A Pilgrimage, a journey of spiritual or moral significance. Some pilgrims travel to significant shrines or holy cities and some dudes even trekked across a desert once carrying a load of spices that everyone knows the names of even if nobody knows exactly what they are. Me? I went to Germany with a boatload of models and some dice.
Now I’m not saying Spiel is of some religious significance but for a lot of gamers this is it, this is where it all happens. This is the Promised Land. And to be honest, yeah, I was kinda feeling it too. What I’m offering here isn’t a full blown review, I was working during the event so didn’t get to see enough to do a full blown coverage. What you get here is my personal experience along with the games that really moved me. Enjoy!
Nothing beats getting up at 6am on a cold, wet, Parisian morning to go and play some toy soliders. This time was slightly different however as this time I was preparing myself to be fired across Europe in a tin can, direction: Poland and the Warmachine and Hordes World Team Championships!
Last Weekend, in a part of France far far away, 71 people gathered in the small town of Parthenay, to battle it out in a two day event, this was the French national x-wing championship and man was it awesome!
Right then I’m back into it so enough talk (big words for a guy writing a blog I know) let’s get down to business. Getting back into the game means essentially two things: I need to play and I need to paint. Best get cracking then!
The end of October saw the arrival of Frontlines 2 to The Outpost in Sheffield. It’s been a few months in the making and as my first time organizing an event like this it was a learning curve but in the end it turned out to be a great day! I thought I’d talk a bit about what we did, show you guys some photos and also give out some tips on how to run your own event like this!
A real treat for you boys and girls, a fantastic video, with commentary, of the finals of this years Warmachine Weekend! Many thanks to Team Covenant for such fantastic video coverage, from all of us who couldn’t be there it’s great to see this kind of high level play move by move. Enjoy!
One day, 5 games, 20 points. very fast and very dirty. Perfect Warmachine atmosphere! Was a bit of a rollercoaster of a day, being my return to tournament gaming after so long. It was really enjoyable, a great day but it did bring up just how rusty I am and how much I need to up my game for future events! Anyways on to the games!
