  1. I haven't posted in a while since May I think but my hobby resolution is coming along nicely, back in July me and a few friends ran a 26 player 2 day AOS event which scratched off 2 challenges. first was to win 3/5 games at an event (I borrowed a friends flesh eater courts army) which has been eluding me as I've really taken a step back from caring about winning this year, the second challenge I crossed off was to win a best sports award which is always difficult to do especially in this community where there are very few people who don't deserve the award and getting 4/5 favourite game votes was soooooo amazing, I have to admit moving through the year and going to 9 events so far this year I was concerned that this challenge was one that I wasn't going to achieve so when it was announced that I had won I was over the moon. So moving forward I think painting wise I'm trying to paint shade spire warbands with contrast which I have to say is really coming along nicely as I've painted the skeletons and the tzeentch warbands in 3 days, the issue I see now is I have 2 events coming up for AOS in November that I might try to get my tzeentch painted for to try and get that done but painting tzeentch takes a while........ maybe contrast can help. Reading wise I've been reading a Battletome a month now since the beginning of the year which I'm loving this month I have read the beasts of chaos Battletome and they are more interesting than I first thought even the army appeals bit more to me now that I've read the narrative,I have also picked up the war storm book from the realm gate wars to read but I haven't cracked it open yet. In terms of reading a rulebook the recent release of war cry has given me a rulebook that isn't 200 pages long; perfect for my kind of reading. So overall my hobby resolution list is looking pretty good so far the only one Im not so sure on is painting my tzeentch army but as I said I have contrast now so that will help a lot.
  2. So a look at the final outcome of the event after two days of gaming we have the results, i 1st place we have Ant with Slaanesh 2nd Place was Andy with night haunt 3rd place went to Andy with Skaven . In last place we have Dave the proud owner of the wooden spoon. And finally we have another Andy winning best sports. the top ten players were as follows Ant Slaanesh Andy Nighthaunt Andy Skaven Jack Beasts Of Chaos Simon Flesh Eaters Tim Blades Of Khorne Jason Sylvaneth Danny Fyreslayers Aaron Sylvaneth Andy Flesh Eaters So there we have it a very interesting set of results.
  3. So April has been a busy month for hobby I've managed to paint an army in a month, a lord of the rings army specifically the army of the dead with Aragorn Legolas and Gimli as well, its been a long time since i've painted any lord of the rings and it was really nice to have a break from painting any age of Sigmar. I also went to a one day event that my local club ran with my gut busters again and this time had some more better luck and won a game but that brings the number of events i've been to this year to 4 just one more and I've done my hobby goal of going to 5 events this year. Reading wise ive started reading the blood angels omnibus part 2 which I'm really liking as I'm a massive blood angels fan boy, age of Sigmar wise ive read the Fyreslayers battletome so I'm sticking to reading a battletome each month, next month Slaanesh. Now that I write this update it doesn't seem like i've achieved that much but its been a busy month of mostly reading and a bit of painting but as long as I'm doing little bits I should achieve a lot in the coming months either way this hobby resolution has been a great motivator.
  4. Coming to the end of April and I'm starting to find things are getting harder to cross off my list, mid April I went to a local one day event run by the purple sparkly unicorns and I took ogres that I've been working on for awhile, I consider ogres to be my underdog army as I came away with the wooden spoon award, I found that while taking big blocks of ogres looks cool hitting on 4's really hurts; later in the year id like to add some bigger things to my ogres like a giant or thunder tusk but for the meantime I'm going to wait until ogres get a battletome. Ive also started reading the blood angels omnibus part 2 but as I'm a pretty slow reader it might be a while before that gets crossed off the list, On may the 4th I went down to Warhammer world for the age of Sigmar heat 2, I took stormcast and managed to win 2/5 games with a third being very close. That means that ive been to 4 events this year only 1 more and ive been to 5 events which is another goal achieved. I still feel that all the goals on my list are achieveable but after recently starting Fyreslayers I need to get them done for future events this year before I can properly start painting shanspire warbands and my disciples of tzeentch backlog, hopefully may will be a productive month.
  5. At the end of march already it seems like the year is flying by, along with my hobby challenge. As you can tell this month I've made a dent in my hobby resolutions I recently went to a throne of skulls at Warhammer world which is always fun as its a lot more relaxed then your regular tournament, at the end of the weekend id crossed two things of my list, first off was have an army painted at least a month before the event. I took my maggotkin of Nurgle all of which I painted for Warhammer achievements at blood and glory las November, so no painting on the Friday night which is sooo nice. The second thing I was able to achieve was to go to a 2 day event and never voluntarily take the double turn...... which was definitely fun for me as I lost 2 games because I couldn't take the double turn, overall I thought not taking a double turn was fun as there were moments when I could have really gained a he tactical advantage but gave it to my opponent which made the games harder for me but I enjoy a challenge, as I said I lost two games because of it; but a nice easy goal achieved and a throne of skulls is the best place to do these sort of things . Another goal I now feel like I have achieved is to use the TGA more often which as I write this I definitely have done again nice and easy but until the beginning of the year I never really used the TGA which is just a waste. So going into April (scary thought) I plan on taking Gutbusters to a one day event me and some friends are running which I class as an underdog army and it will also be my third event of the year which is awesome. We are also finally getting round to building some city ruins for warhammer 40k which when those are finished I will definitely have built at least 8 pieces of terrain so while ive only done 4 things on the list ive almost done another 3, I also read the Idoneth Deepkin Battletome which was more enjoyable then I thought although I did start it in February so I need to read 2 books in April to make up for it, I'm looking at blades of Khorne and skaven to read in April.
