2013 ABF Challenge - Test Colour Scheme

I suppose I should explain the background to this. The North Wexford Gamers organised their first tournament in 2009 in Wexford. The NWG have since developed into The Last Chancers, who are based in the Hobby Shack in Wicklow town, but the tournament has continued every year. Initially a one-day Warhammer tournament, it expanded in the second year to two days and added Warhammer 40,000. The tournament continues to go from strength to strength, mostly due to the excellent work done behind the scenes by the guys behind the scenes. This year's event will be held on the last weekend in September in the Grand Hotel in Wicklow. If you're interested in finding out more, you should check out the Wargaming Ireland forum (

My FLGS, Gamer's World in Dublin, has recently begun to stock a range of products for the Viking Age skirmish game SAGA by Studio Tomahawk/Gripping Beast. I first came across this game last year through the blogs of a couple of friends of mine, Owen Conlan ( and Phil Culleton ( The guys have both painted up some lovely forces for the game, so I'd encourage you all to check them out.
