While I often focus on the art side of our hobby, I don’t completely neglect the gaming side. Be it a well crafted battle report, a look at other game systems, or some thoughts on winning competitions, many have written great articles on the subject.

Prepping for Competition
Kings of War
King of the Hill
Speaking of Kings of War, Swordmaster put together a nice battle report between his Outcasts and a friends Kingdom of Men. Looks a lot like classic Warhammer battle reports with nice balanced blocks smashing into each other.
Conversion Points in Competitions
In today’s age of plastic injection wonder, Rob questions the value of keeping ‘conversion’ points in competition brackets. There is a great conversation in the comments as well as players argue one way or the other.
Story Based Game Event
Old Hammer Battle Report
Learning About Infinity
Shorehammer Review and Pictures
Tournaments and events are a great excuse to create some fun and inventive mini-games and Gren Dal shows us what Shorehammer had for this year, include the Wych Cult Death Match game above, a Gorkamorka race, and a no-holds bar 40k tournament.
Nova Open Picture Dump
Leave it to Greg to kills thousands of collective hours by fellow hobbyists staring at his huge picture dump of Nova Open. There are some fantastic armies in there worth spending the time to check out.
40k Comic Battle
Another comic style battle report, this time by Thomas with a 40k battle between Chaos Space Marines and Tyranids. It’s fun seeing well placed pictures turned into classic comic action and Thomas does a great job narrating the scene.
Hussar Painting Competition
Hussar is Poland’s big painting competition and The Fantasy Hammer gives us a taste of the amazing models entered in his video. Some amazingly talented painters and it’s great seeing the diversity in genres, styles, and compositions.
Loving the End Times and AoS
The End Times was a traumatic experience for many long time Fantasy players, and even more so on the gaming community. Chuck shares his feelings on holding to the fun part of the hobby and story straight into the Age of Sigmar.
Some of My Favorite Board Games
A bit off subject with miniature wargaming, but I share my favorite board games to play with family. During this holiday break we have spent many hours playing these games, many over a nice brew and making memories.
I hope you enjoyed a look back at some of the AMAZING things your fellow hobbyists have done and shared through their blogs. Make sure you visit as many as you can and leave them a comment with your thoughts and encouragement.
