Gravesend Wargames Club are looking for a few good.........

.........men or women!

The nice lads down at Gravesend Wargames Club asked myself and Ray to highlight their club which meets on Wednesday every week, they play a good variety of games and on the whole are a friendly lot (well they did invite Ray), we've been down once already with Postie and will be heading down again this Wednesday (I think).

They've got a great website with all the details and information you need to join the good lunacy that is wargaming!

Some pictures of when we there and some pictures from Broadside 2013, the guys put on a lot of really good games at a variety of shows!

What have you got to lose?

The following pics are from Broadside 2013 where they put on an excellent game.......

Four of the Gravesend boys at our table early morning commenting on Martins shorts or man bag?

Setting up their table, Martin helping with his hands in his pockets..........

Their board with the blog whore Ray in a picture!!!

Some pictures of their beautiful 28mm AWI game...........






Following pictures are from our night at the club............




Excellent beverage making facilities, best cup of tea I've had in a while.........

    5. Stripes slim only when vertical :) but any stripes cover up lots of things - I use it myself :)

  8. I was working with a bloke who sort of does wargaming for real. They dress as Vikings and belt each other with plastic axes. There is a structure to it.
