The Hag O' Hags

Hello readers,

let me introduce to you Granny Weatherwax. Some also call her "Aaoograha hoa" (She Who Must Be Avoided) or "K'ez'rek d'b'duz" (Go Around the Other Side of the Mountain). She is the most powerful witch on the Discworld and now she decided to give a visit.

Freebooter´s delight: Fruit in rum

Ahoi landlubbers,

today something completely different! As christmas is approaching quite fast and summer is about to leave I decided to do some fruit in rum for the winter time. Seems to be a freebooter year...

What´s it about? At various stages in summertime you take different fruits (cherries, plums, mirabelle, oranges, pears,….) at the top of there ripeness, mix them with sugar, add alcohol (rum) and spices (cinnamon, vanilla, anise,...) and store the mixture in a pot and let it incubate to develop some nice flavors. Sounds easy and indeed it is.

Back in the saddle and Freebooters Fate Tournament preparation


long time, no hear... but this has to change! Now! There was a lot of activity on my hobby desk during the last couple of weeks but unfortunately non of this can be showed here (at least at the moment). Hope that I can change this in the not so distant future. Some of it has to do with the appearance of this site. I´m slowly but constantly working on some design elements. It is a tedious work but in the end I think it is worth the effort.

Nonetheless it is time to go on with some content on this blog. I´m still working on the painting series/articles about how to paint the freebooter mercenaries box (see previous parts here: 1, 2, 3) but part 4 still needs some time to get finished. I somehow underestimated the time needed for finishing such an article... but I´m on it. In the meanwhile I decided to take part in the first official Freebooters Fate Tournament taking place in mid november and a one day Freebooter Tournament at the end of october. But there is one little problem....
