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.



“Painting and Converting”

For this post I have for you all are two of Greygore Boomhowler’s Trolls from Warmachine.


The one on the right is a female conversion I did. On Tuesday's post I should have for you all one more of Greygore Boomhowler's Trolls from Warmachine, unless I re-find the Kingdom Death/Wrath of Kings Twilight Knight cross over figure.



Until next time, hope for a better tomorrow.
