Star Wars Legion….just one more toy

I’ve broken the promise I made to myself that I’d not get distracted any further by terrain or toys.

I’ve just picked up the Hasbro Rogue One U Wing, which is riduclously out of scale for the action figure it comes with, but almost perfect for Legion. Touch of top coat and some panel lining and I think this will look pretty awesome on the tabletop. You should be able to find this for less than £25, so pretty resonable (oh and it also fires nerf darts!)

There’s no such thing as too many projects…

It’s taken slightly longer than planned for me to start up this blog, which is really also the story of my hobby projects too.

I hope to use this blog to share the various hobby bits and pieces I am working on and engage with like minded folks who might find my ramblings interesting.

Bit of background first.  By day I’m a spreadsheet wizard, but by night I transform into a hobby butterfly.  Like a lot of hobbyists my age I grew up with Games Workshop and Dungeons and Dragons in the 1980s, left the hobby for a while (for real world stuff) and came back as a proper grown up with actual money to spend.  I also suddenly found that the thing I enjoyed the most is the modelling and painting side of the hobby.  In particular starting multiple projects at the same time before getting distracted onto something else (ironic given my day job is in project management).

At the moment I am playing board games about once a week with a small group of friends and am also a member of the Matlock and Dales Wargames club which meets once a month.

Hobby wise my main focus at the moment is on the excellent 7TV by Crooked Dice Game Design Studios and Star Wars Legion (because it’s Star Wars and I am of an age!)

So let the blogging begin…..
