Pilgrymmage

Wow. What a trip. 

I just got back from Nottingham and a Pilgrym event that can only be described as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 
Formulating any coherent account, apart from superlative ridden tirades about how awesome everyone who contributed to this is, is completely beyond me at this time. In other words you'll have to wait for a true recap.




I can say that Lazaros and his cronies did rather well - as a matter of fact he managed to abscond with the pivotal Pilgrim. Not only did that grant me the "victory" (though I think everyone who played were winners) but as a price I recieved a rather nice gift...



Thank you John, Migs and Pete for making this happen.

    1. It was so much fun - both during the game which ran smoother than anticipated, but perhaps especially just hanging out with everybody.

    1. More to come - at least on Ironsleet. My phone unfortunately ran of of batteries so I don't have that many photos of the event...

  5. O wow! Those photos look so engrossing. Dreary and thematic - would love to see this type of detail in person.

    Congrats on the JB artwork! Looks like a lovely piece and one for the hobby room walls to inspire future works eh?

  6. It was such a fantastic experience, it is hard to describe! It was awesome to finally meet you, see some of your models in person, and just talk! As for Inquisitor Lazaros, just know that the headless Roland is on his trail, with the support of the Ordo Machinum...

    1. It really was fantabulous. Looking forward to face off against Lazaros pursuers.

  7. The kill count was in the end rather low, considering the sheer amount of pilgryms that were there. Well, if you dont cont some Marines going totally nuts :D

    What a day and what a game! But rhe best part were you guys!

    1. The scene was quite serene, only interrupted by a few acts of random violence. Felt kinda fitting in a way - the pilgrims going about their business. Loved the faceoff between Lazaros and the milkmaiden.

  8. What game do you play with this and how do you make rules for the made up characters you made?

    2. Exactly - necromunda rules with some modifications. We kept it pretty simple as there were so many models on the board.

    4. It was Necro Community Edition but with more 40k thrown in because of the scale of the game. Also used a random turn order, so that the 11 players wouldnt get bored waiting for their go. Plus made stuff up as it seemed appropriate.

      Suprisingly it was such a good game that ran smoothly. I was very worried that 11 players plus npc's would drag and be unmanageable. But my gaming group are bloody awesome :-)
