|"WAAAAARGH Me Harties"|
Monday, 21 July 2014
Admittedly, I have still had my weekly RPG sessions, but little else has happened. I didn't even take part in the Apocalypse rematch the others arranged: having to cancel at short notice, I missed the return bout of Orks Vs Non-Orks.
However, to show some change of tone and give you all some new Quail rambles, here are some happy packages I received recently that indicate some improvement in my fortunes

|The secret doorway to Glasweigan nerdity|
Stuart found himself with some time free - his family are away from the house so he asked if we could meet up for some sort of card or board game. I suggested introducing him to Dreadball and we met at in the center of town at Geek Retreat.
Geek Retreat is a relatively modern part of Glasgow's nerd culture and, on the outside, looks rather unimpressive. Especially when we already have so many comic book shops (three around the city centre alone) you may wonder quite what the point of another one is. But then you go in the door, down the stairs and discover.....
|Maybe I should have a "spot the nerd reference" game for this photo|
Anyway, into this building regular 40K opponent Stuart pulled up a chair, bought me a rocky road and learned the futuristic sports game.

|Deployment on Charles' game table: clear hint the game takes place in Britain by the presence of a mug.|
As previously noted I started with fantasy games - Man O' War and Warhammer Fantasy - before drifting into 40K. I haven't owned a core book to WFB since 4th ed, but part of this blog was about me trying to start Fantasy again and assemble a wee Chaos Dwarf army.
The paucity of posts will betray my Chaos Dwarfs aren't yet ready to see the table, but frequent game opponent and RPG chum Charles has two armies so offered me the chance of a wee demo game on Sunday which I took him up on. I could take his Tomb Kings army, he'd use his new High Elves and I could learn the rules by playing.
