七転び八起き “Fall down seven times, stand up eight.” On 8 TP and 21 OP, with two majors and a minor I went into Day 2 excited and with high expectations!  The previous evening, I had done a little bit of homework, browsing through Army to see what units I could expect to face from Adam…

UK Masters 2019 Part 1 – Mastering The Masters

Mastering the Masters With only 2 weeks to go before the UK Infinity Masters 2018, I finally made the decision to go!  It wasn’t the best time for a weekend away, as I’d just started a new Job, but I kept thinking of the great time I’d had at the 2016 Masters.  I hadn’t made…

St Albans Smackdown IV

Another great Smackdown tournament in St Albans, UK. Really nice venue, at a scout hall with lots of space to move around.  We set up 12 folding tables and 4×4 MDF table toppers for the tournament. The folding tables were nice as they were about 6’ long, so enough space to put all your tokens and junk…

XenoTech EXTREME!

The road to Season 10: Xenotech starts at Wayland Games in Hockley, Essex.  Good turn-out of 12 players, some local, but also some Yuan Yuans AD: Combat Jumping from the Hydra and Thomas mercenary companies (and you think Ikari has a bad rep!). The missions were: Highly Classified, FrostByte and Engineering Desk.  The objective room…
