Glorfindel Lord of the West

Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength." Glorfindel was one of the mightiest Elves of Middle-earth.
As I mentioned on my Lords of the West article, it's pretty hilarious that this was announced literally hours after I finished painting the much older Glorfindel. Like many Tolkien fans, Glorfindel is one of my favorite characters- even though I am 100% on board with what Peter Jackson did with Arwen in his stead. 

Normally I absolutely HATE finecast, but this model really wasn't too bad overall. The casting was quite clean with very few supports and mold lines to clean up. Maybe that's only because the cast is so new.

He's been the leader of the Rivendell forces for most of our games- I prefer him to Elrond and Gil-Galad over all, only because of his flexibility. He can deal with just about anything. His biggest weakness is just his "killiness". Strength 4 is par for the course for most heroes, but given Glorfindel's cost it does feel a little weak. Though, he can two-hand AND has heroic strength, I just find my might on Glorfindel to be at an absolute premium while two-handing can be tough to pull off safely.

Plenty of battle reports to come featuring this guy!

Tabletop Admiral MESBG Army Builder now Live!

Many of you who have frequented this blog and checked out some of my battle reports may have noticed just how nice my army lists looked! This is all thanks to Andrew, the developer of Tabletop Admiral. Many moons ago he worked on a modular system for his list builder and I volunteered to be the steward of the MESBG data- tirelessly click-clacking away to get your favorite profiles digitized! This builder is AWESOME. I've been using even the earliest alpha versions of it for well over a year and nothing else comes close. Love it to pieces! IF YOU COME ACROSS BUGS PLEASE E-MAIL ME DIRECTLY AT The text below the cut is from Andrew's original announcement on Reddit, and details how to use the builder!

Mordor vs the Beornings LL in Destroy the Supplies at 650.

After my previous defeat at the hands of Connor's Dwarves , I was not looking forward to this matchup! The bears are, some of the boogeymen of MESBG and my "not-so-great" Beast was going to be no match for them! Here we go!

The game room overhaul

After a few years, it was time for a total game room overhaul. I had the space trying to pull triple duty with a couch/TV space, my office, and the game room. Frankly, it was feeling too cramped, looking too cluttered, and the TV was barely seeing any use. So, with the support of my fiancee (6 weeks till the big day! It's a big part of what's been keeping me so busy, dear readers) I did a complete overhaul of the game room.
