Hobby Bingo- February Update

 Quick post today! Crossed off two new things on the Bingo Card. 

  • Start a new Army: Gondor! I technically painted some of the heroes prior to the new year... but if that doesn't count, then Isengard! I bought a bunch but haven't started painting it yet.
  • Attend a Middle-earth gaming event: The To War! tournament! 
  • Read or listen to The Hobbit or any of the Lord of the Rings trilogy: I wrapped up the Two Towers and am finishing up reading the Return of the King now!
  • Play a game against an opponent you have never played before: Played Tim and Garrett who I had not previously played!
  • Finish a good army of at least 600 points: With the Rangers of Gondor, I officially put my Minas Tirith list above 600 points (actually a lot more if you count Gandalf the White but that's too easy!)
  • Paint a model within 48 hours of receiving it. Done with Denethor and Irolas- had them painted same day!

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.
