Mistletoe Wargaming: Snow On 1st 2020 Club Day

Our New Year Resolution was: to start the year with a bang, a game, big robots and snow on the table! Let It Snow!

The trophy for the best picture today goes to StevenE.

Jingle Bells!

We had a club Dropzone game, with Rob, Rogier, Steven, Jonathan and me as umpire. I robbed the christmas store and added LED’s. Here’s the result.

Mark and Espen had robbed the Albert Heijn and played Flames of War between the AH promo christmas model houses.

The right 15mm size!

Dino, Alessio, Chris and Frank played a big robot game and celebrated that 40.000 is one year nearer.

Robots! Let’s kiss them under the mistletoe! And let many more club days come! Next: 19 january, check the website!

Best Wishes For 2020!

What will next year bring to our club of wargamers?

  • After Brexit, the pound will crash. Finally, wargaming will become a very cheap hobby.
  • GW invents ‘Auto Paint’. Auto Paint is a new multicoloured wash that automatically and magically paints every part of miniature in the right colour.
  • NATO will be renamed as ‘North Atlantic Tin Soldier Organization’
  • Celebrities like Justin Bieber and Leonardo DiCaprio will publicly declare that they have been wargamers for a very long time. Suddenly, our hobby is not a geek hobby anymore. Beautiful girls will ask you to bring your favorite miniature to their bedroom, and want you to teach them how to paint to wake their ‘orc inside me’. They will abandon their Porsche Cayenne-boyfriend.
  • In Damascus, the world powers, terrorist organizations, and presidents from Middle Eastern countries agree to spare human lives and fight with dice and hard plastic or white metal figures from now on.
  • The first female pope, Scarlett Johannson I, will open the exhibition ‘Mike’s Mighty Miniatures’ in the Sixtine Chapel in Vatican City, thousands of figures secretly painted by Michelangelo in the 15th century.

And the most radical development:

  • You’re going to paint all your miniatures, even the last one. No lead or plastic pile anymore, ever!

Happy New Year and all the best in 2020!

A Birthday In Blood

We had a full house today. Eight tables, half of them 40k, half of them historical. A house divided cannot stand alone 🙂

We also had a birthday party. Jonathan (his name means ‘gift of God’) had his 33rd happy birthday last weekend and brought us cake. Life is a piece of cake when you’re young. Here’s Johnny!

Sorry, mistake.

HERE’s Johnny:

the less hair, the more mature you look

He played a 40 scenario against Björn. Very christmas: a silent night, Space Marine Claus, ho-ho-ho, and shoot-to-kill just like in Israel. He, Björn, Dino, Ruud and a few others had an excellent 40k-time.

Robert, Rogier, Fred and Rob played Blood and Plunder, the pirate game.

Kaj and Mark tried Black Seas, the naval wargame, X-Wing with sails, Mark called it.

I missed an ADLG Spartans vs Athens Mantinea battle 418 BC). Heard it was fun, but isn t wargame always?
