SKELP 2012

 The Angus Wargames Club ran a
A Miniature Wargames Exhibition known as 
SKELP 2012 on the 
Saturday 20th October

I went there to run intro games of Urban mammoth's sci-fi skirmish game Urban war. I left in the morning with a stonking sore head, but i left anyway hoping that i would feel better as the day progressed as i would be there on my own.

Here are a few pictures of some of the games and gaming tables on display.

Space crusade ran by Edinburgh league of gamers

A band of brothers game by RAF leuchars

Aberdeen Wargames club ran a game using the Dux Bellorum rules

I'm not sure who ran this table (below) or what rules they used but it was a very nice table with some great looking miniatures on display

Empire of the Dead ran by the Glasgow Games Group

Sherlock Holmes and Dr.Watson Versus Jack the Ripper

The next table was ran by the Inverness roleplaying and wargaming club

South east Scotland wargames club

7TV Demo table by Crooked dice

My Urban war demo table
Four starter teams of Junkers, Syntha, Viridians and the V.A.S.A wage war in the industrial zone of Iskandria.

My throbbing sore head that i hoped would disappear did the opposite making me feel quite nauseous.

The show i felt was a lot quieter than previous years but saying that i felt that the Angus wargames club did a fantastic job at making everyone feel welcome and organising the event. A huge thank you to them.

Slight delays but still here.

 Laptop and camera issues.

 As the title says i am still here i have just been having a little delays, my laptop and digital camera have both been playing up. So as soon as they are fixed I will be able to post on a more frequent basis. 

Upcoming posts:

The new and improved Bushido rules have been released under the guise of Bushido: New Dawn on the 16th of September this year.

Bushido New Dawn here

I have had a quick look at the rules and I'm looking forward to having a game with them. The rules seem a lot more streamline and the close combat is a much more deadly affair.

I hope to post up a battle report with the new rules soon, i have already begun work on painting up my Cult of Yurei force.

On the 40k front i have finally finished my imperial guard cityfight army to 1500pts which i plan to get more pictures of. 

Three Imperial guard servitors

Now that my Guard are finished i am now going to take a dive into the realm of 40k chaos with a Death guard army. At this point i dont have the new Chaos space marine codex, so i haven't yet started on writing my army list but i dare say with will include most of the dark vengeance set.

The first squad of Chaos space marine from the Death Guard legion that i did a few years ago when i started the project.

upcoming events:
        The Angus Wargames Club
A Miniature Wargames Exhibition
Saturday 20th October

The skelp event is here on Facebook

There will be a Urban war  Team tourney on the 25th of November this year which i will be taking part in using my Koralon. Me and my team mate haven't worked out our 250pt lists yet, but you can be sure its going to be brutal. This event is the first urban war event that i have actually played in, as the other events i organised but never had the chance to play.
