Event Report: Sanguis Extremis Narrative Horus Heresy Event!

Isaac Wright
We recently held our first Narrative event of the new edition of Horus Heresy! 
We had 10 fresh and eager Horus Heresy Players coming together to build a great narrative together!
We had 10 Players come down on the day to complete, Loyalist vs Traitor for the fate of Eidun's Fall!

Players competed against their Traitor/Loyalist cousins in custom made missions that helped paint the picture of the narrative and story of the day. We had such classic match ups as the stalwart Imperial Fists vs the spiteful and relentless Iron Warriors!

Other classic match ups such as World Eaters vs..... World Eaters? With our teams having a loyalist and a traitor part of the legion! They had some old grudges to settle!

In typical World Eater fashion, there are ALOT of drop pods!
The Day in the End was won by the Traitor Forces! With a combined total reaching 111 points to 52 for the loyalists! 
A group photo of our Traitor players on the day!
Here at JustPlay, we would like to thank all the players who attended on the day and hope you all had a great time. We are looking forward to our Sequel to this event that will take place on 24th September! Tickets can be found here

Event Report: Heresy Rising Learner Event!

Ash Gavin

This weekend we held a special event for the new edition of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy!

Horus Heresy players

16 players showed up to complete their training!

The event was geared towards helping our community of Heresy players reach a level playing field of game knowledge, as the veterans of the Long War have had their numbers massively boosted with new players since the Age of Darkness launch.

Helpful plasma backup for when your psykers can't think right.

We didn't have any painting requirements on the day, with the focus being on gameplay and collaborating to get better as a group - but that didn't stop some beautifully turned out models from hitting the table!

The winner was - everyone! But to be fair, John Ball scored the most points across his games while showing us how deadly drop pod assault can be!

Membership Update

Ritchie McAlley
Dear Club JustPlay Member!

During the process of updating our membership pricing at the end of our half price offer, we have become aware of an issue regarding our yearly plan that has triggered an email to be sent out to you asking you to select a new plan. Please do NOT select a new plan right now - your 49.99 yearly membership is safe with us (and you have already paid for it!) we just need to investigate the issue and ensure that it is fixed on our end.

In the meantime whilst we investigate this, your membership is of course still active. You don't need to do anything else.

We'll let you know as soon as we've resolved this problem or if we need to let you know any further updates.

Apologies for the inconvenience and the confusing emails!

In-store Gaming Update

Ritchie McAlley

Greetings to all our players! We hope you're well. We're here to give you an update on gaming in-store at Justplay. Thanks to all your support over the last two years, we have been able to waive our table fees during a difficult covid period, helping us to be here for you through the various levels of lockdowns and restrictions we have all faced.

During this time we have doubled our gaming space whilst adding new mats and scenery. We've now got enough to support 40+ players, playing the popular Warhammer 40,000 and Age of Sigmar on new size tables (no masking tape here!), as well as adding massive amounts of new terrain. 


New mats and terrain


Players looking to play other games can find classic 6' x 4' wargaming tables, and along with our dedicated gaming room this means more space for everyone. We are about to (once again!) replace all of our chairs, and add even more so we can host up to 90 player CCG events in-store! A private gaming space has been also been added. Perfect for D&D, board games or anything you like! Speaking of which, we've also been adding to our board game library for everyone to enjoy.


Our private gaming room, setup for 3 games of 40k


From February 28th our table fees will return, and our upstairs gaming room will become a Members-only benefit - more on that shortly. We will of course still have wargaming tables available on our ground floor for anyone to book and use for drop-ins.

For anyone wanting to drop in and play some tabletop wargames in store, or take advantage of our Board Game library, we will charge a £3 table fee per person, which covers you for a full day of gaming! Or, if you want to book a table at any of our set times, the £6 fee to do so covers you and a friend.

If you are just popping into sit down play some trading card games, roleplay or enjoy your own board games there is no charge.

All of these changes come into effect on February 28th

We are also offering a membership program, which covers all your fees allowing you to game as much as you like. Take advantage of our members only Wargaming Room, free table bookings, campaigns, leagues and early access discount event tickets - plus more benefits to come!

Until February 28th you can grab your first years membership for just £49.99 rather then £107.99 per year - a massive saving of 50%.

We also offer monthly memberships for £9.99, and quarterly membership for £28.49. Your memberships can of course be cancelled at any time.

You can join the membership program of your choice HERE.

Once again thanks to everyone who has supported us over the last two years. Whether gaming in-store, shopping online or enjoying our company we appreciate it all!

We look forward to welcoming even more of you back down to the store for some gaming.

See you soon!

Ritchie & Team JustPlay
