What are club rules on painted models? I have a majority of mostly painted models but have had to do lots of arm and weapon swaps for 9th ed so not everything is finished yet.

You can play with counters cut from Kelloggs Cornflake packs as far as I'm concerned!

I've never heard of any "rules" from the club about painted figures or otherwise.

Correct. We are happy to see players playing! Nothing worse than buying a new rule set/period collecting minis and painting them, and then finding the game is rubbish and no one else wants to play! As Martin says, we are happy with card tokens, substitutes and stand in figures, unpainted plastic, metal or resin, undercoated, part painted etc...

We want you to have fun!!!

The only times we expect to see fully painted armies are public events and tournaments.

On the other hand, we love to see painted armies, we love for you to show off your painting, and we love to celebrate your skill, we also love to share what we do and learn from each other!

But most of all HAVE FUN!!!!!!
Games Played (Armies): WAB + WaC (IER Roman, Early Saxons and variants, Normans), WFB (Empire), 40K (Spacemarines), Uncharted Seas (Empire, Shroud Mages), WAB English Civil War (English!), Operation Squad (British) SAGA (Normans, Jomsvikings), Mordheim, Wings of War/Glory WWI, Dreadball, Chain of Command (British), Frostgrave, Sails of Glory and many others!!

If there was a club rule regarding painted models I would have been kicked out within weeks of joining. And Dan would never have been let through the door.

Thank you Grahame, noted, and have no preference to troops, just wherever/whatever suits the game best as you see fit.

Cheers, Myk.

To those who know what scenery the club owns - is there a set of wide river sections in the scenery cabinets? I'm looking for something around 6" wide. Cheers.

The club definitely owns a set of wide river sections, and they should be in the cupboards.

Apologies, Grahame, but I won't be able to make this as am stuck with a work deadline.
