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

I started out with some Warhammer Orcs and Warhammer 40,000 Eldar (Ulthwé in my case) but quickly moved… Continue reading Returning to Warhammer

Board Games represented a play experience which could be used straight out of the box… Continue reading Painting Board Games
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
