Wolsung Boot Camp Live Blog – Friday

Supported by (Turn Off)

We're kicking off the Wolsung Boot Camp alongside Micro Art Studio today as our intrepid Steampunk fans get stuck into their hobby and start building their factions to be ready for skirmishes over the days to come.

Follow us throughout the weekend and comment on the Live Blog posts every day as we'll pick a winner from the comments of each day's blog and announce the winners on a future Weekender which airs on Saturday mornings.

Make sure to stick with us for all the awesomeness of the Boot Camp and learn more about the world of Wolsung too.

Wolsung Boot Camp Bundles & Deal

It's going to be quite the weekend so stay tuned!

Which of the factions has taken your fancy?

Checking Out The BoW Board Game Library

44 Comments

Nick and Sean, two of the Boot Campers, are already checking out our library of board games here at Beasts of War before they even get to building...maybe it's too good of a distraction?

There's always something to be said for a bit of multitasking though. Maybe the guys can do some painting and hobby WHILE they play board games?

What Goodies Did The Boot Campers Get?

54 Comments

It's time for us to take a look at just what the Boot Campers got when they arrived here to delve into the world of Wolsung.

We break open one of their sets belonging to Marcus and take a closer look at the goodies inside. Remember you can get your own Wolsung goodies by checking out the Deals & Sales they have on offer right now.

Bootcamp Boxes Well Raided!

29 Comments

The beautifully collated Bootcamp Boxes are all open, hobbying is underway and we're already seeing full Starter Sets primed and paints starting to go down.

As ever the atmosphere from having lots of people enjoying their hobby time together is absolutely wonderful and there's a real happy buzz in the studio.

Bootcamp Boxes Well Raided!

Fortune Teller Scenario

31 Comments

One of my favourite parts of Wolsung is the variety of narrative scenarios and how encouraged you are to have three fast-paced rounds of action where it's not all about gunning down your foe.

In this scenario, the Fortune Teller acts as a way to dispense Fortune Cards straight from the deck to support your heroes but they also act as Victory Points at the end of the game.

First Demo Game Thoughts On The Alven Yard

39 Comments

We stop in to find out some first thoughts about The Alven Yard from the world of Wolsung after a demo game played out.

These fellows are new to the world of Wolsung and so it will be good to see how they come together as a hobby project and indeed how they play on the tabletop too!

Competition Is Getting Fierce

23 Comments

Warzan and Redben are readying to duke it out in Twilight Struggle.

Liam marks a score onto the board after a killer parkour diving kill!

Stuart also completes a challenge by winning a challenge with 4 or more cards, against his with Helena no less!

And the gang are getting into some NSFW action with Joking Hazard!

Competition Is Getting Fierce

Get Thee On The Dishes Justin!

38 Comments

We knew that Justin's real calling wasn't truly as a presenter or unboxer extraordinaire but instead as a pot washer and dish mopper!

...and as for those biscuit thieves, well the less said the better we reckon.

The First Spot Prize CLAIMED!

32 Comments

Liam has managed to get his hands on the first spot prize of the day as he scores three challenges in a single game which is quite the feat.

We also just love giving things away to you lovely people so it felt good to get some Wolsung games off to a great start!

Said it once but I’ll say it again – had this been in Australia I’d have been all over it like a rash.

I really have enjoyed watching all the previous Let’s Plays on BoW. So I expect to really enjoy all of the coverage this weekend.

I keep coming back around to Wolsung, would love to get a chance to play it but it’s not available at any shops in town, which makes it hard to build a scene. I’ll be watching the boot camp closely to see if it’s one I think i can build a player base for (wouldn’t hurt if I won a 2 player bundle to run demos with either)

Another weekend for me to sit at home seething with envy and the fun being had over in BoW central… one day work diary, family plans and budget will align!

Enjoy the weekend folks, so we can vicariously!

Looking forward to seeing what gets covered this weekend. I like the concept behind the game, but it doesn’t seem like anyone local knows anything about it.
