Every few months, when we have enough people to stage it, we have a night where we have a Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse game. Here is a small gallery of photos from the 2d6 Apocalypse game we had in December 2013.
Our apologies for it being such a small gallery this time! We rather concentrated on having fun rather than taking photos!
Every few months, when we have enough people to stage it, we have a night where we have a Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse game. Here is a gallery of photos from the 2d6 Apocalypse game we had in August 2013.
We’ll update this post when we remember who won! 🙂
We are currently in the middle of our first Warhammer 40,000 league tournament at 2d6 Lodge.
We’ve been a little bit blindsided by the new edition 7th Edition of Warhammer 40,000 being released, but we’ve decided to stick with it and see out the competition as a last hurrah to 6th Edition!
We’ve got four divisions, each with four players and we’re using 1750 point lists. We’re in the middle of playing the three other players in our divisions twice each and when we’re done, the top two coaches in each division will go into a knock-out tournament to determine the overall winner, who will also win a small prize!
We’re expecting to start another 40,000 League in the autumn, when we’ll be using the new 7th Edition rules and there may be a few format changes, as we look to improve the league experience for players.
We are currently in the middle of the second season of our Bloodbowl League at 2d6 Lodge.
Our reigning 2d6 Lodge Bloodbowl champion of Season 1, is Coach Dan with his Dark Elves, the Seal Teasers (No, me neither!) who are the only returning team to Season 2, with all of the other coaches electing to re-start new teams for the new season.
The league format we follow, set down by our league commissioner, Commissioner Steve, is that we face each other team in our division twice. There is no fixed order to the games, but all games must be completed by the end of the season. For Season 2, this is at the end of the day, Friday 27th June 2014. The top two teams from each division with then go into a knock-outcup competiton to determine the overall season winner!
We’re expecting to take a three month break over the summer before Season 3 starts, so plenty of time to get in touch, or get in some practice games with other coaches at 2d6 Lodge!
