Its here! A long time after this blog began, welcome to the 500th post on ToaTS!
It has been one hell of a journey to get this far. So many models, so many games, a load of events and tons of new goodies. It has been a really fun journey though.
I would like to say a massive thank you to all of the readers, followers, viewers and random clickers. If it wasn't for you all I doubt it would have made it this far. Hope you have enjoyed what you have seen so far and there is a LOT more to come. (Even if that 'real life' thing has happened over the last few weeks)
What can we do to mark this milestone? How about a giveaway!
Antimatter Games have been awesome and given us
10 PDFs of the Deep Wars Rulebook to give away to you lovely readers!
Mantic Games have also been awesome and given us 2 copies of DreadBall Kick Off edition and 2 Signed Art Prints!
You can see what is included in the DreadBall box HERE
If you want to get your hands on one of these and check out the very unique games, all you need to do is write a comment! A suitable comment though along the lines of Deep Wars or DreadBall. Sci-fi, sports, underwater, steam-punk, old ones, that sort of thing. The more imaginative the better.
Just leave your comment at the bottom of this post or under the link to this post on the ToaTS Facebook Page (link)
On June 15th we will pick 14 random winners from all of the comments and post the names up here. You will then have 2 weeks to claim your prize.
I will leave you with a selection of the stunning underwater and sporting models from the games.
Congratulations on the milestone. As a ole for f rules systems, I'd be interested to read these unique, exciting underwater steam punk rules.ReplyDelete
And dreadball? Yes please!Delete
I was so tempted to get into this, sadly I was out of money for both kickstarters and then I had issues with paypal so I haven't been able to grab a copy... so who knows, I might get lucky and finally get the final push to build a Cthulhu underwater temple :)ReplyDelete
I've been interested in this game for awhile now....And I've built an airship (steampunk reference) https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.289607337756418.95068.280260902024395&type=3ReplyDelete
That's very coolDelete
Congrats on 500! Deep Wars looks awesome. That's the one kickstarter I very-much regret missing out on. Glad to see they are doing well and you have been keeping the blog going. Keep up the great work! Maybe someday I'll get take the dive into Deep Wars.ReplyDelete
Congratulations chap! 'That is not blogged can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even laptop batteries may die...'ReplyDelete
I already have one Dagathonan Salvager at home for my Carnevale band, but reading the whole rules of Deep Wars would be awesome! You know, you never have enough fishy friends at home :PReplyDelete
At the turn of the tide this appeared from the murky depths. Looking to splash into new games after a certain citadel company has embraced the briney mistress. (Basically giving up on GW for good :( )ReplyDelete
I'd love to read the rules on this and get into it. It's Fishmen and Steampunk and well fishes! What's not to love?
Congrats on the 500! Count me in for the drawing, this game caught my eye and I would love to read up on it more.ReplyDelete
Big congrats on the 500th post!!ReplyDelete
Deep Wars is something I've been looking at for a while. The miniatures are all pretty amazing and rather unique in the hobby, something seldom seen. I'd love to see how the game plays.
Best of luck Hendy on the next 500!!

Nice one on hitting the 500 posts. The only thing I don't understand is how they shovel the coal in underwater.ReplyDelete
Its more 'crystal'-punk.Delete
I have to confess that when I first heard about Deep Wars, I thought it was a stupid idea. But apparently I was in a minority, and would live to find out what the fuss is about. I love the SOBH architecture so maybe I'll have to give it a go eventually.ReplyDelete
We should definitely sort out that painting-by-Skype thing at some point when the little badgers allow.
