Club Night at the South London Legion - 11 September 2018


Recommended Posts

If you're looking for Age of Sigmar, Shadespire,  40K, Kill Team, Bloodbowl, Necromunda, Middle Earth, Malifaux or other games in London, then Starstride down to the South London Legion any Wednesday afternoon.

You can now find us here:

Lansdowne Hotel

 Carolyn House

Lansdowne Road 

 Croydon, CR0 2AD



The new venue is between East Croydon and West Croydon Stations. It’s only 5 minutes from our previous home.

It has a bar...?


This week!

  • #Goatmeta
  • People are pumped for the Battle of the Pelennor Fields box sets.
  • Aftermath of @Chris Tomlin ‘s #Blackout
  • Excitement over Nightvault!
  • A lot of excitement over AoS 2, Endless Spells, Realms.
  • 40K Sector Campaign going strong
  • Kill Team and scenery building
  • Necromunda

There will be the usual mixture of 2,000 point games going on. If you have a smaller force, then someone should be happy to give you an introductory or demo game as well.

Last week:

John came an impressive 5th at the Malifaux English GT! Despite thinking about Middle Earth throughout!

Max (with new Beastclaw) and I had the temerity to take on Battletome Legion of Grimghasts and got summarily pounded.


I lost to Ben Murphy’s Nagash with a magic heavy Deepkin list (which is now a lot less magic heavy next time it plays....) then I lost to Daniel’s Sacrament plus Ethereal VLoZD List using my Stormcast. The Chocobos may have ridden their last race and spawned Sequitors. Both Legions lists sported 30 Grimghasts....B1088B45-A6A5-423D-A239-5D51085DEC95.jpeg.83b12c15c61601a7c92c8056217bfbb5.jpeg 

7 of us went to #Blackout a few weeks ago - a 100 player AoS event! Simon Fro came 2nd with his Daughters of Khaine which was a great result.



@Age of The Erstwood also did well. The Realm Rules (with some astute filtering) worked pretty well. We’ve sent some suggestion for tweaks and FAQs!

For my part - I came a pitiful 89th with Fyreslayers and an Incantor. They feel wholly outclassed due to a combo of points increases, unhelpful rules changes (not shooting out of combat) and direct nerfs.


John B came first at another Malifaux event at Dark Sphere with Andy 2nd and Leo coming 4th!


Loads of players down across various systems!

Legionary Ben Savva added another 4th place spot (third in a row) at BOBO with his Daughters (also shortlisted for best army). Simon and Marc had some good results too! The feedback from the event has been very positive!


Taking the power stance to a new level

On the hobby front, people are building up new armies esp. Nighthaunt/SCE. I’m painting Pusgoyles, but also assembled my Stormcast and Idoneth armies.
Our sector based campaign is going strong. People have written compelling narratives for their forces and customised their forces. 6-8 forces are taking part, with a mixture of full sized, Skirmish and Kill Team games.
I finally brought out the Termite against Alex’s Drukhari - failing Death Hex was pivotal. Got munched.
People are meeting up Friday @Leonardas for even more games!
Rob Bradley managed a commanding victory over Matt’s Chaos Dwarves to take the trophy!
Slipshod, the Rat Ogre, wondered why he was being taken to a tour of a smelter. 
The Skitz Skatz with their trophy. Sponsorship deals are flying in.
Bloodbowl is such an amazing game! New players are very welcome! 


Nightvault and magic coming soon!
I played James's SCE last time with Fyreslayers. Good fun!
The only way is up for me with my 18 games 14 Losses record. I’m loving the Fyreslayers compared to the Blood Reavers - much more my style. Excited about the new releases coming!
Should be a perfect second game to fit around a main game in an evening. Or you can just play 4 games back to back .
Another fun game:
Simon Fro is leading the charge and starting a campaign soon. I’m doing Van Saar!
John’s Escher took on Matt’s Orlocks for a second time. 
Will be going strong this year and the level of support from GW (e.g. Squat Mercenary and Genestealer Cults in White Dwarf).
@Thanatos Ares
@Marc Wilson

Give me a shout on the forum or post below and I can add you to our AoS WhatsApp chatroom (we broke 100,000 messages recently and counting - I swear fully half of it is John talking about Khorgoraths).

The Hobbit

Huge amount of excitement over the new boxset!

Simon Fro attended ArdaCon for a tournament! 


New armies are coalescing. We’ve just started a Battle Companies Campaign! GW support is awesome here with the new box set and ruleset!
