Another tournament and another warlord I have not used competitively; Aun’shi. To be honest, I am not a massive fan of Aun’shi, instead preferring Commander Shadowsun, but it’s good to try out new things.
Week Four of the X-Wing Summer League has just finished. Loki added another good result (2nd) with his double YT-1300 list to his impressive run of results so far (1st, 1st and 2nd). That puts him on top of the league going into the final week. However, it is still possible for Jack or Tim (that’s me!) to catch him.
After week three of five of our Warhammer 40K Conquest Summer League, the scores are incredibly close. Currently Tim is in the lead on 38 points, with James L and Gareth both only 1 point behind on 37. Then there’s a small drop down to Rik, me and Drew, all of whom still have a chance at the title. Just two more events to go, and with the top four scores only counting, it’s still wide open. Because you’re only allowed to play each Warlord once, could it be that Tim, James and Gareth have already played their favourites and have to play a Warlord they don’t like for the last two tournaments?
James L 37
James G 7
For this tournament I decided to go with a warlord that I have not yet used in a competitive environment; Urien Rakarth. He receives a lot of negativity in the online community (I am sure that some of you are already laughing at my choice of warlord) and whilst I freely admit that Packmaster Kith is a much stronger choice, leagues like this are a good opportunity to try out the less-used warlords, particularly as the stakes are quite low. Anyway, onto the decklist!
Since 2002 A Game of Thrones has been a great success for Fantasy Flight Games. A 2-4 player Living Card Game, it’s been through several expansions and now it’s time for 2nd Edition!
FFG have cleaned up the rules, streamlining the game, and are about to release the new edition in the next few weeks in the UK. If you can’t wait to see what the excitement is about, local card guru Rik has proxied up the new release and will be providing training sessions at the shop this Friday and Saturday. Why not come along and see if you have what it takes to rules Westeros?

If you’ve ever wanted to act as your favourite Star Wars characters, or at least as less powerful versions of those to start with, we’re starting a Star Wars RPG campaign suitable for absolute beginners this week at the shop. I’ll be running it Sunday afternoons from 12 to about 4pm for four weeks to give everyone a chance to see if they enjoy the system.
If you’re interested let me know, and may the force be with you!
The Great Devourer has been released at GenCon and spoilers are now floating around the internet, so I thought that I would take this opportunity to have a look at the fourteen non-Tyranid cards contained within. For fun as well I am going to give them a rating between 1-5, just so that I can look back on this article in the future and laugh about how wrong I was!
