Careful, they byte

If you scroll through your history or tap into your short term memory terminals, you’ll remember how I warned you that I would end up with quite a bit of non knitting posts this year. Well, heres one.

Craft medium: Paint

Subject: Battletech

Subcategory: Geek

Clan Seafox

As many of you know, Engel loves wargames. 40k, Fallout and Battletech to name three.

He loves collecting them, playing them, building them…just not painting them.

I on the other hand will throw up a 404 error when confronted with a sea of grey plastic minis…

Bolan Defenders

With this in mind, I started to chip away at a bit at this sea of grey. And then found out that there was a Battletech tournament. With that, all projects on hold and the paint was out!


The tournament has passed now, Engel placed an amazing…13 out of 15. Our friends Ratman (10th) and…a friend whose online user name I don’t actually know, placed third.

He had a good time, people complimented my painting and I had a very fun weekend with the terrors instead. And all my soft crafts where out in full! Needle felting, knitting, spinning, kumihimo, latch hook, oh it was glorious!

And with that, I can hear them calling for more attention. Apologies for the lack of puns, a bit hard to fit all the nuts and bolts in sometimes, and trying to do so was making my screws come loose!

Until next post, which I can guarantee will be glorious in it’s woolem finery, stay safe!
