Hobby Bingo- January


Hobby Bingo is fun! I'll keep up with this throughout the year. For the most part I'll grade pretty much "by the book". So far I've accomplished (or will have accomplished by this time tomorrow!) three.

-Start a New Army. While I obtained Minas Tirith in 2022, I didn't put paint to brush on the majority of the troops until this year. We also saw Gondor on the table for the first time, with Andrew driving them to victory.

-Attend a Middle Earth Gaming event. Well, tomorrow is the final round of "To War!" an awesome escalation tournament series of which I've written several tournament reports. So, pending life getting in the way, I will be rolling dice within 24 hours of this being published! This should also satisfy "Play a game against an opponent you have never played before" unless all of my opponents are repeats.

-Read or Listen to the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings. I actually finished reading the Two Towers last night, and started on Return of the King. So, marking this done. Will finish up the book in a week or two. By the way, I highly recommend re-reading them if it's been a while for you! They're still SO GOOD.

-I'm sorry, but I just can't watch the entirety of the Hobbit Trilogy. I know plenty of folks like it, but I just cannot make it through it- I tried mid last year. 

Excited to keep track of this!

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.
