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. This would be my first tournament in about 7 years, since the Time Spiral pre-release and I was…

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…

Munchkin

originally published on CCG Project 4th July 2014 Just bought Munchkin today, not sure what to class it as. I don’t think it’s a C.C.G. as the cards in the decks are pre-determined but it isn’t a board game (even though I bought the deluxe version which has a little board in it). So I’ve…

Bolt Action and X-Wing

As a treat to myself at the end of the month I’m going to buy the starter boxes for these two games. Bolt Action by Warlord Games and Star Wars: X-Wing by Fantasy Flight Games, even though I still really enjoy WH40K and Fantasy I want to branch out a bit and these two starter…

Possible North East residential wargaming tournament

Michael Botterill is looking to set up a North East Residential Wargaming Tournament and was asking for thoughts on this at Survey Monkey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QTJXDLR. 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…

End of December update

Well it’s been a while since my last update for the building of models and here is a pile in one go 🙂 I’ve finished building all the models from the Ogre Kingdoms battalion box and from this box (and some spares from the Mournfang Cavalry boxes) I was able to build 8 Ironguts, 4…

Consolidation

I have another couple of blogs, CCG Project and RPG Encyclopedia, and haven’t really done much with either of these blogs for a long time. So I’ve decided to consolidate these to this blog as the theme is consistent – Potentially Lethal circumstances and problems. So far there is a list of CCGs and an…

Challenge update

Here are some more pics Just waiting on a clear day now to base-spray all the models I’ve built so far 🙂 May just have to keep on building whilst I wait for that day to coincide with my time off Next little project is to build three Yhetees and a Slaughtermaster (and if I…

Bulls

Just started building six Ogre Bulls now that I’ve built the last of the doggies, hope to finish building these tomorrow. Only problem is I’ve a beginners session at the local GW shop for Fantasy for a couple of hours tomorrow afternoon, might get in the way. Going to run them as two units of…

More doggies

Not part of the shop challenge but these are part of my December pledge on another forum 10 more Fenrisian Wolves for my Apocalypse formation and allied detachment for Blood Angels, they are cheap and fire magnets meaning my stronger units generally get to where I want them with very little attention. Though if they…

GW Darlington shop challenge

I’ve decided to enter the Darlington GW shop challenge, buy 600pts worth of Fantasy army in the first phase, then two phases of no more than £50 per month – all to be built and painted in an IronMan type challenge playing a few Triumph and Treachery games along the way. My first purchase was:…

Boxes upon boxes…

Well I had my collecting head on for a while and I thought I would search out all the unmade and unpainted models I had acquired. This turned out to be quite a few… Will concentrate on building the Ogre Kingdom and Space Wolves models as these are my two main armies, once these are…

Fenrisian Wolves

It seems apt that my first post to this blog is about my Fenrisian Wolves as it was these models and their interaction with Canis Wolfborn that re-fueled my interest in playing Warhammer 40K. I really fancied a spammed out list of 90 Fenrisian Wolves, all the HQs on wolves, 15 Thunderwolf Cavalry and then…
