What? They do...everyone knows it!
You know what doesn't suck though? BLUDGEFEST V!!! Yep, that's right, there was a HEAP of resin, plastic, cardboard and other assorted gaming paraphernalia on display and ready to be scooped up!
Look at it all....LOOOOOOOK AT IT!!!
So many goodies! Once again, the magpies were treated well....
And we had games as well!!
GuardCon is quickly rolling around so there was a lot of 40k gaming going on. There was T'au, DKoK, Chaos Marine and their non-heretical brethren and....yeah, damned Space Elves as well.
The fields of battle were wide and varied....
As well as 40k, there was also a game of Warzone Resurrection...
As well as Dystopian Wars....
And then....the thunder and lightening arrived...and we high-tailed it out of these lest we melt!
So, what was your excuse for not turning up...?

Do you have a mountain of toy soldiers who you haven't painted?
Projects imagine but never realised?
Rulebooks unread and dice unrolled?
THEN THIS WEEKEND IS FOR YOU!
That's right people and other assorted identities, this weekend is BLUDGEFEST V. A chance for you to air out the man caves and pack up all that shit you'll never get around to painting no matter how much you tell yourself that you'll get round to it.
Why not send them to a new home and get some cash thrown into the bargain!?
Head along to TCOW this Sunday (13 August) and marvel at the magic that is BLUDGEFEST!!!
And now a message from our founder:
"I heartily endorse this event or product."

Oonst, oonst, oonst...the Disco-Crons are moving!
That's right ladies and gents, we're still firmly in the grip of Warhammer 40k and we aren't looking back! Everyone seems pretty well taken with how the rules are working and how much fun the game actually is. It's a really good example of a game, reinvented and rejuvenated to bring back players.
So, what did we have?
Damo and Darren threw down 1500 point of 'Cron on Space Elf action. Apparently, Darren did have enough troops and everything for 1500 points so he HAD to throw in a Wraithknight....you know, to make it fair and all that jazz....
Space Elf stuff starting their approach to the shiny, disco horde...
Glen and I went for some Marine on Marine action with my, as-yet unnamed Ultramarine Successors taking on the Sons of Russ.
One thing I do know for sure, I hate Force-Shields...
Stu and Andrew headed to Japan this week for a Test of Honour.
While Greg and Daryl headed to the Old World for some Blood Bowl. I believe this was semi-final action for the Auckland Blood Bowl league.
And there were some tiny ships flying around as well...
All in all, a pretty damned good club day!
The next club will see the second Bludgefest for the year, so it's time to dig out all that plastic and resin you're actually never gonna paint and get some cash for it!

Woooo wooooo!!! All aboard the HYPE TRAIN!!!
This weekend was release weekend for the new edition of Warhammer 40k and it has many TCOW gamers now firmly in its daemon-like talons!
Now, hang on, hang on....we don't play GW games at TCOW, right? Well not any more noob! This latest edition now streamlines the game and makes it fun again! A lot of people with whom I have spoken have now said that its the best version of 40k since 3rd.
And so, with new Dark Imperium boxes, Indexes and assorted spikey terrain, we hit the club and had a total of 6 games of 40k played. The races played included:
- Chaos, including Chaos Space Marines of the Khorne, Slannesh and Nurgle flavour.
- Space Marines, and
- BEEEEG MAHREENS!!!!
Necrons about to take on the World Eaters and Kharn...
Tau and Noise Marines hitting it!
Wubba Lubba Wobots!
Apparently Attack Bikes are alright....
You'll have to excuse the unpainted models. A lot of us have recently only acquired our armies!
And while all the HYYYYPE! was around 40k, we still managed to get a few more systems in the door!
X-Wing, Flames of War and Blood Bowl all got a run as well!
So, there you have it team! Another club meeting in the books!
And, if you're not convinced of the Legitness and/or Hypeness of 40k, then maybe you should come and check it out!
THE HYPE.....IS REAL!
