    We continue to look back at Art of War in Bristol with both round 3 fixtures here for your viewing pleasure! Both of us weary from the days play, as non-regular tournament goers 3 in a day is tiring lol.

    H-G takes on an Infernal Warrior player with a HUGE block of warriors and some big ol' merts to go with it - including the pain train. While I test my shooting prowess against an Ogre list that out-shoots me with his - count them - 19(!) Bombadiers. Oh and 3 giants and a massive unit of Bruisers. Ouch!

    Saurian Ancients vs Infernal Dwarves

    Highborn Elves vs Ogre Khans

  • Onto round 2 and while @PTG - Hyper-G is riding high (well middle-ish) with his round 1 win and now gets given an incredibly symmetrical OnG list, I am down the bottom of the draw with a big loss under my belt - getting a match up against a fiery ID list for my sins. So will Hyper-G continue his good run, and can I turn around my fortunes and keep the day alive? Find out with the videos below...

    Saurian Ancients vs Orcs & Goblins

    Highborn Elves vs Infernal Dwarves

  • Hey folks,

    So we finally get round to showing off our round 1 games from Bristol. I take on a really fun looking, double Hellmaw WDG list; while @PTG - Hyper-G takes on an aggro VC list controlled by a very good general in Barry Lynch. Possibly the only time on of us is on table 1 at an event, so the pressure is on him to uphold the high prestige that is the Proxy Table Gaming name!

    Saurian Ancients vs Vampire Covenant

    Highborn Elves vs Warriors of the Dark Gods

  • Hi guys,

    So its been a while since I've had some time to do blog stuff and so this comes a little bit later than i had hoped but the first in a series about the recent ART of War tournament in Bristol. Not only did we attend in good spirits, but we actually got invited to 'cover' the event by way of our channel. We would still do the Battle reports and tournament review as usual, but we would also be getting the opportunity to do a bit more to promote the event and to show how awesome going to events is for war gamers, and how fun it can be. With this in mind our vision for the tournament coverage was to provide:
    • List Reviews
    • Draw sneak peek
    • Table #1 Livestream
    • Short (& Friendly) Player Interviews
    • Bat Reps
    • Mid-Tournament (& Saturday evening shenanigans) Videos and Snippets
    We were very excited about this and want to share with you everything we managed to get up to. As you might expect, with playing in the tournament as well we had very little time to actually do the rest, but still managed a fair amount so hopefully we have done the tournament some sort of justice! Thanks once again to Callum (@'cm284') & Shane @The golden dwarf) for giving us the opportunity to help out, and for running a truly superb event. I don't think we've received any negative feedback on it and i know that everyone had a great time and especially commented on how good the atmosphere was which i think is a testament to them both! Great people, Nice prizes, and good times had by all - and 80 players, meaning it was officially the biggest singles tourney in the UK!

    Anyway, the main thing we wanted to get across to people was how easy going this tournament was - especially to new players, which we were this time last year. We attended simply as players last year and it was our first tournament. Not knowing what to expect, we turned up very anxious (and also excited), but this quickly changed and we had a great time. Big shout out to @Fthunder who was my first opponent back then, gave me a proper schooling in my first ever tournament game (20-0) but then sat with me and talked the game and some other tactics through, making me feel very welcome and not just upset that I couldn't hack it at tourneys. This I think helped me to just relax and play the rest of my games in the right spirit - and i think that was not a special case at this event, in either years. So yeah, good job in organising an event that is suitable for noobs (like we were last year), gamer's, average players and elite players alike.

    So, first up from our point of view were the list 'review' and revealing the draw to the public! Here are the videos for those of you that missed it...

    Apologies for the echo sound on this one, first time we have used skype so bare with us lol

    Plenty more to come from this event too, but we'll leave you with that for now! :thumbup: [Read More]
  • Hi guys,

    Carrying on our Quickstarter adventures and we have been given the task of fighting some battles as part of the QS Play testing league that has been set up. We have the wonderful privilege of fighting with all 8 armies that were selected, in some specific match-ups. We of course jumped at the chance for some more Quick-starter fun, as we had a blast last time and really enjoy the quirkyness and challenge of the types of battles that these encourage.

    So, we have 3 bat reps of battles we did privately and one Livestream battle on our friend @piteglios channel "The Veil of the Ages". All of the actual battles were done in under an hour and even the livestream was recorded in record time, showing that they are quick and easy to get your head around and play - especially if our feeble minds can get to grips with it haha. But most importantly, these are fun games that will really help to encourage new players into our wonderful game, so lets all support it as best we can.

