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

NoRerolls’ Best Posts of 2019

We're nearly at the end of the year, commonly accepted as a time of reflection.  In that spirit, and following a more general "best of" post last week, let's take a look at some of my favourite posts from this blog over the past year. Each post title will be followed by its featured image… Continue reading NoRerolls’ Best Posts of 2019

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

Hobby Update 12/08/18: Putting One’s House in Order

The week started with the best of intentions - a good tidy up!  The focus was on my games room and the little room that leads off from it.  The initial focus was on the miniatures - sorting them and tidying: I ended up getting rid of some old stuff I know I'd never look… Continue reading Hobby Update 12/08/18: Putting One’s House in Order

Hobby Update 22/07/18: Red Wash Over Pink

There's not been much goin' on this week.  As with last week, I have been visiting family, but I had a lot less hobby time this week. What time I did have was used for painting as I keep on keeping on with my Tzeentch Daemons.  I've not been making quick progress up to now,… Continue reading Hobby Update 22/07/18: Red Wash Over Pink

Hobby Update 08/07/18: Prepping Paranoia

The week began with a bit of a craft project.  I printed up a deck of cards to use in my Wednesday game of Paranoia.  In addition to the printed cards, I used some other supplies.  These were a selection of sleeves and some old Magic lands to put behind the prints to give them… Continue reading Hobby Update 08/07/18: Prepping Paranoia

Hobby Update 01/07/18: Onward to Strahd

A little late this week, but then I've not really done all that much, hobby-wise, apart from a bit of D&D. The first of these sessions was my Lybster group.  We stormed a bandit outpost that we really had no business storming.  It didn't help that several members of the group did not follow the… Continue reading Hobby Update 01/07/18: Onward to Strahd
