They'd fit right in! Plus they're quite ambiguous, unclear at the start which 'side' they'd be on. Do bring them.

Unfortunately it looks like I won't have the barbarian warband finished that I'd hoped to bring for this...

However, I will have a small half-orc warband lead by a scheming hobgoblin (with possibly a kobold or a bugbear lackey as well) if you think that would fit in? I also have a friend who is interested in bringing a few ogres to lend some muscle to either side if that's okay too?

Out of interest, what size forces did you invision people bringing, roughly? Is this a smaller warband/skirmish thing, or a bigger kind of game?

Bad news (for me, anyway)... turns out I won't be able to go to this after all - ironically, having scheduled a "Journey to the East" game set in the steppes, I will instead be heading out on a journey to the steppes of Mongolia myself and flying out on the 31st... Hope you all have fun, I am gutted to miss it.

Obviously if somebody else wants to pick up the game, go for it. I'm sorry to people who've started work only to find out I won't be able to run this after all - I just found out my travel dates today, until now I had been pretty sure I was going to get up to Newark.

Sorry to hear, as I'd just come down from the attic with a dozen horse-nomads which would have required re-basing ready for your skirmish, such is life. :cry:

Shame, as I'm sure this would have been a nice scenario to have seen played; any 'willing' volunteers ready to step up to the mark? to keep this running.

In hope

Well I've got a 24 strong unit of Throgg's Despoiling Hobgoblins nearly painted and a load of other stuff primed so I'm happy to coordinate.

Sorry to hear you can't make it Lenihan but I bet Mongolia will be very interesting to see - just watch out for the Outer Mongolian Deathworms, which incidentally inspired me to include some Inner Cathayan Necro-grubs!

Did you have much in the way of a scenario in mind already? If not (and if folk are up for it) let me know what you're planning to bring and I'll see about cooking something up to balance out whatever forces will be present.

In fact it'd be useful to know who is joining in anyway as I'm not sure who has signed up to this game so far.

Well done Thantsants,

Give me a volunteer, rather than a pressed man any day of the week. I wasn't actually planning on playing - rather providing suitable figures, so Lenihan could develop his ideas and have alternatives, if, things looked to be one sided, depending upon what people turned up with. Unless, of course a suitable opportunity arises in my planned diary for the weekend! :D

I'll PM you with a list of stuff, I think you might like.

Cheers Paul - I reckon the pressed men are best left in the Warhammer Ahoy game ;)

I'm sure it'll all come in handy, especially the horsemen - you are of course most welcome to join the game any time.

I'll get a list of what I'm bringing up at some point as well.

Wish I could be there with my Cathayans but I am big time double booked and there's no wriggling free. Have a good time (again) without me, you lucky so and so's.

That's a shame Padre - I was wondering whether you were able to make it this year.

We'll have to catch up some other time.

Bump - so is anyone else down for playing this game on the Saturday?
