Emprah be praised! Around 1am last night the warp storms cleared just long enough for the geniuses in Nottingham to get us a message bearing miraculous news. A new edition of Warhammer 40,000 is coming. An edition said to be the best edition of the game yet. One with not one, nor two, but THREE different ways to play the game. Plus the rules are free. True, there was no mention of the current price disparity in this corner of the world, but we're sure they'll address that soon.
On the back of this news, it has been decided that henceforth T.C.O.W. shall be renamed That 40k Club Out West (T.40k.C.O.W.). No other games will be played. It's all 40k, all the time now. This rule will kick in just as soon as somebody spends NZ$83 on the new 200 page Shadow War: Armageddon rulebook. So, yeah, not any time soon.
Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled club meeting update.
It was a bit of a quiet one this week. We're in the middle of the school holidays and I guess most were making the most of decent weather. I'm sure camping is fun and all, but they missed out on some great gaming.
We had a great selection of gaming going on. X-Wing, Malifaux, Test of Honour, and Kings of War. Ogres fought Undead, the Neverborn fought Gremlins, some X-Wings and a stolen TIE Fighter took on the Empire, and two groups of Samurai and their attendant Ashigaru had a big ol' scrap somewhere in Japan.
As I spent most of my time playing Test of Honour wishing my dice would roll better, I didn't actually get any photos or have a good look at what else was going on, but everyone appeared to be having a good time.
Oh, and I managed to be just sneaky enough to pull out a win in Test of Honour. Turns out all you need to take down a Samurai Hero is a sacrificial Samurai and enough arrows.
That's all for this week. We hope to see you at the club on 7 May. We'll see then if we're any closer to renaming the club.
