So the day of the show arrived and I was out of the door at 7am to drive to the north of the city and got to the venue just before the doors opened to the other clubs putting on games and the traders. This year, we had moved the show to a new venue,… Read More The Battle of Bogenhof – pt 6 – The Battle!
This post will literally just break down the forces involved with some brief thoughts on how we would be simplifying some of it. As stated before the main aim of the demo game was to field as many large units and big gribblies as possible. Not having any experience in this size game, I turned… Read More Battle of Bogenhof – pt5 – the armies

As ever, work has gotten in the way of any kind of evening life with the hours just killing me recently. However audit is over and I’ve… Read More Hobby Update – where to start?
The rare choices represent, as the title says, those items that are the least commonly available. They are restricted to a 0-2 choice in 8th with a maximum of 25% of the points.

The 5th part of the review covers the special choices. This section, in any edition, inevitably covers the choices that you really want to take, the ‘fun’ stuff. And for dwarves, it is no different.
