Interview with Eirini Ligia, ETC 2012 Greek team Coach.

I don't know if it was Eirini's enthusiasm about the game or her readiness to answer the questions that left me a very good image about her and to tell the truth i wasn't that stunned (or shaken) to learn about a girl that likes warhammer 40k so much or boardgames / role playing games since i know other girls who also like such games.

Eirini was the Coach of team Greece in the ETC 2012 - that means that she kept results from the games and advised our players during the games what results should they try to get depending on the results of the other players.

Lets see the interview with Eirini.

World War two returns in 28mm.

The Bolt action range of miniatures by Warlord games has been on the market for some time, quite an extensive range of world war two plastic (multi-part) and metal miniatures were sold to be used for world war two 28mm miniature war games and Warlord's own Operation squad miniature war game, a game that as it wasn't too well known nor supported didn't got the attention it (might) needed.

Some time ago Warlord announced the publication of the Bolt action WW2 miniature war game, a little later i stumbled upon their website and read some reviews and articles from the producers, the impression from what i read led me to believe that we are in the first steps of a new brilliant game that will take its place among the big games out there in the market - Warhammer fantasy and 40k, Flames of War, Warmachine and the rest.

The reasons are: the rules of the game who are written by veteran game designers Alessio Cavatore and Rick Priestley are simple fast and easy to understand and also close to what we used to play with the warhammer 40k 5th edition and the brilliant range of miniatures who can only be compared with the top manufacturers in the market right now.

Interview with Vasilis Apostolopoulos ETC captain 2012

The Greek ETC team got back for about a week now and as promised we have a small interview with the team's captain Vasilis Apostolopoulos, Vasilis played also in the 2011 ETC Greek team and he was the only player to come back for the 2012 competition, this time as the team captain, quite the responsibility.

Let's see what Vasilis has to say about his experience.

1. How long are you playing Warhammer 40000 and with what armies.

I am in this game for almost four years now but I have studied it and knew about it for far more, so my adaptation to the game was easy. I can easily play a lot of armies but at this point I play Blood Angels, Chaos Daemons, Space Wolves and soon I will have my own Grey Knight army, of course don't get troubled if you see me play Orks.

2. You just got back from ETC 2012 in Poland, what was this experience for you in general?

As far as the level of the game (playing) since it was the second time for me playing in the tournament i got even more experience since I think that each time that you participate in it you accumulate experiences and new ways to deal with different situations, it is important to play with the best because then you become better yourself.

As an experience I have to add that the participation of nine Greeks in the team was very important and it also added a unity within the team, as a captain I think that I accumulated also a lot of experience in team management, apart from that - regarding the event itself - you have to be there to see what I am talking about.

First news from ETC 2012 40k.

Photo taken from Anubis, the team player missing from the photo.

With our team back from Poland and some phone calls the Invulnerable managed to a basic first idea of what our team did in the tournament, there isn't anything coherent still - an interview with the team's captain will follow but the breaking news go as such.

Genocide Chronicles 3.1

Inv: Some weekends ago the Genocide Chronicles tournament was hosted in the Legion Wargaming club, since i was too busy to write down a report and take photos Kostas Lekkas "the Chronomancer" wrote down a report based on photos taken from GrManthos.

Here it is:

Ooooh... So... Where were we? Ah! Yes!

Greetings Ladies and Grots, please fasten your seatbelts and pray for a quick ending, but be warned: Quick endings is not my field of expertise. You will suffer boredom, black humour, headaches and the most unlucky ones will be thrust into paranoia by my script.

Legion Wargaming club tournament.

Some weekends ago i decided to pay a visit to the new-founded Legion War gaming club in Ilioupoli. The club alongside with Boxes of war online store were holding a Warhammer 40.000 tournament and it was the best chance not only to take some photos from the new club but also from a 40k tournament in the new club.

While the Legion is a new place in the community the people behind it are devoted veteran miniature war gamers,  there is a lot of energy and ambition in their effort in making a club and so far this effort seems that it paid off, there were 14 players in the tournament (rare for this time of the year - if i may say so)

The Boxes of War online store also held a market day of their merchandise during the day, and they were also part of the organizers for the tournament.

24-3-2012 Warhammer 40k tournament in FS Viktoria.

It feels good to be back in the keyboard after some time, actually with so much work going on with my regular job it was quite hard to find time for the blog, but i sure missed writing and mumbling about toy soldiers and more importantly about the players that move them and give them life.
