition I am working on a Blood Angels army, which is building upon a hobby project I had over the Coronavirus lockdown where I painted a group of Blood Angel veterans for the game Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team. Here is a gallery of images for the … Continue reading We are going on Crusade..
I have recently started playing Frostgrave with my two kids. I've had Frostgrave for over a year now and have even managed one or two games with friends, it's a great skirmish miniatures game in a high fantasy setting. The game uses a d20 system, but the mechanic is very straightforward of having a contested … Continue reading Visiting Frostgrave with my kids
