A week in Ulfenkarn

Let's begin with a Vampire pun...Like most hobbyists with a pulse I was instantly interested in Cursed City when it was previewed on one of the Warhammer TV preview shows. There's been a lot of negativity surrounding the release, but I don't think that killed enthusiasm for the boxed set - whether you're interested in the lore and back-story, the game side or painting the miniatures.

Maw Greenskins

It’s time for my bi-annual blog post. Does that mean twice a year or once every two years? Yes.

Hobby Challenges and the #dailygrot

Last year I decided to paint a goblin miniature every day in August, as part of my first ever Armies on Parade entry. I also found it quite motivational to have to paint a miniature every day.

Painting a Lake-town House

I bought the Lake-town house set on the weekend of release, when I was still foolishly aiming to own everything Games Workshop had produced for Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit. I bashed it together without any thought, didn’t attach half the bits and left some unsightly gaps and sprayed it with some leftover Mournfang Brown spray – I don’t even think they make this any more...

Blood Bowl: Skavenblight Scramblers

My first and only Goblin Team...

Hobbitarn’s Hobby Highlights: Issue 1

Here you’ll find a curated list of tweets and links I’ve found interesting, inspiring or useful this week. I hope to put out a post like this every week going forward, but like everything else blog related I’ll probably get distracted by something small and plastic that needs some paint on it. Today’s a great day to write this article, as it’s the night before...

Unreleased miniatures: My favourites

My collection of Games Workshop’s Middle-earth miniatures has grown and shrank in size over the last 15 years, in which time I’ve picked up a few miniatures that were never released to the public and some made in limited quantities. There were always miniatures though I never thought I’d get to paint. Recently, GW have been releasing some of these gems as part of Made to Orders...

Upcoming Middle-earth SBG Warhammer World & Event Exclusives 2019

Since retiring the old line of exclusives last year, we’ve been waiting to see what would take their place. At this year’s Nova Open, several items were made available for the first time. I’ll update this post with prices and availability as I find out more. These have now been put on the shelves at Warhammer World! Defenders of Lake-town™ – Bard™, Legolas™ and Tauriel™ Similar...
