War Meet - Episode 2 - What's that smell?

Moving on from the Success of our First Meetup, we'll be looking for even bigger and better things from our second Warmeet!

As many of you know we are describing a story with each War Meet culminating at the end of year. Each story ark is affected by events at the War Meet so if you want to influence events, and prevent the invasion of the Green Tide, be sure to be at your best on the day.

We learned a few things from the previous War Meet. Namely that preparation is key to a speedy battle. Battles will be limited to one hour (which is typical) so the more you have learned  the basics and and the characteristics of your Army the more fun you'll have.

I want to emphasise that 'beginners' are welcome and encouraged to come. In fact, since many people still have yet to play a game I will be running a table for people just getting to grips with the game. I imagine this table will be popular among our novice players so if you want to be there first please do reserve your place.

Also while I have purchased additional lights, any mobile lighting you want to bring to help illuminate events would not go unappreciated. The pub is great in every way other than it getting a bit dark in there. 

Please also read over the previous War Meets Wrap Up for important notes, details on what to bring to a War Meet, and a link to some 'how to play' videos.

We'll hash out the evening as follows:

8pm-8:15pm  [open socialising]

8:15pm-8:30pm [announcements]

8:30pm - 9:30pm [Battle Group 1] or [Novice Group 1]  or [Paint Group 1]

9:30pm - 10:30pm [Battle Group 2] or [Novice Group 2] or [Paint Group 2]

10:30pm [Battle Group Results Announced and Closing Statements]

11:00pm [Doors Close]


If you have any questions don't hesitate to   e-mail me or post a comment below.

Welcome and Be Bold! 

victis honor  

NOTE: Full menu food is available for those wishing to have dinner at the pub

SPECIAL NOTICE: we'll also be showing the infamously terrible but 'best we have for now until something else comes along' Warhammer 40k film - ULTRAMARINES.

    Just a quick update from me - still building an army and have now added wheels from the kromlech range to my GW autocannons. Hopefully will be able to post a 500 or 750pt list for meet 4. Additionally bought some of this cheap vacuum formed terrain http://www.amera.co.uk/product.php?range=z - namely the ruined buildings and 2 corner trench sections - going to pop round to Homebase after work - see if I can't get some cheap n cheerful modular board organised (thinking mud terrain).

    Haven't gotten time to paint anything it seems... I might get a painting space for the first "round", might play a bit later.

    Hi guys! SO looking at dates for next week. The Dark Sphere games day I spoke of is £2/£3 a head apparently. Its on the 30th. Thursday the 31st is Halloween! So I don't know if you have any commitments then. I'm going to look at getting something going for that evening anyway. Maybe we can dress up or do something halloweeny with Cahos :) I'll come up with a 'narraitive'

    Whos up for it?

    October 25, 2013

    • Jack S

      Ah, hadn't connected that its Halloween. I'm afraid I have other business to attend to that night (cue organ music). I'll try my best to make an appearance at Dark Sphere though.

      October 25, 2013

    • Peter D.

      Haha. We don't have to dress up. Just maybe have a halloween themed evening. Dress up is optional :) I need to clear it with the Pub owner first. He's linda MIA on weekends. Sorry chaps.

      If you do end up going to the Dark Sphere please mention we sent you :)

    Alrighty folks! We're ETA <24hrs. Just want to remind you all to please read the breif here, the wrap up from the last meet, and get to grip with the rules as best you can to be as prepared as possible for the meet!

    I also wanted to remind you that I am brining a lamp with a spotlight attached to the meetup because, as mentioned, it does get quite dark in there. I would encourage any of you to bring any light apparatus (from headlamps up to camping lanterns e.t.c) to help illuminate the space as much as possible. This is less important with playing but much more so with painting.

    I am going to see if I can purchase some sort of portable 'top down' lighting and am open to ideas! Time to hit the car boot sales and antique stores m'thinks!

    Cheers, be bold, and see you tomorrow!

  • Jack S

    Hi there! - is it ok if I come along? May try and bring along some heavy weapons for painting (not at full army strength yet!)

    • Peter D.

      It's totally okay if you come along Jack. More the merrier :)

    Count me in! I'll try to paint a handfull or two of my miniatures, If I keep just modelling everything I field will be just grey and green...

    I'm also bringing some bits and pieces I just made, objetive markers and the such... Lightbulbs did the job, but I think these would look a lot cooler! :P
