Test of Honour boot camp – May 6th 2017

 Fourteen gamers from across the land arrived on a somewhat damp May morning at the Headquarters of Warlord Games in the heart of Nottingham to attend the first Warlord Test of Honour boot camp.

The area was a little cramped, but we all made the best of it during the day.

The reverse side shows ruined buildings, and hedges rather than stone walls. Then we have the Rulebook & Battle Guide – both of these are fine, although it may have been nice to have them printed on better quality paper, as they […]
