Warmachine and Hordes Journeyman League

Journeyman League

A new version of the Warmachine and Hordes rules will be released on June 28th and The Sentry Box will be running a Journeyman League starting on Saturday July 2nd. This league will be for new or returning players and will aim to be a fun and casual way for players to learn the rules, paint some miniatures and have fun exploring the new Warmachine and Hordes rules.

A Journeyman League is a six week event that helps players learn the ins and outs of their specific faction by playing a series of game with the points increasing each week. The focus is on painting, playing and having fun. With the new release of the rules, Privateer Press has streamlined the Journeyman League rules to make them easier to understand.

So come out and learn to play Warmachine and Hordes or come back to the game and try a new faction. The Sentry Box is taking preorders for the new faction starter sets, tokens and rulebooks.

New arrivals for Monday April 11th, 2016

Its been a month since our last new arrivals post. No-one tell Gord! He’ll break my legs faster than Paul Newman will beat a recalcitrant corn farmer. Lets not dwell on the potential threat to my mobility and instead look at all the new-pretty we have in the store.

Lands of Porphyra Campaign Setting by Purple Duck Games

Lands of Porphyra, the culmination of years of work by many talented artists and writers, whose vision has come together to create a campaign world of dazzling complexity and awesome potential for your Pathfinder campaigns.

Porphyra is a world that grew up without gods, dominated by the followers of the Elemental Lords who oppressed those who would not bow down…until a brave coalition of elves and orcs performed The Calling, and brought an amazing pantheon of gods and the myriad strange lands they loved, to merge with the young world, and start a world-spanning war!

Now, it is eight centuries since the NewGod Wars, and the 50-odd nations and regions of the Patchwork Planet of Porphyra seethe in uneasy truce, the more than 80 races that call it home dreaming of peace- or war anew…

Star Trek Attack Wing The Classic Movies – The Wrath of Khan

Star Trek Attack Wing The Classic Movies

The classic Star Trek movies have come to Star Trek: Attack Wing! First, battle against Khan Noonien Singh in an effort to secure the Genesis Device, then return to the newly created Genesis planet to find Spock, and finally journey back in time to retrieve the now extinct humpback whales in order to save Earth from its impending demise in this exciting three-month Storyline Organized Play (OP) program!

The Sentry Box will be hosting the Star Trek Attack Wing The Classic Movies event 1 – The Wrath of Khan, on Wednesday April 27th at 6:300pm.

We hope to have the games start promptly at 6:30 so please show up early with your fleet list ready.

Your fleet encounters an enemy fleet outside of the Mutara Nebula. Being made up of mostly ionized gases, the static discharges contained within this interstellar dust cloud will not allow your ships’ sensors and shields to function properly while they are within the nebula. It will take high levels of skill, experience and intelligence to do battle within such an environment. Will your fleet have what it takes to enter into such a battle?

Participation Prizes: (10) General Orders Cards
Competitive Prizes: (3) S.S. Reliant Prize Packs
1 Maneuver Dial
8 Cards (with 2 Ship, 1 Maneuver, 1 Captain and 4 Upgrade Cards)
3 Token Sheets (with 2 Captain ID, 1 Ship, 1 Effect and 3 Shield Tokens)

New arrivals for Friday March 18th, 2016

Once you get used to working here at The Sentry Box (motto – Suggest a good motto and win a free backrub!) you get accustomed to the pace of releases and the arrival of new products. But even as jaded as I have become, and it is quite sad really, I was surprised that we already received the first expansion for the B-Sieged game. Despite reeling from that surprise arrival, I was able to chronicle the other fine, fine products that we received at the store today.

Star Trek: Attack Wing – The Void OP event

STAW The Void OP

The Sentry Box will be hosting the Star Trek: Attack Wing – The Void OP event on Wednesday April 13th at 6:30pm. Entry to the event will be $5.00 and we will begin registration and set-up at 6:00pm.

Players will be required to build their fleets based on the standard tournament rules with a three ship minimum and faction pure builds unless you have an accompanying Resource.

Your fleet is hit by a graviton surge and is pulled through a funnel into the void, a region of space that is devoid of stars and planets. This anomaly is a closed structure encased by an inert layer of subspace. The outer circumference is approximately 9 light years and matter and energy cannot penetrate it. In addition, your ships are being drained of energy at 10 times the normal rate.

Suddenly, you find yourself attacked by other ships that are trapped in the void and your food and technological resources are being stolen by the attacking ships. All new arrivals always try to escape the void, but nothing seems to be able to breach it. And so, they all turn into thieves and killers. Welcome to the void.

There will be prizes for the first place and fellowship players which will consist of the contents of the Void OP kit: 10 Limited Edition Tactics Cards Resource and Reference Participation Prizes and 2 Limited Edition I.R.W. T’Met Competitive Prize Card Packs
