Rangers of Gondor

To supplement my forces of Minas Tirith, I knocked out 8 Rangers of Gondor to provide some extra fight and decent bow support. Will I ever bother painting the Warriors of Minas Tirith with bows? Maybe? You can equip them with shields to still get Shieldwall even if they won't benefit from the +1 Defense... Anyways, I digress. Back to Rangers.

I actually sort of really dug these models. There's something appealing to me about single casting dudes who overall LOWER detail. Sometimes newer models feel like they're just way too much for guys who are gonna be part of an invisible horde. Heroes? Sure- go all in. Regular dudes?

Clearly, I did NOT go all in- opting for a very simple Contrast paint scheme. Up close in these photos they look sorta rough, but you know what? On the table they look just fine! I'm happy with that.

Happy hunting, friends!

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!
