Goblin Trader Hobby Store – the place to be in Barcelona

Have I mentioned it already? Probably few times in many different occasions, but if not, I’m doing it now (again) – next week I move to Barcelona! I’m super excited about this. Barcelona is in my top 5 places to live. Warsaw still remains number one, but I feel (or rather we – me and my wife), the shift would be good for us. It’s not going to be permanent, but at least two years will be nice time to have it there. Of course, it means our life will change a bit – the blog will become little bit less about travelling, but well it’s going to be still about games. And that’s what matters the most. Anyway… new place means entirely new setting and new gaming community. It’s going to be hard to fit in 100% like in Poland. After all I will be newbee, with only communicative Spanish. And believe me Spanish (or Catalan) is necessary in Catalunya. The people out there are not so good in English. Not at all. So, …

Madrid – with visit in Atl├íntica Juegos

Recently I don’t add that much content here. I really regret that, but since I got back to Poland I have little bit too many things over my head – things so boring, not even worth to mention here. But, on the plus side – I paint a lot. I finally had one desk with good comfy chair and adequate lamp and I can sit every evening and paint until late night. At the beginning of June I’m about to play a game of Warhammer Fantasy Battle with my old friend (I’ll playing Skavens, not sure againt which army though…). The thing is, I still haven’t finished painting the least minimum to deploy whole army painted. So, I have little race against time here – still around 15 Clanrats left plus I’m thinking who will be the general – probably Ikit Claw, and he need to be painted too. Tough choices ahead me. …plus, I paint simultaneously Sir Zachary Fiercebatten III and his hounds (Wolsung Skirmish Game), as a counterbalance to swarm of rats. Pfff…all …

Goblin Trader, Madrid aka Land of Plenty (WOW!)

At the beginning of May I’ve been in Madrid for 5 days. It was our short stop between Mexico and Poland. As we never have been in Madrid, we’ve done lots of sightseeing with my wife, but as you can probably imagine my thoughts were concentrated on something completely different. For the first time since October 2014 I was in the city with so many shops, clubs and generally wargaming communities scattered around. After long stay in Central America and Mexico, Madrid seemed to me like a promised land. The best what I could get during that tine were few gaming shops in Mexico City, but comparing to European shops, their offer is limited. So, I was really anticipating the visit in a hobby store in Madrid, especially few of my paints were out, and also I was crying in despair for new brushes. I knew I don’t have too much time (I would be happy to visit all of places on wargaming map of Madrid:) and I need to choose at most two. My …
