Next week it’s all gone Full Thrust, with at least one and possibly two games up and running. There may well be some spaces available if you want to have a go.

Napoleonic fleet action

This week at the club, Dickie is running a Napoleonic naval game in 1/3000th scale, featuring the French, Spanish and British. The rules are A+A Game Engineering’s fast play Grand Fleet Actions in the Age of Sail. Alan will be a Spanish Commodore. What could possibly go wrong?

Full Steam Ahead

All the nice boys like a sailor, so this week Dickie is running a 1/3000th scale pre-dreadnought naval game. In addition, there’s the usual Sharp Practice Napoleonic skirmish, no doubt featuring Laurent’s superbly painted French columns against Gary’s Thin Red Lines, with Alan’s Landwehr probably arriving just in the nick of time. It all promises to be a fine evening of wargaming!

english civil war black powder big game

There’s a big multiplayer game of Black Powder at the club this week, with loads of room for players to join in. As usual, it’s the English Civil War in 28mm using everyone’s figures, so expect to see the Scots, Irish and possibly even some Cossacks, assuming Dickie gets any say in the matter (they’ll be the ones with snow on their boots)


This week at the club it’s a return to Cruel Seas, with the coastal forces of the Kriegsmarine out in strength for a clash mid-Channel against the Royal Navy. There will be plenty of action but, due to the set-up, no places to join in. If you want to drop by for a game, there will also be a Sharp Practice Napoleonic skirmish with some space for people to play.


This week there’s an Ancients game of Sword and Spear in 15mm, featuring the mighty Carthaginians and another Napoleonic outing for Sharp Practice in 28mm. There will probably be some room for players to drop in to either game or just pop along for a chat and a pint.


Next week at the club there’s a big English Civil War game in 28mm using Black Powder as the rules of choice. There are plenty of places, so it is a good opportunity to get involved in a big multiplayer club game, which is always good fun, either for Parliament or the King (or possibly the Scots who do their own thing?). As usual, other games will probably be running as well.


This week at the club there’s a big WW II Iron Cross game, with the plucky British PBI taking on the steely might of the Panzerwaffe. It promises to be a hard fought battle, as the Tommies go panzer bagging with their PIATS, aided by their own armoured support. Gary is providing all of the terrain and 28mm figures, so it will be a jolly good show! As usual, there will also be a variety of other games being played on the night.
