We are a small group of table-top game enthusiasts from across the West Midlands, The Six Up Save boys get together once a week or so to drink beer, talk smack and wage war. We mostly play Warhammer 40k, but we will also be covering games like X-Wing, Dead Man's Hand, Super Dungeon Explore, Sigmar, and Batman Knight Minis.
This blog will (hopefully) follow our exploits across inter-group leagues, local and national tournaments, as well as taking a focused look at our armies, list building guides, painting tips and neat conversion ideas.
We have a diverse bunch of members, some who have been playing for years and some who have very recently started. Some of us are more into the modelling side of the hobby, where others prefer to focus more on the gaming side of things.
Although some of us do enjoy the tournament scene, most of our games are casual, fluffy or narrative led games. It is my hope to post bat reps with pictures or links to our YouTube channel so you can enjoy the stories we create on the tabletop.
Let's take a closer look at our current member roster and their chosen armies:
Charles - (The Beast)
Jack has been wargaming for almost a decade now, gathering the gigantic Waaagh! that is his Ork force. When not watching cartoons, Lord of the Rings or listening to metal, he's always up for a game of anything. He enjoys painting (as much as you can when you have a hordes of boyz) and modelling the big green fighting machines. Now studying at Loughborough University for an Industrial Design and Technology degree, he comes to game whenever possible and is beginning to diversify his gaming repertoire with Dead Mans Hand, Bolt Action and Marvel Heroes.

I am Chris. I've been collect 40K for about 4 years now after taking an 8 year break from the hobby. But I am now fully devoted to Khorne and my Chaos collection is up to somewhere around 8,000 points and growing! I also use Khorne Daemonkin for Age of Sigmar and I have a few Imperial ships for X Wing. I can hold my own against most people in games of cider or tequila. Especially tequila.
