I'm with Artoban. Get a passport GP and come up to the glorious land of syrup! Show the lady friend our side of the falls. (It's totally better.)

I have family in England and Germany, so it's the kind of thing were every year we talk about visiting then sadly don't. One of these day's I'll use it as an excuse to go over around Bash time and drop in.

Even though there's a solid 75% chance visiting my family in Germany will be like that part of National Lampoons Family Vacation where they go to the wrong house and no one can tell because no one speaks the language.

I expect to see you there. Should I bring a TWAK army?
Oh, i donít even know where to find my armies!
Itís been so long since Iíve played anything.

Do you have pirates?

I can't remember what armies I have.   I'll dig out the rules and see :)   Mostly I have empire models though so I'd say my chance of having pirates is slim

Well I'm bringing a 2k T'au army (will have some proxies for farsight marskmen and Sniper Drones as those things aren't available at the moment :( ) and will fiddle with some builds for 1k and 1.5k otherwise I could manage that over there.
Same for AoS a 1k, 1.5k, 2k Stormcast Army, might also take a 1k Bloodbound army with me

Some models for Mordheim and Frostgrave

1 week to go, and counting down.

I'll bring one (or two) 40k armies, a mordheim warband, and a frostgrave warband
I's a pity some of the usual customers had to bail out, but I'm sure we'll have a great time and make those who are not present, be all the more sad for it  :wink:

Team UK is now looking like 'Solo UK'

My lad is not well enough yet, and I PM'd Fr1day and haven't heard back. We had spoken on the phone and he was very busy workwise, so I am guessing he's under pressure.

Any word yet on mr Piechee and Fr1day?

This makes me sad that Mr Piechee isn't feeling too well that he can't come, but also missing Fr1day now!
Anyway real glad that you will still make it Mids!

We can discuss 'motivation' for next year this weekend.

When we all played Frostgrave a couple of years ago there was a sort of 'theme' for the trip - maybe we need to choose such a theme each year.

Given the origins and history of the Bash based on Warhammer Empire, I have been considering having a serious look at 9th Age.
There are some whingers, but WHFB always had those, and reports of balance and how you can use pretty much all units have me interested.

Furthermore I have just discovered that Bugman himself is part of the set up and his endorsement is another strong plus.
Imagine dusting off the old Empire army and taking to the field at next year's Bash ..................


................... if I start next week I can probably have the army list written by Christmas.  :engel:

I think with fantasy fracturing it is a big problem with what you end up mandating.
I didn't feel like playing Frostgrave last year, so didn't bring my models/books. But I do also think it is potentially helpful to do it as well.

I find this generally true for all my Hobbying, since fantasy died i've branched out and tried a few different things but nothing has really grabbed me.
40k has been consistently enjoyable, even when the general community was decrying it as broken I enjoyed my games.

I've also tried other games and while I enjoyed playing them, they didn't grab me enough to want to carry on with any great passion (frostgrave, DropFleet more serious attempts, shadowar, star wars, and a boardgame/mini cross i tried with Matt)


In terms of my participation, I hopefully won't be on strike for a month next year, which has hit my financials enough (combined with my trip to the US) to make it not feasible this year.
Also I end up on 2-3 personal mini break holidays each year, which my wife doesn't do, which I felt was getting harder to justify in terms of money and time with 3 kiddos and the wife's work incredibly busy- it's certainly not my intention to never come again, but it might swap to every other year instead of every year nailed on.




but having said all that.... I do actually have a hankering for lining up a load of halflings/dwarfs in a tray and shuffling them around a board next year!
I don't care about the rules.

Pass the machete.
