As is always the way, life tends to get in the way of the hobbies and the blogs that we write about them.

So, a few things happening this weekend by the looks of the murmurings on FaceBook is that this weekend is going to be a Malifaux weekend, which sounds like a heap of fun!

Malifaux is a Victorian steampunk gothic horror skirmish game. Its 28mm in scale and relatively easy to get into...just pick up a crew and a deck of cards and you're good to long as you have a set of rules and know how to play. The random card cheating mechanic makes this a bit different from your normal dice rolling mechanic, so if you're interested in something a little different, its worth a look! The models are damned cool as well!

Also, a couple of us are attending Snapshot on the Shore (affectionately known as SteveCon). Its a 1600 Late War Flames of War tournament and is looking to be a heap of fun. We'll have a full report on that on soon.

Christmas time is rolling around as well, so if you're looking to get yourself a hobby related present, dont forget that we get a bit of a kick-back from Mighty Ape. Just use the link below...

Sunday is Coming.....

It's been a fortnight since the last meeting of the TCOW'ers. So, what have we got on the schedule for this weekend, I hear you ask?!

From the talk I've been hearing (words I've been reading?) there is definitely going to be some Big Cats stalking around...of the 15mm variety of course!

If you're interested in seeing how Warmahordes works, I have it on good authority that we've got a couple of bunnies lined up for some teaching. March is quickly approaching so people are going to be wanting practice...

So, shall we play a game....

Club Meeting - 2nd November

It seems like an AGE since we had a club meeting and that would be because it's been a month. With people on FlamesCon duty a fortnight ago, no-one was able to run the show.

So, a heap of talk on the Facebook page about what games were going to be played and it seemed like we were in for a full house. Were we ever! 6 tables set up for varying games and about 16 nerdy/beardy types involved in all kinds of shenanigans! 

I'm not sure on what Gav is asking Mike with that finger?

The count of games over the course of the afternoon was:
3 x Flames of War 
2 x Warmahordes
1 x Kings of War
1 x Infinity
1 x Dropzone Commander
1 x SAGA

I managed to get a few shots through-out the afternoon of a few of the games and have posted these for your viewing pleasure!

The last game of the afternoon drew a bit of a crowd as Jonathan and I grabbed Mike's Viking and Norman SAGA forces and Mike walked us through an intro game. I have a Saxon army on the way and I believe that Jonathan is considering getting one as well. The rules are pretty simple to learn with only a few basic concepts needed to start playing.

I was a bit daunted by the Norman cavalry heading toward me a twice the speed I was moving but there was one thing they didn't count on..... BERSERKERS!!!!! Once they'd all but decimated the Warlord's Hearthguard all that was left was my Hirdmen to stroll in and get enough kills to send him to Norman Valhalla...where ever that is....

Great game! I'm really looking forward to getting some models and starting to paint them up.

So, that was another club meeting done and dusted (although, we didn't actually play any DUST). 2 more weeks until the next! 

Warmahordes in action!
Kings of War - Men vs. Abyssals
Dropzone Commander
Otto and the Tigers. 
US Armour (Armor for the Yanks) and German Grens.
