GET INVOLVED IN WHAT WE PLAY
WARHAMMER 40,000 AT THE CLUB
Most if not all Tanelorn members have at least dabbled in 40k in the past, and while there are tonnes of games played at the club, 40k is one of the consistent staples with a core of regular players meaning you can almost always get a game and be assured some variety in opponents and opposing armies. It’s fair to say the ethos of 40k players at Tanelorn is very casual. We tend towards making things look good and ensuring all players have a good time, more than list tailoring and WAAC armies and playstyles.
On a typical club day up in Rule Zero there are 2-4 members playing 40k, either in two separate battles, or increasingly popular 4 way multiplayer games.
In the past couple of years we’ve run one narrative campaign with linked battles culminating in an 8,000 point all day Apocalypse battle, and one hex map campaign.
MIDDLE EARTH STRATEGY BATTLES
With the release of the 3rd edition of the rules, interest in this game system has been on the increase in 2019 and 2020. The club is currently running a slow grow campaign Some of our club members have even ventured out to attend external events such as Ardacon and other one or two day events.
Ever since the dawn of Mark 1 of this ruleset, there has been an active interest in this game system. Privateer Press have created a tight competitive gaming set of rules. With new models being released accompanied by their annual Steamroller scenario pack you can guarantess this game stays competitive. There are many club players with multiple factions who play at the club as well as attend outside events such as the The Welsh Masters or the UK Nationals.
KINGS OF WAR
Mantic's KIngs of War 2nd edition ruleset appealed to many of our club members who had come from growing and playing Games Workshops Warhammer Fantasy Battles. It gave us that same mass fantasy battle feeling. Interest was such that we ran a successful multi player campaign in 2019. With the dawn of 3rd edition, club members have continued to play this great game system. and in early 2020 we even played a Siege game!
OTHER GAME SYSTEMS
Gamers are fickle so it will come as no surprise that since the club has been in existence (since 2000), games have come, go, stuck around and some have even returned!
With the innovation of crowd funding, laser cutters and 3d printers there are a myriad of game companies and figure manufacturers out there. Add to this the resurgence of the board game so prepare yourself to see some interesting games being played at the club. From Gaslands, to Saga, from Blood Bowl to Shadespire/Nightvault/Beastgrave to the hottest new kids on the block aka Marvel Crisis Protocol, expect to see it played at the club.
