So it all started on Friday (Thursday was just dropping off a 50kg package, which my uncle carried by himself!!)
First to arrive of "Prodos Sweden" team, I was warmly welcomed by Rob, Elliot and Richard! The shop was already unpacked so we waited for our demo tables and our first customers, well after me.. I spent around 200£+ on minis before anyone else had a chance to see the stuff! Somethings was just to good to pass on!
Yea the Imperials, sold like nothing else! Wow those starter boxes were gone like the wind!
Rob was really looking forward to see what Sweden and Gothcon had to offer, since it according to him is like nothing in England. There people comes to the Prodos booth throws them money and says: "How much can I get for this!?"
Oh how lovely the Bauhausian Grizzly looks when its in pieces! ;)
So the shop was up and running with all four of us, selling and talking to excited fans of old and new. Lots of people who had no idea that Warzone finally was back! Lots of people were in our room all the time, people who had been visiting us before came back with their friends. It was really fun to see such love for the game!
Finally the saviour arrives, Andreas Erlandsson comes with our first demoboard and quickly builds it up and starts playing!
While they play we are busy in the shop (And taking photos, yes!) When another board comes in with Klas Whilney! He demands to face me in a demogame, sure why not!? ;)
Since we had no terrain over at the moment we had to have a large hill in the middle of the board to not get LoS at the beginning. He was playing Caps and I was playing Robs "Demohaus"
The rest of the demo armies, Imperial, Bauhaus extra units and the Dark Legion.
After being defeated by my apprentice Klas (In the picture I have Steiner left.. but it was not for long!) He looked for a little more compition in his match and fought on the third demo table against its owner, Andreas Engström!
The brave! (Or foolish?) Trencher runs forth against Alakhai and cuts him with his bayonet!
Rob is looking... good... as always! ;) Moving on! Bring on the evening and a dinner at the Moon!
After our visit there, Elliot came up with the saying: You never go full moon!
Saturday morning the one and the only Fredrik "Hamilkar" showed up! Finally mate you made it! Thank the gods you got off work!
And then Henrik dropped in and "Prodos Sweden" were in the building! Really great to meet you guys again! Oh and Henrik, thanks for the book you left me! ;)
Prods crew for Gothcon 2014, with guests of honour Kex Chocklad and Plopp!
The whole day was packed with people, the demotables were almost never unused! Really great to see so many people enjoying the game!
My blogbrother Johan (Diceandbrush) made an apperance on the Con, he´s a really cool and funny guy.. And a much better painter than me! ;) Here we can see him preparing a battle against his reallife brother!
Johan´s two armies. So great looking, really jealous! Especially on the Alakhai, be sure to check him out!
Fredrik is looking for some new resin too buy, well he is in the right place! Put in the Caps section? (Thats his big spender face he´s making!)
Never catched his name, but he wanted his Hamilkar signed!
Sunday (Aprox. 01.00 People would still call it saturday)
The match is on, I know you guys have waited forever for it. But now I can finally give you the......
WORST WZR PLAYER IN THE WORLD MATCH!!!
Rob plays his Bauhaus and I try out the new Imperial who everybody says should be soooooo OP! Well lets go!
The greyhound was my last model, managed to kill Max and the Hussars but the Vulkan stomped me to bits, Vulkans win!!!
Rob, Richard and Elliot wanted a photo with the Worst WzR player in the world.. But since it was just the four of us it had to be two photos!
Overall a really great and fun weekend! Thanks to everybody that came to us at gothcon, Prodos, Demogamers, Fans and thanks to Gothcon that let us be apart of this awesome Convention! See you guys next year and as a final picture this is what I brought home with me!
So I just checked out the new beautiful shop and the new retail boxes for startersets when I came across these changes in the starterboxes of Dark Legion and Brotherhood.
Alakhai is out, and two Necromutant Leaders are in.
Cardinal Dominic is on the bench, welcome the new Inquisitor Squad Commanders
Really good idea to start with the Squad Commander upgrades instead of a Warlord. The same is in the Imperial Starter where the Trencher Officers are in the box. As the Warlord are replaced the starters wont have the same amount of "Power" in them making them even better for newstarted players to get a go on each other with.
With no Warlord in the box to eat up a huge amount of points of your starting force, the Squad Commander is a great addition to your force. For low points cost they bring is a good deal for the amount of fire power or boost to the unit the lead.
Exciting news anyway! Will we see this change in all starters soon? Whats your thoughts on this change?
So I´m back for now. Got to get pumped up because me and Prodos are gonna come kicking down at Gothcon!
Rob and some boys will manage the shop (They will have a whole classroom full of WzR stuff), and myself will throw some demogames. As it seems now my dear friend Dice and Brush wants go tag along for some learning from the master! (Thats me okey!?) Mr. Hamilkar himself will also make an apparence on the Saturday and maybe some special guests from the AvP Universe?
So look for us there and maybe these badass looking minis can be yours!
