Yes yes, I know I said the hobby update would be biweekly last October, but I didn’t hobby a lot… or at all for months (new job, no opponents close by, not that many miniature games left in my possession). So here is the promised hobby update in which I will show you what I’ve been up to in these last couple of months. Continue reading Irregular hobby update #1.5-ish
So last Saturday I managed to play a couple of games of SAGA for the first time in almost two years. Both battles were four-player battles and both played out quite differently. The first one was a free-for-all, the players each started in one of the corners and had to kill as many men as possible within seven turns.
I decided to play with my Anglo-Saxons, we all had four points to spent on our warband, so I got three points worth of Warriors, creating two units of twelve Warriors. With my last point I bought a unit of mounted Hearthguard, to try an lure weaker elements of my opponents away from their main body and destroy them.
I can’t remember what my opponents armies looked like, but I went up against Scots, Jomsvikings and Norse Gaels… yay :p
And yes, that is 2d terrain. The host is an active Warmachine player, a game in which 2d terrain is a must-have with all those big and clunky (metal) models. I don’t like it either, but just bear with me 😉
So this week I started painting again after a long hiatus and I found it quite relaxing actually. So in order to keep me motivated, I will try to post a hobby update once every two weeks, to show you what I am working on. This is what I did this week…
So the second location in the frozen city has been raided by the warbands and lots of scrolls and grimoires have been found. Not to mention heaps of gold. Continue reading Frostgrave campaign part two: The Library

Anyone who’s even a little into wargaming must have heard about the latest hype created by Osprey Wargames known as Frostgrave. The fantasy skirmish game of competing wizards and their underlings fighting for lost treasures in a half frozen ruined city. Well I wasn’t really sure about this game until I started reading the book… Damn, another game to start with :p Continue reading Joining the Frostgrave madness
In the beginning of this year, the people of the Dutch Miniature Wargaming Facebookgroup decided to start a huge project named 2014 the Defense of France / 2015 Quatre Bras/Waterloo. The objectice was to collect and paint an army for both events. I decided to join the Prussians during this war and last saturday we played the first series of battle for the Defense of France.
