Hobby Shack in Wicklow Town to close this month


I’m sad to say that¬†the Hobby Shack in Wicklow town will close for the last time on the 21st of June ūüė¶

Ian who’s run the shop for the last 3 years has decided to close up and move onto pastures new and perhaps get in a bit of gaming.

He’s having a closing down sale so now would be a great time to visit. ¬†I’m sorry to see him shut down, he provided a¬†great venue for the local gamers, not least the last chancers. ¬†

Best of luck in whatever venue you decide to go onto next and see you Knavecon in August Ian


“Hi all
So this post may come as a bit of a surprise to you but sadly the Hobby Shack will be closing it’s doors on the 21st of this month.
I have not made this decision lightly but it is the right decision for me and the shack.
The last two years have been great and I have enjoyed the time in the shack immensely.
I have a new adventure ahead and I am looking forward to getting my teeth into this.

I wish to thank so many people customers, suppliers and gaming clubs for travelling far and wide. The town of wicklow has been very good to me and a heartfelt thanks to all the business owners for there help and support over the last two years.”

Invasion of the Baggins Snatchers! – an Oldhammer Presentation


I’m REALLY excited about this. ¬†MrSaturday and the oldhammer crew are running a participation game. Let me step out of the way and let the man speak…

The Oldhammer group will be running a participation skirmish game at KnaveCon 3, a 4 player competitive/cooperative/whatever ye like yerself raid in which rival fimir warbands have come across a sleepy halfling village ripe for the plucking. Each warband is desperate to take more than it’s share of plunder and captives back to it’s mist-shrouded home, and they must make sure to grab as much loot as they can before the halflings mysterious protectors arrive to spoil the party…


“Dirach Grunsgul stepped out from the cloying mists surrounded the wyrdstone and regarded the halfling settlement with a mixture of joy and disbelief. How had such an apparently defenceless village survived this long? He could see pens of sheep, stacks of corn and fat pigs amongst the small houses. There wasn’t even a defensive wall surrounding the place. He shook his head in wonder. Close by, another fimir group emerged from the morning fog. It must be Murdach and his raiders thought Grunsgul. He turned to Goll and his warriors and gave them the signal to attack. Presently the screaming began. The huge fianna fimm Odhran’s face wrinkled into a toothy grin, and he hefted his mace and plodded after the others.

The clan would eat well tonight.”
