Middle Earth SBG: Isengard Siege Force!

Good day all and hope you are keeping well, I’m back with (yet another!) detour and this is as a result of COVID restrictions finally letting up here in the UK and finally getting a game in. Now then, the list I took was made up of models that I have had for years –Continue reading “Middle Earth SBG: Isengard Siege Force!”

Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 8

Back at it again after a brief hiatus to refresh and recharge. With the new releases coming out of Forgeworld, I couldn’t resist picking them up and getting to work on them. Starting this time with the Easterling Acolytes, these were a bit different for me as I the only Easterlings that I have areContinue reading “Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 8”

MESBG: Goblin Town Archer – Conversion & House Rules

If you haven’t already, then check out my previous post for a quick read on the inspiration behind this series. Now, this particular conversion is very simple to do, I’ve used Games Workshop parts here but honestly you can just use whatever you have on hand if you feel that it looks right. You canContinue reading “MESBG: Goblin Town Archer – Conversion & House Rules”

Middle Earth: House Rules & Conversions

One of the things that I have always enjoyed about the hobby is converting existing models to suit your own imagination. Sometimes this can be to represent characters from your favourite stories or lore or often to just add individuality to your models.  An aspect of the hobby that goes hand-in-hand with this are houseContinue reading “Middle Earth: House Rules & Conversions”

Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 7

Very quick update today on how the Middle Earth hobby bingo is going. I already have the slow-burner 600 point good army started so for a quick win painted up an old Mordor bolt thrower to check-off the war machine square.  The crew have gone AWOL so if anyone has conversion ideas from regular MordorContinue reading “Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 7”

Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 6

Gondor’s armies are growing and the much needed reinforcements have assembled with the 600 points list now starting to take shape.  Both the infantry and cavalry elements are stuck so things are looking good. Here is a shot of the force coming together: You may notice that I have went back and added some moreContinue reading “Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 6”

CD Terrain Series 2: Ancient Statue

After having a not undeserved break, I have returned with some more progress on the hobby backlog. Expect lots of updates this week with several projects currently underway.  Starting off with another CD Terrain piece I will be using one of the statues from Games Workshop’s Ruins of Osgiliath set that has been collecting dustContinue reading “CD Terrain Series 2: Ancient Statue”

Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 5

Progress slowly but surely made on the Minas Tirith 600 points list with Pippin joining Faramir ready to join the battle. It was actually somewhat difficult to paint the details on Pippin being so small but it is a nice sculpt nonetheless.  New recruits have arrived! Next week I will be working on these KnightsContinue reading “Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 5”

Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 4

Another quick update, this time checking off a hobby bingo square for converting a model. Nothing too ambitious, this is a simple conversion for a Rohan watchman taking a flaming brand from an Uruk-Hai siege troop and replacing it for his sword as well as removing the shield. He will most likely be used inContinue reading “Middle Earth SBG: Hobby Log 4”

CD Terrain Series

This is a method that I have seen crop up on various forums using an old CD as a base for scatter terrain. Anything that uses old leftover bits and pieces is a winner in my eyes and it makes a sturdy base for your terrain piece too. I had started making a few ofContinue reading “CD Terrain Series”
