Experiments in 3D Printing: First Experiences, Frustrations and Projects

My 3D printer last week. It took a little while to get to me, coming from the Netherlands, but it arrived eventually and we managed to set it up and get going pretty quickly. I went for a Creality Ender 3, based largely on price and several recommendations from friends. We printed off an initial… Continue reading Experiments in 3D Printing: First Experiences, Frustrations and Projects

Peer Pressure Powered Painting

Lockdown: It's getting old, innit? As someone who is now firmly working from home, I'm actually finding my days a lot fuller than I'd expected.  I spend a lot of time working, attending meetings, planning and the like.  This is occasionally interspersed with short breaks on YouTube, Netflix or World of Warcraft.  Sometimes, and this… Continue reading Peer Pressure Powered Painting

New Year, New(ish) Army: Pestilens

I mentioned in a previous post that one of my goals for the coming year is to get some Skaven done! I've had unpainted Skaven for years and, despite their classic, sprue-grey colour scheme, they saw a fair bit of play in 8th edition, back when I was fielding units of 100 or so Skaven… Continue reading New Year, New(ish) Army: Pestilens

Realistic Expectations: Making a Dent in the Pile of Shame in 2020

I have played and collected Games Workshop games and miniatures since the mid-90s. Along the way, I've also picked up a number of miniatures from other companies. I have some Privateer Press, some Infinity, an Italian fleet for Dystopian Wars, a ton of Malifaux... I like miniatures. I like collecting them. I like playing with… Continue reading Realistic Expectations: Making a Dent in the Pile of Shame in 2020

A Weekend’s Building

This weekend, I spent much of my time putting together some MDF buildings and accessories from TTCombat.  I often sing the praises of TTCombat in the 5 on Friday segments, where I've frequently shared their new releases. The first item I spent some time on was their Yu Pagoda set, along with one of the… Continue reading A Weekend’s Building

Starting a New Army: Adeptus Mechanicus

It's been a long time since I've done any painting for 40K or Warhammer or... anything, really...  I did some work on some Ariadna for Infinity about a year ago and another pile of Pink Horrors.  I like Pink Horrors, but that was a LOT of pink to paint... Given that I am a slow,… Continue reading Starting a New Army: Adeptus Mechanicus

Holiday Hobbying: Part 2

We spent the last few days in London. We came down for a family wedding but decided to stay on and explore a bit. We also had a couple of nice things booked. Oh, and I am the worst at taking photos, so lots of images from Google in this post... On the night we… Continue reading Holiday Hobbying: Part 2

Holiday Hobbying: Part 1

Hallo! I am out and about at the moment, visiting family and re-engaging with (relatively) metropolitan life in the Central Belt of Scotland... Yeah, it's really confirming that I'm happier up beyond the wall. But it's still a nice change of scenery for a short time. In previous years I've brought too many games with… Continue reading Holiday Hobbying: Part 1

Hobby Update 05/08/18: Burn the Gooleyman!

The week started with me missing the deadline for the latest round of painting for the club's slow-grow league.  I was not surprised to miss the deadline - I usually do.  I'm not doing well in keeping up with the timescales, but I'm happy with how the painting is going, overall.  it's good for me!… Continue reading Hobby Update 05/08/18: Burn the Gooleyman!
