*** Friday Night Fights is LIVE ***

Postby Memento » Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:39 am

After some back and forth with Store Owner Matt, I'm pleased to announce that the Bunker will be staying opening late on Friday evenings for gaming.

This would be a great opportunity for us to revisit our policy on non-40k games here at the club. At the moment, we strongly identify as a 40k club with most of our members gravitating or focusing solely on the most recent edition of the rules. But there have been inquiries by more than a handful of members about branching out into other GW games. We've been strict about 40k-only Sundays because the club's passion for the game and the hobby is something we've felt sets us apart and makes us unique.

But games are fun and sometimes it can be good to take a break or have a bit of a change. And Fridays are a perfect way for us to have a bit of both!

I'm waiting to hear from the Bunker on an official start date for when they'll be open for Friday night business. I expect it to happen in the next couple of weeks. But for the moment I'll be rearranging the Games This Week subforum to include Fridays. Feel free to post about anything you might be interested in playing, though we ask that they be wargaming or GW related.

Possible. or shadespire, or necromunda, or AOS, or even more 40k.

I know I'd love to kick up some more Necromunda/Newcromunda/Shadow War type stuff. Playing a full 40k game is something i'm rarely up for on a weeknight, but some nice little skirmish stuff, especially when I don't have to get up to go to work the next day at 5AM? Sounds great to me, I'll probably be there every day that my fiance's got a night shift.
Game Preferences:
A model may assault upper levels of terrain if they charge far enough to climb them

I have a box and a team, and obviously could semi proxy some others (ogres+snots, orks, elves)

It is a very fun game but - keep in mind you have to kind of be in the "watching football" mood because it is very very random, lol.

I may in the future be interested in some AoS because i like some of the models and if there is an interest would probably begin to collect a army of them, or shadespire maybe just to start small

Bloodbowl is awesome. Pure comedy: Scott is spot on, the game swings drastically on single die rolls. you have to get into an 'I don't care if I lose because when I do, I'm gonna lose hilariously' mindset. You can play well and try to win, but it's not uncommon for even the best tactics to fall apart on a couple botched rolls. I have five teams (orks, humans, dwarves, undead, amazons), I'd love to get some games in sometime.

AoS is also awesome, it's like a paired down 40k and the models are incredible. I've got a whole pile of armies for that too so if people are interested let me know and we can talk about it.

I would love to do AoS on Fridays. Already have a decent model count for it.
