2020 In Review and Goals for 2021

Let's just start off by saying that we 2020 didn't really go as expected for any of us. This blog is all about celebrating the hobby, so I'm not going to get bogged down in lockdowns, work stuff, and all that, nor the difficulties in not getting to see family or friends. The past few… Continue reading 2020 In Review and Goals for 2021

The Claws of Man: Competition Progress

Why do I leave things so late? I got off to a good start with this contest, but it's really fallen away. It's only been today that I've returned to it and actually put brush to miniature. Here's what I have so far, in term of a colour scheme: A bit bland, perhaps, but it… Continue reading The Claws of Man: Competition Progress

Paint and Procrastination: Maintaining Motivation

I was delighted yesterday to post the latest batch of models for my Necron army. It felt really good to finish up the models and then share them on here, just as it did with the first batch. The scheme that I'm following is really simple, but also really effective. It's also been a while… Continue reading Paint and Procrastination: Maintaining Motivation

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

Hobby Update: A Month Into 2019

Well, January was pretty quick, wasn't it?  Hard to believe we're more than a month into 2019.  It's been a busy month, too. Hobby-wise, I've not done a huge amount.  I have managed to get in a couple of games of Terraforming Mars.  I played with a group at one of our Northern Knights sessions… Continue reading Hobby Update: A Month Into 2019

Hobby Update 02/09/18: Terraforming the Sword Coast

There was no '5 on Friday' this week as I've been rather pressed for time, and so have not been reading many blog posts.  I considered doing this on Friday afternoon, between getting home from work and people arriving for games, but I fell asleep!  After my unplanned nap, my focus was on a bit… Continue reading Hobby Update 02/09/18: Terraforming the Sword Coast

Hobby Update 26/08/18: Kings of Pandemic

We gave the Hobby update a skip last week, so it's a double feature today! Last Monday, we broke out a few games down in Lybster.  We started off with some Pandemic.  I was the only one who'd played the game before, but it actually went quite well.  We kept a good handle on the… Continue reading Hobby Update 26/08/18: Kings of Pandemic
