So, May……

Posted: May 8, 2018 in Uncategorized

Well at least this year I didn’t put anything about blogging more in my annual goals!

Looking back at the first third of my gaming year its safe to say that I am no longer a real magpie gamer. While I did play at Full Scale Assault the season opener for the Epic Aramageddon tournament season, the only game I’ve played since is Hordes, and I’m really enjoying that.

Not only have I been playing Hordes but with the help of the local MK players I’ve also been running a bi-monthly WM/H tournament at Wargames Workshop Milton Keynes. They’ve all sold at least 14 of the 16 tickets available, and have run at 14 players after the first one. Its been fun to see people travel a fair way to play, and has been a great learning opportunity for the local players, and me into running an event.

List and painting progress have been focused on the Welsh for a little time, but as is my norm I’ve procrastinated away a lot of time so I need to get thirteen models painted in just under ten days to be fully painted. I do want to hit that target to better get on to it.

More updates to come with details on the final run to the Welsh, then updates of how the games went.

Jan review

Posted: February 4, 2018 in Uncategorized

Jan has been and gone already, where does the time go?

Game wise I’ve pretty much become a mono-gamer. I’ve played a fair amount of Warmachine, and got another game in of Company of Iron. Still enjoying both.

I ran, with the aid of the local MK gaming group, a sixteen man steamroller event in the middle of Jan. I wasn’t expecting to play but with one no show I had to step into the breach and play and TO at the same time. This went pretty smoothly as I’d decided to use the Tiebreak system, which made entering scores and generating rounds. All in all a really neat little tool.

I went 1-3 in games on the day, but I only packed one Absy 2 list so hardly surprised by that. All that attended seem to have enjoyed the day with no real complaints about the setup or timing.

Bonescon is rapidly appearing on the horizon. As ever I like to paint some new stuff to take along. This year I’m looking at 10 models to finish in two weeks. Should be ok. For the first time this won’t include a new caster, unless I change plans and get one or both Vayl’s painted in addition to the stuff above.

The first steamroller went so well we are going to do it all again. 4th March is the next event, 14 spaces left as I write this, available via tiebreak –¬†https://www.tiebreak.co.uk/mk-steamroller_mar18/feed

Steamroller ahead

Posted: January 15, 2018 in Uncategorized

With the support of the local WM/H players I’m going to be running a 16 man steamroller event on Sunday.

I’m looking forward to it, we have managed to draw in both a good number of locals and some of the ‘names’ from the wider UK community. So there will be plenty of play to watch on the day as I’m not planning on playing.

But I am back building models. The current CID cycle by PP is all about Legion Ogryns, some of my fav models in the game. Played two test games so far and I like the changes I’ve tested.

I’ve even stuck models together, another unit of both warspears and warmongers, along with both Vayls and Crealix. Crealix is a great looking model, looking forward to getting him to the table, less enthusiastic about getting the archer unit that will make him shine done though.
