Craig and Andrew used the Horse Foot and Guns rules and 25mm Russian and British armies from early in the 18th Century. Vince and David played 15mm DBMM (Ancient and Medieval rules) using Nikophorian Byzantines and Post-Mongol Samurai. Rex and Carl brought along the newest additions to their 25mm Napoleonic collections, Jonathan brought along one of his 40K armies and his DBA 15mm Vikings, and Ross brought along one of his Dystopian Wars fleets. James was there of course opening up and having a good yarn about toy soldiers.
A big welcome to Ed who came along after reading about the club in the newspaper and checking out our blog. Ed started playing Ancients with WRG's 3rd edition rules in the early 1970's and is keen to learn the new quick play rules, DBA 3. Vince will organise DBA games at the next club meeting for everyone keen to learn and have a go. All are welcome to join in. The rules are fun and simple.
Rex and Carl are planning to bring some boxes of Napoleonic figures to the next meeting to assemble and paint.
Everyone is welcome at meetings, even if you are not playing. Come and see what and who is there, bring some toy soldiers to show, do some painting, and talk toy soldiers.
Some pics from the meeting. Unfortunately, Vince left his camera at home so these pics were taken with a phone.
