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
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
This weekend I attended the Strange Bedfellows Team Tournament in Saskatoon with The Kids and Other Tim. It was a long tiring day - made longer and more tiring by the fact that I was up stupid late trying to put last minute touches on Amanda's Drukhari that Finnegan was taking to the tournament and only got about an hour of sleep before getting up again to get ready to get out to the tournament. All that aside, though, it was a pretty damned good day...There were TEN teams participating, each with four players - each player bringing a force of 1000 points. Each round a team would be matched up against another team and they would then play two concurrent games, each with two members of one team facing off against two members of the other team.There were specific Detachments that we were required to use and I found them to be a little restrictive and difficult to put a force together for. Probably because it seemed to favour a style of play totally counter to my own. To me, it seemed to give preference to
More then 7 years have passed. More then 7 years the fields of battle lay quiet as the sound of tournament drums faded at the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp. In those years, the Old World became the World that was, and the Mortal Realms where born... but not in the 9th Age. Here, heroes of the past still wage war on the hordes of days gone by...And now a new generation has risen, and the sounds of war will once again clammer in our clubhouse!It has been years, but my gaming club, the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp, is returning to the tournament scene by organising Hammers and Swords 2019.An idea grown from our Fantasy players, my only involvement is the behind the scenes administration and liasion with the board, so all the cudos has to go to the 9th Age players.So on the 29th of september this year, we will be hosting our first wargames tournament in almost 7 years, and the name of the game will be The 9th Age, the fantasy successor to the last edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and totally community developped.I wi
Coming back to you with more Adepticon Coverage, this time the 40k Team Tourna,ment.As always this is overall a great event. You meet some awesome teams, and if you do it a few times, you start to meet the same teams ever (two of the 5 teams we played against this year were teams we had faced at a previous Adepticon).Now with our last minute change to EVERYTHING for the 40k team tournament, and one of our players as a result essentially being a 40k novice, we had a challenge ahead of us at the outset. However in the end we came in 47th out of 127 teams and had our best performance yet (overall and battlepoints). Placing above 63% of the competition IMO is excellent for bringing Blood Angels, Dark Angels and Grey Knights. Here are our lists.Some other impressive rankings for us:We were tied with 5 teams for 10th in appearance (which is nice since most of the models we had were just from our collection). Overall score considered, we would have been 18th in appearance.We got 8 Line breakers, in a tie for 3rd for

Coming back to you with more Adepticon Coverage, this time our last minute board and theme.The forthcoming podcast will talk more about it, but in short we had another large amazing theme planned for this Adepticon. Unfortunately one of our team mates had to bow out this year for a family emergency. In solidarity with him, we decided to put that on the back burner and in two weeks time pulled off this board and theme. It basically came about because Chris joked my Redemptor looks like he is Ice Skating. And since all good boards start with a joke, we went from there.So here is the finished productHow did we get to that? Well a whole ton of last minute work.I personally built 3 bikes, painted 6 bikes, an attack bike, and 11 intercessors, and painted the Realm of Battle Boards. Chris did TONS of construction on the boards, integrating all our motors, put together our draft pamphlet, and helped with bases, while Jason helped finish off bases and added all the snow once we were in the hotel. The whole thing was f

Sunday I was over at the Dragon's Den participating in Battleforce Recon. Last year the event was held at Mana Bar, but Mana Bar has since closed... So they held it at the Den...It was pretty crowed back there... and this is before the War Wars: X-Wing guys showed up!I think there were around 24 players....?After the first round there was a break for lunch and everyone put out their armies on display. Last year I was the only one that brought a display board - this year, a lot of others had them! So many great armies!This was one of my favourites: Chad Jordan's Death Guard!Chaos Space MarinesMore Chaos Space MarinesSTILL More Chaos Space MarinesSone of STILL More Chaos Space MarinesI think these were Tom's Khorne Daemon HordeThere was at least one more Chaos player - they fellow with the Death Guard I played in Round One. Some just didn't put their stuff out on display....SO maybe 7 chaos...? about a third of the forces...?Ultramarines! I think there was at least one other Ultramarines player - or maybe Crims

Past saturday, the 23th, I joined in my first tournament ever since the Battle of Small Armies for Warhammer in 2012.In a venue I have never gamed before, being the local Games Workshop store, the Warpstorm tournament was organised.So that gave me a chance to face three new opponents in all probability, some armies I might not have faced before, and see how rusty I am.The selection criteria for the tournament force where as followed:A 500pts army that follows the matched play and organised play rules. In addition you must bring a minimum of 1 patrol detachment that has a min requirement of 2 troops instead of 1 for this tournament. Armies also have to be painted and forgeworld is allowed.Following these rules, the force I fielded consisted of a Sorcerer, who was also my Warlord. He comes with his Force Stave and Bolt Pistol, drank the Elixer for +1 S and A, and has the Unholy Fortitude trait for a further 1 wound and ignore wounds on 6+...The Troop choices where 5 Noise Marines with a blastmaster and a
I finally added a new page today to the blog whoch I wanted to do for a while: results of tournaments and such in my wargaming life.Now, I'm afraid those from before my "5 year hiatus" have been lost in time, as they predate even my little blog page I'm afraid.So a lot of older events aren't readily available in an age when even the internet wasn't that much around, though I will be looking in my pictures and archives soon, and take pictures of some things hanging on my wall / standing in my cabinets of cups and certificates, and try to (partially) recreate my past as such.But the page can be accessed on the tabs at the top of the blog, check back in a few weeks to see how I managed to recreate stuff, though I'll probably put down a post later this week about what I found back in those cabinets... But for now, I could only add two events which I covered in the past on this corner of the internet, and start building onwards from that point on.
I thought I would share my journey of building out my 40K Tournament List. I have a tournament coming up soon at Sanctuary Gaming Centre! Yah! It’s this one. I’ve never been to this store before so I’m hoping it’s great! I only want to take painted stuff. Fully painted and completed models. I’m unsure if that’s a requirement yet, but I think it’s good to assume it is. Never miss an article? Subscribe! This somewhat limits me of course. But by doing this task now, I can plan and paint ready for the tournament. 40K Tournament List Restrictions So […] The post 40K Tournament List Build appeared first on Warhammer 40K Blog.
I covered the Organised Play box from the first season of Underworlds, and was able to get my hands on the new 2019 set that was released to support Nightvault. These sets are available to stores as event support sets, and the content should be used as prize support for instore events, like tournaments or […]
Okay, it's decided.After pondering on the idea for some time now, I have decided that in 2019 I will be returning to playing wargame tournaments.At first, I was tinkering with the idea of doing it in 40k, the game I've been playing the most at TSA the past 1.5 years. But reading and watching on Nova "horror stories", in which I mean the very heavy min / max'ing that this edition seems to cause, I decided against that in the end. The same goes for the fact I don't want to / are able to to invest a heap of time in studying every tactic and unit of every book like in the old days. My Emperor's Children would be a ping pong ball in an extreme bowling alley as a result.While attending Crisis this year however, I learned about the existance of the Flemish Hobbit League, and their tournaments. While I returned to MESBG anyways, and looked into the system that I loved ever since 2001 again, I made the decision. They run about 5 to 6 tournaments a year, and of those 1 is around the corner
