This Sunday's meeting was the fourth Bludgefest, and it was another blockbuster. Before we get into what was on offer, however, there's one thing we should reiterate: There's still gaming to be had while Bludgefest is on. In fact, there was a good variety of gaming going on.
The GamingFour separate systems were played through the afternoon, as well as Magic and Zombicide. In no particular order...
|Plucky humans fight to survive against the undead hoardes.|
|The German army engages in a 'training mission'.|
|The gangers of House Orlock take on an insidious Genestealer Cult.|
|A USNC battle group prepare to battle...|
|...the forces of the Covenant in a demo game of HALO: Fleet Battles.|
The weather was warm and calm, so tables were set-up outside to hold the various items on offer. This seemed like a good idea at first, but after a couple of hours a few of us were starting to feel the heat. Fortunately, that didn't stop people from picking up some great deals.
Let's take a look at what was on offer...
|An eclectic mix of blister packs, boxes, and board games.|
|A full Dark Angels army, some Star Trek Attack Wing, and a "limited edition" copy of Space Hulk.|
|Plastic sprues, buildings, and tanks.|
|A partially-built Imperial Knight, a Flames of War starter, and some assorted GW books.|
|A selection of old RPG and wargaming books.|
|Boxes of 15mm and 28mm vehicles.|
|More tanks, as well as some terrain and historical rulesets.|
|Even more tanks, infantry, and some Dusty zombies.|
|A selection of 'dead' themed items, some Great War infantry and rule book, and even more tanks.|
|Finally, an epic collection of books and games - including THREE copies of Space Crusade and six editions of 40k rules!|
|Yes, Timmy. That's an intact copy of Rogue Trader.|
A special mention must be made for the organiser of Bludgefest IV, the Bludgelord himself!
|Bask in his magnificence. Bask in it.|
