I just wanted to give a big shout out to my local store/club White Knight Games* and it's impending opening to try drum up some support and spread a bit of word of mouth as they get up and running.
And if I can help them get more customers in, well... I benefit by getting to play more games :)
Now that most of the start-up terrain is done, Steve (the proprietor of the store/club) is going to open on Thursday evenings 5pm-9pm to begin with, to gauge interest in the club (or you can get in contact if you'd like to pick something up) and take orders of miniatures (at a pretty nice discount I'll say), stocking Warhammer, Mantic and more, if he hasn't got it in stock, he'll order it in within about a week.
The club/store is situated in Shipley, West Yorkshire. (not that far from Bradford and Leeds if you're interested) in a shared space under The Drop of Ink tattoo studio (I may as well give them a plug whilst I'm doing this, right?). Just walking distance from the market square and the local train station:
1.Travel By Bus:
There are a number of buses that come to Shipley market square from all over the Braford and surrounding area (one from Leeds too I think). You'd have to figure this one out yourself, I mainly travel by train.
2.Travel By Train:
From Bradford - You can catch practically any train from Bradford Forster Square station. The second stop out is Shipley train station.
From Leeds - You can catch the Bradford Forster Square and the Skipton train. First stop out is Shipley train station.
There are other trains... From Keighley and elsewhere... I don't know... I'm not a frickin' timetable. Figure it out yourself...
The club will running open tables. You want a game of Warhammer 40k or Fantasy, turn up and play.Steve is organising a Necromunda campaign right now, so if you wanna dust off those old gangs (or start up a new one) come over and have go.
The club is going to be pretty accommodating when it comes to gaming. If you're not wanting to play current rulesets/editions. You can come down and play whatever edition you want, as long as you've got your own rulebooks/equipment etc.
That's right! Oldhammer, Bloodbowl, Inquisitor. You want to get a game in but don't have your own space. That's what the club's for. Steve really wants to build up a gaming scene in the area.
As more people get involved, playing at the club, ordering from the store. It can only grow from that point onward. More customers = more gaming. Give him a shout if you want to organise anything.
I myself am gearing up for the Necromunda campaign. I'm going to get a gang sorted out and hopefully have these finished for next Thursday:
Yep that's right. I'm doing some more terrain for the club. Specifically industrial terrain for Necromunda/40k.
I'm hoping to start spending my Thursday evenings down there. Even if I don't get a game in, it'll be a good opportunity to meet other gamers/hobbyists and have a chinwag.
That's it from me for a little while, take care everybody.
