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

Progress Update – April 2022

I'm a little late on this one due to the birth of our first child, so I suspect the coming months will be a bit quieter on the hobby front, but April turned out to be quite a productive month hobby-wise. Got a good run on some ongoing projects as well as the start of … Continue reading Progress Update – April 2022

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

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.

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

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

Warring States China using Feudal Japanese Rules

Continuing on my series on tweaking and adapting my own rule set for Feudal Japan I was getting a bit tired of using MDF counters and wanted to get some actual figures on the table.
