Happy New Warhammer

Er hello, it's Boy 1 here, I am doing a post for Mummy as she is very fried tried tired after Christmas, she is asleep on the sofar with lots of rappers wrappers from After Eight choc mints and bits of tinsel in her hair.

Every few minutes she half wakes up and shouts "Does anyone want a mince pie?" Daddy says she has Post Christmas Hostess syndrome..

Most important is I got some Warhammer for Christmas.  It looks like this.

You buy the figures.

Then you spend ages painting them with special paint with cool names like Goblin Green, Devlan Mud and Skull White and oooh, Bleached Bone. Nice.

And then you play complicated battles with them, there is a long rule book and you have rulers and stuff to measure the distance that your weapons can fire. 

Mummy got quite interested in my Ork figures, I showed her all the paints they needed and explained at length their weapons and armour and boots and stuff..

When she saw all the paints, Mummy stomped off muttering that she could not believe that an Ork has more nail polish and paints and accessories than she has..
Mummy is back on the sofa now...

"No Mummy, I don't want a mince pie.."


  1. Do NOT tell those boys about all the cognitive development that Warhammer sparks. But you knew that, right? Happy New Year, Blighty, hoping for more of your humor in 2012.

  2. Oh, poor Mummy! She needs a vacation from all this holiday hullabaloo. Soon....very soon, it will all be over. No more mince pie for another year.

    Happy New Year, Blighty!

  3. Apologize to Mummy at once and go buy her some OPI!

  4. A friend's son was obsessed with this warhammer stuff once upon a time and I know his poor mother would wake in the night after dreaming she was being attacked by the delightful figures. Poor woman was feeling outflanked.
    Happy New Year Blights!!

  5. Hello Boy 1 - my mother is also laid out on the sofa with Nigel Slater and a large glass of water.

    She says that all she can face today is some soup.

    I've had to remove the 3'x2' box of chocolates from beneath the coffee table because every time she sticks her hand in, she weeps a lot and mutters about power hooping, Hugh Jackman and harpoons.

    I love Warhammer too. Also, Rick Riordan books.

    Happy New Year Blighty!

  6. my friend used warhammer paint as nail polish once... hehe

  7. Dear Boy 1, Your artwork on the Warhammer creatures looks superb! I would be hiding the paint however just in case your Mum decides she needs more glitz/violence in her life! I hope you and your brother are bringing her cups of tea/glasses of G&T as required, are patting her hand gently on occasion, and above all are speaking in very quiet voices to aid her convalescence. We are all relying on you! Lindaxxx

  8. Yeh well thanks for all your comments and that, er, Mummy has now got off the sofa and at the moment is getting really cross with the fairy lights she is taking off the tree, must go, don't want to miss any good new vocab.. Boy 1

  10. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
    give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

  11. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.

  12. I am curious to find out what blog system you're using? I'm having some small security issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more risk-free.

    Do you have any suggestions?
