Army Of The Month – January 2016

Edit – yes I know it’s 2016 – it’s going to take a while to get used to it!

 

To celebrate the start of our 2016 Warhammer 40,000 builder league, this month we’ve got two armies for your perusal – the joint first place winners from our 2015 league.

These two armies started off very close on points are provided a nail-biting finish – coming joint 1st on points. Both armies were built up over 6 months, adding points every month. These events are a great way to get a good-sized army built and painted in manageable chunks.

If you’d like to give it a try, come on down!

Looking Back: Red Steel Daemon 2014

In December 2014 we saw the highest quality of painting we’ve seen so far (just look at those Harlequins!). The standards were very high in all categories, especially the vehicles. We hope that this year’s competition, being held at Harlequin’s next week, will be even better!

Red Steel Daemon 2015

This Saturday was our 2015 painting competition – the Steel Daemon!

Despite the terrible weather we had a decent turn out and the standards were high throughout. We also had a pleasant surprise with our friends Da Cella Boyz turning up and bringing their A-game to boot!

Entries were from multiple systems – Warhammer 40,000, Age Of Sigmar, Warmachine, Infinity and Guild Ball among others – which is always nice to see.

So here are some pictures of the entries and the winners.

We hope everyone had a good time – we’re already planning some things for next year’s competition!

Looking Back: Red Steel Daemon 2013

While actually taking place in January 2014 (ahem) our “2013” Red Steel Daemon painting competition was once again a fantastic showcase of what our talented members can do!

It also shows that rarest of things: a fully painted miniature from our club Treasurer, Krist!

Looking Back: Warmachine/Hordes Tournament

Worthy Gaming played host to a Warmachine/Hordes tournament in February 2013. This was the first exposure to the game in a competitive environment, and it proved to be a very steep learning curve!

The game isn’t played much these days, but we still do have members looking for games!

Looking Back: Red Steel Daemon 2012

December 2012 brought about the first of our Steel Daemon painting competitions. We had far more entrants than we could have ever imagined for our first one and from this auspicious start we have gone from strength to strength and the quality of our entrants in our next competitions has only gotten better!
