Gwaihir the Windlord

What a fantastically fun model to paint! A little bit on the pricier side, but my homeboy Andrew was so keen to get it on the table, he bought it outright to add to the collection. Given our next league starts ASAP, I rushed to get it painted up for him. I have to say, I am quite happy with the result!

The model came together decently, though did require a lot of greenstuff. In the close up pics, you can see where my sculpting skills aren't great, but at tabletop distance it's pretty smooth.

Gwaihir is slap-chop style with a mix of Wyldwood and Garaghak's Sewer for the base and Iyanden yellow for the claws and beak. After that it was multiple coats of light drybrushing to bring out the feather details in steadily lightened shades as we approached the top of the wings.

"Gwaihir was descended from Thorondor, the greatest Eagle who ever lived. It was said that he and his brother Landroval aided Thorondor in rescuing Beren and Luthien from Angband." and yet he still only has 2 Attacks? Shame.

Check back to see Gwaihir in a battle report soon!

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.
