War Meet - Episode 6 - Get da boyz!

Welcome to Warmeet 6 - 'Get da Boyz!'



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

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 1.5 hrs but 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.

    Hi Warhammers!

    I re-uploaded the Timelapse video as the other one got badly cropped and 'zoomed' by Youtube. This one is clear as day. In future I'll shoot with the correct aspect ratio in mind.

    Enjoy! Looking for to seeing you Monday (those that can make it) You make this game what it is ;-)

    Hi guys - a word to the wise. Don't forget you can rapid fire your overwatch - that is 2 shots per models with rapid weapons (bolters/lasguns etc). Flamers also get d3 auto hits ^_^

    Great Warmeet everyone! Best yet. I'm reading though Robins Batrep now and looking forward to reading some more for highlights to be included in the 'Wrap Up' post I'll be making later this week.

    It was wonderful to see some new players and attendees getting stuck in and helping each other out.

    I'm pushing Alexandra Pub to confirm more dates. Currently hoping for Tuesday again as that seems to work best for everyone. Great to see you!

    Victis Honor!

      I voted in the poll. Except I can't make this Monday 25th [but don't let that stop you!]

    MISSING PHONE - did anyone see my iphone tonight? If so please post where. I think the footballing people stole the damn thing.

    • Dimitri

      If it isn't @ the Alexandra lost property by now and you're absolutely certain of having it with you when you came than I guess its a new phone time. Inconvenient expense just before festivities though, I feel your pain man, some &@# &£$?% piece of $#!£ dented my car for £400+ repair job last week and ran of. Clearly seen on CCTV but recording quality too poor to make out registration so popos wouldn't lift a finger :-(

      November 21, 2013

    • Peter D.

      Sorry to hear that dude! Yeah I've bit the bullet. Police are on the case and I've sent off for a replacement.

  • James

    Thanks everyone for making me feel so welcome. Looking forward to next week... Hopefully some fantasy battlers can come along.

      There are a few members of our group with fantasy armies, though any of them are yet to attend a single meetup. Perhaps we'll throw some fantasy only events when more peeps join up.

      2 · November 21, 2013

    • Peter D.

      I think we'll *at least* have a table dedicated to Fantasy in the future.

  • Iana

    Overwhelmed by lots of rules but still had fun. Next time will not drink alcohol, it does not help me to think clearly! (but it helped me for the dice I guess ! Booya to the enemy !! :-D)

      Haha You did great Iana ;-)

      You made a fantastic job of this video Peter. And Jack's impromptu directorship turns out to have been INSPIRED; makes for a humorous ending!

      Great video!

    Excellent energy at this meetup!

    Heading to the Meet up in approximately 15-20 minutes if anyone wishes to join me to help setup/have a drink your welcome to join me!

  • Peter D.

    Hi guys - here's what I'm thinking so far.

    -=Battle Group 1=-
    Robin's DARK ANGELS vs Daniels PIRATE ORKS

    -=Battle Group 2=-
    Dimitris DARK ELDAR vs Jack's IMPERIAL GUARD

    -=Battle Group 3=-
    Rob's DARK ELDAR vs Robins (Borrowed) Chaos Marines (controlled by me)

    If I had my Space Wolves down I'd team up with Jack and fight Dimitri and Rob's combined Dark Eldar force but unfortunately I don't (next month!). I suppose we could consider Jacks Imperials as renegades for the purposes of convenience?

    I think the 1 v 1 games might go a bit faster though and therefore get more actual 'action' in - we've struggled in the past to get past the third turn.

    How's this sound to everyone? We can do the 2 v 2 also if your not bothered about getting through the turns in short order.

    November 18, 2013

    • Peter D.

      Cool Rob. We'll play through a game together to get you up to speed. If Iana has a interest I may just have you two fight each other. I highly reccomend watching the HOW TO PLAY videos I linked in the description as a bare minimum if your want to play - even if you have read the rules - it helps A LOT seeing a game actually played out step-by-step beforehand.

      November 19, 2013

    • Jack S

      Up for above - but also 2v2. Is there a way we can get 2 boards going (3)? simultaneously? Excited about playing against DE - (my first army back in mists of time) - their armoury section sounds like a korn back catalog.

      1 · November 19, 2013

  • Rob G.

    Want me to bring Orks or Dark Eldar to this one?

    November 15, 2013

    • Jack S

      written out a proper 500 point list bt dubs - basically 4 squads with hw - one without - 2 cheap platoon commands (with flamers) and one medium HQ with tank busting gear.

      November 18, 2013

    • Robin W

      The Allies Matrix says Eldar and Dark Eldar can be Battle Brothers, so don't worry Ian!

    Here, this might be of interest, I'm not sure if this exact entry was what got me making pirate orks, but it gives you an idea of how they roll.

      There's pirate Orks in Dawn if War 2 also

      November 18, 2013

  • Robin W

    I'd love to have another 2v2 (4-player) alliance/battle mainly because it was such fun! Also more likely someone will know a rule / those who don't will learn.

  • Rob G.

    So I've made a 500pt and 1000pt Dark Eldar army list for Tuesday. Need to glue a lot of heads back on today but they seem to have mostly survived their period in stasis.

    2 · November 17, 2013

  • Dimitri

    My Kabal are just a raider away from mounting initial 500pts recon operations of the Alexandra sector. Cluster***k of zenos fools squabbling over insignificant speck of the galaxy, plenty of sous to feast on and strong slaves for the workshops. I'll be overseeing the assembly of this Raider craft during this gathering.

    1 · November 15, 2013

    • Peter D.

      Robin I thin your snipers are needed to get out that Dark Eldar production facility!

      November 15, 2013

    • Robin W

      A spike in Dark Eldar activity in the Alexandra Sector did not go undetected by the Dark Angels instruments! But short of inter-table ballistic missiles, all we can do is wait and pray.

      2 · November 15, 2013

  • Peter D.

    I've updated the description a bit. Battles will now be set to finish after 1.5hrs instead of 1hr. Robin requested a wargroup and he's got one. He'll be pitted him against Daniels ORKS unless he choose to bow out and pillage some other sector of space ;-)

    Personally I'll be dedicating my time to Painting my new Space Marine Drop Pod and Administering/playing a 'Newbie' table for those wanting to get up to speed on the rules.
