MTG Ban Announcement 25th January – Our Thoughts… AKA A Rant About Lurrus…

Yesterday WoTC did their latest ban announcement for Magic the Gathering. In the days leading up to the announcement the community was doing it’s best to predict what was going to happen.

When talking about Modern and Legacy, the two big formats in store, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer was on the hit list for Legacy, and Modern has a host of cards that people wanted to address, the chief of which was Lurrus of the Dream-Den!

Vallejo Liquid Silver and Gold (plus a Tinfoil Mirror)

A while back we ordered in some Vallejo Liquid Silver and Liquid Gold, what we didn’t realise at the time was these were no normal paints and required things like alcohol to thin, as such we’ve not had a proper look at them – until now…

Unlike acrylic paints the pigments hold together better lessening the chance of unsightly brush strokes on the model.

The ‘Good Riddance to 2020’ Ramble…

You’re probably (hopefully) familiar with a Matt ramble by now – basically I dump all the thoughts in my brain onto our website and hope they make sense and that people actually read them…

2020… well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said! (or that doesn’t involve screaming and lots of swearing).

Looking Back…

In short 2020 was a train wreck, although that’s probably insulting to trains if I’m honest (this line, or at least the inspiration for it, comes from “Death to 2020”, it’s on Netflix, go watch it!)

Lockdown 2 – Electric Boogaloo: The Langden Games Update!

It’s November 3rd and barring a massive revolt in the Commons, we’ll be back in lockdown again from Thursday! Fun!!

The one (and only) positive about Lockdown 2 – Back in the Habit, is that it’s the second one! Strange as it sounds, we’ve been through this before, so we have experience of how to operate. As a result the shop may be closed but we can still meet your hobby needs.

Set Boosters – My Thoughts….

Now that I’ve actually opened some Zendikar Rising product, I wanted to give my thoughts on the newest type of Booster, the Set Booster!

What is a Set Booster?

In short it’s a new type of product that lets WOTC have a bit more freedom, in a draft booster there is a need for there to be set amounts of Commons and Uncommons and a good colour spread, the same is not true of a set booster!

They have 12 cards (14 with the token and art card included) in a booster and come in boxes of 30 rather than 36, they are also slightly more expensive than draft boosters, all seeming like negatives so far, but don’t worry there are positives!

Langden Games September 2020 Painting Competition

Here are the results of our September 2020 painting competition. We had hoped to run monthly events however Covid-19 has really got in the way of that, however we did manage to get an event successfully run in September!

Standards in this single model competition have been very high and judging was made incredibly difficult by these fabulous models.

Any of these models could have easily been crowned the winner as each was beautifully done.

Matt’s Annual Ramble – A Birthday in Interesting Times…

‘May you live in interesting times…’, I now fully understand why this is seen as a curse! I know that I, for one, would like the much simpler times where global pandemics were movie plots and social distancing was an unused phrase, but as you all know 2020 had other ideas!

Join us for ‘A Tale of Gamers’

Recently a few members of the community were talking about doing a ‘Tale of Gamers’, and we loved the idea so decided to get involved (it also means I may end up with a full painted army! – Matt).

For those that don’t know a Tale of Gamers is where a group get together and all build and paint a new army over a few months – that’s exactly what we plan to do!

Our Tale of Gamers will commence on October 1st 2018 and will run for 6 months. Continue reading Join us for ‘A Tale of Gamers’
