25th Blue Miniatures Badge

Whoop! I have been trying to get one of these for 25 prior

Miniature Musings of a Bear

So for the 25th badge I thought it needed to be something special, but first if you want to see the others then follow the link. (Blue Miniatures Badge)

So who wins the big one which is a nice milestone? Well first I have been holding on for this one, as the man is a great painter. Plus I think I have made him wait long enough now to release his badge 😀 Well done Rich, it was too easier to give you the first one 😉

An awesome but simple job executed well, make sure you check out his blog LINK, that he is going to update more often now..

Token boxes and #WAAC

Hi guys,
I know it has been a while, but here is a double whammy! BAMM!
First things first, a good friend at cutITcustom sent me a token box to test out, specifically for Warmachine/Hordes tokens, and I must say it is perfect, the tokens are organised so no more searching around for that knock down token. He now has extra colours and can even do custom stencils for you to top it off and really make it personal. His website is a dream to use, with his stencil creator.
The prices are great, I sprayed mine silver and it taken to the plasticard spot on.
Here are the images for you all to oggle and links will all be posted at the end of the blog.

Now onto other matters, #WAAC or Wargamers All Against Cancer, you would have seen @docbungle tweeting maniacally about this on twitter (obviously) and posting on his blog (link at end of the blog post) and on Facebook. This is a great cause and I have been blasting emails around in the hope of getting some more attention to this and getting more support.
I am proud to say that the list has been fantastic with some big hitters in the hobby world adding their might and wares to the cause, there will be a raffle for the event for all those that donate to the just giving page (again link at the end) trust me when I say winners will not be disappointed in anything they win.
The cause is Macmillan Cancer Trust and they really do help with a great cause and let’s face it nearly all of us in one way or another will be affected by cancer and its evil on day.

The list on supporters grown today, adding Infamy Miniatures to the ever growing list of contributors, Infamy and all other supporters are offering so much and making this ‘event’ a real thing and with their help we’ll hit the aimed goal and smash past it I am sure.

Here is the full list of companies offering their help in some respect.

  • Privateer Press
  • Wyrd Games
  • Siege Studios
  • Counter Attack Bases
  • Goldfish of Justice
  • Black Hat Miniatures
  • Infamy Miniatures
  • Ax Faction
  • GCT Studios

This is a truly spectacular list and DocBungle is compiling the list of guys who have added their voice this week.

As promised here are all the links you need

Beared-itorial #WAAC is coming

A very worthwhile cause that in one way or another can and most likely will affect us all at somepoint

Miniature Musings of a Bear

Welcome to a special edition of the Beared-itorial.

Recently I have received the news that my mum has cancer. We are still waiting for the true extent of the cancer, but one thing that has been a great help to my mum and dad is the MacMillan Nurses.

They have come in like a whirlwind of help, information and pain killers and already I am grateful that they have been there.

With this in mind I would love to do something for them, supporting Macmillan while they support others.

Now I could have stayed in a bath of baked beans or gone running, but I am a wargamer and this is a wargaming blog and the wargaming community has shown they are a fantastic bunch (yes I am massaging your egos).

So here is what I am suggesting 24 hours of wargaming (this will include board games and MtG to…
