So the death of 40K as we know continues 🙂 this time with the Eldar models.. Boy do they look sexy! So of the stuff I am hearing certainly has me excited and look forward to see what else happens as Grumpy Boy heads towards Terra.

Other news is a new KS for Relic Knights, now I was starting to flirt with the game hadn’t dipped in but was watching from the outside. Now hearing a version 2 is coming by KS is interesting, yes it isn’t a CMON led one so the madness of the first one may not happen.

However the name still leads to cries on Twitter occasionally because of that first one so not sure how people will judge not it is Ninja Division doing the leg work. Time will tell, I probably wont be backing because I never usually do KS but I shall continue to watch 😉

Games This Week

No games this week due to work and the like but I do have a fun packed Sunday coming up with much madness to be had.

Hobby This Week

Back painting Ressers after a long break as I have not had the time. So hopefully I can get a wriggle on with them now. Just waiting on magnets as well so I can finish off my DFC fleets ready for a lick of paint on them as well.

Make sure you check out my sponsors the best malifaux shop around and also carrier of many other shiny things 🙂 all at a great price. Please order using the link below I get a warm glow and hopefully we get a bricks and mortar store sooner 😉

Its nearly Christams….the shiniest time of year 😉

Otherside

We are getting close to the Kickstarter launched by Wyrd for their new game. So some initial thoughts about something we don’t know much about 😉

The factions all sound cool and the artwork has the warm fuzzy glow of familiarity about it 🙂

The larger skirmish to army scale is fine, looks like lots of big stompy things as well which is cool. However, it wouldn’t be an opinion if there wasnt some negatives. Playing on a 6×4 I find restrictive at the moment due to kids toys everywhere, max 4×4 is what I am preferring. It is amazing how much that extra 2ft can be difficult.

The single cast models again a lot of people are put off by, I am going to be interested to see how they achieve that.  Surely it is only for the infantry as those big robots would be horrible things to clean up and paint if 1 piece!

Finally it is a KS which is all well and good, for something so new and different from their normal IP i don’t play wyrd for going for the relative safety of KS. But why?! why run a KS other the christmas period?!!!!

It starts on the 14th of December you would assume at least 4 weeks at the minimum. What would possess them to run it now? OK people may have spends due to present after Christmas but then it doesn’t give you long for the stretch goals these big projects have in general. Screams madness to me, but what do I know 🙂 anyway good luck to them and I am sure I will be tempted at some point as I am a bit of a hobby magp……SQUIRREL!!!

Blood Bowl

Finally got to play BB this week, the mechanic is simple an easy to learn as the whole game appears to be. But for me not sure it tickles my spot, didn’t leave me wanting more. Which is a shame as the new sculpts are dam sexy!

Games This Week

Got a game with Molly this week against a Von Schill crew. Was a hard slog but in the end came up with a 3-3 draw.

Hobby This Week

Painting my K3 still plus maybe some Zipp action as well if I get organised..

I am back, after a decent break while I come to terms with being a dad again (sleep is for the weak). Much has happened in that time I have been away so time for a catch up and see where that goes…

I have been reading the new malifaux book 🙂  Oh the shiny soooo much shiny!!! I will resist I will resist!! Unrelated note I now have a Nellie crew not sure how that happened..

GW is going back to the 80s with the reintroduction of the Genestealer cult models. With perhaps the most orky non-ork vehicle ever..

I am enjoying these little releases of GW at moment lots of small self-contained ‘factions’ which mean collecting easier than masses of the same stuff.

They are also dropping Blood bowl back into existence which is surprising, I never played the game in the past and not sure if I want to go back into such things, but I am weak so who knows…

But for now I must leave you and brood on a roof somewhere as I start to paint my BMG Suicide Squad boxset.

In no way is this a new…..honest

Games This Week

Slowly getting into the groove with Faux again with a few games and playing around with some other systems as well.

Hobby This Week

So the K3 for dark age is done as are my engineers for guild ball. Moving onto the Joker crew I have and some faux as well because I always have faux to paint 🙂

Not much happening on the ranch this week, although the Batman Game Suicide Squad Box has finally gone on pre-order and my word is it a box of goodies.

Some of will know I have been flirting with this game for a long time with at least one failed start a few years ago.

But very much like Infinity a new edition and better translations seems to make all the difference 🙂 so I may MAY be getting the new box, we shall see what other shiny grabs me

Games This Week

Started a Vassal Campaign again, aiming to get the Hoffman out there so starting Ryle. Lost the first game but when against Rusty Alyce and 2 Relic hammers I will take a 1 point loss

Hobby This Week

Work has started on my Bakemono from the Bushido range, hopefully get them sorted soon. I also appear to have some Sylvaneth to build….no idea how that happened.

So it has happened again, I havent burnt out on a game! It may not surprise anyone but after the majority of this year. I have fallen out with Guild Ball! It was always going to happen, it happened with Malifaux!!

So for now you may notice a slow down on GB content as I look elsewhere for my fix 🙂 and boy do I appear to have plenty on my plate :S

Malifaux is back and running (although be sensible not to burn out), Bushido is moving along nicely so expect more chatter about that. Dark Age is growing as well and hopefully they sort out the UK distribution as the game has HUGE potential. I am also eyeing up Batman game as well as the system in the new rulebook makes more sense than it use to and sounds fun.

More shocking is I am back on the AoS bandwagon, the aim is to finish the Stormcast I have BUT I also have some trees coming as the let’s get started Sylvaneth box with the treeman in actually gets me to 2000pts in the new point system! Dammit all those years of failing to collect an army as I lose interest after 500pts is no long an issue……Down the rabbit hole we go.

Hobby This Week

Close to getting a fair amount of the JD crew sorted which is cool. Think I am going to start my Bushido after that and see how I get on.

Beared-itorial – 6 years old

Happy Birthday me

It has now been 6 years SIX YEARS (or nearly 2500 posts)!!! I have been running this blog, that is a ridiculous amount of time and yet I still don’t have global domination… Maybe next year.

A lot has happened in the last year, but at least I still keep going (gone are the days of 2 posts a day, yes I use to post twice a day everyday at one point o_O) and more importantly I enjoy doing this even if only 3 of you read this its better than just me shouting into the wind..

WAAC has been an amazing success over the last 3 years and I thank every single one of you for taking part and raising cash for MacMillan! £15000 in 3 years is just mind-boggling to me 🙂

Games This Week

First game of Bushido is in the bag and well, you can check it out on the Infinity Idiots at some point.. I lost which is no great surprised..

Hobby This Week

More work on the JD crew I have started and the backlog grows, no idea what I will paint next.

From this week I will be reducing the number of posts I do a week, as with a new child on the way I want to stay active but not be driven to release loads of content. So I will be going down to 4 posts a week instead of 5 and see how we get on.
