400th post! Nothing like a random milestone to celebrate success!

Congratulations to me!

As the title says, there's nothing quite like a random milestone to celebrate, and celebrate it I will!

Doesn't actually seem that long since I was writing a similar article for my 300th post, and when I look back I find that it really isn't. It was actually on the 24th January this year, so I've managed 100 posts in just 8 months. Blimey, I have been busy haven't I! Here's to the next 100, can I do that by Christmas do you think, haha?

I think therefore it's perhaps an appropriate time to drop another hint about my forthcoming project. This one is going to be in the form of a word.


The next clue may not be so obvious, it may be hidden in a picture or alluded to in a post title, you'll just have to keep checking!

Till next time,

Kill Team review - celebrating Games Workshop's new approach and designing my next kill team.

Greetings all!

Welcome to my 'review' of the Kill Team revised rules, along with my own thoughts on the approach we've seen from Games Workshop recently, and the thought processes behind my latest kill team. Oh yes, and I'm running a kill team campaign - see how at the end of the article!

Hobby update 19/9/16 - Painting underway once more.

Greetings all,
Seems like ages since I last wrote a post on here! I've been on holiday in the meantime, in a cottage without wifi, at which point I discovered just how much I use my phone to stay in touch with things!

Still, I'm back now and refreshed, even if holidays in the UK with two kids under 4 and a 7 hour drive each way don't quite bring the same relaxation levels as sitting round a pool in the sun for a fortnight!

I did take a few models with me and whilst I didn't get much opportunity, things have progressed a lot from the last update!

Hobby update and to-do list

Greetings all, it's been a busy time for The Burning Eye recently, hence the lack of many meaningful posts on the blog. The major reason for that is of course Hero for a Day, which as I hope you'll have seen from last week's post was an absolute blast, and a huge success, so we'll be doing it all again next year (probably in September to avoid all the summer holidays).
