The category of favourite game i played 2012 goes to
War of the Ring, march of the Ents! i sadly didnt get as much gaming in as i hoped last year, but htis was just great fun! 20 Ents against thousands of Orcs, whats not to be liked?

well folks I would usually go on about what I aim to be doing this year in the hobby, but i failed so miserably with last years intentions that i'm not going to write anything about future plans..
I've now been painting fulltime professionally for over a year and business is good, when i do get a chance to paint something for myself i'm just going to grab anything from my huge pile of lead and enjoy it!
saying that there will be another post this evening with a little direction.....
