Warpcon 2014 – DreadBall

 p1258575

Warpcon” has been my local con since my school days.  I have attended the majority of times that the event has taken place over the twenty four years that it has been running.

In addition to playing a few casual games with old friends, I often try to run a game/tournament of something at Warpcon to keep me busy.  With 2013 being the year of DreadBall at Chateau Sho3box the obvious choice this time was to run a day-long DreadBall tournament. Continue reading

Custom DreadBall Pitch

WinnersDBPitch2013

The O.C.P. Patriots (Irish DreadBall Champions) play defence versus the Zegema Beach Zephyrs (UK & Ireland Ultimate DreadBall Champions) at Thomond Park at some designated point in the future.

I am the current Irish DreadBall Champion.  Mantic supplied me with this prize pitch as a rather nifty functional trophy.

The rigid one piece polycarbonate/aluminium laminate (at least, thats what I think its made out of) arrived yesterday along with a large box of miniatures as a prize for my UK & Ireland Ultimate DreadBall win a couple of weeks ago.  I havent had a chance to play a game on the pitch yet but I hope to remedy that over the Xmas break.

Of minor note is the inclusion of “Thomond Park” on the pitch (top right in the ropey photo above).  Thomond Park is a significant Irish rugby stadium that also hosts the Irish DreadBall Nationals, amusingly enough.  To continue the entertainment value of winning a “sporting” event at Thomond, I asked Mantic to make sure that the stadiums name featured on the pitch.  I havent the slightest interest in rugby, but many of my regular opponents do, so it adds another level of amusement to me being the champ of a “sport” crowned at Thomond 🙂

Lead Belt Trip

I traveled to Nottingham the weekend before last to go to the Mantic Open Day and play in – and win – a DreadBall competition.  As I was in “The Lead Belt” I also squeezed in a couple of visits to other toy soldier places.  A visual record composed of ropey phone-photos follows.

Lovely miniatures in Foundry Cabinets.  They make me want to snap all of my paintbrushes.

Nameless Spawn – DreadBall Giant/MVP

Nameless Spawn

Nameless Spawn

My first DreadBall Giant figure is this guy, a Nameless (as in the DreadBall/Warpath/Deadzone faction) Spawn that I finished over the weekend. He doesn’t have a proper name.  Im leaning towards christening the big fella “Lester”.
