October 5, 2019

Welcome to the Weekender, we've got a huge show for you this week, filled with Infinity news, Star Wars references and casual lightsaber duels to get you through your weekend.

A Star Wars Hobby Weekend

With the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker coming in December we thought it would be poignant to schedule a hobby weekend on the Friday 13th of December to commerate the end of an amazing journey we've all experienced, together.

Join us in the Cult of Games over OnTableTop for the first grabs of our event tickets where you can visit us at the OnTableTop studios, hobby with us, game with us and discuss the ups and downs of this great galaxy of movies we've consumed over the years.

Also, what would be the next Death Star?

Obsidian Protocol; What's In The Box?

Justin and Gerry take a moment out of the Weekender set to open up the Sci-Fi giant that is Obsidian Protocol, a Mecha Miniature Wargame set in the near future.

Take on your friends and foes across the tabletop with fully customisable, powerful Mechs with an innovative modular upgrade system to create your own personal, powerful Mechs.
