November 2021

13 Years in the hobby and going strong. Disappointed to not make Historicon but blocking out time for the Summer. 

Prepped/primed a large number of Slaughterloo figures to take me through the Winter.

Ready for December

Completed in November

1st game of Burrows andBadgers

A target competition

Sinjon Stinkwater's band is very aggressive.

Guard mouse takes action.

It is a close match.

The Dog, Sir Barkley,  steals the show.

Demelza the Fox sneaks in a shot for the win.

The magic duel is over quickly, Tug McCaw the Raven comes out on top. 

Sir Barkley drops Sinjon in single combat.

What will happen next in "The Warren Percy Affair?"

Carnage and Glory - Slaughterloo

I did a play test of the Carnage and Glory II computer moderated rules with my Slaughterloo figures, including the recently completed British (Orcs). A large division on each side, using 2/3s of my table.

Field of Battle is my go to game, but I thought I would try C&G again since they have a new campaign module. 

Fun game, fast paced (after building the army lists on the computer), rules started to come back to me. Move distances seem a little big and my large sized units (base sizes) seemed to clutter things more than FOB. 

Jury is still out if I will try a full campaign with them. It is interesting to think about how the battles would string together and see the armies start to disintegrate from losses and campaign consumption.

October 2021

No additional complete figures this month, but I did prime/prep enough figures that should take me through March. 

14 Inf units, 6 Cav, 2 Art and some leaders all from the various dog factions in the Slaughterloo range, and 28 Burrows and Badgers figure (everything to play through the 1st campaign supplement).


I won't be at Historicon, very disappointed.

September 2021

Crazy work schedule interrupted most of the hobby time for the month. Some basing, initial work on B&B figures, and prepping for winter painting is all I got done.

Reviewed the Historicon PEL. I am 50/50 for attending right now. I hope work clears up enough that I can take the days as there are some great games I would like to enjoy...highlighted of course by Peter's FOB3 Napoleonics on Sat night. 

Historicon is a no go! Military duty trumps hobby time again. Very disappointed.

August 2021

 Major accomplishment by being ahead on my painting goal for the year. Big push this month saw another 5 x 18 figure units complete...finishing the Orc/British force for Slaughterloo.

I did not make the club game due to work, and I will miss in September too...hope to be back for October.


I am going to work on 12 Burrows & Badgers figures next...while preparing the Dog Slaughterloo figures. I am breaking that batch into 3 parts to make progress in chunks and maybe interspace with more B&B figs

Great painting and gaming month...and only spent $15! Played a solo game and attended my first in person game with the South Jersey Gamers Association. Very fun game of 1939 Bolt Action. 

Painted up 5 Slaughterloo units...5 more Orc units to go for my 2021 goal. 

Prepped 12 Burrows and Badgers figures (and 4 scenery pieces).

Loaded all the Slaughterloo units into the Carnage and Glory computer moderated rules....I think I may use them for the next campaign.
