Gorka Morka. The Rioteers get mobile and hostile!

The idea was a simple one.

Hey Lano lets play Gorka Morka for Orctober.

Then the Warmachine Journey man league kicked in and sucked up all my hobby time (and any enjoyment I actually got from the game!).

But I have perservered and the Rioteers are now Mobile and Hostile.

Keelz on wheelz

"Nar Guv, we 'Borrowed' it

FOC you Lano!



Eat my sixes bitch!
Still lost, having left Lylyth on one health point, and forgetting the long gunners get two shots if they don't move probably lost me the game but hey......... I actually hit something.........small victories!

Denzark's Hammer. The prelude

This post is very much inspired by Asslessman's blog leadplague which I cannot recommend enough!

"You called for us Commander Denzark?"

"Yes, come in Sergeants, I have a mission for you both".

"You are to teleport onto a Genestealer infested Tug and then crash it into a Genestealer infested planet! So it's a sucicidal, one way only, no hope of return mission!  Any questions?"

Smash mouth Warmachine

Once again Al and I meet up for a game.

Then the words I dread to hear "I'm a little Space Hulked out, We haven't played Warmachine for ages, What do you think?"

What do I think?

If I hate Warmachine, it's time to pass on the hate to someone else!

Wee Machine.

So after the misery that was my Journey man league experiences last night I needed a game of Wee Machine!

What is Wee Machine?

Basically it is Warmachine I play with my kids.

"A (Space Hulk) bridge too far?"

Al and I are on a roll and have once again managed to meet up for a third consecutive Thursday.

Once again Al breaks open the Shiny, shiny box ...................... and I get my first suprise of the evening!

Roaring heroically, or screaming like a big girl....... you decide!

7000 hits

wow 1000 hits in under 30 days.

Thats a first!

Saga on the super cheap!

So I am skint at the moment and I mean really skint!

Summer is a crappy time for toy sales at the shop before the Christmas rush, we have had a MASSIVE amount of building work done on the house and the summer was spent at several holiday camps due to the profusion of dust, builders and disruption at the house.

All this comes at a time when Jesus George introduces us all to Saga. Typical!

I want in but as you can see from this post I cannot excuse buying another load of miniatures! This has to be cheap and I mean SUPER CHEAP.

First things first SAGA dice.

I would love to support Gripping beast on this one but there is no way I can excuse £12 for some die.

I quick trip to ebay and thats 10 blank die for £2.10 !

The Gripping Beast forums provide printable sheets where you can cut and stick the symbols on but I found these tend to fall off mid - game ("of course I rolled 6 rares! Honest Guv."), which is far from ideal.

In the end I pull out the brushes and 15 min later, voila!

thats £2.10 baby!

The hardest thing about this is not painting extra "rare" symbols on to give my self an unfair advantage. One spray of varnish and their all done.

8 Saga die plus two spares for £2.10. RESULT!


Next figures.

Journey man league. Game two

I was loving the league, lots of players in attendance, the games are fast and furious and the swap around times were minimal as no one could spent 45 minutes perusing over a huge stack of cards thinking about what they were going to field next (you know who you are!)

Did everyone buy purple paint in the Mini Empire closing down sale?

Blue on Blue. The Armoury Journey man league begins

10th of October the official start of the Armoury Journey man league witnessed a full house at 51 Station Rd and a cracking set of fast paced games to boot.

It's Blue on Blue mental action to the last roll of the die!

As soon as I saw Anthony was in attendance I know who I wanted my first opponent to be!

Space Hulk or England Vs San Marino?

It's Thursday and I have two choices; Playing Space Hulk with Al or watching England Vs San Marino!

15 min later I am in the car and on the way to the shop......... No contest really!

Orctober. The Green streak 'ooligans

So its ORCTOBER a celebration of all thats green and good!

It starts innocently enough. If I have a bloodbowl team, I need some bloodbowl fans, Right!

It also gives me the chance to buy any miniatures I find interesting which I would not have an excuse to buy otherwise.


Barn Dance anyone? 30 points of Warmachine

After a long hiatus Al and I finally get to lock horns again via Warmachine.

30 points of heavy metal action.

Rebel vs Traitor the eternal struggle between Al and I
