Clash this year was a whopper. 80 players attending and, naturally, some absolutely stunning armies in attendance. I had a fantastic time yet again and really enjoyed the entire weekend. Coming into the event I had some big shoes to fill. Last year I managed to fluke myself to the number 1 spot and people … Continue reading 2018 Clash of Kings – A fall from grace
My bets for Clash of Kings Champ 2018
Predicting who exactly will win a tournament is near impossible, especially one as large as Clash of Kings. I’m still going to give it a go, but discuss a few different people.

During 1st edition the community was tiny. … Continue reading Casual gamer? Go to a tournament!

Tournament Report: Clash at Kingston
Saturday 11th March saw me attend my first tournament with my Abyssal Dwarfs army. It was a rush! Even as of Tuesday that week I barely had half of the army painted. In the end I managed to cobble together a painted force in true tournament fashion, finishing painting it with the 3 colour minimum … Continue reading Tournament Report: Clash at Kingston
