Labour Weekend Toys!

It's been a while since we put a blog post up but rest assured, despite Dan's exile to the Deeeeeeeep Sooooooouth, TCOW is still here and still hitting them tables hard with as many systems as we can.

Now, even though this weekend was Armageddon weekend, we still managed to get 4 different systems being played.



Monkey and I thought it was time we got some Armada action back on the table. I regretted this decision almost immediately...


We also had WWII action in the form of both Flames of War and Bolt Action, Russian on German in both.






And finally, 40K is still a club stalwart which is great to see. Jorin and Glen battling with Necrons and Drew Carey.











Rumour has it we'll be breaking out some Team Yankee at next club, so keep an eye out for that one!

Racers... Start Your Engines!


"It's sure been a thrilling season of Gaslands Quade, but this is what it's all come down to. The final Deathraces fought across separate zones to decide out winner and who walks away with the Pissed-On Cup and potentially their freedom as well. Those super-flashy cars sponsored by Yuri Miyazaki have been the ones to chase but lurking on the fringes, Team Slime has been racking up the wins. The Warden has been blowing up crims left and right which sure gets the crowds amped up, but have they got enough grenades in the glovebox for this one...."

"Let's head down to the arenas at watch the thrilling conclusion to Gaslands, Season 1!"



And so, with 80 cans each, the racers (and a ring-in) from this season of Gaslands at TCOW made ready to do battle. With that many cans and that many players, we needed to have 2 arenas or we'd still be there.

The monster trucks on Arena 2 would certainly play a massive part in what would occur and from what we saw between them and a nitro-laden buggy, carnage ensued from the start line...




So much carnage....

Arena 1 wasn't without its own spectacle though, again, monster truck and grenade-filled buggy doing the damage...



And from there, the racing really started.... the stunt-driving shenanigans of the Miyazaki crews meant that they had targets painted on the from the get-go and needed all their skill (and some jammy fucking die rolls) to get ahead.


Rainbow Dash speeds ahead...


While Blue lays down glue to shake off pursuit.

I'll add a few more action shots now...




This was the crowd-favourite moment where the pick-up, through an amazing feat of driving (actually, more luck than anything) managed a swerve to thread the needle between the container and the gate. Unbelievable!!!


Before the Monster Trucks arrived...




Na na na na na na na na......GASLANDS!!!!





The pick-up attempting to cut off the lead Miyazaki car.





And then, the power-slide across the finish...

But, there can only be one winner for Gaslands, Season 1 at TCOW...


Molly and Team Anarchy take the win!

Zombie Drivers....


Things are getting pretty tense in the Gaslands arena as the battle for the GCOW Trophy heats up! The dead are starting to rise from the grave to be a part of the action...which suits us just fine, we'll collect them as our own trophies to determine a winner...


Some amazing interactions in today's match with a heap of chained crashes leading to explosions leading to cars being taken out. And a heap of convicts meeting their maker which makes the Warden happy...










A massive zombie count at the end of the match with Molly taking the spoils today. Blondini and his crew walking away with 14 corpses for their troubles.


Dave and Glen also cranked some 40k out in anticipation of Warmonkey next weekend.





Unfortunately not even the presence of the Custodes could protect the Fists today...
