Overview of the year to date

Hey guys, how's it all going? Well, for the Masterton Marauders, it is going freaking great!

I was seriously thinking of abandoning the Thursday night meetings a few months back, as they generally consisted of me, and one or maybe two other diehards, and it was actually costing me money to keep them going. Now, however, the Thursday nights are almost as big as the Sundays, with our most recent one having three tables going (two 40K and one 28mm World War II skirmish) plus having another 3 or 4 spectators!

The Sundays are going great as well, with each one having a full complement of gamers and everyone having a good time.

I'd also like to take the opportunity to welcome the historical gamers to the club - guys like Vince and Craig are coming along with their armies and giving us fantasy/sci-fi gamers a taste of something a bit different. I had the good fortune of playing a game of Malifaux against Craig, and it was extremely entertaining, and a welcome change for me from the usual big unit company level gaming that is Warhammer.

I am very pleased to say that as well as our devoted Warhammer players (which after all, are the core and driving force that started the club in the first place!), that we have expanded to include Warhammer 40000, Warmachine, and also have Historical and World War II gamers. I would encourage any of you who are interested in a game you don't play to talk to the players on the Games Days - both Craig and Vince are very knowledgable and more than willing to explain the intriciacies of Napoleonics or Ancients, and all of our Fantasy or 40K players are also very approachable if you're keen on checking out a different system. Most gamers have extra armies that you can borrow for the day to take for a spin.

Also, for anyone interested in small scale World War II gaming, Toyworld in Masterton now stocks Battlefront products - this is for the Flames of War wargame, a New Zealand designed 1/100 scale game. They only have a small amount in stock, but can order in whatever you need.

Until next time, may all your Ld dice roll snake-eyes!

James.
