War Meet - Episode 5 - and they shall feel no fear...

Welcome to Warmeet 5!

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. There is a short story I wrote available covering the 'events so far' available for free download here.

The events of this warmeet have yet to be determined and will be announced after Warmeet 4.

Your welcome to come along and socialise, paint, or play. No models required.

We learned a few things from our previous Warmeets. Namely that preparation is key to a speedy battle. Battles will be mostly be limited to 1-1.5 on will be allowed to go over if both parties agree and there is room for others to play (this is more than likely true) - so the more you have learned the basics and and the characteristics of your Army the more fun you'll have.

As always, I want to emphasise that 'beginners' are welcome and encouraged to come. We have a page dedicated to 'How To Play' with some great video guides. 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. This can range from small spotlights to paint by or large lamps. The pub is great in every way other than it getting a bit dark in there. 

Please also read over the Battle Preparation and What You Need To Play pages 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:

7pm-7:15pm  [open socialising]

7:15pm-7:30pm [announcements]

7:30pm - 8:30pm [Battle Group 1] or [Novice Group 1]  or [Paint Group 1]

      haha. Our battles always seem to end up finishing at the crux! We're going to have to work to speed things up a bit m'thinks.

      Yeah - everyone of models was dead in the end - apart from those that got panicky and ran off. It was a good game though and I had alot of fun.

    As good, or even better than last time, could have a game with my very own army for the first time, and Orks kicked ass moderately! good to see things are working well with the group!

    Great documentary 9pm BBC Two tonight (Tuesday) about one of mankind's most strategic conflicts... the Cold War.

    Hey Guys! Right so I'm going ahead with the normal - that is - no change to the above - meeting time.

    I'll be purchasing the items off the Group Buy List! If you want to get in on the 25% discount post your requests at the discussion [b]NOW[/b] as i'm going tomorrow afternoon.

    http://www.meetup.com/The-London-Warhammer-Gaming-Guild/messages/boards/thread/39123852

    Please also bring your [b]ARMY LISTS[/b] if your planning on playing. If your not sure how to make an army list - thats fine - its something we could all probably go over. We've been eyeballing it for a while now but I think we're all (mostly) to a point where we need to be sure.

    Your welcome to publish your lists on the discussion forum too - or - just bring them in if you want to keep things 'surprising' Theres also a video here on making an army...

      Awesome Jack! I got a response from a guy who builds them in America and he's offered to consult with any problems we have. We're getting into it now! :)

    Got back from Tenerife last night, guess who brought home a supermarket bag full of tiny plastic men (orks?) and some random bits :P

      Seen those, pretty cool, but I prefer having my army be MINE. Sculpting, bitswaping and kitbashing is the most fun part to me :D

      Yeah - bears not exactly tournament official (actually this is one of the reasons I'm reticent of converting over 50% of a model - in case that ever became an option for me).

      November 6, 2013

    • Peter D.

      Aye, I've always applied an 'OEM +' ethos towards any modification. Otherwise one can really risk losing the authenticity of the piece.

    I would like to get the long part of assembling and painting out of the way in these early stages of my hobby so not to concern my self with this aspect when I start the raids so once again I'll be stuck at the painting table (I also find this part quite relaxing). Also, whilst I'm doing that I'm reading some Dark Eldar fiction so to give my cabal a little character and place in wider scheme of Comorqaugh and our clubs evolving story line.
