It is with some regret that I tell you I have made the decision to wind up the Paint and Biscuits blog.
It was a tough decision, but in the end I have had to face the fact that, what with having a very young and all the other demands on my time I don’t have the time to keep up the blog. Rather than do a half-arsed job and stress myself out over not being able to to things properly, better to draw a line under everything and concentrate on looking after my family and actually getting the occasional toy painted – and maybe even play a game.
Anyone who will miss my slightly indignant musings on the gaming scene need not completely despair as I have been asked to be a contributing writer to the Shell Case Blog. So I will still be able to address the world with my elegantly crafted rantings on the world of toy soldiers without the associated administrative burdens.
Thanks to everyone who has read my posts, especially those who have commented and added to the discussion. Thanks also to everyone who has posted links to my posts to help spread word of my blogging efforts. I’m hugely grateful to everyone who has contributed to my having had just under 11,000 hits in a little under a year.
Take care, keep painting and may your dice roll high.
I’ll see you whenever Phil agrees to run an article of mine.
I am truly stunned like really really stunned.
Never in my wildest days would I think I could hit 1000 posts when I started this blog never mind the fact I have been doing a post a day everyday for most of the blogs history.
Thank you all for keeping coming back and actually let hit some (in my humble opinion) amazing numbers.
So I have had the beast for a few days now and I have tried him with pNemo and pStryker (why? well thats my 2 Cygnar casters I have used so far :P)
But first some initial thoughts you have already had these hundreds of times already on the internet probably but I am going to go there just for completeness :P…
This grand statement was prompted by me building one last night whilst watching Battlestar Galactica - Exodus parts 1 & 2 if anyone's interested - and how much I enjoyed building it. I worked out I've built at least 10 Rhino chassis over the years (with 3 more sat under my desk) and all of them very immensely satisfying. And here's why...
It's review time again and this time it's the turn of A Call to Arms: Noble Armada by Mongoose Publishing. I first came across Mongoose when my brother and fellow Alliance member, @Chris_S_79 pointed me in their direction. Being a total sucker for anything with space ships I didn't need much convincing to get in touch with them. And, thanks to their incredible kindness, this will actually be the first of two reviews, the other being Mongoose's Star Fleet game.
