Hey guys, so I am in the middle of several projects at this time but I wanted to show you a couple that I am doing specifically for the club.
First we have some Age of Sigmar models getting prepared for the school club that runs before ours on Friday afternoons.
First I’m going to start with the Chaos forces as I am a known worshiper of the Chaos Gods. These are lovely models and am looking forward to getting these guys on my painting table.
Next we have something special that I’m not sure people have had a chance to play. A while ago we were lucky enough to receive a couple of starter kits from Mantic games for the Mars Attacks! tabletop game and they have been in the school cupboard for a while but I thought I would bring them home and get them painted up in case anyone wanted to give it a go. In the starter kits we got several playmats and loads of terrain pieces. I have put together a couple of playmats of my own from some cork boards which are the same size as the ones that we were given. This is one of the mats I have in progress with some of the models we have.
This is going to be a fun little project and I will be posting some more photos of it over the next few weeks.
Alright guys! So we had another amazing night of gaming last night with loads of different games going on at the same time. As usual many photos to follow. Please enjoy.
First off we were lucky enough to have an introduction to Dropzone Commander for anyone who fancied it. Thanks to @James_Alex_B from @HawkWargames for coming down and showing this off as well as being kind enough to donate a rulebook plus plenty of the terrain used in the game for anyone who wants to play in the future.
Before everything kicked off of the night we had a tense game of Guildball between @NationofLee Fisherman and Luke’s Morticians, as is usually the case Shark is able to make it to the goal and score without much hassle.
For the first time we got some people playing Age of Sigmar at the club. It looks to me that the Tombkings force has their work cut out for them against those Sigmarites but they quickly get the upperhand when some fresh troops are resurrected to bring more pain.
Now we come to a very interesting game of Malifaux, a three-way battle. Seems like some Arcanists and Neverborn are having a bit of a scrap, at which time the Guild makes an ambush to bring these criminals to justice. Unfortunately, the Guild underestimated how many enemies they would be facing a take a nasty beating. They were able to make several arrests before retreating. Better to survive and fight another day.
Next we come to the intro table to the new game from @spartangames and 343 Industries Halo Fleet Battles. I was able to build and paint everything and read the rulebook in two days in preparation, and I was exhausted by the end of it but was happy to show it off to the club. Had some interest from a couple of players and hoping to show it off to others soon.
It seems like the Dropzone bug really bit last night as we had a full game going on at the back of the room. Seems like some big ships and even a gigantic walking tank are about to make a mess of each other.
Finally we had another epic battle from the world of Bolt Action. Something tells me that tank is going to make someone day really, really bad.
Some amazing games last night and great to see so many people again.
