  1. Ran a Few Games down at Swindon and District (SAD) Wargamers and at Cheltenham Warchiefs this month. Currently scoping dates for next tournament in a few months and hoping to do a build up campaign to it. If you are in the Swindon or Cotswolds and fancy a game let me know. always up for demoing.
  2. wong

    I've Run this list to 2 tournamnet wins and 2 decent finishes in UK. Wong, Ooo Glowy, Do Over Old Cranky Burt Gracie, Saddle Iron skeeter swine cursed Bayou gremlin x 2 stuffed piglet x3 12 activations (including reactive gracie), drop fast burt (5+ of tomes, you see 1 on average if you cranky, stone for cards and drop do over) and swine curse into opponents deployment zone turn 1. It is obnoxious. spoke about it on arcane reservoir 48. Wong is a glorified scheme runner scoring claim jump on his own every game.
  3. Mike good event as always, admin was spot on, Venue was good and information must have been clear because John seemed to know. (He managed tipairbus up against opponents so guess he did it right ) played 5 great games against 5 great opponents but can you please ban oxfordian mages? Played 12 over the course of the weekend More seriously the space matts at the bottom of the hall would have been better as just masking tape on boards. I didn't play on them but they hurt my eyes when I looked at them between breaks. baring my game against Larry I finished all my games... sorry @Bane but I think the booze had the better of me. I think 150 mins all up was spot on. as @PanzerHarris said good luck pleasing everyone the pairing system. I thought it was fine. Each version has pros and cons. I like the only 1 faction and master per round per team, think that should stay. too much of infaux will be in training for next year, losing 6-4 to the eventual winners who were deffo the better team and yorkfaux putting us back in place and destroying hopes of best UK; yorkfaux were also the better team i'd like to add.
  4. Larry I am glad to hear you guys are a club and it shows good plays hanging out and playing together makes people better at the game they love. Will be hosting more games with my club to up our game in response ;). sportsmanship - You guys were a great team to play, Too much infaux enjoyed our game .... sorry we didn't finish, it wasn't through lack of trying I promise :p. good job on winning and people may be being disingenuous and looking for reasons as to why you did better than them, its natural but also unfair on you guys. UK teams just need more practice. also blaming the 'weaker' members of our teams doesn't help. Look forward to seeing you guys next year, getting another beer and closing the 9-0 gap. Conor
  5. Following to tournaments I am back to focusing on intros and trying to arrange a league. If your in west and near to Swindon or Cheltenham send me a message and I'll get you involved.
  6. I'm keen so James Henley will be too
  7. something has come up and i may need to drop, @Clousseau I'll keep you informed. also means James henley may not be able to make it as im his lift.
  8. you may be right but but as @codingCaptor said we have some excellent models which stops many of us looking 'outside the box'. back to the gators, people complain that a lot of models cant keep up with Mah and are too slow to get use out of her and she ends up left out on a limb. now 3 from the shadow gators are excellent support for her (they are insignificant anyway so lose nothing from from the shadows) McTavish has such threat he can still influence the board around Mah. now I'm not saying I'm a ninja list builder or synergy finder but if I automatically dismissed the gators for lightning bugs I would never have tried this list to find out how effective it is against a lot of opponents due to the high amount of pressure. now outside of this list the wild boars would be better but I think the 3 AP and the fact most opponents have never encountered gators makes up for the requirement for a 1ss upgrade on McTavish. on a different note I think this is a good debate to have to work out what models need changing to gain a unique selling point as MyhticFox talks about on a number of podcasts. and finally I really need to try the emissary as I don't own him yet.
  9. I have found uses for both whiskey golemn (a great scheme runner and flank holder( and 3 gators with Mctavish in Mah tucket (at ml6 they become a real threat) I can not see a need for moon shinobi, they are sub optimal in every-way. the other issue i faction has is some undercosted models such as Burt that skew gremlin players thinking. My final point is we are in my experience the worst faction for group thinking in accepting what models are good and what models are bad.
  10. Kai can you put me down for the meal please. if you don't have troy Ashdown for the meal i imagine he'll be up for it as he is with me and Mark
