Angryman here!! Its been a while since anything has been posted on the blog (I've been trying to write this for 2 weeks now). There have been many reasons, Col Straken and his wife have had a baby boy, Suicide Badger has been working none stop and his wife is expecting, I've been crazy busy at work and had real life interfere and Taffah has been mad busy with work. All that said let me bring you upto speed with whats been happening in our little corner of the wargaming universe that is MAWS.
The new year started with a desicion to play more specialist games,
All of these games have had a revival at the club. Ive changed from my Chaos BFG fleet and run out my Imperial one, Col Straken has been using his Space Marine fleet and left his Eldar one in drydock and Taffah has started using a Space Wolf fleet. The gaming has been going well, Warp core explosions rock!!!!!
Col Straken and Suicide Badger have played some Blood Bowl recently, we are thinging of getting a league going soon.
We will be running a Necromunda campaign after the clubs AGM in April, it gives us time to remember the rules, paint up gangs and get used to playing again.
I've painted some more of Salamanders, I know have another Ironclad and a venerable dreadnought to add to the sons of Nocturne.
4 of us attended a 1 day tournament held by the Northern Warlords.
I used my Tyranids
Mike used Dark Eldar
Taffah took Imperial guard
Paul took imperial guard
Here is a link to the rules pack
My first game was against a space wolf list
My second game was against a Blood Angels army
My third game was against an Ork army
At the end of the tournament we counted what armies there were and it turns out that out of 24 armies, 6 of them were Blood Angels, 3 were Imperial Guard, 3 were Grey Knights. Unfortunately I think the Tournament scene is now dominated by netlists of the same 3 or 4 armies. I think that spoils the tournament scene as there is less variety of builds to play against.
Taffah was nonimated for best painted and won and Paul got a nice bag of sweets for finishing last.
The results are here
1st- Andy Oakham - Necrons
2nd- Ben Evans - Chaos
3rd- Harry Allen - Dark Eldar
