Progress Update – May to August 2022

As expected, fatherhood has somewhat diminished my hobby time and many of my energies have been diverted to aspects of the hobby that can be done through books or my phone, reading, researching, planning, etc. I've also begun dabbling a bit more in play by post RPG games which has been fun, as well as … Continue reading Progress Update – May to August 2022

More Trouble in the Colonies! AWI with Sharp Practice

I had a bit of free time this afternoon and with the table still set up thought I'd have another crack at the Sharp Practice AWI scenario. Turns out I was correct on the rules first time round and units can't deploy and move but can deploy and perform other actions which is where the … Continue reading More Trouble in the Colonies!

Trouble in the Colonies! AWI with Sharp Practice

Having put together a couple of skirmish forces for the AWI, I was able to get them onto the table for a test game of TooFatLardies Sharp Practice. While I made a few mistakes as I went, for the most part things ran pretty smoothly and I enjoyed the game. I hope to get a … Continue reading Trouble in the Colonies! AWI with Sharp Practice

Progress Update – March 2022

To start out the month I got a game with the Zombicide figures painted up last month.The game setup: Our intrepid heroes: Splitting up was a bad idea: Nelly shows a Necromancer who's boss: The horde descends: Rescuing a fallen comrade: Burn them with fire! Painting wise, I decided to tackle the American War of … Continue reading Progress Update – March 2022

Progress Update – Dec 2021, Jan & Feb 2022

It's been a while since I did one of these! I had a bit of a lull in the hobby from around mid-December to mid-January and struggled to get inspired to get back to painting. I've been building up steam again this month so wanted to post up a review of what I've been up … Continue reading Progress Update – Dec 2021, Jan & Feb 2022

Progress Update – November 2021

First up, got some 10mm samples for Warring States Chinese from Fogg of War. I wish I'd had these before I'd done my last Chinese project as they were more what I was wanting before I ended up going late Warring States/Early Imperial, but they've no website up yet, just happened to get an email … Continue reading Progress Update – November 2021

Progress Update – September/October 2021

Didn't get an update up last month so this is a double update. My primary focus remains on the Fedual Japanese, both the Early Feudal "small base" project and the larger Sengoku era bases. First up with the Early Feudal/Genpei War era. These are some Provincial Samurai who will be fighting alongside the Minamoto clan … Continue reading Progress Update – September/October 2021

Battle Report – Genpei War Skirmish

I have a few units painted up from my early Feudal Japanese project around the Genpei War, enough for a small command each so thought I'd get them on the table and take my rules out for another spin. Since I last played I've developed some more rules around the deployment and set up and … Continue reading Battle Report – Genpei War Skirmish

Progress Update – August 2021

This month started out well with a few more bases for my various Feudal Japanese projects ongoing. I also got delivery of an order from Pendraken I needed to continue with it (bases, figures, etc). However, a combination of factors meant I've not touched a brush or been near the hobby since that initial burst. … Continue reading Progress Update – August 2021

Progress Update – July 2021

Not a whole lot of painting done this month. I spent a lot of hobby time working on my feudal Japanese rules but have started painting up a couple of test units for the armies. This is a later "sonae" style mixed arms unit from the Sengoku Jidai: I just went with painted mon (the … Continue reading Progress Update – July 2021
