OK, Just like most previous year, I had the privilege of getting my lucky self across the channel to meet up with some very good friends for BOYL !It has become a sort of milestone in my hobby year, one I wouldn't miss.Just so you're prepared, this is going to be a long post with plenty of picture, so now you've been warned, let's just look at what we've had this year !Read Moar Skullz »

The Gnomes return! The Battlesmiths take on the Deep in another Volgelands game of Relicblade.
Somewhere in the Westfold, cattle are being slaughtered by an unknown horror. As the Rohirrim set out to investigate, they soon find that it is a Cave Troll that wanders their lands. They know they don`t have much hope to defeat it, when suddenly they see black clad warriors and their golden armoured allies appear on the horizon. A band of the Last Alliance is clearly on the hunt for the beast as well...After last weeks victory for my Rohan warriors, we decided to play a second, more special scenario: the one with the Cave Troll. In this scenario, not only do you have to kill the troll, you must see that your opponent doesn`t steal your hard work and snatch victory...As such, we fielded the same bands from last report, Noshi commanding the Last Alliance while I had the Rohirrim under my command...With the troll deployed in the centre, Noshi opted for the safe route and deployed against her edge. Knowing I had lousy missile power anyways, the brave men of Rohan went for the more agressi
Clarence is back for another game with his Starks, this time against my Night’s Watch!
The World Championships somehow managed to shift across Europe, moving from a shed in Birmingham into a 5-star hotel in glorious Rome this year.That of course means another overseas extravaganza for Team CLWC, and for yours truly another chance to try and craft something out of yet another of the Arab-flavoured armies I have been working through this year.The Khurasanians - basically a poor man's Abbasid - were the lucky chaps to make it out into the hot, hot Italian sunlight this time, where they took on 6 different enemies drawn from the US, Mexico, France, Spain and somewhere else using Mongols, Han Chinese, Carolingians, Alexandrians, French Ordonnance and the Seleukids.To track the games (and the food, and the swimming) there are many thousands of words spread across six fully illustrated, (unusually) map-annotated, kawasaki-riding battle reports in which Geordie General Al'Shearer lands yet again in the commentary position.Guarantee yourself a Big Night Oot and read away (the lads)..
It’s the final battle in our WARCRY Week! The Untamed Beasts and Iron Golems clash one more time in our first six-game series of this newest Skirmish game by Games Workshop. Defend the Find!

It's the national holiday, and as Noshi is out on a birthday picnick, I enlisted to play my first ever Lord the Rings tournament ever.While I played the system since it came out in 2001, organised events where rare back then as the sytem then would have you take along both a Good and an Evil army.Then I learned about the Flemish Hobbit League last year, and now finally had the chance to join in the fun.Now, for this first step into the waters, it also happened to be a special event of sorts, in that you didn't have to bring an army. Instead, you would be assigned one at random, provided by the organisers, and you have to play the event with that force.The tournament clocked out at 17 participants, with the TO jumping in to fill the 18th spot, so that's a nice turn-out.I got assigned the forces of Lothlorien, so time to look at what I actually have at my disposal:Two warbands, the smaller one led by Haldir consisted of 7 Wood Elf Archers, and a large one led by Celeborn and consisting of 4 swordsmen and
It’s Convergence time! The Untamed Beasts hit their first Convergence in their Quest and must play The Hunters, Hunted!
So at the end of may I attended the first GT pu on by an amazing local groupCOASTAL WARGAMINGThese guys really know how to get events going. Terrain was great (this is most important to note as there have been several GTs missing the mark on this lately). Missions were fun! Event was a blast. All good people and good times. No bad games or bad feelings that I experienced.Unfortunately, this was back in MAY (really before Caladius were SUPER EXPLODING. But if you look back at my unit reviews, I had said this was the unit to use and the Telemon was fading) so I forget most of the details to write up a more extensive Batrep. I do know I discussed in in Hobby Progress on last month's episode of our Allies of Inconvenience Podcast, so check that out if you want to hear more.First off my Army. I played Custodes for the event and took home Second for Painting (lost to a Wobbly Modeler using their board from Adepticon, which is an impressive thing if you've never seen it).My list was as followsCustodes Battalion- 197
Once an alliance existed between the realms of Elf and Man, and on occasion those ancient bonds are honoured. On one such occasion, a band of noble Elves of Rivendell and the last of the line of Numenor, blood that has all been spend, marched to battle once more to drive of a band of more uncivilised, even barbarian looking, men that where settling on the green meadows to graze their flocks of horses... but one night as they made camp, the Rohirrim struck!It's been a while since I took the field against Noshi, but as I had a tournament coming up on sunday, it was time for a uick fresh up of the basic rules.That full tournament report and how I fared will be posted tomorrow by the way...Noshi departed (slightly) from her Rivendell elves, as I still haven't obtained the required (metal) High Elf spearmen, and instead now fielded a force of Last Alliance troops. A band I recently completed for the collection. While this means she doesn't have two spear supporting troops, she also now has not on
