The next league - 40k Escalation!

The Warhammer Fantasy Escalation League is entering it's final few rounds, so I'm planning ahead and looking for players that are interested in doing a 40k league starting in August/September.

This would be a great chance to get up to speed on 7th Edition or build up a new force over the course of 4-5 months.

Check out the announcement and sign up in the forums!

A new space fleet game is coming...

Do you miss Battlefleet Gothic?   If so, this tidbit should be interesting, 'Dropfleet' is coming!

Andy Chambers, original designer of BFG, is teaming up with Hawk Wargames to bring a fleet game in the Dropzone universe.  Dropzone was highly successful and everything I've read about the game and models is full of praise.  This new game bears watching, and hopefully there will be a Kickstarter coming soon.

Mordheim is ON...

Well it looks like this Mordheim campaign is going to happen!

Thanks to forum member ScottyB for setting us on the right path with some tested houserules and volunteering to help co-ordinate this.

So far we have four confirmed players, and we can take up to eight without issue.  Get in to the forum and sign up !

The next campaign: Mordheim!

With the Fantasy Battle escalation league off and running, I'd like to announce the next potential WarPegs league:

If you haven't played it before, Mordheim is a skirmish game based in the WHFB world that depicts small warbands fighting over shards of Warpstone in the ruined city of Mordheim.  The game includes a system to link together individual battles into a campaign that chronicles the rising of heroes as they gain power and wealth.  It's a ton of fun and a great alternative for players that want a skirmish fantasy game with a Warhammer flavour.

If you are interested, check it out in the forums.

Tabletop day

Thanks to Garth at Maxx Collectibles for hosting us once again for Skirmish wargaming.  I managed to get in games of Kill Team and Malifaux, and got my interest in playing Mordheim piqued again.

Thanks to the Jim-Con team for coming out and snapping a few photos as well.  Courtesy of the Jim-Con Facebook page:

So what's next?  The Warhammer Escalation League is entering round two, and there is some talk about a standing Mordheim campaign kicking off.  So hit the forums and let us know what you are playing or join up to an existing league or group!

Tabletop Day 2014

In support for Tabletop Day 2014, WarPegs and Maxx Collectibles are working together to run another Kill Team day at the Store on April 5th. The last day was quite successful, and this is another chance to come out, meet
some other players and get in a game or three.

Games will run from 1pm until 5pm but you are always welcome to come anytime during store hours. Maxx has several tables available, and the large tables will easily host two or three sets of players for a skirmish ruleset like Kill Team. As always, there is plenty of free parking.

Some come out, support the Tabletop Gaming Community and have a good time!  If you have any questions or suggestions, just hop over to the forums!

Astra Militarum Leaks

So what is Astra Militarum?  It's a copyrightable name for Imperial Guard, and here they come!

There is a separate codex coming for Militarum Tempestus, aka Stormtroopers as well, and there are more leaks in this White Dwarf page.

Escalation League - Last chance to sign up!

This week is the last week to sign up for the WarPegs WHFB escalation league.

I'd like to see at least one more player sign up so we can have an even number of players.  This league will run for 4 months or so with two games per month and lists escalating from 500 points to 1,800 points or more depending on the votes of the players.

Full details are in the forums RIGHT HERE.

League details posted...

The rules for 500pt lists have been posted for the escalation league, along with the narrative starting point and first scenario.  We have players bringing out Ogre Kingdoms, Beastmen, Dwarfs and Wood Elves so far, so there is a nice mix of armies.

Check for all the details in the forums!

Ideally, I would like to find at least two more players, so if you have a small WHFB force you want to grow, or are a newer player looking to get more familiar with the rules it's a great opportunity to jump in!

Out of nowhere - Imperial Knights!

Say what you will about Games Workshop's policies, pricing and practices, they make stunning models:

Check out the forums for further details about these amazing models and how to use them in your 40k army!

Malifaux at Maxx

Looks like a regular group of Malifaux gamers is scheduling games at Maxx from 1-4 on Saturdays.  For Fantasy Skirmish, it seems to be a strong contender compared to Hordes, and the unique card-based system is certainly interesting.

Check it out if you are interested!

Any WHFB Dwarf players in town?

If you love the stunties, it looks like February will be an expensive month for you.  Check out the leaked partial cover of the next White Dwarf:

Wood Elves and Brettonians are the last army books to be updated for this edition now.

Sci-Fi Skirmish Day is on, and scheduled for February 15th at Maxx Collectibles.  Details are in the Forum post including list-building rules for Kill Team and some advice on Infinity list building thanks to Greg aka forum member 'guitargeek'.

Whether you want to join a game, or just come by and watch, this is a great chance to meet some other Winnipeg gamers and check out the tables at Maxx if you haven't already.  Hope to see you there!

Games Workshop closed this weekend

As a reminder, if you are looking for table space for a game this weekend, Games Workshop on Meadowwood is closed until the 22nd.

If you need space, Maxx has two 4' x 8' tables and a 4' x 4' table with ample terrain available, and is open Saturday and Sunday.  Tables use is free of charge and they have lots of parking.

Check it out if you haven't been in for a game yet!

Kill Teams intro games - February 15th at Maxx

Long time, no post.

I'm going to be trying to redirect the purpose of this blog a bit.  Instead of simply rehashing rumours from various other sites, I'm going to make an effort to focus on local events and items of note for the community here in Winnipeg.

As such, on the heels of the very successful Infinity intro day organized by Greg last weekend, I'm going to try and set up a day to run 40k Kill Team at Maxx, and I'm targeting the 15th of February at this time depending on table availability.

Kill Team is a skirmish version of Warhammer 40k with 200 point lists.  It plays fast, has a lighter feel to it than full on 40k, but retains all the flavour.  Check the forums shortly for a more in-depth post and date confirmations.
