F.B.R. M.I.A.

A recent game versus @amysrevenge 
Excuses, Excuses, Excuses:

Massive apologies to all those who have been following me on the blog and twitter.  Life has been a bit of a challenge the last few weeks.  We have had new students attending the school I teach at, and although I love working with any kids, this group of students have been a challenge, and so my day job is now taking more energy than it used to.  Additionally, the school district I work for has entered the first phase of strike action, and I just happen to be the union representative at my school, so a lot of my free time has been dedicated to communicating with my staff instead of interacting with the awesome Warhammer Fantasy online community.  All of this plus a bit more stress from other angles left me burnt out, and with a complete lack of energy to but into FBR.

The game was Vampires versus Dwarfs!

Transition Time:


But now that life is settling down the blog is going to be up and running again, right?  Unfortunately, it looks like the four hours plus of time I was dedicating to the blog will need to be reassigned. My wife and I teach in a small community about 7000km away from our home town.   We both want to move our family back home.  However, the competition for teaching jobs there is so high that it will take us several years of subbing before we land a full time position. Subbing for several years doesn't appeal to either of us, so we are looking at retraining, or starting an online business, which means less time for the hobby, and no time for hobby side projects :-(
I lost the game in the end, but it was
the best I've had in months...Thanks Mike!

I'm Lovin It:


All this said I'm still lovin Warhammer and will continue to paint, play, and tweet about my hobby!  Thanks to everyone who has supported and read the blog, and apologies to my lack of comments on many of the blogs I've been following!

Thanks for reading,


Mike

Wicked Pic Wednesday: Chaos Marauders


Spreading the word about awesome Warhammer Fantasy online content is the reason I started this blog, and so Wicked Pic Wednesday will be an occasional mid-week post, which spot lights some awesome work on the web!  I won't be trying to find epic pics like these every week, but when I do come across them, I'll be posting by this title!

Terrorgheist - Competitive Challenge

The Terrorgheist is the latest monster for Warhammer Fantasy, and continues a long trend of bringing massive monsters to each of the Warhammer armies. Many players around the web have suggested it's a poor choice, including Bad Dice Podcaster Mark Wildman. But some players, are taking on the challenge to use what seems to be a less than optimal choice...


So what's the problem with this enormous bat?
  1. Many suggest the worst possible regeneration save is like having no save at all!
  2. Secondly the massive base size means it's easier to shoot off the table...
  3. And the base size also means it can be difficult to move.

#Miniature Monday: Gamer Cred

More of My Mini's:

As mentioned previous I've decided I'll be including more of my own work on the blog.  This post, as suggested by the title, details my gaming history, but you can expect #Miniature Monday to include, painting progress updates, battle reports, and more!  Be sure to let me know what you think?

I'd love to see a Hero Quest type game added to the Warhammer Fantasy line of products.  

In the Beginning:

I was first hooked on fantasy in general by playing the board game Hero Quest.  About a year later I was taken to a proper gaming store and bought fourth edition High Elves, Silver Helms and Goblins only to realize they weren't actually painted as seen on the box.  I soon got over my disappointment, when I started to grasped just how cool a game Warhammer Fantasy was!

Weekly Roundup: New Vampire Counts

Weekly Roundup?

The Weekly Roundup will be replacing what was my Mid-week Inspiration posts. The Mid-week Inspirational started as motivational pics with a bit of commentary, but has since turned into a roundup of Warhammer Fantasy online content, so Weekly Roundup is a more fitting name, I think?

This month's White Dwarf has kicked up quite a fuss on the interwebs because it contains new Vampire Counts rules.  Not just rules, but official Warhammer rules!  While visiting family in Atlantic Canada I was able to drop by a GW to purchase the White Dwarf less then a week after it's release, but they had completely sold out! Fortunately for me, a good friend gave me his copy!
