About Me

My photo
I'm a bit of a born-again wargamer! I played many of the Games Workshop games when I was in my teens and early twenties, but left the hobby behind when I went to University. Over the last few years I have gradually got back into it and am literally having a ball! I'll play pretty much anything now, ranging from ancient historical to the far future! I think that I get more out of the painting side of things than actually playing, but that might just be because I get more opportunity. Hence the title...this blog is all about the colour of war!!

Lost and found - my painting mojo!

The past couple of months have seen me do practically no painting. For some reason I just totally lost my mojo and was quite uninterested in it. I think the root cause was pushing myself to paint all the Malifaux stuff, but never actually managing to get a game of it. But I think I've finally found it again and I picked up a brush the past two nights and finished off a couple of Malifaux figures that had been sitting half done and bugging me.
The big factor in getting back to it is the insane amount of fun I had in George's 7TV game and the release of the new In Her Majesty's Name rules. I picked up the Black Dragon Tong company for the latter and I have some plans to make a couple of 7TV villains that would allow a lot of crossover use of the figures.

Also, this coming weekend is Wappinshaw, the Glasgow games convention, and I'm really looking forward to that. Details for anyone interested can be found here: http://wappinshaw.blogspot.co.uk/


  1. Nice figures!

    I'm the same; for the first 3 months of the year I did practically no painting. In my case, I think it's the long period of gloomy weather that has put me off :-( .

    Anyway, Wappinshaw is on - I'll be there!

    1. Thanks! It sucks when I get these blocks, but I usually find it's something new and shiny that brings me back. The hardest thing is definitely clearing the half painted stuff that scunnered me in the first place!

      Glad you're going to Wappinshaw! Should be a good show this year.
