#52wkhobby – Week 12 – Watchtower & a little break

Warhammer Age of Sigmar WatchtowerI had a bit of a realisation on the weekend as I was finishing off my Watchtower over the weekend that I’d really been pushing myself to churn models out since Christmas, already clocking in well over 200 hours worth of hobby so far.  That’s pretty insane so this week I’m taking a little break and going “hobby light” with the focus being a bit of long overdue edge highlighting on 3 Mighty Skullcrushers.

This also means that on Saturday my hobby desk should be pretty clear for when the new Forgebane boxed set arrives.  My intention is to assemble everything in the box, so I don’t need to find somewhere to store it (and ultimately not touch it for months).

#52wkhobby – Week 11 – Scenery and Skeletons

Neferata Mortarch of BloodAnd another three weeks have vanished but I’ve clocked up a whopping 89 hours worth of hobby!  Project wise I’ve finished my Legions of Nagash army and now taking a break by painting up some old Warhammer scenery pieces that I’ve had for ages.  Since my last post, we’ve had the “Beast from the East” sweep across the UK, bringing Siberian temperatures which promptly dumped down substantial quantities of snow.  Sadly one of the casualties of this freak weather was the Age of Sigmar Open Day which was cancelled (but will be re-scheduled) and due to the poor travel conditions also meant that I wasn’t able to get to the Season of Sowing tournament up at Warhammer World.  Very sad that we had to make that call, but it was a case of better safe than sorry.  I still got to give my Legion of Nagash an outing with a three-way game on Monday 5th, so it wasn’t a complete loss.
