It’s been a really poor couple of years gaming for me, various IRL things getting in the way. I’ve tried to keep up with what’s happening but have been unable to get out and play any games regularly. 2019 is the year I make a come back, both personally and with this site/blog, completing armies,…

Bad Things Happen

A sister site to Potentially Lethal is in development to answer all those question that I keep seeing about Malifaux. Such as: How much do the crew boxes cost? Where are the faction specific Facebook pages? Is there a list of models sortable by various criteria? What good podcasts are there for Malifaux? Is there…

Patreon and me

As part of the development of this site I have signed up for Patreon to help me fund the time it takes to produce content. Mostly any funding will help give me freedom to produce more content for the site which I want to keep free and relatively advert clean. This content will be varied…

Daunting

Over the last six months I’ve seen a lot of changes, from being unemployed to becoming a bookseller and during these changes I’ve let everything else pile up whilst I was sorting these life changes out. This has caused a lot of backlog of information and hobby craft among other things. My ‘man-cave’ (the loft)…

Looking toward 2016

It’s been a weird year both personally and in gaming. I think I may initially have bitten off more than I could chew with the scope of this site and what I wanted to do with it and posting to it has suffered because of that. So over the last few months I’ve been developing…

Map for players around the world

The latest addition to the site is a Google map to pinpoint players around the world and let them list the games they play. This is one of the most frequent questions I see on the various groups and forums I’m on and thought that a central map would be of help. So no matter…

Waugh Armour comes over the horizon

I had received word from Brian that the range of armour for 15mm scale wargaming was reaching readiness so we arranged for a day when I could come through and have another look and chat. So as I got through today Brian was just coming out from the back having cast a load of barrels…

Change

I’ve now added a shop to the site to sell bits and pieces of games. When I tried to do this with the old theme everything blew apart all over the place, so we now have a new theme but still all the same content and erudite writing 😉 Hopefully everything will be back up…