Oh yes. You will get me painting one day.Delete
Well done and congratulations! Hear, hear, old bean! Hurrah and such. I am in on desiring one of these pdf's, because a physical book would get wet when I play the game underwater.ReplyDelete
That can be a problem.Delete
They do have some lovely models, and after some bad KS starts, I have to hand it to them, they stuck with it and got some stuff sculpted and done.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on 500 Posts. I be needing me a copy of dem rules to get me another submarinie goin'. I lost me last one when we tried goin deeper than the furnace pipe allowed.ReplyDelete
Congrats and would be rude not to be in with a shout of free rules :DReplyDelete
Or if you are under water gupple gupple gubble gubbble POPDelete
I think the mixing of underwater and steam punk actually are perfect. DeepWars took this idea and expanded upon it in such an amazing way! Love it!ReplyDelete
A quick update that I will add to the main post when I'm home.ReplyDelete
The awesome guys at Mantic Games have just offered us 2 copies of DreadBall Kick-Off edition and 2 signed art prints to add to be giveaway!
Huge thanks to Mantic.
wait, so does that require a different entry then?Delete
Nope. One entry will get you entered for everythingDelete
Congratulations on the milestone post.... As a longtime fan of Cthulhu mythos, steampunk, and skirmish games Deepwars was something I desperately wanted to back but did not have the cash.... The rules just might draw me in... and I need a reason to get more miniatures....ReplyDelete
Congrats on the 500. I'm very interested in this rule set. Wondering how (or if) they address swimming in the rules. I have never seen this game setting before.ReplyDelete
Just played my first Dreadball games recently. I was impressed. Coming from BloodBowl, I wasn't expecting it to compare. But it definitely stands on it's own. Please count me in for the prize draw. That would be awesome to score.
Swimming is handled really well. The whole game is fully 3D with models able to move high above the table.Delete
Every time I see this game, it makes me wish I could get that tentacle graft I always wanted. As an Aquarius, I also find the game appears to have everything it takes to be a great game, Steam Punk Jules Verne vibe, Cthulhu stylings and tentacles. Everything is better with tentacles...... everything.ReplyDelete
as an aside, anyone know how big The Abyssal Gark is?ReplyDelete
cause I'd like him to be in my CSM army, as I have a Helbrute converted to look like him.
The Gark is abut the size of a Terminator.Delete
There is a large Dark Mariners Bioconstruct that would work well though.
Congrats on the 500th post! My gaming blog made it to 2!ReplyDelete
Thanks for all the congrats people!ReplyDelete
DreadBall has now been added to the post.
Five hundred posts is quite the milestone, congratulations! :)ReplyDelete
gratz on the huge milestone, 500 posts is very impressiveReplyDelete
I think Dreadball could be a better Bloodbowl and while I played once I am intrigued. Deep Wars looks interesting though I will withhold judgement until I get a better understanding.ReplyDelete
Consider me commented.ReplyDelete
Good to have you down at the club last night, thanks for the heads up on this - here's a comment, to go towards winning a copy of Dreadball for the TAGS club :-)
It was a great night. Thanks for having us there and I hope the games went down well.Delete
Congrats on the 500th post! Big achievement! Just like winning a game of dreadball will be against my nemesis.. BuRock! Keen to see how those rules pan out, same with the Deep Wars set!ReplyDelete
congratulation, 500 is a pretty big number!ReplyDelete
Geez 500 posts gosh, congrats there.ReplyDelete
Huge respect fella, 500 is a lovely milestone.ReplyDelete
Congrats, would love to be entered into this. In fact, I'd dread not to be in...ReplyDelete
Hendybadger scores a touchdown with this awesome giveaway and milestone! I would love a copy of Dreadball! Hendybadger is my MVP!ReplyDelete
I know this is a random draw, but if it wasn't you would have won EVERYTHING!Delete
Wow, 500 is quite a feat! I've been blogging for four years and I'm only up to 265. Haha!ReplyDelete
Congratulations! Thanks to you I can be in touch with any news of this hobby since I became father. Hope I could keep following you after my second child is born next month LOLReplyDelete
Becoming a dad does change your hobby a lot.
But it also means you can bring up your own little gamer!
Our second one is due Dec 7th.
