The pre-order reduced price will end on the 29th of November 2015 and the stuff should hopefully ship during the first week of January 2016 if not sooner.

Lastly there is the Guild Ball news. They have posted their second Errata and Clarifications document for their Season One stuff. Pre-orders for the Mason’s Guild player Chisel and the Alchemist’s/Enginer’s Guild player Compound are up on their webstore. I do plan on picking up Chisel for two reasons. First is best I have a Mason’s team and the second is because she looks awesome. The artwork reminds me of Alite from Battle Angel Alite.

For rules for Guardians of Tyr tournaments and leagues as well as information on pre booking your place in tournament. Pre booking is highly recommended so they know how many people are coming. So please go to their website which there is a link to it under my links section which are located on the right hand side of this blog.

York House has a £3 on the day gaming fee (unless you are a child or unemployed where it is £1) and a £5 fee for a year’s membership. However the first day is free and they only take yearly membership fee at the start of the year. The hall officially opens at 7PM, but normally people start arrived 15 to 20 minutes early.



Until next time, hope for a better tomorrow.
