Good ol' games back on the menu: Star Wars Legion and Blood Red Skies

 Decisions made

In my 2021 retrospect and 2022 plans post I wrote, that  SWL would be one of the five focus games for 2022 and BRS would be a game I would come back to (as would Infamy Infamy be as well, see a separate post on that). This plan has now come reality as I've has a pretty good "heat" with Star Wars Legion and Blood Red Skies playing has also been started recently and next games for both of them shall be played next week! 

At our club we have plenty of suitable terrain for Star Wars. Mates from the club have even adapted Dead Man's Hand rules to Star Wars. They call them Mos Espoo :-D

With Blood Red Skies I have so far only played with Imperial Japan. My plan is to paint some planes for Finland and Soviets too.

Hobby year 2021 in retrospect and plans for 2022

A good wargaming year

Looking back at 2021... we learned to cope with Covid-19 and with 2 vaccinations at least my hobby life was pretty normal, excluding large tournaments. Read on to learn about my wargaming and it's high lights.

Armies on Parade: House Baratheon - WIP - updated 16th of April 2022

Ours is the Fury!

When I got the opportunity to buy a large collection of Baratheons from a friend, I just couldn't resist it! Baratheons really don't play into my usual play style (strike fast, strike hard), but I really like many of the miniatures like Stag Knights and Rose Knights. So why the heck not!

Warfare 2021

After a couple years break, I was fortunate to be able to travel to a Wargames Show again - just before the Omicron variant of Covid messed things up again! So we dared beyond the borders of EU, all the way to the misty and far far away Island of Britain! Warfare was now arranged in a new location, I guess to make it safer. My experience from 2017 was very good, so I was really looking forward to this!

2nd half of 2021 on my painting desk - Updated 5th of Jan 2022

 Lots of ASOIAF and a mix of other stuff...


Here's a summary of minis I've painted since my review of H1 and a focus on ASOIAF painting.

As it stands on Christmas Eve:

I've been very lazy or simply not focused on finishing stuff, that I've started earlier than 2021, 
only six more after H1. 

Then again, 259 minis painted and finished from scratch during H2 
and this number will increase significantly still before years end as I have many a minis
I've started but not yet finished, including a whole Baratheon for ASOIAF!
So follow this blog post to find out how far I get!
