Gaslands Participation Game - Barrage Wargames Show - Stafford - 8th July

Today I've been getting the car cards ready for our Gaslands participation game at the Barrage Wargames Show (Stafford UK) next Sunday (8th July).

The game will be a drop-in-and-play Deathmatch. Select a random vehicle and join in the mayhem until you crash and burn...

The idea is to keep the same game running all day, with a quick turn-around of turns and cars. But to do that we need players! So please pop in and play!

Frostgrave and "Kobolds and Cobblestones" at Hammerhead

COGS will be putting on some participation games at the upcoming Hammerhead Show in Newark on Saturday 3rd March at Newark Showground.

There will be 4 boards in total. Frostgrave will be being played on a 3' x 3' medieval city, a 3' x 3' dungeon and a smaller 2' x 2' dungeon. There will be starter warbands available to be used by visitors, but also the boards will be available for pick-up battles if you want to bring your own warbands. So either play a friend or challenge one of the warbands from the COGS campaign.

We'll also be running intro games of Osprey's new rule-set "Kobolds and Cobblestones". Again we'll have starter gangs or you can bring your own if you prefer. The medieval city terrain used by COGS is featured in all the photographs in the rulebook!

Here are the armies I'm providing:

  • Orcs
  • Kings of Men x2
  • Abyssals

Big Kings of War game at Red on Blue in Nottingham (Robin)

We'll be running one of our massive Kings of War games at the Robin show in Nottingham on Sunday 11th February 2018.

We have 20ft x 6ft of table space for us this time with plenty of miniatures and terrain already available. What we really need help with is players. From experience a game of this size really needs at least 5 players a side.

So if you can help please let me know!

If you have armies to bring as well, then that's a bonus, but it's not a requirement! Also knowledge of Kings of War rules is not needed.

Even if you can't attend all day then we'll be letting passing players help out as well on the day.
