Hi Guys,

Given the number of new people coming to the club I felt we should give them a little sense of the club history.

Below is the trophy that the Northern Knights have won for the second year. This year we faced some great opponents from a total of 4 clubs from the extreme Northern regions of NSW under the banner of the Gosford Gamers Alliance. Note that while they did win it the very first year it is the Northern knights that now hold the trophy for the next 12 months with pride.

We play our friends from the Northern regions twice a year, once at their place and once at ours, in 40K using mostly 1,750 pt armies. The trophy represents the "lighting war" concept that changed the principles of land warfare in World War II. Having said that tthe objective is to have a fun gaming day playing new people with a club incentive as it is a team effort to win the trophy for the club. A number from both clubs have now represented their clubs in all three years of the tournament with overall numbers growing each year.

I'd still prefer if it was an epic scale lightning fighter or something... or maybe even a warhound titan

The three ways of dealing with a BloodThirster.
1. Hide
2. Run Away
3. Bend over and kiss your @rse goodbye
4. Push Mr Robson in the way the bloodthirster will be scared away becuase he will give it a detention for having its shirt untucked

I have said before and will say again that WYSIWYG is, I believe, not meant to be taken literally as WYSIWYG but rather WYSIERFWIIMTRANSGCAABIBTWSTGD.What You See Is Easily Recognisable For What It Is Meant To Represent And No-one Should Get Confused At All By It Because That Would Slow The Game Down

remember every year we play one at home and one away, as the first leg was away the return will be at home.
