But we had a kings of war event and mini Mantic open day for those in Perth WA as we could not get to England.
I will have more up dates as I get this xmas finished and out more often.
Thursday, November 13, 2014
Well I have Got my first Kings of War event on Saturday the 29th November 2014 at one of the local gaming stores, Good Games.
I have use of the table for free and really looking for the opportunity to have the game stow cased there. Giving the store owner a chance to have mantic products in the future.
so we are having a 800pt event with four round , at this point I have eight player spots. this is the first time we have seen a kings of was tournament in WA so I am not expecting much. If I can get eight players I will be happy with that.We are just starting the road to getting people playing so it is good to take what you can and build on it.
Mantic have just started to get Mars Attcaks out to retailers and seems to have not got the traction yet in the market place. they have asked if we could do some demos with mars attacks in the deadzone universe so I will look at getting this happening. I will admit that my Kickstater only just arrive this week so I really have not been able to demo Mars attacks yet. So with the arrival of mars attacks I am going to start doing a couple of demo and get the ball rolling with the board game crowd as well.
well I have started to put together a players pack for a dreadball league at the club. I hope that the club would approve the League to start in the new year. I am again only looking for about 6 to 8 players to get it of the ground and practice running a league. If it works out I hope to get the small leagues running at a couple of clubs this may then build the player base. We do have a lauge following of blood bowl so with dreadball still being supported I hope that we can get some regular groups playing. this season I will be playing - The Red Planets - my mars Attacks dreadball team.
Just need to paint them, I have started on the first test model already.
well I have a new demo board for the game now just got to get it to the table. at this point I have no big plans or leagues yet. I will just get the game out and do demos next week I am at good games with some demos of the the game.

We all played scenario 2 from the Hellfire and Stone Campaign Book
750 pts with no additions, We had two players who never played Kings of war before in that mix.
with loaner armies they picked up the rules very quickly and by game three where well into it.
The game was ambush at Redblade ridge, and had a different set up. It was cool not to just set up on the board edge and just go for it.
We all managed to get two games in with one group getting three games in the night. we both played attackers and defenders.
So this is the second time we have met to play the campaign and have our painting finished.
I look forward to round three.
But before round three we have a gaming day event ( not quite a tournament) at the local gaming store
Saturday 29th Sept. at Good games Rockingham,
At this point a 800 to 1000 pt gaming for new and old Kings of war players.
also coming up is
Kings of War demos at outpost south on Tuesday 4/11/2014
Deadzone and Mars Attacks demos at Good Games Rockingham on Monday 17/11/2014
but for now Photos of the night.
I was able to talk to the store owner and tee up a time to do some demos of Mars attacks, ( I hope the kick starter arrives soon) and dead zone .
so Monday 17th November is Mantic demo night at good game Rockingham.
I was able to get some demos of Mars attacks in on Monday with the store owner and a couple of magic players between rounds.

So there could be a dread ball league next for the club?
It was a great night because even those that did not want to play Mars Attacks are now looking at other games in the range.
- So coming up at KRAGS next friday night the 26th October ,
will be Dread ball demos.

