Club on the 27th

The games club will be run at my place this saturday (the 27th of december) starting at 12. I have room for 3 tables so everyone won't be able to play at the same time but that doesn't matter hugely. It is likely we'll have to finish up a bit earlier than normal as some of us are probably heading to the football in the evening.

There will be no charge, (unlike those scurrelous bastards that run the real club with their inordinate fees and taxes, just kidding btw) but bring something along for everyone to share.

Club not on over Christmas, back 17th January

Next Saturday (the 13th of December) is the last weekend the club's running this year. We'll be back on Saturday the 17th of January.

Congratulations to the Cousenator!

Our congratulations to Chris, who qualified (albeit only just) for this years WHFB Masters tournament in Sydney.

Play well, and may your dice always roll 6's, except of course when taking LD tests.

Campaign Rules

Here are the rules we're going to be using for the map-based campaign.

Rules are to be used as per the original Mighty Empires rules (you can download them from the GW site), except where described below.

Axemaster 2008 Daemon FAQ

Because the Daemon army book is so recent, Games Workshop have not yet released an FAQ to deal with ambiguities in the rules. Taking the lead from Convic, we will be using a pre-defined set of rulings. These are included below for your edification:
