Well this year we are doing great thank you to everyone that has donated so far (over half way to the total). Excitingly I have some great giveaways coming up. Thanks to a lovely young man who posted what feels like his entire hobby collection to me to raise money for WAAC :O

Like what I am now raffling off is only about a third of what I am still sat ready to bounce on everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

The joys of a mechanized force ๐Ÿ™‚

Old skool terminators in arms with their daddies!!

Been awhile since we have an update, honestly been getting my head down as I am off to Warhammer World in November for a massive game of 40k. Imperium versus everyone else ๐Ÿ™‚ Which means we are all furiously painting to get up to speed, I am currently sat at about 3500 pts painted with still some big kits to go. Yes, yes I have Mortarion the beast of a model that he is so ๐Ÿ˜›

Lots happening since I last waffled, with some game companies shutting doors but the IP lives on with new companies which is super cool as Relics and Dystopian Wars have a place on peoples tables!

We then have the new Fallout game up for pre-order (not kickstarter :O ) which is looking pretty cool and I know a few people already very tempted by it.

Games This Week

No other games this week I am afraid. Although I have to say with all the death guard painting I am getting interested in my other systems again, as is always the case. Need to concentrate on one thing oh look at that over there…

Hobby This Week

Lots and lots of Death guard work has been going on, I will be ready for painting something else very very soon though. But I want a lot of stuff ready to go for November..

Make sure you check out my sponsors the best malifaux shop around and also carrier of many other shiny things ๐Ÿ™‚ all at a great price. Please order using the link below I get a warm glow and hopefully we get a bricks and mortar store sooner ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now the hope is that these will become signed Black Library prints and it is something we are working on achieving (if there is someone in particular you would like to sign but them in our direction ;))

Anyway for those that have not come across WAAC before a quick catch up.

In 2014 I lost my Mum to Cancer, the MacMillan Nurses were amazing in looking after my Mum but also my Dad and I wanted to give back to them. So far in the 3 years we have run this we have raised over ยฃ16000!!!

So I survived my first Dark Age event and I came last….Wooooooooooo a Spoon ๐Ÿ™‚

Honestly I enjoyed my 3 games and if not for 2 dice rolls I may have got some wins in, honest!

Game 1 vs Air Caste; This was a first go against Dragryi and also against the infamous Yovanka. In the end I couldn’t deal with her side-step and I wasnt fast enough (perhaps not aggressive enough) to deal with the Air Caste and I came away 6-10 down.

Game 2 vs Outcasts(Slavers); very tit-for-tat game which was particularly high on the kill count in which I lost 9-10. But came down to initiative roll, win that and I could have claimed a secondary mission to put me to 10! But alas I failed and Cabbie went down to 2 critical hits to take the game away from me.

Game 3 vs Forsaken (Saint Luke); another brutal game which had exploding firestorms and who doesn’t love a firework show! In the end my supreme war captain if he could have passed an above average armour save he would have survived Luke and been able to claim me some Secondary objectives but alas it was not to be and I went down 7-10.

Cabbie died in every game and I knew he was a risk as he just draws so much firepower his way but I have never seen him go down so often, the tank wasnt so tanky for this time.

I am looking forward to more events for Dark Age in the future and I have some Dragryi and Skarrd to get painted up and playing.

Games This Week

No other games this week I am afraid.

Hobby This Week

Work continues with the death guard, with some of the transports and tanks getting some love. I have also been on a basing mission trying to get my scenic bases ready for when I actually build some models..

Make sure you check out my sponsors the best malifaux shop around and also carrier of many other shiny things ๐Ÿ™‚ all at a great price. Please order using the link below I get a warm glow and hopefully we get a bricks and mortar store sooner ๐Ÿ˜‰

#MiniatureMonday is SIX

Well there are not many hashtags that last this long, so it is a credit to all the people still using it! Thank you all on Twitter who take part

#miniaturemonday is six years old today (well a few days out but I have been asleep) :0

Starting with a random idea many moons ago that was born of the #FriskyFriday idea but more paint and geek involved.

I am truly humbled that this is still going strong and covering many many different types of systems and models ๐Ÿ˜€

We truly have a fantastic thing for the community now and long may it continue!

So have a slice of cake on me

and show us your painting skills
