X-Wing: My first tournament

star_wars_xwing_raw

A little while back I mentioned that I never meant X-Wing to ever become anything more than a little, occasional, fun time waster… well I entered (and ran) my first X-Wing tournament last week, down at Harlequins Blackpool. We have a group that meets down there every Saturday, 1:30PM till whenever we get chucked out (usually 7 ish), we’re not uber WAAC gamers, we’re just there to have fun. A little while back, when Tom (the charming, witty and dashingly handsome owner of Harlequins) asked me if I’d be interested in running a GNK for X-Wing in a few weeks time I was a but trepidatious, but foolishly I said yes. Fool…fool…

40k Campaign Creator

classifiedstampcutout

Upon digging around in my external hard drive, I found this from AGES ago. Back in 5th or even 4th edition…Before Planetstrike, before Spearhead. Before the planetary empires box came out and made mapmaking easy, I tried to make a campaign creator thing. I’ve copied it here verbatim, so will need a tad of updating to run it now. If anyone gets anything useful out of this, I’ll be happy. So, without further ado:

Warhammer 40K:

Planetary Assault.

Fighting Campaigns in the 41st Millennia. Continue reading “40k Campaign Creator”

Star Wars X-wing Miniatures Game. An occasional gamer’s thoughts

Oh X-wing. You were meant to be a cheap game to keep kibby and I amused on occasion, but damn. The plastic crack has hit again, and hard.

Space Marine Scout Cosplay Part 2: Electric Boogaloo

Well, that was close. I was this close to being Jayne again. After working on it for two weeks straight, and all I had to show for it was this.

So it looks the business, mostly. Aside from my luminous codpiece, but if you’re looking at that, my luck’s in, right?

The All Guardsmen Party continues!

If you’ve not had chance to read the All Guardsmen Party yet, you need to stop your life for an evening and read it. Really. It’s an account of perhaps the best Dark Heresy campaign… in the world.

The author, known only as Shoggy, has had a shite year all told and is finally getting around to writing up the latest adventure.He will be posting on /tg/ on Friday the 28th July, at 6pm Mountain Time (1am Saturday GMT).

I’ve been waiting for this as much as waiting for The Winds of Winter.

PEACE

First foray into Shadow War: Armageddon

Recently I was invited to play a campaign in a day of Shadow War: Armageddon. Having only had a few games of it beforehand, I was a bit trepidatious; but I donned my finest Inquisitorial Hat™ and jumped in all the same.
You may remember, dear reader, these from a long time ago.

No one expects them

Space Marine Scout Cosplay Part 1: Things what I bought.

I wish to start dear reader, by reminding you that I am an idiot. I know this, you know this; but now we both know that we both know this. If what I’m about to talk about sounds like you think its beyond me, it is. But that kind of reasoning hasn’t stopped me before, so why should I let it get in the way now?

Violente et ignorantiae, is the family motto, after all.

I mentioned before that I’m wanting, and indeed trying (trying being the operative word) to make a cosplay of a space marine scout.
