Hey guys, so I’ve spent my weekend sorting out and repainting some of the terrain we use at the club to give it a more eye catching look.
Below are some pictures of the finished pieces with some Marine models to represent the terrain. Hope you all like.
I still have some pieces to finish and all should be done for use on Friday. If you guys have some small pieces of terrain that you may be willing to donate to the club or just want it painted in the same style just let me know as it gives me some more uses for my airbrush.
Well we had quite the night on Friday at 2D6 Lodge Club Night, with most of the large tables being used for some exciting action going on.
The first table was a mighty battle of Malifaux between the Outcast crew led by Victoria of Ashes against the Arcanists crew, led by Rasputina.
What seems like a obvious advantage for the Arcanists having an Ice Golem and another large monster on their side soon changes with the Outcasts speedy ladies who race up the field and make the first kill.
Towards the end the Arcanists gained the upper hand leaving the Outcasts with only four member remaining but that doesn’t stop the girls taking down the ice golem before calling the game.
Next we come across a small battle between military forces in an intro game of Bolt Action – the fastest growing game currently at our club!
Now we come across a titanic war between robotic forces in a game of Battletech. Andy’s Light Lance of Succession Wars BattleMechs struggled against the three bigger beige-coloured Outer Rim Mercenary BattleMechs. Particularly, the poor, over-armed Wolfhound struggled with its heat and was shredded by the much larger mercenary Exterminator after only a small amount of resistance.
We travel into the far flung future of the 41st millenium now and witness a grand war between the almighty but evil forces of Chaos vs. a mixed collection of Space Marines, Imperial Guardsmen and Necron forces.
The gigantic Imperial Knight quickly catches and utterly obliterates the Chaos Land Raider but the Marines inside have already been able to disembark just in time to launch their attack against the loyalist Marines.
With the Knight on the rampage in the Chaos lines it all looks lost but Chaos is eternal. GLORY TO CHAOS!!!
[Editor: Harry does have some Chaos biases that should be pointed out to readers here 😉 ]
Finally we head back thousands of years to WWII and a skirmish between the forces of Canada and India in a game of Bolt Action.
Well I’d call that an amazing night of gaming!!! Hoping for another great one next week when I will be running intro games of the new release from Spartan Games, Halo: Fleet Battle.
A selection of the games played at 2d6 Lodge club on the evening of Friday 4th July 2014.
We’re always happy to show people how to play games as well as just talk about what we like about them. This week, our resident Chaos Acolyte ran through the rules of Warhammer 40,000 with a new starter to the game – but it wasn’t the only game we played at the club this Friday. Warhammer, Necromunda and X-Wing games were all being played as well!
If you’re in the Cambridge area and like playing games like these, come and join us! Find out how to do so on our contact page.
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!

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.
