I’ve been gaming at home for the last few weeks.
Boomer, PaulS and I have been playing a bit of Warmachine/Hordes. Boomer is just getting back into the game so we’ve been playing at 25 points to keep things simple, and relatively quick.
So far I’ve used Abys, Bethayne, Kallus and pLylth to mixed results. PaulS has been trying his hand with his cryx and Boomers been rocking Kromac. Fun times and over the coming months we will transition to 35 points with steamroller again, once everyone is up to speed.
Adding Enri into the mix the four of us are going to fun a small BB league, we all love the game but don’t really want it to dominate. Last night Boomer and I played the inaugural game, with my less than mighty Meat Pie Packers fling team going down 0-3 with 0-7 casualties, 3 of them RIP’s!
More to come from this I’m sure.

Yesterday say myself and Innskip finally return to some historical action when my Republican Romans faced off against his Celts.
It’s been around 6 months since we last played War and Conquest, and to be honest the first 4 turns were more of a blunder along, remembering things as we went along, and much rules look up. Still we found every question we hand answered (I think, though some took a while for the light bulb to go off) and the game played out quite nicely, with the Celts gaining the upper hand by the end of 6 turns mainly due to superior morale, strength in numbers I guess.
No photo’s as my Romans are as unpainted as they were 2 years ago when I bought them, but we have set a date for the next game so I’m going to try and get some paint on them so I can, at the very least, field one block of troops with spears and shields attached!
I’ve also been playing some hordes the last couple of Fridays, and this seems set to become a regular thing so maybe I’ll get further into my hordes unpainted pile one day.
23/24th is the Epic-UK GT. Initially I had a mad idea i’d paint a new army for this year, but that isn’t going to happen so I’ve submitted a nid list with the idea that maybe I can win enough games to take best nid player of the year, though it could be a hollow victory as I’m the only player to use them for 5 games so far!

Last night the chargers once again took to the field, Thegremster’s Lizardmen the opponents this time. The game went pretty much the Chargers way, resulting in a 3-1 win, though another hit to a catcher left Allen with a niggling injury.
Rumours are this will be the last round for division 3 of the league this season, so that could be that for the chargers in this incarnation.
If I’m honest I can’t say I really enjoyed the league aspect of BB this time round. It’s certainly nothing to do with the guys up in Daventry, every game I’ve played has been fun, even when I got the cack kicked out of me. For some reason I don’t think BB is the league progression game for me like it was 2 years ago.
I’ll still play BB, maybe at a tournament and certainly casually at home, but I think my gaming magpieism must be strong right now, and playing one game every 2 weeks for an extended period isn’t what I’m looking for.
So up next is some Hordes, then a bit of War and Conquest with some WWII on the horizon too… and the Epic-UK GT at the end of November, busy times ahead.