the new new game
Mars Attacks has landed.
While my kickstarter edition is on way my demo kit has arrived,
so I look forward to getting it out and on the table, this week.
I will be down at Krags this Friday to start the learning games.
Tuesday, October 14, 2014
while I was away down south I got a call that the players up at one of the local clubs after running there yearly Fantasy event where looking for a new direction and wanted to know if I could demo some Kings of war so I went down to there club and complete a couple of demos. during the night a few other club members already playing games wanted to know more. This means I am booked in to there club on the 4th for another demo day with them.
Great to start to get some traction with the players here in the west.
Photos from the demo day.
Krags will be starting a monthly painting challenge so this seem like a good time for players who would like to learn a new game to start with a fresh army and system.
I am starting a slow grow mantic paint challenge and learn to play Kings of War, by Mantic Games.
Kings of War is the game of mass combat between mighty armies in a fantasy world torn apart by epic conflict and legendary battles. Its fast-paced, competitive rules make the game ideal for massed battles between hundreds of troops - and with Mantic's range, it's possible to do just that without breaking the bank!
We will have to paint 200points for mantic Kings of War list each month, with the end of November we will have a how to play Kings of War tournament event.
So each month
We will raise the point by 200 points then the next month while painting the models we will play a game. To learn the fine art of Kings of War.
This leaves us having an 800 point event in November
On the completion of your months painting to 200 points you will receive a raffle ticket.
If you complete any extra painting during the month you will receive a raffle ticket for each group of two hundred points you complete.
With the first prise draws being at the 800pt event in November.
Now what models to paint we would like you to paint mantic models but you can paint whatever you like.
You may choice just to add to your Warhammer army while learning a new game to boot. You could even build a new Warhammer army using mantic minis while playing a new game system while painting.
The rules for Kings of War are on the mantic web site as a free down load I also have some copies that are available.
So get on the painting challenge and learn a new game at the same time.
So what makes Kings of War special?
The rule system is clearly written, simple and innovative. Written by Alessio Cavatore, Kings of War is an easy-to-learn fantasy battle wargame that is tactical, simple and innovative.
The rules have been fine-tuned after thousands of games and hundreds of pieces of feedback from the gaming community. It is a clearly written game for hobbyists, by hobbyists that allows you to play large-scale games with lots of miniatures easily and quickly.
It's a fantasy battle game written for both the Casual and Competitive Player. With an innovative turn sequence, a built-in tournament pack and the option to play timed games, Kings of War is a fast and simple game that naturally lends itself to competitive tournaments. It’s such a good fit, even our own tournament organizers have been able to play whilst running the event!
The Miniatures range is ever-expanding, and always affordable!
Nine armies are now available – from the horrifying Undead and brutal Ogres all the way to proud Dwarfs and zealous Basileans. Each is affordable and models are simple to put together, allowing you to get them on the gaming table quickly.
It bring a a fantasy world to life. The compelling Kings of War world has been developing for years and the hardback Rulebook contains a detailed map of the world of Mantica, as well as a history of its land and races. This rich fantasy realm is one of war and bloodshed where kingdoms clash in epic battles.
we had our first get together on the last friday in September
we play 250 point games out of the Hellfire and stone book,
these where great quick games and we played about six games each. swap armies and defender and attacker roles we all ahd a great night.
over the past four years or so I have been producing terrain for my gaming needs well I Have now more terrain then I need and have to find a new direction for my gaming hobby.
So I have started to work as a Mantic Pathfinder.
I love Kings of war , as well as dead zone and Dreadball, so it was easy to apply for the program.
So this blog will start with showcasing my activities with the Mantic pathfinders program.
There will still be times I will place terrain projects on the blog but it will now be the home to the adventures of a Mantic Pathfinder in one of the remote capital city's around the world, Perth Western Australia.
Over the past 2 years I have changed focus of the blog.
I am a terrain guy and that is staying the same,
I know have moved my terrain projects from just GW to new gaming
systems. One of the loves of the game is the hobby for me collecting and painting
minis as well as making and painting terrain for them, this is just as much
fun. I like to tell a story on the table just as much as with the models I use.
I am no golden demon or crystal brush painter but I love to play it painted. So
I am a painter to table top standard I believe in the 2 foot rule, if it looks
good from two foot away then it is done to a min standard. I then work on character
models to a better standard.
With that I have the same rule for my tables and terrain. If
you look into a gaming hall and see the table and walk over to have a look and
watch the game on it then it has done its job. The tables have to be playable
so if the terrain has to work for game play as well as looks
With being the terrain guy at the club I do a lot of the
tables and I make my own tables for fun over the coming year I am putting together
tables for other systems these are my records of what I am up to as well as
some of the tables I already have produced.
Take time to look and if you have ideas or comments do leave
