  Catch 22
Posted by: Mbaverstock - 06-20-2019, 09:12 PM - Forum: General Chat - No Replies

Just seen the first episode of Catch 22 on Channel 4. Bears only a superficial resemblance to the actual book by Joseph Heller but hey-ho, still worth watching. Await the next episodes with interest.

Just a note to say hello. I've been looking for a club that meets to suit my working patterns for a while and yours looks about right! I live about an hour away, but for a longer gaming period it will be worth the travel. I'm in to a variety of things but am trying to limit myself to Napoleonic, ACW, Cold War, Ww2 Desert and 1866. Actually, that's probably too much... I like simple old school rules because I'm old and simple, but I'm willing to put on games and tend to supply both sides (the perils of being moved around). Do you have space for an occasional long-distance traveller?

  Surface Action Naval Wargames Rules
Posted by: duns.scotus - 06-12-2019, 04:27 PM - Forum: General Chat - Replies (6)

Hi all,
I have managed to acquire from Paul Syms, one of the authors of these rules, some new sets which are available from me to club members for the princely sum of £1 a copy (to cover postage). For those that don't know these rules were first published by Paul in the 1980s (I think) and have been championed by Bob Douglas, amongst others, at the club ever since I have been a member. Considering their age they are a very good set of rules and provide a very playable game. The rules cover the period from about 1910 to 1945.
Currently Kev Smith is running a North Sea WW1 campaign using these rules, which Jon Philp, Bob Douglas, Leith Crunden and I are participating in. So if you want to know more about the rules you can ask any of us about them.
If anyone wants a set of these rules please let me know before they disappear off the shelves.

Hi All,

I live in the Waterside area so your club is local but but your meetings have always been on the weekend that I work. From June this will no longer be the case.

I have always had an interest miniature wargaming but mostly sci-fi, grew up with 40K although more recently I have played a little AoS. I am really looking to get into Infinity or perhaps the Batman Miniatures Game.

I haven’t gamed regularly for many years and my painting standard is best described as tabletop, but thought I would reach out to see what systems and how regularly you play them!

  Free War-games Board
Posted by: duns.scotus - 05-13-2019, 08:37 AM - Forum: General Chat - Replies (2)

Hi all,
I have in my possession a number of war-games boards free to whoever wants them. They are mdf (I believe) and have been finished with a textured green surface and have some roads on them. They slot together to make over 9' x 6' and can be juggled around. They are all 30" wide.
The lengths vary. There are 4 of 30x6, 4 of 30x12, 1 of 30x18, 5 of 30x24 and 3 of 30x30.

They are completely free. I am bringing them to the club on Saturday 18th May where they will be on show. If they are not taken by someone or by the club then they will, sadly, be going in the skip. So even if you don't want them if you think someone else might please let them know. If anyone wants to bag them sooner please reply here.

Hi all,
I am going down to see martin Goddard at Peter Pig this Thursday. If anyone wants me to I can collect orders from him if you go on the website and tick the collect from show option in the shopping cart. You will need to drop him an e-mail to advise him that I will collect from his house. Once I have any collected orders I can drop them off (if you live near me in Waterside) or pass them over at the club in May.

  20th April Pirate Sea Actions Anyone?
Posted by: Fat Wally - 04-13-2019, 04:15 PM - Forum: Organise a game - Replies (5)

Hi chaps,

I'll finally be getting to the club on 20th with my son Jack to renew our memberships.

Planning on playing Pirate sea actions using RFCM Pieces of Eight (From Peter Pig) using their 1/450th scale ships.  Simple, fun rules with lots of flavour and character.  I've got all the ships, cloth, scenery etc.

Jack and I will be playing.  

Anyone else up for it?
