Iron Hills Painting Progress!

Just a quick post today highlighting my growing Iron Hills collection. With every model pictured here I am just shy of 600 points which feels like a "full sized" game to me. Next, I'll be adding a Captain mounted on Goat, a banner, some crossbows, and finally some Goat cavalry to take me to 800 points. Someday I want to add the Ballista!

As you can probably tell, this is my first entirely 3D printed army. The conversation around 3D printing is an interesting one in the hobby! On the one hand, of course, printing this means I did not pay GW for it. On the other hand... I probably just straight up wouldn't have in the first place!

For the most part, I 3D print only to supplement holes in the availability and often replace the 3D model as I can. As an example, I just picked up the new Elrond release to replace my previously 3D printed mounted Elrond and second elf banner. Finally, my collection is pretty massive so GW shareholders have profited plenty off of me and Andrew! Anyhow, I suppose I am trying to justify 3D printing which says plenty about where my head is around it- I am very interested to see how the industry adapts and react accordingly!

Bonus picture of Hudson. I got a ton of painting done because the poor boy had an operation, so I took the day off work to keep an eye on him. The day alternated between snuggles and painting.

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.
