About this blog

A focus on the shenanigans involved in my hobby and gaming career. I hope to help inspire others to make shortcuts for themselves to get painting faster, storing models better, and playing games as smoothly as possible.

A little about myself. First and foremost, I am always an enthusiast while not needing to be enthusiastic all the time. I've come to interpret this as always focusing on the things that make me excited and just plain ignore the things that go out of their way to make me not-so. For that reason, my goal with this or any community will be to build things up and not tear things down, the latter being a complete waste of time. 

Second and second-most, FUN is top priority in all cases. Simple as that (and yes, there's gamer psychological profiles that dictate how people have fun and these different folks butt heads sometimes, but you get the point). 

I am a 30-somethin' hobby guy who's been primarily painting Age of Sigmar models for the last four years, but always looks forward to playing, designing or play-testing board games. My background is, frankly, non-existent? Still haven't figured that out yet. The culmination of my time in the miniatures hobby can be described as gaming on a budget and in a confined space. I've done almost all my work in my personal room and haven't been big on spending gobs of money (yes I know, "choose a different hobby", I get it).

But restriction breeds creativity! It's my frugality and success enjoying this hobby that has brought about a few innovations that will serve as the back-bone for future entries. For this community, I wish to take problems or obstacles from you fine folks that has hindered your time in the hobby or game and do my best to provide solutions. Perhaps learning about the "restrictions" placed on the hobbyists/gamers of this community will be the most insightful.

Making deployment easy! With chopsticks?

After many hours of setting up games, handling so many models and conducting deployment shenanigans I have finally cracked the code on doing these things the easy way.  We have a "Tape measure companies hate him, find out why" situation here. The solution: 9'' chopsticks bought in bulk. As many of you have discovered GW has settled on rules' that generally rely on distances/ranges that have some multiple of 9, mostly concerning the core book, realm and scenario rules. I wish to show how and

Be bold! Behold! The Warp-Sun of Skavenblight

This first entry was an exercise in letting ago of fears and going for it. I must attribute my undertaking of this project to Age of Sigmar regulars from the Warhammer Weekly show, who, many cycles ago, made a big point of getting wild and wacky with your hobby. In particular when you've been using the guide rails of Citidal paints and the thought that you only had to paint the models that you were given.  And thus began the era of making my own models or in this case, not kit-bashing at al
