One thing i noticed is that I painted ZERO fantasy of Sci fi that was on the list, apart from the D&D characters. I think thats very indicative of where my main effort is at the moment, and very telling that i added many more NEW models to the list that were historical rather than painting the sci fi and fantasy on the existing list. oh well! Whatever makes one happy i guess, no point painting when its a chore, you have to be in the mood to be motivated to paint whats in front of you, or choose another project!

​I have shot a video update of my last months progress and it's up on our channel HERE:

I hope your hobby projects are going well? Let us know what youve been up to!

Podcast EP24: A chat with Jon Russell.

In this bumper episode, we are joined by Jon Russell of Warlord Games fame. In addition to his dedicated work for Warlord, Jon is a multifaceted wargamer and also veteran of many years service.

In this episode we spend time learning about Jon's wargaming pedigree, before learning more about his role at Warlord, the writing of 'Bolt Action: Korea', and Jon shares with us what he can about what Bolt Action V3 might look like, and the 'Raiders Attack!' Supplement that still has much life left in it.

All this plus Warlord event support, balance in tournaments and other definitely non-controversial(!), highly entertaining and informative topics. Sit back and enjoy a chat with Jon, and us, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
