Hobby Roundup (Week 6)

Well, unfortunately the joys of real life meant I didn’t get time to update the blog as much as I’d like, so you’ll notice a bit of a jump to week 6! Hopefully I’ll get a chance to pop in a few notes for weeks 4 & 5 retrospectively!  In fairness, though, pretty much no actual hobby except for some vicarious dribbling actually took place, so you didn’t miss much!

I’ve decided I need a bit of an OTT hobby project after being called “sensible” the other day, so I’m currently looking at a fully decked out Deathwatch squad from a range of different chapters.  Mind you, given the rumours of a deathwatch/genestealer cult game coming, I may well hang on.  I am tempted to go sillier though, with an Ork Nobs mob called Wotcha Deff!  Painboy, silvery robot left arms, black armour…. muahahahahaha!

Also considering an Eldar Revenant titan for ludicrous scale silliness!  Knights just aren’t enough!

Currently very into looking at getting Bloodbowl teams sorted out, and Bear has been painting his Armada models which has got me excited to paint up my Armada and X-Wing too.  Time is very difficult at the moment though, with 2 little ones and we’re in birthday season!

I thought the new Space Wolf stuff might get me excited for some old school marine action – my first RT marines were wolves!  The Wulfen pics I’ve seen look like were chicken poses in biker spandex, so not floating my boat …. though in fairness, GW pics are often a bit under par and don’t do models justice.  The new character models are nice though, but I already have Krom from the limited campaign set.

Struggling getting excited for guildhall going through the rules and options, and its the same hangup I have a bit with Malifaux too.  I generally prefer systems like frostgrave or mordheim, where the war band slate is a blank.  Having to pick established characters doesn’t get me into the game quite as much.  Cracking rulesets though.  I was looking at trying to field an all female guildball team, but can’t work out a good way of doing it without losing too many team synergies. 🙁  Mind you, I never win anyway!

Anyways, onwards and upwards!
