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!

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!

Looking Back: The First Event

Our first organised event was a Warhammer 40,000 narrative event that revolved around Red Steel Ridge. Our very own Joseph Cowlishaw wrote a full back story with narrative branches for each round of the event. There was a fantastic mix of armies on display and a great turnout from our members.

As you can see from the pictures, a good time was had by all!

Looking Back: Our First Day

On September 8th 2012, Worthy Gaming opened in Preston. Red Steel – as a club – formally started then. As an idea, the essence of what we became started a few months earlier. We were and still are a predominantly Warhammer 40,000  based club, and as such our founding came out of wanting somewhere more than our local Games Workshop store.

The story is repeated all over the country, and probably the world; veteran gamers who felt alienated by strict rules, limited gaming/painting space availability and the feeling of apathy from the company towards the people whose very patronage was responsible for their profits. This isn’t an anti-GW rant, I’m just setting the scene. We wanted our own place, and the news that a new wargaming shop was to open was a fantastic opportunity.

So, on that Saturday Worthy Gaming opened its doors to the public. A long hard day of painting, modelling and gaming was ahead of us. For a lot of us it was also our first exposure to new games such as Warmachine/Hordes, Infinity and Dark Age. In addition this, we had David from Hawk Wargames to run demos of his new game – Dropzone Commander. Also covering the opening was Joey Berry. Many games of DZC were played, alongside some Warhammer Fantasy and 40,000 on freshly pained tables.

The club also took on many new members that day. We had a dedicated place that was open late, and had the facilities that we wanted – we’d found our new home.

Or so we thought.
