Not too bad at the moment getting as much practice as possible, there are a couple of match ups i'm not looking forward to but hopefully i can find ways around them. Mission wise I think my weakest may be kill points with a spearhead set up, am looking into ways to improve my chances there.

For anyone heading over to heat 1 of the ToS here's a bit of travel news that you may need to be aware of.

 

The weekend of the 17th & 18th Oct a mass protest has been planned for the area surrounding Ratcliffe on Soar power station which is immediately adjacent to the main road off the M1 (Jn 24) into Nottingham South. I work for one of the local transport organisaions and we've received warnings that there wil be 5000 eco protesters meeting at the power station on the saturday with large numbers congregating at Nottingham Station throughout Friday 16th. Naturally there's going to be an appropriate police presence and it wouldn't surprise me if there were delays around the area of the power station, so steer clear and use M1 Jn 25 instead.

Well coming from Greece,i have no idea where all that is so i'll just say to the taxi driver "Stay well clear of the power station.." ;)

 

 

I still have 1 Rhino,2 Dakka preds and 2 termies to go but with a couple of days off work plus evenings and this weekend i guess it can be done.If i'm not done,i'll just bring my trusty Black Legion.Me and a friend will arrive at Nottingham Thursday night,so we'll probably be at warhammer world most of Friday for warm up games(and a pint or two at Bugman's).

 

Cheers! ;)

Hey IP, I wouldn't bet on it. We've been informedthat there's a good chance that protesters will be on site well into the following week and looking at the info being shared with us by other authorities they're gearing up for a prolonged campaign so to speak (I drove past the site yesterday and the power station is litterally prepping its defences i.e. elec fences, additional security).

 

However, like I said if you use Jn 25 instead of 24 you should be ok although be prepared for heavier traffic as everyone else uses that alternative route as well.

 

If you want any advice as to the best way into Notts to avoid the militant hippies and tree huggers drop me a line.

Hey there DPD, the one thing I would suggest is, if you're coming into East Midlands airport, avoiding the Local train station (East Midlands Parkway) as well and head straight into Nottingham either by bus or taxi.

If you're coming from Scotland then you should be ok as the protest is on the southern side of the city, but like I said if you need an update later next week let me know.

Hey guys, in the event that you are around on Fri afternoon I'll be in the WW store doing some painting pretty much all day Friday.

 

If you want to come and say 'hi' I'll be the guy with the sisters of battle lined up on the painting table.

Just got a e-mail about the event overall.

 

Not looking good for the food side, just most of the food there I can not eat as it can cause me to be unwell (I'm not allergy just some food can badly effect me & make me very unwell I think it would make Nurgle very happy). I did sent off a letter that Andy advice from last year :( Though Souther Frieded chicken I can be alright with on the Sat night.

Just check what Bugman bar has to offer in term of food.

 

Look like people can get games until 10.30pm that Warhammer World on the Sat night, so doombreed666 if we don't get our re-match that the GT, we can alway do it then ;)

 

Hey guys, in the event that you are around on Fri afternoon

 

Yep if all gose to plan, be 2pm time me & my friends get down there. Got a few games arrange :tu:

Dare I count my chickens before they hatch, but I may have secured a ticket to Heat 3! A fella on Warseer is willing to sell me his as he is unable to attend. How much was the ticket again? £55 seems about right to me, he was unsure and had to check?

 

So with a bit of energon, and alot of luck, I will be attending Heat 3 with my Ultramarines! ;)
