Hobby update week 6 - I need to paint something other than purple!



Greetings all, welcome to week 6's hobby update for 2018! I'm still all about Squaduary at the moment, and I'm still settling into finding a new routine for posting and painting, so please bear with me for a while as the blog settles down with my new job. Given my ridiculous pledge for Squaduary though I've found little time in the evenings to write new posts and get myself prepared for the week ahead so you'll have to make do with this kind of thing for a bit!

Funny Friday - Swarm!


Is 8th edition the most abstract edition we've ever played?



Greetings all, feels like an age since I've written a piece like this for the blog! I was reading a post the other day on the excellent March of the Damned, and in adding a comment to the bottom of the post, I got to thinking about 8th edition and how its rules represent things on the tabletop, and what really struck me was how the rules across the editions change, and how they represent the conceptual parts of the game overall.

Hobby update 2018 Week 4


Greetings all, welcome to week 4 of the year and my hobby update! It's been a quieter week this week I'm afraid due to real life - I've changed jobs and started at my new place today. What that means is I spent much of the weekend either celebrating with people I've know for as many as 15 years, or recovering from those celebrations/preparing for commuting to work for the first time in my life. Still, things progressed and continue to do so!
