Ogre Kingdoms

So I been working on the stores Warhammer 40,000 army, the Tyranids for a while. I also have a Fantasy Army in building, the Bretonians. But last night after the Ardboyz tournament, we decided to start another army. We choose Ogre Kingdoms, and me and my daughter bought a Ogre Kingdoms Battallion and opened it up and began building pieces out of it!

I was expecting the ogres to be bigger for some reason, but they are bigger than some minis. Here is one of the ogres we glued together last night. We will do some painting today!

Ardboyz Tournament

To help fill the gap from losing Magic the Gathering, we have been actively building up our Games Workshop brand and it's been working. Magic players are switching over to Warhammer in great numbers. For this we are grateful, and this weekend we started our first Ardboyz tournament, a 3,000 point Fantasy Tournament! It was our first one, and it was a bit messy, but it ended up working just fine and we're happy with the results. The next one is in February for War of the Ring, and I hope we can host that one as well, and we will be much better prepared by that time!!

Caleb of the Wood Elves ended up winning out tournament!



So you are probably all wondering what is going to happen with Zendika. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we will be able to sell Magic to you guys. Both locally and over the internet, Wizards of the Coast has shut all of you down from getting your Magic from me. There isn't much we can do about it. We have appealed to them to give us Magic so our customers can have it, but they have simply refused to answer. Not sure what is going on over there.

So what are we going to do? Try OTHER games and build up a following doing other things. We've spent the better part of the my gaming career building up the Magic brand, all the way back to Antiquities, in one form or another, and it just doens't make sense to keep putting my love and sweat into a game that is run by a company that would do this to it's customers.

Remember one thing though, the GAME is still cool. Just not the company! Wherever that leaves you, I don't know. But if things ever change, we'll let you all know here first!
