2011 TGN Readers Choice Awards

As a member of this great site, I thought I would let everyone know about their awards.  This year there are 7 categories, which cover all aspects of Tabletop gaming.

You will need to sign up to the Forums, before you can nominate. However, if there is a game/model/accessory; that you feel deserves recognition this is a good time to do it.

2011 TGN Readers Choice Awards

My nominations for this will be as follows –

  • Sci-fi Model – I’ve not played or bought anything, so will miss this one out.
  • Fantasy Model – Lord Exhumator Scaverous.  Wtf? I hear you cry.  Well to be honest, I didn’t like any of the Battle Engines. Most people like the Celestial Fulcrum, which I agree out of them all is ok; with perhaps the Storm Strider the peoples 2nd choice.  For me, Scaverous was the most unique model from both Wrath and Domination.  That is why he stands out for me.
  • Alternate Fantasy – Kirai Ankoku.  Malifaux to me is Alternate Historical Timeline, much in the same vein as Cyberpunk is an alternate future RPG.
  • Historical – Don’t play, no idea
  • Terrain and/or Accessory – Another one I won’t need.
  • Rules or Expansion – Hordes: Domination.
  • Vehicle – I’d nominate my car, but I don’t quiet think that would count.  So another one I will leave.

Got any other suggestions, then follow the link and get nominating.


Gaming Awesomeness

You’re probably thinking that I am about to announce something spectacular or amazing from the gaming world.  In truth, I am only here to praise the big hearts of Privateer Press, Warmachine/Hordes players and Press Gangers around the world; who have come together to help a 15 yo boy called Vince.

Vince is an avid Cygnar player, his dad is a Press Ganger in Belgium; only problem Vince has Cystic Fibrosis.  Due to poor health, Vince is now facing a double lung transplant.  Vince’s dad, just wanted messages for his son to read, willing him to keep fighting.  The response from both Privateer Press, Press Gangers and WM/H players all over the world; has been phenomenal.

Hundreds of messages, as well as offers of models both unpainted and painted; have been flooding in since the request was made.  I know from personal experience, that something like this; can lift the spirits of a child facing major surgery.  So to everyone who has sent messages or donations, thank you from one gamer to another.

PP Forum problems

Some of you will have noticed that the PP forums, have been down for the last few days.  At the moment, there is no official word; but rumours are that they are the victim of viral infection.

In my capacity as a Press Ganger, I apologise for the inconvenience this causes all our players and users of the forum.  Whether it is a virus on the servers, doesn’t make this any easier; it just makes it more frustrating to have no news.

One thing we can be sure of, technical staff will be doing everything in their power to get the forums back up; hopefully without loss of data.
