Warmachine Journeyman League

So Chris Otton is running A Warmahordes League next fortnight....

Kapiti Journeyman League

The Journeyman league is a slow grow league aimed at new players to Privateer Press’ Warmachine and Hordes games. Each week of the league you will grow your force from a small battlebox up to a full 35 point army, gaining league points for painting and playing games along the way. As your league point total grows, you’ll be awarded “rank” patches to be stuck on to your mini case to keep track of how you’re progressing. 

How: The club will buy the league patches and charge $5 for each participant to cover this. Please let me know by Sunday 20th July if you are keen to join, we need a minimum of 8 players to make the league work :) Players who joined the last league are more than welcome to play again.

When:The league will start on Thursday 7th August at 7:30 and will run every second week for 6 league sessions. At the end of the league, there will be a one day 35 point tournament organised for you to get your armies pitted against each other for real!

What: The points levels for each session are:
07/08/14 – Battlebox
21/08/14 – 15 points
04/09/14 – 25 points
18/09/2014 – 25 points (caster swap allowed)
02/10/2014 – 35 points (use either caster)
16/10/2014 – 35 points (no restrictions)

A ‘battlebox’ game uses only the models from a Warmachine or Hordes starter set (usually around $50-$60NZ each). There is a handy guide to building your lists linked to the kapiti club facebook page or drop me a line at if you need a copy. You will need to buy your own models for this!

Do you want to know more?

Models can be bought:
Locally: from The Hobby Stop in Kilbirnie 04 891 0771
Overseas: , and many others!

SAGA Demonstration games this Thursday

SAGA Demos at KWC

3 SAGA players will be coming down to KWC fram 7.30 on Thursday 17 June 2014 for a demo of Gripping Beast's SAGA Games

Gripping Beast's Dark Ages miniatures skirmish. Each side has between 20 and 70 miniatures, organised into groups of 4-12 warriors. Miniatures are classed as Hearthguard, Warriors, or Levy, and an army comprises of 6 points of units (1 point = 4 Hearthguard, 8 Warriors, or 12 Levy).

Each faction - Anglo-Danish, Viking, Welsh, Norman - has its own battle board of command options, which are selected depending on the roll of your Saga Dice. Saga Dice have special icons and give your command choices for the turn.

Combat and movement are simple and based on six-sided dice rolls, the real challenge is to use the options from your battle board as effectively as possible. The core game comes with a battle board for the four main factions, with future battle board releases intended to cover other armies and periods.

The first supplement for the game, entitled 'Northern Fury' was released in Spring 2012. It is 22 pages, and contains details and rules for four more factions (Anglo-Saxons, Bretons, Jomsvikings and Scots), one scenario and four separate faction boards; the next was "The Raven's Shadow" with 28 pages - Franks, Irish, Norse Gael & Strathclyde Welsh.

Come on down and check it out on Thursday
