About Me

Hi Folks, I've been playing Warhammer Fantasy from early days, although have just gotten back into it after being absent for a number of years. This blog is to record thoughts and experiences from amongst myself and friends. Personally, I am currently working on Orcs & Gobbos and also have High Elves, Skaven and a few Warriors of Chaos. Amongst the other chaps we have every other army covered. We are not die-hard competition gamers, but enjoy the game for the social aspect as well as the hobby side of collecting and painting.

Casual game size?

Hi folks, a query regarding game sizes that are popular amongst you all for friendly matches. The chaps I play with all have young families so the majority of our games are played at night. And tournament games are only a few times per year. Typically, our casual game size is 1500 points, with the odd 2000 or 2250 (common tournament size here) left for weekends where our good lady wives tolerate us arriving home in the early hours :). Because our games are very social affairs even a 1500 point affair can take 5 hours (don't laugh...there is usually some serious social chit-chat taking place).


  1. I like to mix it up. 1000, 1600, 2k, 2500, 2800, 3k, 4k are all pretty common for me. Depends on mood...lately, I have wanted to include a dragon which means larger games. Soon I will be back to working on Beastmen and high Elfs...so smaller games. How is that for no help at all? :0(

  2. Lol..appreciate any feedback. Yeah we tend to mix it up between 1500 and 2250 usually, with bigger games (sometimes multi-player) on a rare occasion when the hours are available.

    Beastmen eh? Nice. I too will be getting back to the High Elves once the Greenskins are sorted - we'll have to swap ideas :).
