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?

Back soon,

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.

Batman Worldwide Tournament – UK Prizes

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

Today we have some news on the prizes for the Batman Worldwide Tournament.
The UK event will be held at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham which you may recognize as WAYNE MANOR from the Dark Knight movies.

While there is still a boxes of official goodies to come in from Knight Models and DC Comics, all this is in hand…..

Two, yes TWO, Arkham Asylums! This will be for the overall winner and the best Cosplay.

All of these other goodies are up for grabs as well. KR cases, canvases and assorted Batman bits.
As I said, there is still stuff to come in from KM and DC so expect to see lots of models and comics as well.
I’m sure ToaTS can sort out some minis as well ;)

With a month to go, there are now only 30 places left for this event.
If you want to take parts, tickets are £12.50 and payable via Paypal to [email protected]

Will you be playing Batman at Batman’s house on Batman day to win some Batman stuff?

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.

ETC in Prague

Posted on August 10th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Last week ended for me quite surprisingly with watching the livestream of the European Team Championship event in Prague. The event consists of 3 team tournaments in Flames of War, Warhammer 40K and most likely the last time this year Warhammer Fantasy Battles. It is paired with the ESC (the Singleplayer Championship) which I didn’t follow.
“Bastion” or “Saper” had a really big bulk of equipment in Prague and made an awesome coverage of the event on Twitch. At the moment it looks like he is uploading the matches and stuff on his Youtube channel, so if you are interested please pay him a visit.

I was quite fascinated because I already lost interest in the GW games but the presentation of the event and the nice mixture in the reporting kept me looking and returning to the stream.

The Flames of War table which was shown was absolutely fantastic and looked more like a diorama than a gaming table. It is only shown partially on the picture stream of the events Facebook page but you can guess how the whole thing looked like:

Flames of War

The stream itself is full of random geekiness and tournament impressions so it is worth a look.

This year Germany dominated in Warhammer 40K and achieved a new points record and  took home the first place. Also in Warhammer Fantasy Battles the team placed first (after some unbelievable close final matches) and in Flames of War they achieved a respectable 9th place. Congrats to all of the players and also kudos for playing in those rough conditions. It was extremely loud and roughly 40°C without working AC.

For the next year there is already a discussion taking place what game they will take instead of WHFB. Kings of War is handled here as follow up, which would be quite cool.

Hope you enjoyed and have a good start into your week!

So long

Clash of Cultures: Tournament Play

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

by “Dirty” Jon Baber


I really like to participate in Flames of War tournaments.  Making lists, predicting – often incorrectly – what the current meta-game lists are, thinking up mission strategies – all of these things are really fun for me.  In talking with other tournament participants over the years, I have heard a ton of thoughts on tournaments.  In my mind, I have broadly divided the admittedly nuanced thoughts and approaches into Serious and Casual tournament participants.

So, what do I mean by these VERY broad categories?  When I talk about Serious tournament players, I mean the people who are trying to win it.  In addition, I mean people who will find their ranking in the tournament important – perhaps they are trying to finish in the top 10 or top third or improve their standing from the last tournament.  These people have usually spent some significant time thinking through their lists and tailoring them for the particular tournament.  Perhaps they have painted up some new units or tweaked an existing list or gone through some specific changes and plans for the missions to be played.  In any case, the Serious tournament player has invested significant time into tournament prep and is keenly interested in the outcome.
