Hobby Update 10/06/18: In Service of Blibdoolpoolp

This week started out with me meeting a new group of Dungeons & Dragons players and starting a new game with them.  I found this group on Facebook as they were looking to get going.  I'm usually nervous about meeting new people, but I'm very glad I went along to this as I really enjoyed… Continue reading Hobby Update 10/06/18: In Service of Blibdoolpoolp

Games Workshop's Painting Videos

I'm not the strongest painter around.  I can do some of the basics, but I would like to improve and I reckon that the best thing I could do would be to work on my basic techniques and really get those down solidly before trying anything more complex.   To this end, I am finding the… Continue reading Games Workshop's Painting Videos

Prioritising Miniatures Projects For 2018

I have a lot of unpainted Miniatures.  I've written about this before.  I'm also not always the most motivated to paint, but I've managed to do a little more this year than I had in the previous few years. In the interests of maintaining my focus and getting me on track early this year, here… Continue reading Prioritising Miniatures Projects For 2018

Paranoia One-Shot: Welcome to Alpha Complex (Part 1)

This week, I cracked open the second hand copy of the second edition of Paranoia that I picked up from Oxfam a few months back.  What followed was an evening of slapstick comedy, general mistrust, outright betrayal and excessive bureaucracy. Paranoia sees a group of player living in a dystopian future not unlike that envisaged… Continue reading Paranoia One-Shot: Welcome to Alpha Complex (Part 1)

The Dresden Files RPG: Session 5

This week, we returned to our much-delayed Dresden Files Roleplaying Game campaign.  Although the events of the session took place over a relatively short period of in-game time, our play was dense with action and full of laughter. Last time, we left off in the midst of a fight with a toad-like demon that was proving… Continue reading The Dresden Files RPG: Session 5

The Dresden Files RPG: Session 4

On Thursday, after taking a week off from the group, we had out fourth session of our The Dresden Files Roleplaying Game campaign.  It started off well for the group, with their missing member being unceremoniously dumped outside their offices, having been abducted by a local drug gang as a warning. The group then held a… Continue reading The Dresden Files RPG: Session 4
