The Hobby Table 2-21-19

Hey Everyone!  It feels like forever since I last posted a Hobby Table and that is mostly due to a lack of any substantial hobby on my part.  After Waaaghpaca I manage dot catch a nasty bug that laid me up for a few weeks to the point where I didn't have the energy to do much of anything.  Finally, after two weeks, I am back to proper health and have begun to get some hobby moving along as Adepticon begins to loom on the horizon.  On top of finally building and painting models, I have a few other irons in the fire as far as the hobby and the community are concerned.  The one I can speak about is an upcoming Stormcast Strong Fitness Challenge that myself and two other great community members who you know as Hayden and Les will be running in the coming weeks so stay tuned for more information soon.

Interview with Damian a.k.a. LLV

Hey Everone!  Today I have an interview with Damian a.k.a. LLV or as some might know him, The Stats man.  You can hear his updates weekly over on The Honest Wargamers live shows if you like to deep dive on how different armies are doing currently based on events across the world.  I wanted to peel back the label of the Age of Sigmar stats he collates to see more about the hobbyist and what drives him in our hobby.  I hope you enjoy, as I have, finding out more about Damian and learning his Warhammer origin story and learning more about his passion for the hobby and game we all love.

Guest Article : The Joy of Event Coverage with Aaron Bostian

Hey everyone! I’m not Chuck, but he invited me to share some of my thoughts for today’s post. In the past few weeks, I’ve enjoyed some quality time watching distant AoS events. All from the comfort of my living room. And I want to take a few moments to highlight some of the media coverage of a few recent events.

Waaaghpaca 2019 Tournament Recap

Hey Everyone!  Today I want to wrap up my Waaaghpaca 2019 coverage by going through all five of the exceptional games I played while I was at the event.  There was a large variety of lists being run at the event and while there was plenty of lists capable of taking five games the overall event felt very relaxed and focused on community and the hobby.  The spirit of the game was, without a doubt, the focus more so then crushing faces for the sake of a win.  As I said before it was a fantastic event and I encourage everyone to consider going at least once in their wargaming career.  Be sure to check out my overall impressions of the event in my earlier post this week, but now, on to the games!

Waaaghpaca 2019 Event Impressions

Hey Everyone!  I recently attended the legendary event known as Waaaghpaca and today I wanted to share some of my adventure to the frigid north known as Wisconsin.  Waaaghpaca is an event I have only heard about through numerous podcasts over the years and it has been on my list of "must attend" events for a while now.  I finally committed to making the trek to roll dice, meet up with some good friends, make some new ones, and experience Waaaghpaca first hand.  It was very much an adventure full of travel issues, approaching storms, polar vortexes, and impending doom.  I managed to survive, barely, but when I look back at the event I can say without a doubt the event was well worth attending. While the trek might be tough for those living outside the Midwest I want to encourage anyone thinking about attending this event to make the trip.  You will not be disappointed!

How has Warhammer Helped You?

Hey Everyone!  I know I promised Waaaghpaca coverage today (well yesterday as this post is a day late), but I have come down with a bit of the flu and in order to make sure I give the proper amount of energy towards my coverage I opted for a different topic today.  A few days ago the Warhammer TV Facebook Page put up a post titled "How Has Warhammer Helped You?" which is the type of topic I simply love.  At the time of this post, the thread has over 1000 comments with gamers sharing their stories.  It is well worth a read through if you have the time.  Today I wanted to share a bit of how Warhammer has helped me a encourage all of you to share your stories either here or on the original thread over on Facebook.
