Dear readers, this blog will go on summer hiatus for the month of August. As temperatures soar (temperatures of over 40 degrees were measured) both gaming time and hobby time will most likely be skipped due to summer activities with family. There probably will be painted a miniature or two, maybe even played a game … Continue reading Summer hiatus
As I recently started to collect pictures of my armies, I realized that I didn't have that many pictures of my undead army, except for the few units I painted up last year. The reason is that my undead army is a "gamer's" army. It's not as much an army as much as a collection. … Continue reading Overview: my undead army
As KoW3 looms at the horizon one of the questions that keep me (and at least one of my mates) busy is how different do we want armies to be in KoW? In KoW2 armies get more and more similar. (Not from a hobby perspective, of course, but from a gamer's perspective.) For instance: the … Continue reading How unique should armies be?

Mantica needs stalwart men who face off against the evil that stalks the land. The brotherhood needs reinforcements, and you'll be the one to … Continue reading Building on a budget – Brotherhood

It seems I'm severely lacking in pictures of the majority of my armies. Some armies might even get a page of their own. As for my … Continue reading Overview of my completed armies
While waiting for 3rd edition; is not the best time to start a new hobby project. I, most likely, will be inspired to either start a new project or expand on my current armies as soon as KoW3 lands, so I'll avoid starting something completely new until the book lands. That said, there's still some … Continue reading Between hobby projects – waiting for Kow 3rd edition
It's been a while since I posted a hobby update. Mainly because of the fine weather, painting is very slow these days, but that's okay. KoW hobby time is -for me at least- partially a fall/winter thing. That said, I finished a pair of reaper bones scorpions. As with all reaper minatures, the detail isn't … Continue reading Hobby update and Scorpion comparison
Just a small update: Kings of War 3rd edition was announced! More information on the Mantic website here: Probably the rules will not chance so much. (they didn't last time), but the army lists will. As there was some room to improve 1st edition, I think the changes from KoW 1 to 2 were bigger … Continue reading Kings of War 3rd edition on the horizon: # hyped!
After numerous misunderstandings with the law, something had to be done about our Warlock's reputation. It's true that his communication may be lacking at times, so we tried to solve this by sending along our bard to translate his intentions. These are the results: Disclaimer: this blog post is just a bit of DnD fun. … Continue reading Bad DnD-jokes
