Theodred and Grimbold

 Just a quick snap of recent painting. Working on the Theodred’s Guard Legendary Legion. 

Theodred looks interesting. He’s relatively inexpensive and has the potential to be quite kill-y. He is squishy though, and being forced to charge is a big drawback in a lot of cases even though you can play around it. 

I’m really not a fan of two-handed weapons in MESBG (unless you’re burly or it’s master crafted of course). I’m mostly interested in Grimbold for the access to Helmingas. 

A mix of Helmingas and Royal Guards seems like it could be a really fun way to play Rohan. I’m not sure losing the +1 strength bonus for charging cavalry is worth spear supports but I like the idea of a front rank of D6/F4 Royal guards backed up by S4 spear supports. Plus- throwing spears for all!

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!

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.

500 point tournament report with Rivendell

I was really excited to play in a 500 point tournament over the weekend! It was the second of four connected tournaments in the "To War!" escalation series hosted at Your Hobby Place in Fredericksburg, VA. My report from the first tournament can be found here, where my Rivendell forces took third overall!
