War Meet - Episode 43 - "The Beginning"

Welcome to Warmeet Episode 43 - "The Beginning" 

As always, anyone is welcome to come along and socialise, paint, or play. No models required to attend.

If you do want to play, know that preparation is key to a speedy battle. Please do bring army lists with you for what your bringing (I suggest Battle Scribe for Computer/Mobile devices - its free - knows the rules better than you or I - and does all the math for you).

Battles will be pegged to last the full 3+ hrs (or until 5 turns are complete) wherever possible but will be allowed to go over if both parties agree and there is room for others to play - so the more you have learned the basics and and the characteristics of your Army the more fun you'll have!


Beginners Welcome...!

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.

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.


Payment:

We operate a FREEMIUM model, replete with perks for those who contribute!. Contributions on the day are suggested at £1.50 and you'll be a 'Solid Warhammer' for that week. If you want to pay in advance you can get 4 Warmeets for £5.00 (you'll receive a stamp card and I'll keep a separate record also). Larger contributions are welcome! ;-)



The Story So Far...

A NEW story arc is in effect. While last year we saw off an Ork invasion involving one sector, this Campaign will have galactic implications!

Each Warmeet will have 1-2 feature battles which will steer the course of events, the balance of power in the sector, and the course of the campaign as a whole.

Be sure to see the discussion board topic to check up the events so far.

To see the published short story based on events from the previous campaign it is for available covering the previous events available for free download here



NOTES:

LIGHTING: 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. 

FOOD: Full menu is available for those wishing to have dinner at the pub. Theres also a great Thai food place 30 seconds away with food for about £7.95

ENTERTAINMENT: we can also show a film at the day on the projector screens. Suggestions welcome!

    ++MECHANICUM DOMINUS+INFINIUM++

    -Data uploaded, Experimental Unit phase 2 testing complete.

    +Results are promising, infiltration into the Astra Militarum Platoon was a success but to see the Necrons again must mean a future invasion.

    -Tau expeditionary force provided assistance, Experimental Unit's tactical matrix fared a lot better but fared no better with its own use of force.

    +Noted, move the Experimental Unit to a new configuration and we can monitor the results.

    -Acknowledged Overseer, with the success of Astra Militarum slowing the Necron advance both forces were able to hold the Objectives to call in reinforcements from which the Necrons promptly left. Experimental Unit and forces were triumphant but obliterated, victory at the last moment.

    +No need for a scorched earth routine to be implemented. New mission parameters will be passed on soon, along with a taskforce from Forgeworld Grius so we can start making use of this.

    ++TRANSMISSION END++

    Warhammers. I got a phone call at 11:45pm last night From a not very happy Alexandra bartender who said that he was having to put the room to back together. Please come together at the end of the night to put the room back to rights so we can continue to make use of this wonderful venue. Thank you for your help and Vicitis Honor!

      Sorry, Jason, Will and I were the last to leave on Thursday. We weren't sure what we needed to do and everyone else had cleared out. Lesson learned and will make sure we do it if the last to leave in future.

    Thanks for a great game last night guys. My main lesson was that demigryphs don't actually auto win against everything. Bloody blood knights. Great to meet you Melvin, really happy to see some wood elves around - a big dragon, a treeman and some tree kin in 2000 points is awesome to see!

      August 28

    August 28

  • Iana

    2 · August 25

    • Peter D.

      Hells to the yes! Great to see you again. I will bring some paper craft if your comofrtable with that. We've grown a bit since you were last here Iana :) Great to have you back!

    • Iana

      Ohh sorry Thursday night I forgot I am going to an event which is showing how I can build sceneries with papers! But I will be there next week and will bring a guest. Apparently the group has grown ! You are the MC :)

    Dataslate - officio assassinorium, get ready for my assassins guys...also my inquisitors.

    1 · August 23

    • Peter D.

      I have some old school assasins and inquisitors - are the rules fit for 7th?

      August 26

    • Fawaz

      assassins rock and inquisitors make good HQ choices compared to the usual humans, they can be a bit situational though.

      August 26

  • Fawaz

    Got 1k of Ad Mech to rock out with their spocks out. Possibly Inquisition and Assassin too...but maybe not this week.

    2 · August 25

  • Peter D.

    VADIM - when are we going to see you again?

    2 · August 26

  • Peter D.

    Hello Warhammers! Looking forward to seeing you all Thursday. Will be posting the suggested pairings tonight. I probably won't be playing due to it still being very hard to transport m'stuffs but hopefully will remedy this soon. In the meantime I'm sure you'll refer enough destruction to make up for my restrictions. Victis Honor!

    August 26

    • Peter D.

      JASON - what army are you bringing?

      August 26

  • Tom S.

    hope to come down soon. I've been
    furiously painting my space wolves
