Space Hulk - A time to leave.

The story so far.
Space Hulk CST6012 had drifted out of the warp much to the interest of the Imperium and alien  races.  Many a zombie has been dispatched, robot rebooted, teleporter used, enemy killed and exciting piece of technology salvaged. However, the hulk has now been caught in the gravity well of a nearby planet, and time has run out for our plucky explorers. It is time to leave.

If you can't beat them, buy them.

Tohaa are my bugbear in Infinity games. This alien faction is completely...............alien to me. So, a recent birthday allowed me to invest in a new faction and attempt to learn how to combat this most mysterious of enemies. For a starting point I bought the Tohaa Starter Pack, a box of Chaksa Auxiliaries, the Kaauri Sentinels blister, and for my HVT, the O-12 High Commissioner. I have yet to play them, but I was determined to build and paint them before hitting the battlefield with them.

Above: All the Models done. The bases were made using a Gamesworkshop Age of an Sigma basing box, Warlord Games Summer Grass and Army Painter Meadow Flowers.

Saturday afternoon is alright for fighting

Club nights too short? Simple run a Saturday afternoon club from 12 till 6. Eleven harden souls paid a few extra coins than the usual Friday night club entry fee to enjoy a range of the finest gaming available......oh....and we flicked some penguins around in a cardboard box. Just to clarify, the penguins were in the box, not us. (Before you go and report us to the RSPB, just Google the boardgame Ice Cool, produced by Brain Games).

Above: Ice Cool. Our first game. An ice-breaker if you will (no penguins were harmed in the taking of this picture).

Blood Bowl - False Start. Everyone but the Centre.*

Blood Bowl has made a very welcome return to our wargaming tables recently. I didn't play much on its first time round, but I did keep my Skaven team from back in the day, so I was ready and waiting to 'play ball'.

* Nothing to do with the content of the post, but just my favourite** referee's call in American Football.

Teaching N3 - Small Steps. Cautious Movement if you Will.

My crusade to bring Infinity to the masses continues. An open invitation to members of the club lead to my Infinity chum Nathan and myself hosting 6 Infinity newbies. I had brought along three tables worth of terrain (including my new Japanese layout) and a selection of figures for those who didn't have any of their own. Let the teaching beginning.

World of Wargaming Adventures - Support your Local Club*

A 40K Kill Team game, and planning the next Space Hulk multi-player event with Dave G, were  my entertainment at a recent club evening. Like most wargaming venues the members drive the clubs fortunes. For us, since Christmas, it has been a little quiet, but the Friday in question was a very pleasant change. 

*I appreciate may wish to insert an alternate word instead. Perhaps 'Store', 'Basement' or 'Garage'.

Above: Many an exciting thing going on.

Winter Invasion 2017 - Day Two

Day two of the Invasion Drop Zone Tournament, and my challenge, to win games four and five, and give me a winning record overall. Piece of cake. Again, as well as gaming, there were lots of chances to chat all things Zone. For instance, I met with Hawk Andrew who will become the companies North American representative in the near future. (All the very best with your exploits Andrew).
