Main Hall Clashes

Please note on the following Tuesdays, the Main Hall is booked for Darts Cup Matches.

These are Annual bookings that predate the existence of BRGA.
Also these nights raise much larger revenues for the Newtown than our little club.

However, they have agreed that we can pay half the usual £40 hall fee for the main hall, or nothing if we are in the small hall.

The Unavailable Dates are:

14th June – we can either have the small room 14/6, or the Main hall either Monday 13th or Wednesday 15th
21st June – we can either have the small room 21/6, or the Main Hall 20th
16th August – Newtown can only offer the small room as both Monday 15th and Wednesday 17th August are booked
30th August – We can either have the small room 30/8, or the Main hall Monday 29th

Laser cutting

I found out Jim can get access to a laser cutter so I fancied making a little something a bit eldar like and more importantly blocks line of sight.
It is a very simple idea this one and hope it works out.
Should stand around 208 mm high.

Might try casting some gems to put on there as well but have to see how big it comes out first 🙂

If other people have ideas for stuff then please post here and I will see what I can come up with 🙂

And a big thanks to Jim

Fliers and movement.

So last night we had a situation in a game where a player didn’t move his flier, he did not also declare that it was hovering.

The question is, Is that flier wrecked?

The wording says a zooming flier may not voluntarily move less than 18 inches otherwise it is wrecked.

The general opinion is that yes, if dice had been rolled in the next phase, and your opponent notices that you haven’t moved your zooming flier, or declared it is hovering (if it has that ability) then it is wrecked.

But other opinions would be great, as many different people may read the rules and interpret it differently.

Regards to the extra dice in the x wing tournament.

Im really not keen on this idea as it will seriously unbalance the dice phases of the game. Some ships pump out an obscene amount of attack dice already at range one and its easy enough for them to do it. On the flip side with the evade dice some ships are  ridiculously hard to hit as it is. You throw in tokens and re-rolls in.I feel this is not required as the game already has mechanics that can be abused to a certain extent. it doesn’t need another.

B.R.G.A. AGM 3rd May 2016, Newtown Sports & Social CLub

Humble apologies B.R.G.A.Ns, but due to INCREDIBLE work pressures I have been unable to compile our AGM yet.
It should really have happened End March 2016. (BTW, guess where I am? STILL at work).

I have therefore had to set the AGM to 03/May/16, to give us time to get the Open Day 30/04/16 out of the way first.

Salute!

Salute is a one day convention at the ExCeL Centre in London, put on by South London Warlords. This year’s salute is on Saturday April 16th.

What’s it all about?

It’s basically nerdvana. It’s not dedicated to any one miniature game or boardgame. There’s demos for all the new hotness and traders of all sizes; from one man bands to the likes of Wayland Games (at least you don’t have to wait for them to deliver!). Forgeworld had a big stand last year with a queue around the venue. A lot of the traders will do show discounts/specials, if you are looking for something in particular.

If you don’t want to empty your wallet, you can spend the entire day playing games. Last year Beasts of War brought over a massive self made Star Wars game depicting the assault on Hoth. You could dive in, rules and minis provided and just crack on as part of the or the .

Tickets are only £12, although obviously you need to get yourself up there and back. There are a few people that have already planned to go or bought tickets.

Tickets can be bought from their website or via their page.

I will probably be getting the train up there, if a few of us want to catch the same train.

Cheers,

Adam.

corsairs

well time for some corsairs at long last.
been a long time but got round to a design and Technic that lets me kind of mass produce the main parts i need to do.

first up we got the wing designs, there has been a progression as i learn more things and i now have a flat top wings design that allows me to use a open mold and this speeds things up a lot more and less chance of air bubbles.
just port it in and scrape the excess resin off the top to make it flat.

next up we have some images of the test corsair. i have gone for the multi-wings as i was inspired by someones wonderful conversion i saw in YouTube.
the head is from a dark eldar jetbike and the back is a modified dark eldar warrior heavy weapon pack.

anyway i hope you enjoy this little preview. still lots of stuff to do like stripping all the old plastic mins.
