My preamble to the NZTC...

Hey folks,
I'd just like to say thanks to all the new viewers of the blog and thanks to Pete Dunn for the exposure on the Fields of Blood.

I thought I'd have a yarn about the forthcoming New Zealand Team Championship from a purely Nerdymen perspective.
As you may, or may not know, the League of Extraordinary Nerdymen came into being about 6 years ago, to carry the figurative chalice of Warhammer glory.  We spurn almost every non-Gamesworkshop game, fanning our zealot-like-fire for eternal Warhammer prestige with much wailing and gnashing of teeth!

Now charged with a Holy task by He, Jervis our Lord and Saviour we must bring back the NZTC trophy so we may smite ridiculous internet build lists, thus restoring order and Warhammer Equilibrium to the universe.
Somewhere Lord Jervis Johnson cries a single tear for his lost Warhammer children.
However Dark things are afoot....like Judas, one of the Nerdymen has turned coat to British Imperialists, and another has been struck down by a Skaven assassin with a fell blow to his Achilles heel.
Yet darker still is the threat of the Dunnites.  Consuming every tournament in their wake this foul scourge has plagued the wargaming landscape of New Zealand for too long.  Soon Dunnite progeny will beget more of its ilk thus consigning every wargamer in this fair land to perpetual second place (aka a Butlerism)  
This is what second place looks like...
If we can't contain the Dunnites in our fair land of Aotearoa, then the whole world stands to fall....with Butlerisms for EVERYONE....
The Path of the Dunnites...
So by the Grace of Jervis, the Nerdymen must strive for glory or forever live in ignominy.  Using the dark arts of the Enemy we seek to use our foes weapons against them, lest we have the lash of defeat at our backs...

To the Dunnites and Others the Nerdymen say..."Come get some"!

To all the Nerdymen out there, you know your roles!  And I say to you our motto...

"May your children's, children roll sixes (except for leadership tests and miscasts)"

Battle will soon be joined on the 16th and 17th of February....


  1. LOL I think that picture of Jervis will haunt me for a long time!!

    TBF I came it's true because of the DUNNPLUG but I keep reading for the content so give yourself a break as well!

    I am looking forward to more reportage as it happens!

    1. Ha ha thanks for your words pal! That photo of Jervis was the creation of fellow Nerdyman Gray. Consider this the amuse bouche to the entree, main and dessert yet to come....

  2. You attack from the North, We will attack from the south.
    The NZTC trophy must be liberated from middle middle earth at all costs!

    1. One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly.

    2. Nice. Although frodo and the hero of lotr, Sam did just that.....walked into mordor.

    3. Ha ha yeah! And Boromir ended up dead so what the hell would he know!

  3. I dont like the sound of "Butlerism"...thankfully Team O.M.E.N. will reign supreme!

    1. If anyone was to do it, it would be a team that included Joel "Warhammer achievement unlocked" Van Der Ven-Long...
