Weekly Hobby Update

No games for me this week 😢 However I did manage to get quite a bit of hobby, after falling into a recent funk.

First up, I started and completed the Swamps featured in a post last week. Moving to the Epic Dwarf Map Pack has required two pieces of Height (0) terrain and so these swamps will fill some of that bill. I was sufficient impressed by the "Battlefield in a Box" pieces that I've ordered some frozen ponds and also some desert palms. Hopefully they'll arrive later this week.

With the Herd completed, thoughts turn to the next project. I have been picking up figures for a Night Stalkers army but have no specific build in mind. Recently I bought some of the Frostgrave Cultists and on the weekend I started painting them. Not sure what unit they will be - or even if they'll make it into the Night Stalkers - but they get me back painting figures.

Yesterday afternoon I sat down with the airbrush and laid down the base colours on the Water Mill I picked up late 2016 from Tabletop World. This is a beautiful piece and will paint up well. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have some progress to show.

Currently working my way through Fracture of the Biel-Tan. Love it that the fluff is advancing and looking forward to reading the final part though I'm not a big fan of the Imperium's accountant, Robert Girly-Man. Hopefully it doesn't bog down into a quest to discover the source of an auditing error in relation to the M3 8mm Bolt manifest.

Finally, I'm expecting a parcel this week from Mierce Miniatures. They had a recent "Buy One, Get One Free" sale on Monsters and I managed to speak nicely to family members and populate my birthday gift haul with new resin. I have eight Mierce Monsters arriving which I'll look to slot into various armies.
