Episode 86 – The Lore Of Beasts Review, BoTC and WM/H ETC Reports

 

Episode Sponsor – Clash of Swords – A Warhammer Fantasy Tournamenta 1 day Warhammer Fantasy tournament at Firestorm Games in Cardiff called Clash of Swords. There will be 3 games at 2400 points per army (with some armies getting more points). The event will be on the 1st of September. The idea behind the event is to trial out a new comp pack that tries to balance the armies to a certain degree without changing too many of the rules for the game. Some people have mentioned it as being a mid-way point between SCGT comp (light) and ETC comp (hard).

Fortnight in Fantasy.
