No games played this week, as I was beign social  (I know right) and had podcast editing to do. Its hard work making us sound that bad..

Much painting was done and much pondering was done on new masters.

So why do I do it to myself? always looking at new masters/factions/games. The truth is I don’t know, I have always had an active imagination as I am sure many wargamers also have, it’s why we can accept plastic/metal models are in a life or death situation and how we can create some stunning pieces of art (well the good painters can anyway, how I hate them).

But perhaps this is also why so many are afflicted with #HobbyADD?

If left to your own devices how often do you start thinking wouldn’t it be cool if there was a Frozen theme Perdita crew to make my little girl giggle or clearly all the mindless zombies need to be in office attire and Nicodem converted into a CEO.

So what is the answer to this? Simple don’t work/drive/have kids/partner etc.. when we are bored we start thinking and that is when the trouble starts..

So cast off your family and all work so you can concentrate on all those models you have in your boxes/cupboards/under the bed.. so then and only then can you concentrate on what you have rather than new shiny things.

Obviously this would only work if your boss, partner agree and the kids leave you alone…

Think we are screwed, anyway back ressers….I mean Guild I MEAN Gremlins

WAAC T-Shirts

Its pay weekend so why not help out WAAC with your very own T-Shirts from here: WAAC T-SHIRT

Nythera comes

The Worldwide Wyrd event is gearing up, I have signed up for some fun as I will be taking part in both a realfaux and a vassalfaux campaign :) which means the might of the gremlins will be amazing.

To be fair it was touch and go between what faction I was actually going to run but the little guys won out in the end…

GenCon Watch

The Gremlins have arrived!! WOOO

Hobby This Week

So completed first 6 members of the butchers, now to wait for some union players to show up see IF I can get them painted in time :) I may have started painting some constructs as well…rather than the sensible Merc lists I have for BCB.

I am back and from the looks of things nothing major has happened :)

Yes GenCon was all big and shiny (new attendance record apparently) and much fun was had from the looks of things.

Age of Sigmar continues although still only with Sigmarites being new shiny models, which is a shame!

WAAC

Well we did it again, target hit before (just about) August happened, which again is just amazing. Thank you everyone so far that has helped/donated to WAAC.

Over £11000 raised in 2 years so far is no mean feat!

Wow, I am sure we have all seen what Age of Sigmar has done to the community. The F&A guys will be releasing an episode covering it all very soon. So I can’t be bothered repeating myself, except to say I am watching how this all develops as my interest is interested.

Going to be a fun few months I feel..

Guild Ball

I am taking part in the GB vassal league organised by Liam. Head over to the forums for more info.

So far the mighty Butchers have managed to get 2 wins out of 2 which is pretty good :) admittedly a couple of fluke dice rolls my win allowed me to win, but you wont hear me complain..

Hobby This Week

I have been bust finishing of Ophelia, and now started some more Nephilim for the glory of Neverborn..

Busy busy week on the news front, first up Wyrd.

We have the artwork for the Crossroads 7 band which all look pretty cool in the main. Not sure about the lead singer being hugged by what look like sorrows.

But I suppose give them long hair and him a microphone and we have a lead singer with his groupies.

Next we have the much waited on starter set for Malifaux;

Now I really dig it’s all new models and they are all mercs so you are not limited to keeping them in faction of Guild and Neverborn.

With everything in the box as well it is only a good thing to go with. A lot has been said about how a bit dull the Scion is but you know what he isn’t that bad really probably one piece job. But more importantly Neverborn get more guns ;)

Sigmar Returns

Well what to say about Age of Sigmar, this has to be the biggest news in my long gaming life the last time something so tectonically changing happen was the move to white metal from lead and GW had a sale to shift old stock (yes I am that old)..

As you read this I am sure we will be much more enlightened by this weeks issue of WD.

I am interested I can not deny it, the sigmar super knights are looking very very cool. Even after some resistance the Chaos stuff is probably some of the best non-FW stuff I have seen come out of Nottingham.

What do the future holds? Who knows but it will be fun seeing it unfold.

One thing I will say is the apparent removal of army books which would be a crying shame as love them and always have.

Hobby This Week

Well it was someones birthday recently which means I have a few extra odds and ends. But finally I have Brewmaster and I must say some of the most characterful models I have seen, worth the wait.

So mainly I have building much plastic. I am getting close to being done with the Ophelia crew as well, question is what next..

Its a slow week this week, I dont have much to say. Too muggy (starting to sound like Kev).

So instead of some deep meaningful content (stop laughing) have some random pictures instead..

Hobby This Week

At the moment I am all over the shop as far as painting goes :( I may need to do some refocusing to get on with. Too much on the list at the moment.

Well Wyrd dropped the exciting pictures of what may (ships in dock willing) be at GenCon this year obviously the Nightmare Collette was cool but;

Finally we have Jack Daw coming this would have me very excited except well WONG! the gremlin wizard is here at last bringing his bugs and a wrestler because why not!

Now this does bring up an issue as I have a Wong from M1E so this would mean I have 2 sculpts that are identical which is a shame. However after a chat with McPiggish on Twitter I have an idea, the second Wong will be wong after his Poof! trigger. In otherwords he will be painted like this;

In other news the Age of Sigmar rumours are gathering pace and they seem interesting. The whole idea seems very out of left field and they have certainly got the gaming antenna waving, however I am still not that tempted to dip back into fantasy. Time will tell I suppose but certainly interesting times ahead.

As you all know #MiniatureMonday is still going strong but we have a new contender to the throne….well more focussing point than show off.

The #FDChallenge is here (Listen to the guys), in which you set a goal to paint/build something for the week on a Monday and see if you reach said goal the following Monday. Nice and easy for those stuck in a rut or just need to focus on one piece instead of Hobby ADDing all over the place.

Hobby This Week
