Hobby Year 2020 in retrospect and prospects for 2021

 A weird year

I guess we all know, why 2020 was so different, so I'll focus on this blogpost in analysing how it impacted my hobby life...

Final rush to finish the painting year 2020 - Updated 7th of Jan 2021.

So many started miniatures... 

FINAL SCORE is 581+107=688

As my (not so good?) habit is, I quite often quickly paint up miniatures to be "battle field ready", but not quite finished. Then, as the end of the year approaches, I focus on finishing as many as I can. I never manage to finish all, that I've started, hence my painting tracking on this blog separates miniatures finished (started before this year) and miniatures painted from scratch.

Examples of my final rushes in recent years:

I always post my latest paintings in Instagram - my username is "wanhaherrat" (old sire T) - follow me there for latest updates! This blogpost contains first a summary of miniatures finished since summer and then I'll update more pictures, as I finish them before end of the year. First half of the year on my painting desk is reviewed here.

As I'm publishing this blogpost on 19th of December my count is:

  • 19th of December: 468 painted from scratch and 83 finished 
  • 26th of December 491 painted from scratch and 83 finished  (+23)
  • 29th of December 515 painted from scratch and 83 finished  (+24)
  • 1st of January 581 painted from scratch and 107 finished  (+90)
  • 7th of Jan Update: more pictures and YouTube video spins added
  • 8th of Jan Update: more pictures and YouTube video spins added

ASOIAF: How to destroy a 50p. Lannister army in just three rounds?

 Brutal efficiency, fire and blood

In our Map based campaign For the Throne my southern domain had, inconveniently for a Lannister player, expanded to his borders and he declared a challenge to me. It was duly accepted!

ASOIAF: Stark Barbeque

First go with Mother of Dragons

I guess everybody in ASOIAF TMG community have waited and feared for the arrival of the DRAGONS! And now they are here! If you've been reading my blog, you might remember, that I've been dancing with the dragons before too... but this was the first time I was able to actually play with them!

War of the Five Kings - Fall Season - two first rounds

 What!?!?! Nigthswatch are messing with  politics and wars of seven kingdoms...

As reported we started a new campaign with 12 aspiring lordlings striving for the coveted Iron Throne.

I'm running Nightswatch. In the spring I played with Targaryens and did ok, but KNOWING what is coming for Targs, I chose to field the Brothers in black. They certainly have a tool kit to tailor a list for any occasion and against any opponent.
