  Mid Week Roleplay??
Posted by: Phil Yates - 02-20-2018, 05:11 PM - Forum: General Chat - Replies (7)

No, not the 50 shades of sort but the one using D20s!!!

Karl and I are looking to run some roleplaying games using the online platform Roll20.

Roll 20 is free to use, is browser based (so no download required) but does need chrome of firefox to run (internet explorer and safari do work but you don't get all the features).

No rules knowledge is required.

We plan to run them mid week at times determined by peoples schedules, roughly once a fortnight. 

We intend to run D&D 5E and Call of Cthulhu 6th to start. Probably one shots (the whole adventure completed in one session) to begin with, until people are comfortable with the mechanics.

If people would prefer face to face games we can look into that. We opted for the online option as it makes the logistics simpler.

Let us know if you might be interested and we'll set something up.

All the best

Phil and Karl

Hello Guys,
Just a quick note to thank those members who attended and supported the two games presented by the club at the Beachead show. The club was awarded third place in the participation game catagory for the game displayed whilst both games attracted interest and comment the whole day long.
Thank you fellers, a commendable effort by one and all.
Cheers Kev

  Beachead 2018 set up times ..
Posted by: Lawnranger - 02-12-2018, 07:42 PM - Forum: General Chat - No Replies

Just a quick heads up,

Gamers can set up on Friday between 12 noon and 5pm if they wish, but must use the front entrance of the BIC to do so.

On Saturday morning set up may be done from 0730 and gamers, (in cars only), are able to use the cliff road to access the hall. The show opens at 10am so please aim to have your game ready to go by then.

Please remember that each game is only entitled to four free tickets which will be sorted on Saturday. Any additional players need to pay for a ticket costing £5.

see you all there dave.v

  Penarth Crusade Visit
Posted by: Smithy1854 - 02-10-2018, 11:24 PM - Forum: General Chat - Replies (2)

Hello Guys,
As you all know this show, due to my life membership of the Penarth club, has become an annual visitation by members over the shows weekend. A great time believe me, many reasons direct this statement but the statement is honest.
We presented two games as the show, both well accepted and interacted with the attending public. I thank all those who supported this attendance, a grand effort.
Our 25/28mm portrayal of the Indian Mutiny of 1856 came second overall in the demo game competition, very surprising as we tend to portray games which are achievable by any age or expertise of gamer.
We therefore have been noted in a very professionally presented blog obtainable on the link below;


Looking forward to the next one guys, awesome .

Cheers Kev

Hi all

Looking at getting saracen archers to add to my Norman army to enable them to turn out as an Italo Norman army.

Can anyone recommend figures ranges to buy from?

Time period 1092AD onwards

Hi Derek,
I haven't forgotten that we have a potential FOGA game next meeting, however my social secretary is unsure if I am free (I'm going to advertise for a replacement). I am hoping I will still be free for say 900 pts (as it is an allday meet) of Late Crusaders against your barbarian horde, but I won't know until Monday at the earliest. So if you have any other offers I would take them and I will take pot luck. Either way I will let you know my position as soon as I can.

  FOGAM tournament Winchester Feb 2018
Posted by: Paul Marsh - 02-01-2018, 09:05 PM - Forum: Historical - No Replies

We had a visitor to the club on Saturday, David Bannister, from the Wessex Wargamers of Winchester to let us know about the tournament he is organising once again at their club.

Full details are available on the Slitherine FOGAM forum here:


It is Version 3 rules so if you want to try them out this would be a good place and they don't expect you to have a copy of the rules and the old army lists are being used.

Any questions and you can contact David directly at dcbannister@aol.com
