Warhammer Live Round Up: January 4-6, 2017
After a brief holiday hiatus, Warhammer Live came back with a vengeance this week, and we had loads of great content for you over on our Twitch channel.
On Wednesday, we had two games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: a narrative game between Chris’s Order army and Rob’s Death army, followed by a matched play game between Luke’s Chaos and Nathan’s Order forces. Here are the lists:
Chris Peach even wrote a poem about the fight and sent it along to us, so we’ll share it with you here:
Calling themselves the Red Tide.
The shambling dead arrived.
Drums and horns did sound.
And Hallowguild stood their ground.
The arrogance to ask for our surrender!
But the Comet Chartists remember.
With books, stones and a strongly worded noun
We did cast that carrion Queen down.
After we delivered the killing thrust
the dead crumbled to dust
So once I’ve cleaned my club,
The Comet Chartists are off to the pub!

On Thursday’s Inside the Studio, we had several awesome segments including Mailbag, Secrets of the Black Library with John French, Duncan Talks (with Duncan), Community Corner – where we learned about lots of events going on around the world, and live interviews with Owen Patten from the Warhammer World Scenery Team and Jes Goodwin of miniature sculpting fame.
Finally, on Friday, we had two Warhammer 40,000 games.
The first game was the second narrative bout between Eddie’s Genestealer Cults and Tyranids ‘alliance’ and Nick’s Ultramarines (with some help from the Deathwatch). Eddie and Nick worked out their own mission parameters which were simple and straightforward, but since so many of you asked about it in the Live Chat, we asked them about it and they had this to say:
“We just wanted to have a bit of a story to guide the game, but as it was a narrative game we didn’t want to spend a lot of time specifying the rules. The Ultramarines’ objective was to escort the psyker to the landing zone. They deployed first, 12″ onto the short table edge furthest from the landing zone. The Tyranids then deployed in their way (but most were deep striking) and the Deathwatch came in from Reserves later on. That was about as complex as it got.”
The second match was a more competitive game played between Dan’s White Scars and Zach’s Eldar which was brutal right up until the last turn. Here are Friday’s lists:
