This week saw a trip to the hallowed city of Nottingham for another 6InchMove jolly. Attending were myself, Gribblin and a guest gamer.
Gribblin’s 6000 points of Tyranids faced the combined might of a 3000 point Space Marine force entrenched in a ruined city. The Tyranids arrived in waves in an attempt to balance their massive numerical superiorty.
By closing time we had played six turns, eaten fat bloke burgers, had a drink in the bar, toured the miniatures hall and checked out the shop.
Who won? I dunno, the game could have gone on for another six hours. We didn’t really care too much as it had been a good chance to chuck some dice about and indulge in some gaming goodness!
For the second year running we managed a new years trip to the Sheriff’s very own Nottingham HQ. The itenerary was standard except this year we didn’t bring hordes of miniatures to benefit from the amazing gaming tables available.
Otherwise it was a visit to museum, a general roam around the gaming hall to see what people are up to, then off to Bugman’s Bar for some awesome burgers and a few games of Death Angel.
The trip was rounded off by a short hop cross city to Maelstrom Games, a place with good potential. If I lived closer I’d probably be gaming there every week!
We at 6 Inch Move would like to wish all of our reader (yes the singular was intentional) a very happy Easter, whether you are Christian, agnostic, Pastafarian or even a devotee of the Imperial Cult. While this will mean a break from work for many of us I’d like you all to spare a thought for the Easter Bunny, torn away from his family and forced to distribute eggs to various kids while braving the Chav filled streets of our respective countries.
Your favourite blogging team (yes us) will be out and about over this period with the entire content generating machine appearing at the northern nerd-mecca that is Warhammer World Easter Monday.
If you see a bunch of late-twenties/early-thirties slim and attractive males, that won’t be us. But if you hear all kinds of geek-tastic comments and generally derisive chatter from people that clearly don’t fit in with the Skaven like teeming hordes of pre-teens you have likely found us. We will also have a table full of Fat Bloke burgers so watch out for that clue.We will no doubt be counting the number of Blood Angels defectees also.
Whether we will be availing ourselves of the opportunity to grab a gaming table and indulge is yet to be decided. If you’re not scared of going up to strangers then you can try to find us out.
