And the terrain collection keeps on growing

The hobby butterfly visited once more, and this week's hobby time found me casting my eye around my extensive collection of Unpainted Stuff looking for something I could finish in a single painting session.

I bought a number of terrain pieces from Amera during their Black Friday sale last year, and I had painted one of them using standard brush techniques:

First Founding Mayhem League: Results Post 1

A bunch of games have been played in First Founding's 40K league, and the inaugural results table has been published.  It's the standings as of week 2 and half and a bit of the league; I suspect these posts aren't going to be particularly regular, but rest assured they are accurate (right Dave?)

Frostgrave: Revisiting the Rune Stone Race

Welcome back to the Vault for another installment of my hobby ramblings!

I'm finally starting up my long thought about Frostgrave campaign at First Founding next month. I'm planning a couple of demo/introduction sessions and then we'll be getting into the campaign proper!

I posted a draft of my campaign ideas in a previous post; but I wasn't too happy with some of the rules and ultimately with how the campaign will finish. This post is therefore an updated set of campaign rules which I hope will be simpler to use, and more fun for the participants!

Power Armoured Paint: The Lazy Persons Guide to Painting Space Shark Scouts

Welcome back to the Vault! This week's hobby time has been spent completing my first unit of Carcharodons Astra Scouts, and I am pretty pleased with the results. One of the original articles I wrote when I began the blog was a painting guide for Imperial Guardsmen (as much to help me remember the paint scheme as for other people's benefit), and I've decided a similar article for the Scouts will be useful as I've got at least two more units to paint.

Here's a piccie of the Scouts to wet your appetite:

Power Armoured Paint: First Contact with the Enemy

Greetings Commanders! Today's post comes hot on the heels of my first game with the Space Sharks. I had the opportunity to play test one of the possible missions for the upcoming Mayhem Tournament, and play test my army at the same time. 

My army list has been written to make use of the Strike from the Shadows Stratagem to get the Carcharodons into early contact with the opposition. Did it work? Kind of...
