Event Horizon #2

Posted on August 23rd, 2016 under , . Posted by

I’m back!Only fair that you might thought otherwise as I’ve hardly been overly active on here over the past couple of months. As I’ve mentioned recently X-Wing has found a natural dip for me since Yavin. Infact gaming as a whole has, for various reason…

Event Horizon # 1

Posted on August 22nd, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Hello people,I’ve got a week off work which is traditionally a time when I set a project and inflict it upon you as a form of personal motivation. This week is no different in respect that there’s a project, it is different in respect of the goals and …

Competition Time?

Posted on August 1st, 2016 under , . Posted by

Hello people,Once again it’s been a bit quiet on the gaming front. A bit of life getting in the way,as it does, but also a natural lull as I’ve taken a bit of a natural break from competitive gaming. It’s been somewhat necessary, with my Bolt Action Co…

Celebration Time!

Posted on July 20th, 2016 under . Posted by

So, by luck I ended up at Star Wars celebration last Sunday courtesy of Ian and his cousin who double booked a walking holiday in Sweden. Sorry cuz!

Rocking up early we even managed to walk into for the Ray Parks (Darth Maul) seminar. He’s an awesome guy with a real connection to the fans.

There was plenty of cool stuff to fill the rest of the day along with the many, many stands of t-shirts and tat. Unfortunately the tat I as looking for was out of stock and nothing else much jumped out at me.

There was however a fantastic Admiral Thrawn, I can’t wait for the new Timothy Zahn novel, an £800 deluxe Boba Fett suit, a TIE Bomber Shuttle and plenty of superb props and replicas. A bit of tactical planning kept queuing to a minimum. The Rogue One area was a particular highlight especially as Ive avoided all the trailers so far.
We did agree that if you were doing all three days that the seminars would be a must. We also missed a trick it some of the more economical celebrity signings. A Bossk card signed by Bossk would have been particularly AWESOME!!

All in all a really, really good day. So good I’m keen to rewatch the prequels!

Hello people,Yet another LIFE inspired hiatus but I am actually playing games. Last week saw a swarm of X-Wing match ups with a smattering of Netrunner culminating in a whole weekend of “I am your Father!” at Warboar and Lost Ark.Warboar were running a…

Hello people,So, completing the set Nigel dropped by last night for a game of Infinity, to kickstart us both back into the game. He’d recently picked up the Onyx Contact Force set and I just wanted to get back to it with some table time.As such I went …

Filthy, Filthy

Hello people,So once again real life has got in the way but last weekend that was all brushed aside as I spent both day playing Netrunner,aka Filthy Cards,  and thoroughly enjoying myself whilst I did it :)Saturday was Dark Sphere’s Regional with …

Never being Boring

Posted on June 15th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Hello people,So, after the qualified triumph of Yavin / Expo as a bit of variety I’ve been dabbling elsewhere, which is allowed under my self imposed gaming restrictions as I haven’t spent any money. Nor will I…..honest :)Nigel recently picked up War…

Battered, Bruised, Triumphant!

Posted on June 5th, 2016 under Posted by

Morning people,Far too late a finish yesterday to post. Apologies as I know you were all waiting with great expectation ;)Long story short I went 3-3 which is better than I expected but slightly dissapointing as I slipped from 3-1 with bad match ups in…

Expect the Unexpected

Posted on June 3rd, 2016 under Posted by

So, despite my apocalyptic predictions I actually had a pretty good day.Opening game of the day was triple Jumpmasters. Not so good. Settling down I got stuck in, leading with Oicunn. Despite forgetting Issard and my Ion Bomb I traded Oicunn for two of…

Sunny side up?

Posted on June 3rd, 2016 under Posted by

So, yesterday’s trip up was delayed a touch but no-one died so all good.The hotel is fine, I consumed a particularly good double burger and most importantly we picked up all of our event tickets and found the gaming hall. This year it’s been upgraded f…

Hello people.So its the eve of Birmingham eve i.e. a third Regional followed by the Yavin Open most likely followed by an afternoon of Hanger Bay.Currently I’m most looking forward Hanger Bay. Primarily this is because I’ve realised that Oicunn / Soont…

Playing the System

Posted on May 29th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

Hello people,It’s all been a bit overly X-Wing recently with an escalation league at the club and a third Regional and the Yavin Open up at Games Expo in Birmingham next weekend. Add in a bit of life and anything else has taken a definite back seat.As …
