Revamping Things!


As you may have noticed, I've deleted all the posts here. I was starting to despair over actually having any hobby time and Tales From Farpoint was beginning to groan under all the random gubbins posted on it.

Worry not though! I've backed it all up on a BACKUP BLOG which will stay online for as long as required so if folks do fancy perusing it, please feel free!

I do have some plans for Farpoint though! While I have things on the go for my own sculpts, I do want to keep exploring some of the other ideas I've been faffing around with over the last few years!

The problem I've faced is the sheer weight of stuff that I've posted over the last few years and it's combined weight has been utterly crushing all the increasingly feeble attempts I've made to boot some life back into my hobby so I took the drastic measure of clearing all the content off and starting again!

Another issue I've had is my drop off in interest in 40k and Rogue Trader. I originally started this blog to cover all sorts of Oldhammery sorts of stuff but in recent years, I've found myself less interested in Games Workshop's products and pulled more into some of the other fantastic games and settings that have come and gone over the years!

Oddly enough, I've found the process rather empowering and am rather looking forward to getting back to basics again.

Here's a quick preview of what I plan on working on after I return from my holidays:

 Classic Warzone

Void 1.1

 Vor: The Maelstrom

Battletech Reimagined

Whilst I have pretty much got over the GW obsession, I do have a fondness for painting 6mm gubbins so there may be some more Epic scale bits and bobs appearing from time to time!

Now I don't know if I am going to paint 6mm, 15mm or 28mm stuff but I am looking forward to re-exploring the joys of wargaming!

All the best!


  1. Looking forward to this Richard, and glad to see you're back (again), and I certainly enjoyed your old postings. I'm sure the new will be just as good, if not better :-)

  2. Thanks!

    I do have a bit of a habit of trying to pick up my hobby before flubbing things don't I?

    Hopefully I will be able to get some sort of semi regular updates put together now that I've culled the blog a bit!

    All the best and thanks for sticking with reading my ramblings!


  3. I'll be glad to see your work and your painting no matter the particular system. While I'm a fairly dedicated 80s vibe collector myself I think diversity is a darn good thing for the hobby. I haven't said so nearly often enough, but your painting is really very good and your sculpting and conversion are top notch. Looking forward to whatever direction you might go.

  4. A clean slate can really help with finding your gaming mojo! Good luck with these projects, and all the best in 2017!