  6. Februarys update is nice and easy one this month, painting wise I've been busy painting ogres for a throne of skulls at the end of the march so I haven't really had the time to paint any tzeentch or shade spire but once the ogres are done I'm right back on it, speaking of ogres I have painted 8 ironguts and 6 bulls atm but the rest of the army is 50% so I've still painted a lot (just nothing for my hobby resolution). Reading wise I started reading the idoneth deepkin Battletome which I've found a lot more enjoyable than the tzeentch. Their whole story is great being brought back into the mortal realms by teclis, then being forced to live underwater and more importantly how they have survived by harvesting souls is awesome, not sure what I'm going to read in march but I'm feeling like a 40k codex is next up. Gaming wise I haven't been to any events in February but I am planning on going to the AOS throne of skulls at the end of march at Warhammer world, with the goal of scratching a few things off; like never taking a double turn and going to 3 events which I'll finish off in April. Hobby wise I have posted 4 weeks of wipwednesdays on twitter covering a long slog of painting pink horrors and starting my ogres so that's something I have crossed off the list, a nice and easy one to get me going but I have found that it has given me a lot of motivation to get a little bit of hobbying done every few days which is great, I am definitely using the TGA more often but I'm not quite ready to cross that off the list. Now terrain wise me and a few friends have started running a few small one day events and obviously we need terrain for that, in the last month I've helped to build and paint over 20 pieces of terrain; however seeing as the terrain is not for me I'm not crossing that off the list until I've painted some for myself; having read the idoneth deepkin book I'm really looking at the gloom tide shipwreck. So that's all for February I didn't get as much as I wanted to get done this month but at the same time this is a marathon not a sprint, I am enjoying reading more and painting terrain so at the end of February I have achieved 1/15 goals. Bring on march.

  8. A quick update on my hobby resolution at the end of January, painting wise I managed to paint the ironskullz shadespire warband which was great fun, only having to paint a few models for an army that I wouldn't normally paint or play was enjoyable. My tzeentch commitment I managed to paint a chaos sorcerer lord which is a great model and 10 pink horrors, those were abit of a drag and I found it took me a week just to paint the silver although that was one of the final stages but im glad I haven't got anymore to paint for a while. Reading wise I read the disciples of tzeentch battletome which was actually quite a good read, I really like the fluff on the blue scribes and how the arcanite cults operate within the cities of the mortal realms and the idea of an orgroid thaumatage being teachers still makes me laugh abit. On the 20th on Jan I took part in a one day AOS event run by the purple sparkly unicorns which was 1500pts, 3 games matched play event. I took nighthaunt to the event as its what I've been running since June last year, I played Dave from sprues and brues podcast in the first round and had a cracking game of border war which ended in a win for me. I won the second game aswell against slyvaneth in focal points but sadly lost against legion of nagash in the last round I ended 7/20 which im happy with; I also went to the underworlds grand clash at Warhammer world with the ironskullz boys which was a big learning experience, I ended on 2 draws and 2 losses not great but my hopes was only 1 win (one day) but that's event 2/5 this year as part of my hobby goal. And finally hobby wise I feel like I am using the TGA more often but im not quite ready to cross that off, I have been posting #Wipwednwedays on twitter (@DodgyRoller for those interested) mostly about the shadespire warband and my tzeentch stuff I am currently on week 3/4 so that's one I can scratch off next month, terrain wise I've been helping paint terrain for the purple sparkly unicorns (@psunicorns on twitter) painting rock formations from foam which has been great fun in preparation for a 2 day event in July called march to war 4 (check the events page for details). So that's my January update and while I haven't managed to cross anything off the list a lot of what I have done are part of a larger goal which I don't see me doing until later in the year but I have enjoyed it and I really do look forward to next month.

  11. So in 2018 I set myself some hobby goals that I wanted to achieve by the end of the year, most of which weren't realistic (like finishing all my little projects from the last year) in the end I scored 4/9 of my goals; but I came away from 2018 with a satisfied outlook on the hobby. Going into 2019 I set myself a more realistic list of hobby goals (one of which is to post on the TGA more often as its a great tool for us hobbyists) and throughout the year I will be posting my updates on how Im doing. My main aim regardless of how many goals I achieve is to come out of 2019 with the same outlook on the hobby that I did in 2018, a positive one. So here's my list = Painting = Paint all shade spire warbands. Paint all tzeentch models in my pile of shame ( 2500pts) Paint an army in a month Have all painting for an event done at least a month before, no Friday night painting in the hotel room while friends are playing games. Reading = Read a black library book. Read a codex/battletome every month Read a full rulebook. Gaming = Never voluntarily take the double turn at an AOS event (2 Dayer) Take an underdog army like slaves to darkness to an event. Win 3/5 games at two events. Go to 5 events. Hobby = Use the TGA more often Post 4 #WIPwednesdays on twitter in a row Paint 8 pieces of terrain Win a best sports award. 15 goals for 2019 all of which I feel should be able to achieve and it gives me something to aim for at the end of 2019, even though I've only just started I look forward to posting updates as the year rolls on.
  12. I really like this new version as it feels like they have found a good balance between points and effectiveness, at 300 I might even consider buying another one. Is it good, personally yeah I like it but there are a few things we need to consider, the nighthaunt book isn't out yet so there will probably be synergies that make the mourngul better in some way; the new spirit of torment can heal D3 wounds if your army kills 3 models combined with its own rule to heal is good but not broken.
  13. New article on the commuinity site reveals a few things for nighthaunt like ... we’re getting a wizard and shows a new warscroll I am super excited