    Anyway, too much cheese for my liking so lets get on with it shall we:

    Empire of Sonnstahl vs Warriors of the Dark Gods

    Kingdom of Equitaine vs Undying Dynasties (Livestream)

    Orcs & Goblins vs Saurian Ancients

    Sylvan Elves vs Dwarven Holds

  • We have finally arrived at the epic conclusion of our infamous Wooden Spoon Cup, and quite suitably, we have two fantastically weird looking armies to compete for the coveted title of "Best of the Worst". One of the originally tipped armies (Infernal Dwarves) against one that surprised us all in its glory (Undying Dynasties), both with units that have astounded us with units that just should not be good lol.

    If you want the joy and amazement of re-living the entire tournament from start to finish visit our thread HERE, but for those that have been with us from the start I will leave you in limbo for no longer. Nothing more to say here than thank you to everyone involved and that engaged us to help us create a good ol' fashioned bit of fun. Enjoy!

  • A special Bat rep here for all you UB fans! And if your are interested in the T9A Quickstarter then this might be a good one for ya! We get pitched against each other in T9A's first ever 2.0 Quickstarter Livestream, with Auxilary boys - The Askerlanders - versus a snippet from the up and coming newbs of T9A - The Daemon Legions.

    This is a project headed up by @DJWoodelf and looks to create a quick and easy version of the game we all know and love, in a manner that will attract newcomers to the hobby. If you haven't come across this by now, it's certainly worth a look as its a great way to get new friends to playing the game. Simplified rules, short playtime, pre-made armies, fun times! There is even an extended version soon to come out which will allow you to pick your own army lists and get a bit more advanced with it once you've got to grips with it all.

    If nothing else, it is a bit of ol' fashioned fun - and that is what we do best! Big shout out to @piteglio for getting in touch with us about this and, more importantly, hosting the Livestream to keep us in check! And apologies for butchering the pronunciation of your name - you do a whole show in our language and we can't even pronounce your name! Italian lessons for us have been booked...

    Anyway, here is the bat rep of the battle.

    If you want to see the whole livestream for more detail and to get absorbed in the fun, the link is here:

    And if this is right up your street make sure to visit the YouTube channel Veil of the Ages as there is a hell of a lot more where that came from (and there will be from us soon too - #SpoilerAlert)... [Read More]
  • And we have another case of the David vs Goliath / Underdog vs Favourite / Big Man vs Little Man syndrome, in our next Semi-Final.

    In the 'Golaith' corner, we have the Infernal Dwarves. They took out the tournament favourites (Orges) in round 1, courtesy of the BSB and Giant combo, back up with some surprising support from and Orc slave unit. Next up they dealt with the Highborns (and that wonderful eagle deathtrap of a unit) quite efficiently to take their place in the semis.

    In the "I've got some major anger issues" Little-man syndrome corner, we have the Kingdom of Equitaine and their peasant heavy list. The crown of the Wizard King BSB on pegasus has made quite a name for himself thus far, making a serious case for Mage of the Tournament! In their first game, they disposed of the Warriors of the Dark gods, dealing with everything apart from the devastating lord on behemoth to take home the victory. Then, in another shock victory against the Sylvan Elves, they showed their prowess in the shooting department with the crossbows and light cavalry running riot on the low body count of the SE - despite a late surge from the Wild Huntsman and characters.

    We already know that it will be the Undying Dynasties in the FInal with @Squirrelloid at the helm (metophorically speeaking), but who will be there to face them? The Peasants or the flaming stunties? Let's watch...

  • Well well well! Here we are with the first of our semi-finals in the Wooden Spoon Cup...

    We see a skink deathsar army (yes you heard right!) vs a Cavalry Heavy Undying List. Both these lists involved a mass unit of either skinks or Skeleton Cavalry which have been surprisingly useful in the previous battles. Add into the mix some Ramphodons and some Cataphracts and we've got a battle!

    Up to now Saurians have been the favourites in their previous too and have shown why with some pretty comfortable wins. They, again, go into this one as favourite, but can they deliver?

    Meanwhile, the Undying Dynasties have been one of the shock armies so far, with wins against the Dwarves and the closest thing we had to a gun-line; and scraping a win against a Dread Elf army with some pretty handy cavalry themselves. So while they will take the role of underdog once again, don't write these guys off just yet!

    Anyway, enough of my talking, lets get to it shall we!
