A Festivus for the rest of us...

Good morning dear reader,

Sadly this will be the final post from me this year as EWA has closed it's doors... for 2 weeks. Which means the Festivus season has arrived and we all have 2 weeks to get our miniatures assembled and / or painted, ready for the new year and the games that it'll bring in 2014.

Last Friday went off with a pop with a few games of everything were on the go, the first of which was a massive 5000 point 40k game between dudes and non-dudes:

got dice?

On a couple of the other tables were some skirmish games:


... and this one:

bringing the grey
 and the WHFB lads had a couple games of WHFB (in case you couldn't guess):

Ogres vs Orcs 'n Gobbo's:

and Tomb Kings vs Warriors of Chaos:

..which brings the first year of blog posts to a close. So, I'm going to take this opportunity to thank everyone who read this blog and / or comments. It certainly kept me going, seeing that page view count creep up and hearing the comments in person on a Friday after a post. Without YOU, the reader, I probably would have discontinued this blog, so thank you all for the interest :-)

To all the EWA members and readers I would like to wish you a Happy Festivus or Merry Christmas or whatever you're doing for the next 2 weeks. Please everyone, take care and make safe choices. I want to see everyone in one piece next year.

So until then reader, stay safe and have fun.

See you next year at the club,

The end is nigh

Hello viewers!

How's it? I'm good thanks, just gearing up for the end of year festive celebrations. Speaking of which, this coming Friday will be the last EWA meet for the year and is set to re-open it's doors in January. If i'm not mistaken, the club will be closed for 2 weeks.

It's not closed yet though so all the games are still being played. Look I'll prove it to you with pictures:

New to the club (as far as I know) were a group playing some Star Trek, which was good to see a different game on the tables..

40k was also on the tables where an interesting match up of Daemon vs Landcruisinators.
Shane brought along the newly released rules for Be'lakor and for giggles, a host of greater Daemons. In response Andrew brought along a land cruiser and terminator opposition...

Another game of Malifaux was being played...

... as well as a very entertaining game of WHFB where I got to test my Cancon Lizardmen list...

this is the result of 10 skinks shooting with blowpipes. Poison FTW!

Frustratingly for Shamps, this happened twice. His Grail knights held up by 1 skink which passed a break test... twice.

... and the Necromunda campaign was being continued:

That's it! Only one more post until the end of the year! Lets try and make the last meet for 2013 a big one.

As always feel free to leave comments or critiques, they're a great help to make this blog feel less dead :p

Other than that, see you Friday!

Images of EWA meets past

Good Friday one and all!

First up, I apologize for not posting last week but there wasn't much happening at the club and it would of been a very small post. So I decided to merge 2 weeks into one... wait a minute... why am I apologizing? The reason why I didn't post was because YOU weren't there (only 3 games were on that week)! 
Seeing as I'm a forgiving, generous, kind and humble person so I'll forgive you this time :p

So, with your excuses and apologies out of the way, lets get down to viewing some piccies eh? Good.

Mmmkay, first off we've a game of something I'm not too sure of (EDIT: I've since been told that this game is Urban War)

... some hot 40k action, Marines vs Space Elves:

.. and good ol' fashioned WHFB match up, Warriors of Chaos vs Lizardmen:

skinks everywhere!

it took near 5 turns for this Daemon Prince to knock downs this Skrox unit!

we also have a couple of games of Necromunda which is in season right now:

Game 1.

The Predator?

Game 2.

and an inaugural WHFB game for one of our members, Warriors of Chaos (Slaanesh flavoured) vs Dwarfs:

For something a little different in flavour, Malifaux:

Over on the right of the bus you'll see a game of Warhammer 40,000 in mid flight...

the Eldar sneak into the Chaos base while the vehicles were asleep.

... and over on the left of the bus you'll see a game of Warmachine in action:

A game of Triumph & Treachery was on the table last week, the first of what I assume will be many games of this very enjoyable WHFB expansion.
Bretonnians with Skaven mercenaries vs Dwarfs solo vs Lizardmen with Chaos mercenaries:

So that's what's been happening at the club these past 2 weeks.
In store tonight will be yet another game of WHFB where I'll test out my Cancon tournament list and Necromunda continues it's revival. What else is on? *shrugs* You'll have to pop down and see.

Until then dear dice throwers,
