I'm on leave over the Easter and Anzac period. This ties in nicely with the kids school holidays so while I do get to spend a whole week with them I'm also free for a week so roll on some Gaming!
Natcon: Post Apoc Skirmish
The NZ national wargaming convention was held at the Shirley club by the Cavaliers this year and the Stephen (the organiser) kindly let us set up a table for some demo action
We played three games over two days and managed to get some good input into the game design from some folks as well as simplify it (a lot) so it's now running really smoothly. Much hilarity ensued as various encounters occurred as well as some interesting post battle results!
We also had a Bluetooth speaker streaming the appropriate soundtrack from my phone :)
MORE Post Apoc!
Got another game in with Jamie the other night as well. This time we introduce a card system for the order mechanic and tightened up some of the modifiers and reactions. This worked way better than using dice as well.
Warhammer Fantasy: Undead vs Skaven
Popped round to Nathan's (Spanner in the Works) place today for some WHFB 1600pt action. I'm trying out a list for his Ides of May tourney in early May. I have gone for a Crypt Spirit theme with Old undead mostly and tried out some Hexwraiths (mounted flaming grim reapers!), Grave Guard and a Banshee along with more skeletons then my Warclouds list.
Lots to do but the plan is;
1) Keep working on Post Apoc rules
2) Finish Brotherhoid Warband
3) Paint more Skeletons (about 60!)
Cheers for reading a massive wall of text - congrats if you go this far!
