Fellow Surrey Spartan and good friend of mine Barry (of Roll Better Podcast fame) turn another year older – only his 27th, I’m assured by ‘sources’ from said podcast – and since he, like many of my gaming club, are keen Guildball players local pundit John Parish (also of Roll Better fame) kindly organised a snake draft as part of his celebration.
Time for a lighter blog entry this week – as predicted, after my Drop Fleet Commander game on Wednesday evening my enjoyment and excitement for the game returned. The initial rekindling of my enthusiasm for the game came after flat-mate Matt took his UCM to table against PHR player Laurence from our group. The brief after-action report I got from Matt energised me for a game of my own, so I got in touch with Laurence and arranged one!
So the time has finally come! Pairings are as below, and the lists are also her. Use CTRL+F and search a players name to go through them, we’re not getting individual blog posts because I have to submit a novel to publishers today so don’t have time for it.
Felix Newman vs John Parish
Michael Measures vs Matthew Hobbit Doran
David Johnson vs Jon Thunder Chadrock
Michael Blackman vs Marcos Balsamico
Paul Ellison vs Steve Walters
James Abbott vs John Laffan
Go, go, power gamers!
I’ve chosen a heavy metal theme because when I eventually finish converting up my chariots and cavalry they’ll have a Mad Max theme going on, based of all the wonderful things from that full and thought provoking film series. And also it gives them a bad ass element that Undying Dynasties channel well. Metal and Undeath have that sort of timeless bond that is so rarely found in fiction. It makes both aesthetic and thematic sense while also appealing to my personal sense of awesome. Whether or not I can keep it up we’ll see, but I have plenty of source material.