Trencher Squad Commanders?
Hurricane Walker (Light Viechle)
Trenchers, notice that Charger? Yea It can be yours!
Golden Lions, AKA Shredders, the Turtle Banes!
The Light Tankette!
And this Badass mini!
Valpurgis, but I will seriously play him as Saladin, until Saladin turn up in mini! ;)
And on the other hand here are some of the minis you can drool over at Gothcon until the get out in May! :D
Cant wait for them to show up on my birthday! :D
And different news, I have been working on a secret project I hope I can share with all of you soon! Otherwise you guys will have to wait some time, but it will be worth it! :D
Finally here's a teaser for the Heretics set being designed by Prodos Games, which will consist of five figures with Stat cards for Warzone. These are available now as an Add On (just pick the 'Miniatures Add On' at £15). They show off the final set soon. Each week they will be unveiling figure sets that are available now and those which are being unlocked.
To give you an idea they currently have planned 3 figure RPG character sets for Imperial, Capitol, Bauhaus, Mishima, Cybertronic, the Brotherhood, Heretics, Civilian Characters and much more. Each set will be £15 as an Add On.
So here´s the first render for the Rpg minis, the Heretics! Kratach and a melee weapon or grenade under development. Looks really promising! :D One head will change, so we will see some change the coming days!
So we arrived to Questing Knight for some demo games! Wasnt so small as I had imagine!
We thought we would face each other BUT! Questing Knight had other plans and pitted my Capitol and Henriks Mishima against Cybertronic and Dark Legion!
So right to the good stuff right? They won the deployment roll and gave it to us. So here´s my force without the Airbourne Rangers whos stil in the plane ( Rapid deployment).
So we dicided to hold one front each so i was pitted against the Legion and Mishima against Cybertronic. Henrik hid in the forest while I was more in the open for more flexibel movement!
So we did win the first Initiative roll and the Light Infantry was the first to get going.
My other unit to be activated was the Banshees i used the jumppacks to get ahead of the rest of the army to shot at some Undead legionaires!
I took out two of the Legionaires with two shots! Victory will be mine!!! ( Or so I thought...)
They UL with their Necromutant commander were activated and after that( Henrik played between) there were his Razides and lets just say... This was what remained!
And in the meantime my Light Infatry see this coming in the streets!
A Scorpion! Truly a hideous sight! ( Unless hes on your side)
On the Dark Legion front Golgotha finally makes a move and are on her way!
With a steady shambling of Undead behind her!
They Cybers are taking their time and sending in its Scorpions first!
This is actually quite funny... This was the beginning of many good laughs today! The Ronin tried to hit the UL:s but Henrik is a MASTER! of rolling over 17... with like everything he did! Mishima Quality!
So my brave Infantry runs up the alley and now the Questing Knigths guys tells me I can shot grenades with my M50:s.. What?! Really! Lets do it then!
So we targeting the Undead Legionaires and kill 2 of them! Yay more Zombies destroyed!
So my Mitch was feeling alittle lonely on the left front with 2 Razides and Golgotha on her way, I dropped the Airbournes and unleashed a hail of missles at the Razides.. with little affect! 3 missed and only 1 wound!!!
So the next thing the DL player does is engage my poor old Airbournes! Picking of two right away!
Meanwhile Mitch hides out in the bushes and feels he´s beeing watched!
On the other front the Meka has taken a few hits but are still going strong and have taken out a Scorpion and are now looking to chop ut some circute sushi of the Chasseurs!
The other Scorpion gets to taste the Capitol Shotgun, and he doesnt like it!
And Mitch turns into a human hurricane and wipes out the Undead Legionares and Necromutant Leader, then he´s an easy target for the Razides who chopped up the poor Airbournes real good!
So now he´s down to his last wound! And are still in the open.. What are you doing Mitch!?
Then suddenly Golgotha uses her mirror and shows up and brings the pain with 6 attacks in the back of Mitch! (Ouch)
But it´s okey, she´s only ST 10. so no problems with saving that!
Back to the other front where Meka is chopping Chasseurs, no problems there!
Then back to Mitch again.... This could be alittle more troublesome!
I just say this. No he didnt make it! :(
So now I´m down to my last guy! One brave little Light Infantry!
So here he is! The Ronin squad makes a BANZAAAIIII!!!! And chops the Scorpion to bits!
Then they charged the Everassaur and gets down to only one after a Undead Legionare and Necromutant charge raising more Undead legionares.
My Light Infantry then panics and shoots a granade in the middle of it..... And to his great dissapointment only kills his Mishima friend! ;(
He then is charged by the Everassaur and are smashed to bloody paste...
Ha even though we lost this is one great game! Really fun and amazing rules, makes the battles feel more real and gives every model his own chance to shine! Im really impressed with the rules, minis and the joy of playing!
Thank you Questing Knight Games! This was really fun, both meeting you guys and play in your shop! Thanks for having us and will be seeing you guys tomorrow!
