A thank you.

I wasn't planning on making a post this weekend, but wanted to publicly thank Andy of 'Da Gobbo's Grotto' fame for the marvellous dice bag that I found on the doormat of Awdry Towers on my return from work.  This was an incredibly generous prize draw giveaway as part of the New Year review on his Blog.  The bag itself is beautifully made by Becky from the 'Luck Orc' and has the Nerd Herd's logo emblazoned across the front - not sure if this makes me an honorary member though?  

This amazing prize just goes to reaffirm my belief that Andy has a wonderful generosity of spirit and such enthusiasm for the hobby we all know and love.  Through the setting up of a Table Top Gaming Club at school, I was introduced to Bushido by one of the pupils, which has subsequently become our game of choice on a Wednesday afternoon.  As a result 'Da Gobbo's Grotto' has become my 'go to' Blog for inspiration.  Andy's creativeness knows no bounds and he is always coming up with new and imaginative ways to spend my pocket money - as I write this I am awaiting my delivery of cherry blossom trees from China!
So my new dice bag will become my 'Bushido' dice bag  and on that note a couple of quick 'work in progress' shots of my Savage Wave starter set.  I managed to get these demonic creatures on the board last week, sadly not painted, and they proved great fun tearing around and plunging everything into darkness.

Once again a huge thank you to Andy.

    1. Thank you Dai, they are referred to in the game as Bakemono. Physically they are very weak, but as a horde become difficult to deal with and have a few nifty tricks too. I keep thinking of them as Gremlins from the film of the same name.
