The observant might notice that my weekly updates are a little out of synch with actual calendar-based time. This is because I have been on holiday for several weeks far away from my models and paints, so I decided to cut myself some slack and suspend the counter.
Having some time out has been really invigorating, and now I’m back with enthusiasm and ideas. I still have far too many projects on, but variety is the spice of life. The best thing that’s happened though, is that I finally have an idea in mind for how I want to theme my halfling army – and it opens up the possibility of including some of my much-loved Northumbrian Tin Soldier models. I’m not going to dwell on this too much as I’m planning on putting some blogs together on the army as I start to firm up exactly what I’m doing.
Inspiration for this has no doubt come from managing to take my gnomes out for a cheeky mid-week game of Frostgrave. I love Frostgrave because of just how much drama the rules allow. This week my barbarian was magicked to the top of a bell tower by my wizard, only to be pushed from the tower by enemy magic that sent him flying 19” across the table. He landed with, unsurprisingly, serious injuries only to find himself being eyed up by wild dogs and an ice toad. Fantastic fun.
For this week I’ll leave you with my finished Iron Beast and Sauceror that I managed to complete.
Finally, I just want to wish anyone reading this who is coming to the Mean Squeaks of Bristol, Kings of War tournament, a safe journey down. I look forward to welcoming you all.
