Every Tuesday our Hobby HQ blog sums up what we've been doing outside of our dayjobs. We share pictures of what we've built and painted, including WIP projects. We'd love to see some of your work, too! If this week's blog tells us anything, it's that despite everyone being crazy busy, things are still somehow getting built, primed and painted. But the mountain of projects is slowly piling up, there's no doubt about that. Going to start with something spectacular that Grantt has been working on.

With all the hype around Avengers: Endgame dominating social media, you could be forgiven for thinking that everything else had ground to a standstill. But the mighty god-machine of the tabletop gaming industry strides on, and we've noticed some very cool things happening. The first that springs to mind is Looncurse. This looks like an absolute delight: bonkers goblins bouncing into battle against the Sylvaneth. It looks like the game comes with its own campaign, which is a nice touch. The main draw is of course going to be the miniatures. It's impossible to put into words just how much character...

We hope you all had a lovely Easter break. Whether the act of cramming yourself with chocolate had a spiritual dimension or not, we trust you all enjoyed yourselves. With the industry relentlessly delivering new games, miniatures and terrain options, it’s no surprise that we came back to a fierce torrent of news. So here’s what caught our collective eye. First up, Slaanesh is getting its own Battletome. For a time, Games Workshop was a little muted on the Slaanesh front, but has now found a way to present these weird and wonderful daemons in a contemporary way. They’re sleek,...
