Doubles tournament

This last Saturday was the sluggaz doubles tournament which was great fun and my first 40k tournament

A huge thank you to all my opponents you were all awesome and to the tourney organisers

I am not going to post names as there are a couple I cannot remember which is not surprising when you add 10 hours gaming to a bad cold.

Game 1 vs tau and dark angels straight objectives

This was a disaster of a game tactic wise the pods went exactly where we wanted but failed to do much upon arrival and the drone squad with suit commander was disgusting in firepower ways.
In the end we were pretty much tabled.

Game 2 Eldar/guard - big guns never tire

Tanks and a wraithknight scared us quite a bit but we managed to hold on to a couple of objectives and snag the win.

Game 3 sisters of battle/guard - six random objectives

This was an awesome game and probably my favourite of the tourney especially as everything seemed to go badly for us with the drop pod scattering off the table and ending up in our deployment zone. It all came down to holding objectives and we managed to hold some of the objectives and so did our opponents meaning a draw.

Game 4 eldar/dark eldar - purge the alien

This was probably the hardest fought and fun game wraithguard and grotesques ripped through our ranks and it was just one big melee by the end which we luckily won.
So first tournament and a hard fought 2 wins and a draw

Pics are from the first game before phone battery got low

The Future...

This weds is the first Wednesday game night of Sluggaz and I am really excited (Wednesdays being considerably more viable than Fridays)

I am looking at alternate games to play on these nights so far I have tried infinity last Friday and am trying Warmachine this Wednesday and in the future I am thinking of trying warzone again but depending on space it may be more simple to play Boardgames or RPG’s

So with Fridays and Wednesdays games I will be able to play

Warhammer 40K
Bolt Action

And for boardgames

I would like to look at Zombicide, Firefly and even Mansions of Madness and games similar to that


i have lots of other games we could play and also considering a Black Crusade game

Obligiatory 7th edition post

So next weekend 7th edition for 40K release and I don't know how I feel. on one hand I am excited for the new rules but I am also disappointed at how quickly the new edition has released.

but also exciting times going forward the local club has added a new night for events so alternate Wednesdays starting the 28th May which I hope will be an exciting experience of playing some new games.

there is also a huge interest in bolt action at the moment which I am happy to be involved in with work progressing on my Russians and my Italians on there way too.

I am working on rebuilding my copy of advanced heroquest so am currently building skaven and have empire militia to build.

I have the Necrons to build and just need to flock the wolf bases for the tournament.

Space wolves done and new project

So I have almost completed the project for the doubles tournament. I just need to complete the bases I am thinking tiled ruins.

So I am starting a new project based on these


I found a crest and cloak retailer online in Anvil industries so have ordered some 

I also have ordered a couple of Necrons to test the project on but will definitely be posting pics here.

I am also still working on Russians and have to build my Mishima.
