AGM Notes 2016

Please congratulate (or commiserate with) Ash, who joins Mike, Carl and Reuben on the committee, replacing Dale. Our thanks to Dale for his help over the past year. We raised £70 for the Battlegames Combat Stresss appeal in a dice off for a copy of Warlord’s Beyond the Games of Antares starter set.

Obituary: Steve Frisby

Steve Frisby was a founding member of our club back in the the late eighties.

He won several […]

Chain of Command

We have semi-regular games of Too Fat Lardies’ platoon-level WW2 game, “Chain of Command” at the club: on Monday we ran an introductory/refresher game for a few people, British vs Germans with a tank each.

Salute 2014

We took a game to Salute this year – specifically we took the “Dead’s Army” game Rob came up with for Halloween last year, featuring hordes of the Nazi undead against the loyal Home Guard of Walmington on Sea. Many thanks to Rob, AndyM, Carl, Chris and Grahame for helping out, both with the scenery […]

Hammerhead 2014
