Test of Honour game day

Come down to The Sentry Box on Sunday September 9th from noon to 4pm as we will be bringing out our samurai warbands and attempting to sweep our enemies away from the field of battle using our steel and rigorous honour.

If you haven’t played Test of Honour and are curious about the game then come down and ask Zac for a demo. We’ll have demo forces available and terrain put out and ready for use.

Test of Honour is a skirmish wargame played with roughly 5-20 models on each side. Players select their force before each game based around a samurai hero along with one or two loyal samurai companions and a variety of clan soldiers. Battles are swift and bloody as players alternate acting with one of their warriors – moving and fighting to achieve the objective of the scenario, whether that be cutting down the enemy, defending an outpost or finding and protecting a spy.


Build a Titan

Titan parts

Our weekend of Adeptus Titanicus fun continues! Come down to The Sentry Box on Sunday August 19th from noon to 3pm and join our local Adeptus Mechanicus adept while he builds a Titan from the the upcoming Adeptus Titanicus game.

The components for the Warlord Battle Titan are split between 3 frames: 1 featuring the inner skeleton, leg and torso assemblies that build the main structure, 1 frame of carapace and armour plates that give the Titan its distinctive shape, with Great Crusade and Age of Darkness armourials allowing you to display your models’ allegiance (blank examples are included) and a frame of weapons. Some come down and check out the details of the model before you build your own.

Learn to Play: Adeptus Titanicus

Adeptus Titanicus

Come down to The Sentry Box on Saturday August 18th from noon to 3pm and learn how to play Games Workshop’s latest game Adeptus Titanicus. God machines stalk each other across the broken warzones of the Horus Heresy. Titan Primarch Kris will help you learn to bring the enemies of the Emperor to heel. Or bring down the lackeys of the False Emperor.

Adeptus Titanicus: The Horus Heresy is a tabletop game of devastating combat between awe-inspiring machines, set during the civil war that tore the galaxy apart. 2 players take control of a variety of Titans – colossal, bipedal war engines covered in thick armour and weapons which can level a city in a single salvo. It is a strategic challenge in which you pit your skill and cunning against your opponent in a battle to the death; a test of tactical skill demanding the management of the resources at your disposal, determining the optimal reactions to the evolving state of the battlefield.

Bitz Trading Day

Many, many bitz

Come down to The Sentry Box on Sunday August 26th from noon to 5pm and bring your bitz, models, terrain and parts to trade with other gamers. We will have table space available for you to show your wares but it is limited so come early if you want to claim some table space.

Don’t miss this opportunity to get rid of some old models, get some new “old” models or find the perfect parts for your latest conversion.

We will also have a selection of products available at discounted prices.
