Wow! Where has this year gone! First off I’d like to thank everyone who takes the time viewing this blog, every month the views seem to go up & up. Honesty never thought this would get as much attention as it has, and I find it fascinating how the views come from all around the world, the power of technology!
Unfortunately December has been a dry spell for gaming due to life commitments & well getting ready for Christmas. But I have gotten on with a few painting projects, namely the Mûmakil, Legolas & Radagast. Who are nearly finished… As well as 1500 points of Alpha Legion Chaos Space Marines.
This year was essentially building the foundation of what else the rest will lay on, quite literally with the new gaming table, battle mat & the terrain that gives depth & character to creating our vision of middle earth. It’s been fascinating learning how to create the terrain, thanks to YouTube. Notably the terrain tutor & Luke’s APS. They’re knowledge has been invaluable. If you don’t know who these chaps are and your interested in building terrain you should check them out.
Also the Instagram account to which this blog is linked with has also been doing incredibly well, more so than the blog!
As for next year we will finally be exploring Warhammer 40,000 8th edition & hoping to get a few practice games in around January. Along with this I’ll be looking at building some grim dark sci-fi terrain (ruins, toxic sludge pits… Who knows) as well as regular updates of the progression of the Alpha Legion as I build them up to around 2000 points. We have been talking about setting some sort of narrative around these games, so you may also be treated to some poorly written stories… Maybe a new battle mat too? Who knows.
As well as dipping into Warhammer Age Of Sigmar, but at this moment in time that’s a while off.
Unfortunatly I think we will be leaving middle earth for a short break, until the new rule book arrives. I believe it’s due in the summer. Really can’t wait to see this game updated & hopefully with some new miniatures too!
Anyway again thank you to everyone who regularly visits the site, really means a lot.
