Hey folks it’s Siskey here again with the details of the social arrangements for the Irish Masters, which is THIS WEEK!.
Every year, the Irish Masters prides itself on being a great social venue as well as hosting a competitive and enjoyable Warmachine & Hordes event. This year will be no exception! Continue reading
Siskey here again with more news!
Since the latest league season has been released (here it is!) I know that I’m not the only one wondering when I’ll ever have time to get some games in. There’s all this XP to earn but with an action-packed competitive play schedule when will there ever be time to earn it?
Fear not! The new league begins on the 2nd of March, so we’re slap bang in the middle of the season at the Irish Masters. I want to welcome all attendees to the Irish Masters Paths of Devastation League. As self-appointed League Commissioner, I will be recording your XP gains throughout the weekend.
All games played over the weekend will be counted for the purposes of the league. So whether you’re facing Don Hornacek or HRM Jocke Rapp I in the finals of the Masters, or playing a pick-up game against me, they’ll count towards your total. Just for funsies, I’m going to include ALL Privateer Press games in the league. So if anyone has a copy of Infernal Contraption or Level 7 they’d like to crack out, that counts too!
The upshot of all the XP gains is that you’ll have them to build a Hero. I will be running Scramble tournaments with the Riven Bonds league rules as an option, so as I’ve said before if you and 7 buddies want to play those rules fire away. I will also be taking sign-ups for interested parties.
Looking forward to seeing everyone tearing it up at the Masters!
Hey everyone, Siskey here today to tell you about our Scramble tournaments that will be taking place at the Irish Masters! As you know the Masters is a three-day event this year, and tickets have been snapped up fast for many of the events. Have you got a free Friday, a slovenly Saturday or a still-to-be-decided Sunday ahead of you? Fear not, our Scramble tournaments are here to help!
I will be on hand all weekend long to organise 8-player tournaments on an ad hoc basis. Simply grab 7 of your best buddies and I’ll have you at each others’ throats in no time. Don’t have 7 buddies? I’ll be keeping sign-up sheets and will announce in my tannoy-like voice when your Scramble is ready to go.
As well as Steamroller 2015, we will have some very special formats for you all to choose from! If you never got a chance to try some of the wacky league rules, we’ve got everything from Shattered Grounds to Scars of Caen! If you want to see what things were like back in the good old days, we’ve got Jackhammer! Feel like trying out Spell Draft, or the Warjack/beast Bonding Rules? Why not play them in a Scramble and get it out of your system?!
Every Scramble comes with an iron-clad promise* of good times and friendships that will last a lifetime. Look for me and my beautiful assistant at the Scramble Desk!
*Disclaimer: Not actually a promise.
And now we have the member of the team who is not actually from Northern Ireland: it’s a-me! For reasons too silly to explore now I usually don’t use my real name in gaming circles, but thanks to online registration and payment for various tournaments around Europe it’s surfacing more and more, sometimes even with my middle name thrown in for good measure. Take it away, me!
O Captain Our Captain! If you’ve seen “Life on Mars”, “Goodnight Sweetheart” or “Heartbeat”, that is Mike’s life, except in reverse. Due to a Mad Science experiment gone wrong, this 1950s gentleman was hurled 70 years into the future, where his nascent Warmachine skills could be properly tested. He’s also single-handedly keeping handkerchief and comb manufacturers in business. Lay it on us, Mike.
It’s time for the second of our player profiles, with John! John is a proper doctor, not a fake doctor like certain other contributors to this blog, he’s got indecipherable handwriting and everything! He leads with a reference to soccer, which shows you that despite his vaunted profession he is still in touch with the common man. What a gent.
As I’ve mentioned once or twice, I’m deserting President and country and playing for our Northern brethren this year at the World Team Championship in Poland. Since the lists are released this week, I thought it was a nice time for all the players to introduce themselves and their lists. First up is Adam. If you can imagine this entire post with a soundtrack of “The 100 Best Action Movies of the 1980’s”, you’re on the road to achieving Adam-awareness. Take it away, Adam.
