The Final Post

Hi all, firstly a big thank you to everyone who has followed this blog over the last year.

As work on my eldar has ground to a halt for the moment (darn Warmachine niceness), I have started a slightly more generic hobby blog covering all my wargaming projects, and any other random stuff I choose to drop in.

So please check it out at

Happy gaming!

Its all Dan’s fault

And this time I’m not just talking about Warmachine. You see young Mr Currey came up with an idea earlier in the year. This idea was for a group (a club if you like) to bring very active individuals from gaming community together to do stuff outside of their clubs.

A club for the dispossessed and overly enthusiastic of us; who want to do stuff beyond our own local communities. Dan’s enthusiasm being infectious, it wasn’t long before there was a Facebook group, a club, a blog, and an event. Thus, the Legion of Snake Eyes was born!


So what is Legion? It is a group of gaming activists, a group that will hopefully enable us to run and do stuff we cannot do alone. A good example is our first event, Where Sleeping Gods Lie. This is not a project my home club would be interested in, however by banding together, myself and two other activists can run this.

Where is it? Everywhere! Although we are in theory a UK based group, there is nothing to stop us having members in other countries.

Who can join? Anyone over 18 years old, if invited. Being a bit of an old boys (and girls) club, membership is by invitation only and only to individuals of good standing in the community. In practice, this means if we like you, you can join.

In short, Legion is there to enable like-minded gaming activists to do what they want to do.

Cool huh?

Where Sleeping Gods Lie

There is a legend. To the east of the Iron Kingdoms, even east of the Iosans, lies a great desert. Among the sands lies a forgotten city, all but consumed by time, all but erased by history. At the centre of this forgotten place lies a ruined temple, and buried depth in its vaults is a tomb.

Made of baked sandstone tougher than the finest steel, untouched but the march of time; this tomb is unmarked save for one small inscription. In one of the most ancient languages of Caen, it spells just one word. That word is Nyrro.

I’m proud to announce myself and a few other familiar faces, now draw together into the Legion of Snake Eyes, will be running a Warmachine Campaign Weekend on the 26/27th February 2011 at Triple Helix Wargames in Westbury, Wiltshire.

The weekend will have six narrative driven games of varying sizes as the players try to unravel the mystery of what happened to one of the Iosan gods.

On one side, the undead Priests of Nyrro have enlisted Khador and Cyrx allies. On the other, the mysterious Seekers have drawn the Retribution of Scyrah and Cygnar into the fray. All around other factions have gathered for many reasons, some to settle old scores, others to simply make a profit.

Each player will require a 15 and 25 point army list; plus an additional 5 points of units or solos. You will not be using both lists at the same time so they can include the same models (but do not have to). The additional 5 points must make a legal force when added to either army list.

Players can bring any faction (from Warmachine or Hordes), but both lists must be from the same faction or charter.

Tickets will be £20 for the weekend. To register contact

The full pack should be available by the end of November.
