Hobby Update 05/08/18: Burn the Gooleyman!

The week started with me missing the deadline for the latest round of painting for the club's slow-grow league.  I was not surprised to miss the deadline - I usually do.  I'm not doing well in keeping up with the timescales, but I'm happy with how the painting is going, overall.  it's good for me!… Continue reading Hobby Update 05/08/18: Burn the Gooleyman!

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

First Game of Warhammer 40,000: 8th Ed

With a slow grow league about to start at our local club, I was very keen to try out the latest edition of 40K, largely so that my first game would not be one of the league matches.  With this in mind, a friend and I set up a board in my games room and… Continue reading First Game of Warhammer 40,000: 8th Ed

Building Little Lands with Burnt Wood – Part 1: The City of the Damned

Like many gamers who have been with Games Workshop since the 90s or earlier, the Specialist Games line holds a special(ist?) place in my heart.  Blood Bowl is a game I have played for many years, having originally bought my copy of the third edition from the clearance section of a Highlands branch of Toymaster in… Continue reading Building Little Lands with Burnt Wood – Part 1: The City of the Damned

First Games of Age of Sigmar: Skirmish

At the weekend, I attended a local event at which we played Age of Sigmar: Skirmish.  The book for this has been out for a while, but I'd never gotten around to actually giving it a go, and there were several people at the local club that felt the same. It was agreed that we would… Continue reading First Games of Age of Sigmar: Skirmish

May the Shadow War Continue

I was delighted when Games Workshop made the decision to bring back Necromunda.  I had never really gotten into the game first time around; Blood Bowl and Mordheim had been more my flavour of GW game.  That said, I loved the aesthetic of Necromunda, and I know plenty of people who truly adored the game.  I want to play it.… Continue reading May the Shadow War Continue

Wyrd Previews Wyrdscapes Terrain

I'd heard that Wyrd was coming out with a range of terrain for Malifaux, but I was very excited this week to finally see a preview of the terrain.  Games like Malifaux rely heavily on terrain for game balance.  If you put insufficient terrain on the table, ranged crews are suddenly incredibly powerful as others are starved… Continue reading Wyrd Previews Wyrdscapes Terrain

Malifaux: Hired Swords or Sisters Doin' it for Themselves

In my first completed miniatures of the new year, here are the models from the Hired Swords box for Malifaux: Not the greatest painting ever, but I'm just glad they're done, as I like these ladies a lot.  Have played with them a few times and they do not disappoint.  I love how the two… Continue reading Malifaux: Hired Swords or Sisters Doin' it for Themselves

Peter Cushing’s Toy Soldiers

I saw this a few years ago, and I'm sure that many or most wargamers will have seen it at some point, but it seems to be doing the rounds again in a few of the Facebook groups that I frequent.  This is a profile of Peter Cushing (star of many a Hammer Horror film,… Continue reading Peter Cushing’s Toy Soldiers

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: 03/11/17
