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 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 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 03/06/18: Simulating a Tabletop

Hello!  For those who didn't follow my other blog, this will be a regular feature wherein each week, I'll be doing a quick pictorial roundup of hobby activity.  I expect these will be some of the most colourful posts on the blog! In the past week, I've been pressing on with painting my Pink Horrors… Continue reading Hobby Update 03/06/18: Simulating a Tabletop


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


What Makes a “Good” Year in the Hobby?

Having written a short article over at Hit Somebody which assesses my progress on my hobby resolutions for 2017 (spoilers, they ain't goin' great), I'm keen to consider how we think about a good or bad year in our hobby. Years ago, when I first started collecting board games, a good year might have been… Continue reading What Makes a “Good” Year in the Hobby?

Returning to Warhammer

I kind of lost touch with Games Workshop at some point and I don't know if it was more down to them or down to me.  Like many fellow miniature wargamers, Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 were my gateways into the larger hobby.  I started out with some Warhammer Orcs and Warhammer 40,000 Eldar (Ulthwé in my case) but quickly moved… Continue reading Returning to Warhammer

Painting Board Games

One of the things that originally appealed to me about Board Games was that they represent a singular product.  I'd played miniatures games before, such as Warhammer and Hordes, but the sheer amount of prep work for these games was increasingly offputting.  Board Games represented a play experience which could be used straight out of the box… Continue reading Painting Board Games

5 on Friday: 20/01/17

It’s Friday, and here on No Rerolls that means it’s time for a little digest of some of our favourite articles from the past week.  Of course, we’re slow readers, so don’t be surprised if there are some articles that are a little older – these are just some of the great articles we happen to have actually… Continue reading 5 on Friday: 20/01/17
