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.

While I cannot count it as my own hobby I do want to give a big shout out to my local club, Ligonier Legion, for surprising me with a very special cake to celebrate me being chosen as a Warhammer Hero.  In truth, if it wasn't for them I doubt I would have really been as motivated so early on in Age of Sigmar's release.  My local group all but crumbled for Fantasy, but I didn't want to see the group pass into memory so I took up the reins to keep Fantasy alive and now we are a thriving community once again!  It is fun to run events and share the hobby with all of them and the surprise celebration was a good laugh and very humbling.

As far as my Hobby Table goes I have managed to build some Khinerai and finally begin painting what is possibly my last unit of Witch Aelves in preparation for some pickup games at Adepticon.  I am still hunting 20-30 more of the old metal Witch Aelves so I can officially claim the title of having 200+, but it has become harder and harder so time will tell if I and when I reach that goal.  Either way, I have a weekend of painting ahead of me so I plan to make a lot of progress on the unit.

A final bit of hobby news is that I am working on some shirts to put out in the wild.  When I ran my 1000th Twitter follower giveaway I was a bit blown away by how many people were interested in a Strength Hammer shirt.  While the final design may change as I find a good place to "set up shop" for these shirts I am planning to make the current design available to purchase at cost for those who participate in the upcoming Challenge I mentioned earlier.

Other than all that I can confirm that the first episode of the Strength Hammer Podcast has been recorded, but due being sick I have not had a chance to edit or upload it, but I plan to have that done by this Sunday so keep an eye out on my Twitter and Instagram for when it drops!  Until then, Happy Hobbying!
