Star Wars X-Wing

After a bit of deliberation (people at the club are also playing the Game of Thrones card game) I purchased the starter box for Star Wars X-Wing. When I opened the cellophane I could tell it was a good quality product from the care that had been taken in the packaging; everything fitted snugly, but…

Thoughts on latest Space Wolves books

After a lot of anticipation I purchased both of the latest Space Wolves books; Codex: Space Wolves and Champions of Fenris and I went for Digital from Black Library once again as I like the portability of digital products. This weekend gone I’ve spent most of my spare time reading both of them (and still…

Playlist for writing

This is the music I’m doing most of my work to at the moment, none of that relaxing stuff, really need a bit of energy right now. Though there is another Southern Gothic playlist that is creeping up the favourites at the moment. This has helped get me through the selection process for another issue…

M15 Pre-release in Durham

originally published on CCG Project 13th July 2014 After yesterday’s success I was all fired up for another go at this, I got there to find all the black seeded boxes gone… Luckily though I had been using Magic Drafting‘s M15 Sealed Pool Generator for some practice and had really liked most of the outcomes…

M15 Pre-release in Stockton

originally published on CCG Project 12th July 2014 This morning as I was getting ready I noticed on my Facebook feed that Beanie Games in Stockton-on-Tees was running a pre-release at 10 a.m. which I could make.

Power Hungry Magic

originally published on CCG Project 4th July 2014 The boys at the school I work at have started playing Commander. I liked the idea of this so have gone and purchased a pre-built Commander deck called Power Hungry, based around token making and graveyard fiddling. I’m starting to play MTG again which is very strange…

Let him know ASAP as this could be fun. There are already close links between Darlington’s Dogs of War and the Sunderland Games Club, it would be great to see…

Space Wolves flyers

The rumours for Space Wolves are really flying now… The latest that I’ve taken a bit to think about is the announcement of unique flyers for Space Wolves; the Stormwolf and the Stormfang Gunship. Both come in reasonably costed for what they do: Stormwolf – Fast Attack – Points = Land Raider minus 35 BS4…

A long awaited return

I’ve just finished writing the last assignment for my last Open University course, this course really sucked up all my spare time due to the rigours of study and writing coherent words. I now seem to have hours free every day to work on other things, such as my blog projects. I’m going to review…
