Dragged into Turbolasers Episode 80: Reflections on 2020

Our favorite GW model of 2020!

In a special extended episode, we celebrate a turbulent, but productive 2020 with guests, Voxmorbus, Red Wet Skeleton, K0rdhal, and Modern Synthesist! First, each of us look back on our favorite personal hobby projects of the year. Then we transition into discussing Games Workshop’s releases during 2020 and pick out some of our favorites. We close out the episode by setting some hobby goals for 2021! Finally, we end by asking a question pertaining to Between the Bolter and Me, and encourage people to email/ message us via Instagram the answer for a chance to win one of two Guardian Spindle Drones from Blackstone Fortress.

Season's Greetings 2020!


Season's Greetings!

Between the Bolter and Me is about to finish its 8th year as a blog! 2020 has been quite a year, with the pandemic changing how we all interact with the hobby. It allowed us to focus more on our podcast Dragged into Turbolasers and develop a consistent, albeit small, streaming schedule! We want to extend our best wishes to all of our readers this holiday season, and are excited to see what 2021 brings!

Blitz Bowl: Halfling Linemen

The Bodimore Byakhees are getting ready to take the field!

Earlier this year we started playing Blitz Bowl, and I created a Halfling team called the Bodimore Byakhees. I finalized a paint scheme for the team by painting the team’s strongest player, the Hefty. Having worked out the scheme, I set about painting a few more of the team members, something that proved to be relatively quick (for me, at least), due to their small size. Having finished two of the team’s linemen, half the team is finished, so I thought it would be a good time to show off the models!

Left at the Bottom of the Garden: Toy Robin

We have long been fans of Andrew Rae and his creations on Statuesque Miniatures, initially due to his range of female heads for scale models. So when he began creating a series of miniatures representing an eclectic group of lost and abandoned toys with Left at the Bottom of the Garden, we couldn’t help but be excited. He has now had two successful Kickstarter campaigns expanding the line, both filled with many delightful models. In this post we wanted to showcase our favorite model from the second Kickstarter, a toy robin!
