Gondor Avenger Bolt Thrower(s)

Here they are- the first siege engines I've painted for the Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game! I have yet to use one on the table, but I am excited to try them out!

Not much to say about these guys painting-wise, but I do have to give a huge shoutout to Alex far to the north in Calgary- he sourced both of these for me, and I am deeply appreciative!

Alex works for Emergency Services in Calgary, and supports a really cool non-profit charity called the CFBTS- Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Society

Thanks to Alex's generosity in sourcing these for me- a stranger he met on the internet through our awesome nerdy communities, I'll be donating $50 when this post goes live! 

"I have found that it is the small everyday deed of ordinary folks that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love."

Maybe, just maybe, you would like to donate too? We're living in crazy, difficult times, and random acts of internet kindness are good for the soul. If you'd like to draw swords together and donate alongside me, you can do so by clicking here! Please sound off here or message me if you do!

Thanks for checking out my painting and thanks to Alex again for sourcing these! I'm sorry to my opponents :)

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!
