Marcus the new manager of Wargames Foundry has made clear that they want to be more focused on gamers and opening the space they have. With this in mind they opened up the entire shop floor space for gamers to take advantage of, and with the number of gaming tables becoming available there its the start of something big.
With that here’s whats coming up or currently running @ Foundry Arena
First Saturday of the Month 4th May, 1st June, 6th July, 3rd August,etc
God of battles drop in gaming days. 10 am till 4:30pm with Jake Thornton the designer. All free, with tea, coffee and biscuits.
We have a Warhammer Ancients battle here on Saturday 13th July, put on by Ben Clapperton From Durham University, who is going to refight the 340BC Battle of Crimissus.
On the 31st August and 1st September we have a fairly large event with perhaps fifty or so Oldhammer fans celebrating the 25th anniversary of the publication of Warhammer Realm of Chaos. The Oldhammer movement sprang up a year or so ago. It’s enthusiasts continue to play Warhammer Third Edition. They have some very impressive websites between them, and all of them seem to paint to a very high standard (a higher standard than anyone was managing 25 years ago).http://realmofchaos80s.blogspot.co.ukhttp://bloodforum.treps.net/index.php
So far they will have 25 tables to fight Chaos War Band against Chaos War Band, and they will have one big table where they can all battle chaotically together. We plan to provide them with a bar and food.
So: get in touch if you would like to come and run events here.
What we would really like would be to have a regular club group meeting here at Foundry every Saturday. So, we would welcome local gamers looking for a venue to get in touch with us.
Attendance & tea and coffee at all these events is free.
