40k : astra militarum and alpha legion vs. tau (750+750vs1500)

Tonight’s game was a three player, two vs one, game of Warhammer 40000, Games Workshop’s futuristic military tabletop miniatures game. I brought 750 points of Astra Militarum. This isn’t a battle report of any kind but a wee breakdown of how my army performed, unit by unit, especially as I brought some things to battle […]

the substitute (a tom berenger classic…)

Okay, this might seem like I’m pouring venom on it straight away, with a shady title like that, but let’s not forget that Berenger, at the height of his powers, was a very watchable actor. And 1996’s The Substitute is showing those powers in the ascendant. Here’s the deal; Jonathan Shale (Berenger) is a mercenary […]

It’s 2020!

Congratulations! As the Earth survives another successful orbit of its celestial master we can look over the last year, or decade, and see what we’ve achieved and what we’ve learned. But let’s not bother with that. I’m actually in a good mood and I don’t want to spoil it. 😀 Three things of note though: […]

Pastor Niles is one of the Ministorum Priests assigned to Major Emerson’s Fighting 27th, a motley collection of soldiers trying to stay alive on the nightmare world of Planet Nine. He’s shinier than expected when seen close up. That […]

battle ready – windwalker oh. no!

Let’s be honest, I’ve not painted him. That’s not any great surprise. But on the next day or two I’ll post what I have been painting using Citadel’s new wonder paint.

battle ready – windmaster oh

I’ve had this model kicking around, unpainted, for years. A couple of editions of Warhammer Fantasy Battle ago. Now we’re in the brave new world of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, version 2.0 no less, and maybe it’s time to splash some paint on the old fella. Also, I’ve been inspired by the recent chat over […]

the most adjective thing in the world

My wife is training to be a teacher this year. And tomorrow, on her placement, she is teaching a lesson on variables for a 3rd year class. Oh, it’s Computing Science she’s teaching. She has asked me to throw together a story which she, and the class, can use for plugging data into. The variables, […]

bullet journals, and other things

First things first: bulletjournal.com That’s where you’ll find the main info behind it. Bullet Journals are part diary, part journal, part calendar. And the way it’s done means you’re in control of how the information is saved, with an indexing system that’s quite adaptable. I got a new notebook today. That’ll serve as my new […]
