Happy 2012

The blog has been quiet over the past week as the holiday break continued. However the time has not been wasted! Over the break I have played seven games with the Ogres and a few things are coming clear. I'll be posting my thoughts on the army and where I'm going with it over the next couple of days.

Hobby wise I painted a Thundertusk and an Ironblaster and finished bases and movement trays for the Ogres. I'm now working on a Stonehorn and hopefully that will be finished over the next week. Jack painted five Venoms and a Razorwing and they are looking great. Hopefully we'll see some pictures up soon. And Charlie painted his necron army over the break - the wonders of the airbrush - and that is looking fantastic. Pictures! 

So some of the topics I'll be canvassing over the next week:

1. The new Vampires

2. Thoughts on Ogre list development

3. Gamesmanship

4. My 2012 Hobby and Gaming Resolutions

I'm really excited about the new VC and was really disappointed last Thursday when I realized they weren't out until the 14th (for some reason I thought it was the 7th). I have ordered a terrorgheist, cairn wraith and necromancer and once the new models are out I can see some Black Knights, Mortis Engine and Varghiest coming my way.

So 2012 will be a big year for Fields of Blood. There are two events already planned - Runefang V in March and the New Zealand Grand Tournament (40k) in July. Also I'll be running the NZ Masters in December. Thanks for your support and look forward to providing you with continuing hobby comment.

  1. Looking at flying over to NZ around Julyish this year to try my hand at NZ gaming, and take on mr Burfield. What tournies/campaign weekends might be on around that time? prefer WHFB.
