Welcome to The Weekender where we’ve got some great stuff lined up for you. Lloyd is back and he’s raring to go and find out what’s happening in the world of wargaming.
Catch Infinity Week & The Team Yankee: Leopard Launch Blog
First up we’d love to highlight two big things. Firstly we ran Infinity: Operation Red Veil Week which was brilliant and this Saturday and Sunday will feature the Team Yankee: Leopard Launch Blog from Battlefront.
There’s some fantastic stuff to watch so get stuck in.
Next up we’re going to be getting stuck into the Competition Winners where we find out who won the Rory’s Story Cube competition with their stories…
xaussienannh: In the land of amoeba I had been sent to deal with the evil crab in the ghastly cave of doom, only to find the rain had shorted out my laser pistol (its energy meter, zeroed, sigh), It was a bitter pill to swallow. My plans in ruins, I decided the best action was to rethink my endeavours over a nice boiled egg for afternoon tea need to break a door down sonny. love her)
fireblarney: His tablet shaped ship out of fuel and finding himself stranded on a rocky coastline the microscopic alien organism searched desperately for a host body to protect himself from the toxic atmosphere. As luck would have it he found protection in the hard shelled body of a nearby crab. As the rain came pouring down from the sky he steered his newly acquired and mutating body into a nearby cave, spinning himself a chitinous egg to complete the process. Emerging he began the construction of a simple beam pistol while chuckling to himself, “Let the humans’ come with their axes, I’ll be ready for them”
badula: Once upon a time a Protoplasmic traveller crashed in Antarctica he had to build an igloo to find shelter from the harsh environment then he tried to boil an egg with his microwave gun but the temperature was too low luckily he had an emergency morphing pill so he morphed into an antarctic king Crab and lived happily ever after
…and the grand winner of The Army Painter competition to name the new paint.
