Some details on the Tank Commander game, since this isn't quite a participation game (you will need your own models).



Rutherford Weapon Systems proudly presents
Death Machines: Armoured Fighting Vehicles of World War 2
A historical reenactment
A Michael Bay production

We will be using the scenario from issue #2 of Time Extended.

To take part, you will need 2 28mm scale World War II tanks. It doesn't matter what type(s), since these are just 'historic' body-shells on top of Rutherford's finest, top-of-the-line models. Each one will use the standard profile for a tank from the Gaslands rulebook. Tank destroyers and armoured cars are fine, the only requirements are that they have tracks and a rotating turret with a main gun. Any secondary weapons on the vehicles are ignored, unless the player has paid for them (they're dummies, put in place for verisimilitude). Each player has 10 cans to spend on their team, to buy perks, upgrades and/or additional weapons, but not extra vehicles.

Because the whole event is sponsored by Rutherford, and because we're using tanks, you don't get any choice about your team's sponsor.

Because we're using 28mm vehicles, we'll be on a larger table than normal. Exactly how large will depend on the number of players. We'll also be using larger templates,  I'll provide a set but if anyone else wants to bring a set that would be helpful. See the notes on Changing the Scale in the rulebook.

Any questions, just ask.
Current games (and armies) played: Gaslands, Direwolf Rampant, Frostgrave, Bolt Action & Operation Squad (Desert Rats, Communist Chinese, Russians, partisans, Americans, Finns, Italian Paras), In Her Majesty's Name, Judge Dredd Miniatures, Dreadball, Deadzone, Mobile Frame Zero, Uncharted Seas (Orcs), Necromunda (Pit Slaves, Escher), Wings of War (WWI and WWII), Mordheim, Alien vs Predator, Warpath

Current Projects: Brotherhood Without Banners, Jomsvikings, the Blaine Legion, Gaslands vehicles, WWII Danish

p.s. Given the 'historical' nature of the svenario, if anyone has one of these it would be ideal. ;D

Is anyone interested in a 6-point Saga game? I'm going to experiment with Anglo-Saxons. Might not have the levy archers painted before then, though.

Hi Colin I'll give you a game of saga.

Martin, if you can bring in some spare tanks to accommodate people who just want to turn up and play that would be very helpful.

I am pretty sure I completely forgot to sign the sheet and pay last week so I will be making it up this week. (This is also a reminder for myself.)

Dave Brown

I would like to take part in the gaslands tank game, if I can borrow a tank please.

Assuming my brain is cooperating, and I actually make it down

Hi,

New guy here not sure if I should be asking this here.

Is anybody going to be, or willing to, play some 40k? It will be my first time at the club and first game in 8th ed.

Thanks

Elliot
Starting out with 40K

Just a quick note for the Tank Commander game, we've got 6 people already signed up (that I know of) so I think we're going to need 2 tables. Downstairs preferably, for Chris's benefit.
