Too Much Beer and Pretzels

It's time to step up the game

The hobby has been great to me over the past few years. Through the Oldhammer Forum and community events like BOYL and NOVAOSGROT I've been able to meet some very talented like-minded hobbyists. There have been more Oldhammer related super-secret Facebook miniature projects and Kickstarters over the past two years than you can shake a stick at. The icing on the cake is that I've been able to correspond with other hobbyists and really ramp up the productivity level. I've been fortunate enough to be able to get my painted figures on the same table as some of the figures I had only ever seen on other blogs and forum posts.

THAT. BEING. SAID.

It's time to step it up on the gaming front. While i'm all about beer and pretzels gaming, it's time I really step up my gaming efforts. While its been loads of fun to be able to just throw stuff on the table and have great time rolling dice, it's time we got our act together and put together some really well planned games and campaigns.

Orktober Diorama

Last stand!

Greetings interwebs peepulz! Sorry its been so long since an update. With work and real life its been a challenge to get back to regular blogging, not to mention the whole photobucket debacle. I haven't been silent on the hobby front, I've just focused on getting projects done and getting together with friends to actually roll dice. 

No more words... PICTURES!

Space Bastards!

We Need A Few Not-so-Good Men

So a couple things... first Photobucket sucks big hairy balls. 

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I present SPAAAACE BASTARDS!!

This summer I had the chance to go over to jolly England to attend BOYL and meet up with many of my favorite forum and blogosphere personalities. One of those guys was the one and only Erasmus Papafakis (real name). He and a couple other Oldhammer-ites came up with the idea of running a Space Bastard game. Basically, come up with a bunch of murderous, psychotic bastards, slap some power armor on them and send them on their way raping and pillaging everything in sight.
Initially I was just going to paint up some metal Rogue Trader marines in varied camouflage patterns, iconography, slogans etc..... but that's boring. I decided I would really embrace the idea and get to work putting together some lunatics. I used RTB01 plastics as the base for each model, but really went into a deep dive into my bits box.

Mercenaries!

Dirty! How I became a completionist


We all know one of them... those guys that just HAS to collect the entire range of something because the flyer was in their first White Dwarf. Yeah, i'm talking about those completionists... and now... i'm one of them.

Honestly, I don't even know how it happened. Actually I do know. Ebay has an app. That's why this happened. Now I have them all.... and they're ALL PAINTED. AND I'M GOING TO PLAY WITH THEM.

Remember Cadia

Cadian Veterans


If you keep up with current GW events you have probably heard that the 40k storyline is advancing and Cadia is falling to Chaos. Drama. I decided to have a little fun with the theme and get some miniatures painted.

Old is New is Old... is New?

Some Painted Stuff

Games Workshop has really stepped up their retro game in the past few years, which I think is great because they had really neglected some of their best games for a few years. While it's great to see games like Blood Bowl and supposedly Adeptus Titanicus come back, that ship sailed for me a while ago. I still snag up some current GW stuff from time to time, but with the exception of Forge World's Horus Heresy line, I pretty much leave it alone. Every now and then i'll snag up a miniature or a box of stuff because something catches my eye. One of those miniatures was the 30th anniversary marine.
