2 days of Saga, 2 days of apocalypse what's not to like

We have had the pleasure of 2 Blue Moon months at the club so far this year. Basically a second Friday night rolls over into the third Saturday and the Church kindly allows us to leave stuff set up overnight. Last month we had a huge fantasy and smaller 40K game. This month was time for the 40K players to bring the bigger toys out.

We use a bit of club money from the sale of cheap drinks and chips to pay for nibbles and lunch so I chose not to play in the big game but I did get to play Saga on Friday night as ½ of the Viking team and then again played on Saturday to introduce it to 2 newer club members. I also got to show a lad a cut down version of Warhammer Fantasy for 40 minutes in a small skirmish. He won so needless to say loved the game.


On with the show.



An old hand and new player at blood bowl, who is who?

MTG guys Friday

 Anglo Saxons vs Vikings

6500 points a side in 40K mayhem

Lots of toys on Friday night

Two lots of Fallen Angels allied with the orks.

Anglo Saxon hearth guard near the mead hall.
One of my favourite units, ork looters, so many dice are thrown but typically orky fashion they can't hit the barn door.

Must be early in the night as there are still smiles.

Saxons held off by terrain.

The Cocked dice, yep just sat there on open terrain.
Warlord in trouble
And bounces the Hearth guard. Please note the two men in the back ground. I really like the lack of morale in Saga, as in it is up to you to realise that if you don not remove your single miniature that remains from a unit out of harms way you are going to be down one saga dice.
Clash of Warlords and the Vikings Win woo hoo.

Day 2 Vikings vs Anglo Saxons again, this time I did not play.



Slowly the armies are whittled away.

A much closer game with the Vikings losing this time.

Indulging a young lad, he thought this might look good.
He was correct.
Well enough for know. I hope to get a game of Kings of War in next Friday the 28th of March. So hope to see the club members there.