Awesome looking figs, a must have by the look of thingsReplyDelete
500! That's immense, congratulations!ReplyDelete
Congrats on the big 500! Deep Wars has definitely piqued my interest, especially the large scale beasties (and mecha-beasties!)ReplyDelete
If you like the large scale stuff, check out the latest WIP of the Giant Angler FishDelete
Congrats man. You know Ive been following you for a while now all through your Warmahordes phase and back, and Im happy to see your posts every week about the "little" games... specially in miniatures count!ReplyDelete
Ive been slacking recently but looking forward to see who the lucky winners are. Nice toys all around.
Warmahordes could be considered my gateway into all of these smaller games.Delete
I may even go back to it one day. But for now the supers, sports, seas and space are far too much fun.
Hope you have enjoyed it so far and thanks for sticking with the blog for so long.
Ooh - would love a dreadball kit. I was initially in on the kickstarter but had to drop out due to money (or lack thereof).ReplyDelete
I was the same but it just took one game to get me hooked and picking up every bit of it.Delete
Great work on the blog. Always good to see people post and supporting games like Deepwars!ReplyDelete
Deepwars is a really neat game! The rules are a little confusing at first, but once you figure them out the game is a blast!
There are some smaller games out there that deserve the push. Awesome games that a lot of people would never know about otherwise.Delete
My plan is to change that and get the awesomeness into the public eye!
Would love to get my grimy paws on any of these prizes especially a dread ball set. Great blog as always and keep up the great work.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the 500 posts :) here's to the next 500! Missed out on the dreadball KS and have been meaning to pick up a copy since its release, just not gotten around to it :(ReplyDelete
Well done on hitting that 500th post!ReplyDelete
Congratulations sir! 500 posts is quite stellar! Either of these would be great to add to my ever growing stable of soldierdoll games!ReplyDelete
big hit! congratulation! let me in .....ReplyDelete
Congratulations on the 500th post :)ReplyDelete
Here's to 500 more! keep up the good work :)ReplyDelete
Congrats on your 500th. Epic dedication!ReplyDelete
Keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
Congrats on the big 5-0-0!ReplyDelete
Well done on the 500th :DReplyDelete
Thanks for all the thanks people.ReplyDelete
It has been a long ride of ups and downs as well as several game changes. But it has been fun and seeing this kind of support just makes me want to keep going even more.
Congrats on the milestone, sir!ReplyDelete

I want some freebiesReplyDelete
Something smells fishy so im just going to go balls out on thisReplyDelete
Congrats Ian! Now where's my free stuff? :)ReplyDelete
Must have been lost in the post :PDelete
Three more days.... I'm so excited! The more I look at the Deep Wars stuff, the more I'm getting hooked. (see what I did there?)ReplyDelete
That's great or terrible! HahaDelete
You had me at 'free'! :) But seriously, Deep Wars looks very cool, and Dreadball is a lot of fun. I've only played it once as it's my friend that owns it, but I did post my initial thoughts on the game on my blog. Hope you don't mind a shameless plug? http://colourofwar.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/fast-and-furious-dreadball-in-nutshell.htmlReplyDelete
Plug as much as you like!Delete
Hmm, I could convert one of my 250 l aquariums to a really cool Deep Wars setting... or maybe not...ReplyDelete
Dreadball, yep, always good with new plastics in the mountain.
Comment comment comment!ReplyDelete
Just getting interest in Dreadball, seems to be the new upstart among gaming buddies. Think I'd right like to go Dwarves.

Congrats on the 500th, quite an accomplishment!!ReplyDelete
Love the fact that you cover multiple games. Makes an ADD gamer like myself feel at home. ;)
Dreadball's starting to take off in our area and another pitch/set would make demoing the game sooo much easier, fingers crossed.
I try to cover as much as I can but I'm still limited by time, space and money.
I hope the ones I have chosen to focus on interest several people though.
Grats and keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
