Painting tally for the year so far. A real mixed bag.


So somehow this year I have managed to paint / sell on over 90 miniatures.

Now at least a quarter of this is due to me giving Lano my Warmachine stuff as I think I have finally kicked that dirtiest of habits. But there has also been some painting.

Mordheim XX. Grab the mage!


With the conclusion of the 'Breakthrough' scenario and Bill and Mike 2.0 finishing up we laid out the board for game 2.

This would be a Battle Royale with all 4 warbands taking to the field!

Mordheim XX. Breakthrough


The 14th of April saw the four Warbands once again converge to contest the streets of Mordheim.

My first game would see me take on Nigel and his undead in a 'Breakthrough' scenario.

Shadespire, Saturday night fights


With our Academy Easter break starting a week after everyone else I literally crawled over the finishing line at work on Friday.

I threw up the Bat signal Saturday to see if anyone fancied a Shadespire Throwdown.

It turned out quite a few people did!!

School Oracy day


So once again it is school 'Oracy' day.

The idea is we use communication centred learning . . . . . .

Mordheim XX. Venturing back into the cursed city


Had the absolute pleasure of playing the first two games in the Mordheim campaign I and several other lunatics are playing through this year.

With this being the 20th anniversary of the original release of the game it only seemed appropriate.

Weekend Shadespire battle reports


Work had been an absolute bastard last week so I threw up the Bat signal Friday night to see if anyone fancied a game of little soldiers.

Thankfully Lee answered the call to arms.

Sunday night fights; Shadespire: Silver Vs Gold


You're going to have to forgive me as I am well behind with my blogging posts at the moment due to half term.

Sunday before last Lee and I threw down via the medium of ShadeSpire

Warped Galaxies and Realm Quest



Last week GW released two new series of books for 'younger readers' as an introduction to the Warhammer worlds.

Being as I was near a GW on Sunday I popped in and bought both books for my 9 year old lad. . . . .

He had finished both of them by Monday evening!!!!!

I know this as he made a point of marching into the kitchen when he finished and pointing at the release date of the next books in the series!

I guess he liked them ;0)


Of the two the Realm Quest; City of Lifestone was his favorite.

I was a bit surprised at this but his reasoning was 'they are like the Harry Potter books with magic and stuff'.

Personally I am pleased they have done this as when reading 'Shadespire' one of the first scenes has someone strangling someone else with their own entrails.

Very in keeping with the OTT nature of Warhammer but I could do without the nightmares if my lad read the book.

Same with the 'Inquisitor' series of books which sees a female character essentially raped by a blob thing.

So yer Warped Galaxies and Realm Quest, fully recommended by a nine year old.

I think Khorne was having a lie in today. 1500 points of WHF 8th and some Shadespire


Finally got to meet up with Lee after what seems like ages.

We decided to have a game of WHF to get back up to speed with the game and if time allowed some Shadespire.

Sir John Soane's Museum. Another London hidden treasure


So with it being 'blue Monday weekend' and the wife's birthday I needed to dig into my box of tricks and pull out another hidden London treasure.

This time I went for Sir John Soane's house in Holborn.

Last stand in the Cursed city


So Sunday last Mike 2.0 and I met up at the Magic Madhouse to continue our Mordheim mini campaign.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.


I finally have a paint station.

Ok it's a bunch of stacked up 64 litre crates with a 2'x4' gaming board balanced on top and it's tucked away in one of the sheds at the end of the garden but it will do!

The 12 games of Christmas


NOPE!! I'm not dead!

The lack of blogging has been due to a lack of home PC as Riotville is still not kitted out with electricity yet. However I have not been idle.

Let me introduce to you . . . . . .
