Mini battle board...Cold Wars Planning

Hi all,

After the good time we had at Fall In this year a group of us New World types have been planning an Oldhammer game at Cold Wars next March...and we have decided to play a siege game.

I’ve committed to building the terrain and acting as GM for the game.  And now that the new year is here it’s time to get the ball rolling on this project.  Over the Christmas holidays I spent some time sketching terrain ideas and planning things out.

This started out harmless enough...I made a scale drawing of a 6’x4’ table and drew out a couple of possibilities....

then I decided to make some scale “foot prints” for my various terrain pieces (mighty fortress pieces, buildings, etc) so I could move them around and try different layouts.

 And before too I knew it...I had just gone full nutter and built a full 1/12 scale model of the table I would like to build.

 I even decided to paint it...

Now I just have to pull the pieces together to make the real thing!



Blue's 2019 recap post!!! What a long strange trip it's been...

Hi all,

I wanted to take the opportunity to post a brief recap of my "Year in Hobby: 2019 edition"  ...since that seems to be the type of thing you do at the end of one year and the beginning of another.

It was a productive year of hobbying for me.  I painted a quite a few figures...worked on some terrain pieces...had good games with good friends ...and finally made it to BOYL for the first time.

One of the highlights of the year for me in 2019 was my participation in the second iteration of the Old World Army Challenge.  You may remember that for the first OWAC I painted up a small army of Wood elfs....this year I returned to my absolute favorite army and all but finished it off!  The Puff and Slash Dwarf army!
