While GW continues to knock out new releases at an unrelenting pace, I have found that my hobbying muse has been pointed in a somewhat less conventional in the last few weeks. The lack of face to face gaming and events to attend over 2021 has pushed me firmly into focusing on fun hobby projects rather than the grind of army building, which has led me into the decaying bosom of the Turnip28 hobby movement.
In short, Turnip28 is a tabletop miniatures game and setting developed by British artist Max FitzGerald. The world of Turnip28 is a combination of postapocalyptic with napoleonics and root vegetables, and it’s “about turnips”. Learn all about it from Max’s Patreon here.
To be clear I have 0% interest in conventional historical wargaming, but weird wars napoleonics with a side order of Blanchitsu aesthetics? Sign me up straight away!
I managed to pick up a box of Perry Miniatures Mercenaries at Salute end of last year, picked up a few random additional sprues of knights, French Napolenics, ordered some of the official custom3d Turnip28 bits, some 3d printed mushrooms from Epic Basing and Dark Fantastic Mills and the picked out some random shit from my bits box. The end result is my starter force for Turnip/Shroom28 which has the working title of the 13th Wyrdshire Irregulars – ‘The Deathcaps’ . . .
