Final Stretch

This time next week, the Scottish Masters will be over; and we will have hopefully achieved the purpose we set out at the start.  The main aim, was to get a large Masters style tournament; on the Scottish and eventually the UK calender.  Starting small, would allow us to iron out any issues (of which we had a few); but also allow us to plan more efficiently for 2014.

I think given the time frame we had, we have achieved everything we hoped for on the planning side of the event.  Every player will walk away from the day, with a few momento’s of the day; a lucky few will win the great prizes contributed by the generosity of Battlefoam, Bases4War, Firestorm Games, Micro Art Studio, Warbases and Privateer Press.

Talking of contributions, I received the Warbases items today and have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by them.  The Feat Tokens look great and made of acrylic, not the MDF I was expecting.  The Bullet Keyrings, have just to get the split rings attached, to complete the look; but they come made up of at least 6 different colours of acrylic (I might need to requisition a Cryx green one).  With just the Chess Clocks and the resent items from Micro Art Studio, we are Good to Go!

 

 

Base4War Contribition

I have to apologise to Ste, the owner of Bases4War; for the delay in posting up something about his contribution to the event.  I recently suffered a mild TIA, which in simple terms is a form of stroke.  Unfortunately it has had other effects on my health, which have put me behind on a lot of things.

Ste send us over 50 bases, in 40mm and 50mm sizes.  They are perfect for wreck markers, so it is the plan to give some of these away to ever player who attends the Scottish Masters.  I’ll be doing a review of them later, when I get some time to do some painting; but I can safely say that the quality is way beyond what the website shows.  I’ll be looking into getting some of these myself, in the future.  Just to tease you a little, here is one of each base size.

I mentioned previously looking for scenic bases, partly for the Scottish Masters; but also for myself.  I’ve just placed an order with Bases4War, for some bases for the Scottish Masters.

I had contacted Ste about helping with the Scottish Masters, he kindly offered a 20% discount on anything in the store.  Rather than give one player the 20%, I’ve ordered a selection of the bases; with some extras to be given away as spot prizes throughout the day.

With Gen Con over, we should (hopefully) get word back on the logo design; so we can get the last pieces of this sorted.
