Catching Up

Hey folks,

It is time again for me to emerge from my blogging seclusion and post up some random things while the whim to blog lasts. I actually like doing articles, but when it starts feeling like "work" I tend to jump ship for a while. So what have I been up to you may be asking? Well, on the hobby front I have been all over the place as usual. 40k 8th edition has gone over with extreme indifference/hostility at the local hobby shop (and personally) so Kill Team and Shadow Wars continue to be the lone GW games being played. My own little act of dissent against 8th was purchasing the intro box to Warlord Games Beyond the Gates of Antares. I haven't managed to get a game in of it yet, but I like the looks of the rules. In a first for me I had the opportunity to paint a "commission" of sorts. The local Hobby Town got a store copy of Know No Fear and I offered to paint it. I will do a dedicated post about it but I have included a few pictures. Lastly, the release of Total War: Warhammer II got me fired up to dust off (literally) my High Elf army and do some painting. In a rare spurt of productivity I have managed to get around 50 models painted over the past few weeks including a 25 elf Sea Guard regiment and roughly 30 Spearmen and Archers. This has gotten 3 entire regiments completed which is without a doubt the most progress on Fantasy that I have had in a very long time.

If you want to see some of the battles I have taken part in head on over to The Neverness Hobby Chronicle and Da Long Wayz Dezert Groop for some battle reports. Until next time, folk! Happy hobby!
