About Me

My photo
I'm a bit of a born-again wargamer! I played many of the Games Workshop games when I was in my teens and early twenties, but left the hobby behind when I went to University. Over the last few years I have gradually got back into it and am literally having a ball! I'll play pretty much anything now, ranging from ancient historical to the far future! I think that I get more out of the painting side of things than actually playing, but that might just be because I get more opportunity. Hence the title...this blog is all about the colour of war!!

First look at a tournament

Yesterday saw a Malifaux tournament happen in Glasgow and I managed to go down and watch. The organisers also had a second room for demos and friendly games which was cool. So I took my Perdita and Zoraida crews with the intention of trying Zoraida out. As it happened I ended up playing Zoraida against Perdita, which was nice to see all my models on the table. But it also meant I learnt how damned hard Perdita is to play against! The highlight, though, had to be Zoraida casting Obey on Papa Loco who charged Santiago and flipped the red joker for damage. The resulting explosion took them both out in one cataclysmic BOOM! :)

The real draw was the tournament, of course. I've never taken part in a tournament, but I think it would be an interesting experience, so I wanted to take a look and see what if was like. I watched most of one game where the Dreamer tore up a Lilith crew and the quality of play was a cut above. Okay...the Dreamer player was the #1 ranked player in the UK! So, I'm intrigued enough to want to enter the next one if I can make it. Just need to build up a few more options for one of my crews.

Apologies for no pictures, but it was such a busy day!
