The Big Gap

So its been a while, being an adult really kicks your free time in the balls. Between christmas nights out, work and family time I had pretty much zero hobby time except the time allocated to my project of finishing Robute Guilliman. Pictures of his awesomeness are below. If i was to do it again I would change the marble effect on the base, its pretty shit. 


After this I had planned to take a few weeks off over the christmas and new year break but in early January we decided to buy a house. This turned out to be a massive undertaking that is soaking up all of my free time. My hobby desk is being used for storage of all manner of random house things and I am now a definate +10 in fence post digging and drainage trench digging. 


In the Magic world I finally aquired my first three Dual Lands


These will fit brilliantly into my Animar and Daxos of Meletis decks. Got my 8 EDH decks out and decided that my next decks will be either Zada or Child of Alara/15 Gods. 


Also picked up a few inventions and expeditions.

Will be more regular updates eventually, just need to get into the new house and settled. Got a lot more Bloodbowl, Dropfleet and Dropzone, Team Yankee and more to come.

Long and short I am not dead 🙂

Busy bee

So its been a week or so and again I have not been super lazy and avoided doing any hobby (much).


Last Sunday I managed a game of Dropzone with my Shaltari. The starter set is all finished to a decent tabletop level. I sadly lost as I found out how flimsy Shaltari can be when people are nasty and shoot at your.


My Dropfleet Shaltari arrived and boy are they beautiful. Took me a bit to get my head around the instructions but after you figure out how they go together they are very easy to build. Just a starter set for now but I have a 2 Player Starter Set en route as well as an additional UCM fleet. I plan on having the UCM as my main while the Shaltari are a nice side project to work on. The Scourge have been sold off to a friend. I am planning on painting and naming them after the UNSC ships from Halo 🙃


Finally this is my current to do list… not much as you can see. Pretty sure its grown since last month.

And finally a wee update from this morning as I got some paint on my Shaltari. Army Painter Daemonic Yellow, going to follow a similar process to the DZC Shaltari I have.

Also managed a game if Dropfleet yesterday. It is awesome. If you are on the fence about Battlefleet Gothic V2 then give it a go. Honestly cannot say enough good things about it. 

My only issue with it is that I now have to choose between it and Dropzone for what to play on a Sunday. Wonder if my other half will agree to another day of wargames a week….

Shaltari Run Out

Took my Shaltari for a run out today, suffered a hard defeat at the hands of the PHR sadly. My tactical inexperience with the new force really shone through while my opponent made some solid tactical choices at the right moments to utterly wipe the floor with me. I have a few pictures of the game below, just ignore the two Condors standing in as Medium Gates and the two gunless walkers

A little more Dropzone

My weekend plans of doing the testing on the basing failed miserably. Instead I went out drinking and played Civ 5. Still a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Today I managed to get some a game of Dropzone in and it was awesome. 5 player 1v1 game and it was epic. We decided to do starter sets only and it was 3 PHR, one Scourge and myself as UCM. I was planning a battle report but it was a bit mental so enjoy a few pictures of it and the updates of the basing will follow through the week.
