Yorkshire Renegades January meet!

Hello guys,

The Renegades got together for our monthly meet for January, it was a great success and there was plenty of gaming going on. One of the things I really like about the group is the variation in games being played. While some games may be more popular than others, there always seems to be someone willing to play any ruleset you can think of.

This month there was games of X-Wing, Bolt Action, Lion Rampant, Warhammer 40,00, Space Hulk and Infinity. The best looking table in my opinion was the new Infinity table.

As you can see, it is very Borderlands inspired and looks absolutely fantastic. The colour scheme really pops too, we have some great Infinity terrain at the Renegades but this table is my favourite.

I had a game of Warhammer 40,000 using my Carcharadons for the first time. They are being painted for me by a friend, and are close to being finished. Here are some of the units to drool over:

The two characters and HQ choices. Tyberos on the left and a chaplain on the right. I call him "The White Death" hence the unusual colour scheme for a chaplain.

Tyberos up close. One of my favourite miniatures of all time.

I narrowly managed to scrape a win despite being obliterated by fifty or more Chaos Renegade cultists! It certainly didn't feel like a win though!

All in all, it was another fun meeting. If ever you get the chance to attend one of our meetings or see us at a show then you definitely should, because something awesome is no doubt happening.

Till next time...

Renegades Assemble!

I'm part of the Yorkshire Renegades, a wargaming community filled with some of the finest chaps I've met. A few of the guys are resurrecting their old blogs in effort to encourage working through the backlog. I thought I'd get involved and here we are: my first ever blog post!

I play various games such as Warhammer 40k, Batman Miniatures Game, Bolt Action, X-Wing and I also have the AvP and Halo Fleet Battles games to crack on with! Not only will I (hopefully) blog about those games though I will also feature some of my other nerdy hobbies such as videogaming, action figures and construction toys (LEGO and similar branded toys).

Hopefully this will be the start of something glorious!

To start with, I use the Court Of Owls gang in Batman Miniatures Game and they have just announced a second set of miniatures. I love the Court, aesthetically, thematically and mechanically they just do it for me. My only problem with Knights Models take on them has been the lack of diversity, as they can't team up with any other miniatures unless they are part of the Court Of Owls gang. This meant that their 300 point gang was always the same guys, played the same way.

These new releases have a new, cheaper leader and three new henchmen. Aesthetically they look fantastic. Great sculpts, posing and design, I love that these three new henchmen look more uniform in their appearance. The world of larger point games and more varied gangs is now open to the Court.

Thanks guys,
See you next time.
