Tournament: Choose Your Own Adventure

Posted on November 28th, 2015 under . Posted by

As we are all painfully aware, GW does not support competitive play with any kind of sanctioned tournament system. And all too often, the attempts of amateur tournament organisers to ‘improve’ 40k with their own custom missions results in player confusion at best, and broken events at worst.

In this post, we’ll examine what we really want to achieve with tournament missions, and propose an alternative mission set for competitive play.

It’s always difficult to write concerning big, premier tournaments. If you have been reading this blog, you might have noticed I’m not a tournament player. Far from it, and it makes it that more difficult to give your own opinion about lists that have been used. But, never the less, there are some pretty good…

Posted on November 8th, 2015 under . Posted by

The 2nd Annual Baltimore Brawl has come and gone, and much like the delicious catered BBQ lunch I couldn’t get enough. Well, actually, I didn’t get any BBQ, but I assume that’s just ’cause it was so delicious. And so, too, was the 40-man tournament a blast! A gallery of all the pictures I took … Continue reading Baltimore Brawl 2015 Photo Dump and AAR

Infinity in the Jungle

Posted on October 25th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Somewhere along the way the default tabletop setting for a game of Infinity became “futuristic urban/quasi-urban environment”, which is as true of most of our tables locally as it is anywhere else, but the game does have a full and interesting set of terrain rules and even tries to include things like zero-g, hazardous environments, … Continue reading Infinity in the Jungle

Going Quiet But Don’t Forget the Fundraiser and Tournament!

Posted on September 7th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Hi all,
I will be going quiet on here, Facebook and the Wayland Blog for the next couple of weeks due to a ton of work that I need to catch up on. I should be back to normal by the end of the month though.

But while I’m gone, don’t forget about out Little Heroes Charity Fundraiser for the Down Syndrome Association.
Lots of model entries and lots of prizes have come in already so check out the main post and take part to help out! Deadline for minis to be in is Oct 21st.

There is also the Batman Day Tournament in a couple of weeks with lots of goodies on offer.
Knight models posted this about it a couple of days ago.

Like many of you already know, on September 26th, DC comics and Knight Models want to celebrate the Bat-Day with a special worldwide event with five differents tournamets located in Canada, Spain, U.K. and U.S.A.

These tournaments will have different activities like cosplay contest, draws for all the participants, painting course, and much more! 

DC comics and Knight Models have donated more than $1200 in prizes for each tournament, such prizes will be:

On the part of DC comics, the prizes will consist of different comics based on DC universe and Knight Models will donate rulebooks, miniatures and terrain for the Batman Miniature Game.

Today we would like to introduce the events for the U.K. and Canada and their organizers.

U.K. event:

Bearing in mind that the day of the tournament it’s the same day as Bat-Day, there can be no better place to the host the UK leg of the tournament than Wayne Manor, home of Bruce Wayne and Batman In the Christopher Nolan movie: The Dark Knight Rises. Animosity Wargaming events bring you to Wayne Manor to take part in the Batday- tournament.

The link below will take you to the online event pack which has all of the information you require for the tournament.

Will you be taking part in either event?

UK Batman Tournament Prizes and New Ruling

Posted on September 2nd, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

More goodies have arrived for the UK Batman Day Tournament. Lots of Batman minis and some Joker Rulebooks from Knight Models.

Plus the TWO Arkham Asylums shown the other day, loads of Batman themed goodies and more to come from DC.

£12.50 to take part, You could win 2 – 25 times that worth of stuff!

Knight have also made a ruling on using third party items and for model conversions.

Good morning guys
We have made a decision about the proxies issue. We value the creativity of our community so we will allow conversions over Knight Models miniatures (the conversion has to be approximately 50% our models), markers, sewers, lampposts and objective markers handmade are also allowed.
Forbidden is any stuff from an unlicensed brand, so the markers, sewers, lamppost and objective markers of another brand are not allowed in a Knight Models official tournament. If any player attends an official Knight Models tournament with illegal proxies from another company, they will be disqualified from the tournament. Thank you very much!”

This isn’t intended to stop people being create, just stop the 3rd party unlicensed products that are sold as ‘made for BMG’ being used at an even backed by DC.
Homemade or kitbash? Fine!
Coloured counters or drawn on bases? Not a problem!
Sets of Lamps or Counters sold but other companies for the game as cheaper alternatives? Nope!
If KM get in trouble for allowing ‘rip-off’ type products, we could ALL lose out on a great game.

Army List: Astra Militarum 1500 pts Semi-Competitive

Posted on August 27th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Wow, it’s been a while between posts! But a change of career, moving house, and the general lull in 40k-related internet activity of the last couple of months will do that. While I haven’t had time to post recently, I’ve still managed to sneak in a few small games with my Astra Militarum, and I’ve signed up for a local store tournament this weekend. It’s a 1500 pts event running modified Maelstrom missions, that is thankfully free of arbitrary list restrictions but comes with an expectation of moderate armies—I respect this expectation, so I’ve put together what I think is a suitably ‘semi-competitive’ Astra list.
