Upcoming Event: Warhammer World

This weekend, the 40k players of MAWS will be enjoying the highlights of the City of Nottingham on Friday night, followed by Warhammer World gaming on the Saturday - all in aid of Marcus getting hitched.

Rules for gaming are as follows:
- Each player must bring a 2,000pt Army list and a 1,000pt Army List
- There will be a 2 v 1 game, alongside a 1 v 1 game each round.
- The 1,000pt Army list must be made entirely from components of the 2,000pt list, which includes upgrades, weapons etc.
- Loser buys the Winner(s?) a drink in Bugmans

Hopefully I'll get some pictures up on here on Sunday, although there's still pictures from our Planetstrike inaugral game and 8,000pt Apocalypse game to sift through and have a writeup done for!

Britcon 2009 Results

Long time no post in these parts, since we never really got rolling.

However, there's been a lot of activity at the club recently, running up to Britcon 2009 in Manchester, where 3 MAWS players participated in the 40k event.

Overall, it was another year on year improvement, with all members of MAWS finishing higher than previous years even with an increase of players taking part in the tournament.

The results are as follows:

1 - Richard Hogan
2 - Chris Green
Chaos Marines
2 - Robert Sims
4 - Stephen O'Neill (MAWS)

Rob even managed to finish 9th after missing out on his first game!

Next year we're looking to break into the Top 3, and with plenty of events in the meantime to get our tournament practice, it's looking promising.
