Club Night at the South London Legion - 29 January 2020.


Recommended Posts

‪Scout move like an Untamed Beast down to the South London Legion any Wednesday for AoS, 40K, Bloodbowl, WarCry, Middle Earth, Necromunda and more!

We are pleased to announce that The South London Legion has a new home - Playnation Games. This is located at Unit 1113, 1117 Whitgift Centre, Croydon, CR0 1UX. This is accessible from the High Street opposite Metro Bank (not from inside the Whitgift Centre). This is between the Whitgift Centre and the Centrale Centre.

This is a central location and readily accessible from East Croydon/West Croydon and other stations.

Club night is still Wednesday. The opening times have changed and are now 5-10pm. Please make sure games are finished and terrain packed away neatly before 10pm.

A selection of drinks are available.



This week!

  • We cheered on Arthur at CanCon and @Age of The Erstwood, Owen Jackson and Matt Gouldesbrough at Heat One.
  • Bloodbowl season is powering forward - carnage everywhere! Draws are for cowards!
  • Adding more scenery!



@Leonardas and his Chaos Team!


Benjamin Savva’s latest creation for the Slaves to Derping


Next week

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.

Winter Update

The Legion is in good shape with new members,  exciting new armies, very solid tournament results (Leo winning Bloodshed in the Shires with Ironjawz!) and excitement over new releases.  We’re looking forward to getting a lot of games in at our new venue over the winter and enjoy some drinks! 


Recently the club has seen good results at The London GT (Leo Rautonen and Ben Murphy) Bloodshed in the Shires (Go Leo!); and monthly War in the Mortal Realms events (Matt Gouldesbrough). 




The highlight of the first half of the year was Blood Tithe - an international team event running for its second year now. A full cohort of Legionaries were in attendance and performed admirably.



The irreplaceable Marc Wilson organised the event - feedback received was positive! Bring on Blood Tithe 2020! I supported Marc behind the scenes but was gutted to miss out - edit - delighted for my son’s birthday!

Ben Savva continued his strong performances - coming second at the South Coast GT and winning 3 one-dayers at the Bad Moon Cafe.






Spot the difference

Other club mates have put in strong performances. Leo doing very well with Dreadwood (bagging a third place trophy) and John smashing up Malifaux events and finding success in his initial forays into Middle Earth! Many of us are looking forward to good times at Heat 3 and Blackout @Chris Tomlin

Earlier in the year, Team Fiction @Leonardas, Leo, @Age of The Erstwood and Alex Kew performed well at the AoS Team Event - getting 4th Place! 

Hobby Corner

On the hobby front, people are building up new armies esp. Slaanesh, Khorne and Gitz.

Warcry Warbands, Bloodbowl Teams and Genestealer Cults also going strong:

Craig’s Death Guard:
Ben Savva attended Vince Venturella’s 2-day painting class in May, with striking results:
I finished my first ever 40K army after purchasing an airbrush - great tool!
Ben Savva’s latest commission finished off Alex Kew’s striking Stormcast:

@Age of The Erstwood Ben Savva finished painting Leo’s Dreadwood commission:


 Craig has nailed his Custodes army:
I showed my true colours: Kudos to Jon Scrivens  @jonscrivens
Jon also immortalised that chariot of fire, that home away from home that we know and love:
Lord Castellant Jimbo and the Battlebus
Comedy corner
Khorne vs Legions of Azgorth! Another close one.
There’s plenty of fresh blood for 40K. Some of us are competing in the Bad Moon League. Two of us are preparing for a one-dayer next weekend at Bad Moon Cafe.
Seb’s Guard
John commanding the Blood Angels!
Rob Bradley managed a commanding victory over Matt’s Chaos Dwarves to take the trophy!
Preparations are afoot for the 2019 Season brought to you by Bloodweiser.
Bloodbowl is such an amazing game! New players are very welcome! 

Warhammer Underworlds (Nightvault)

We had a great time at a recent tournament hosted at the club and kindly organised by the delightful Matt from GW Croydon. 

Excitement over the Latest box set and scenery!

I have a ludicrous number of Escher models from my GSC army!
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 Ican add you to our AoS WhatsApp chatroom (we broke a quarter of a million messages recently and counting - I swear fully half of it is John talking about Khorgoraths).

Middle Earth

Simon Fro has a great time at Throne of Skulls!


Huge amount of excitement over the new releases!
