Evening,

Im Hope, I've recently taken up painting minis again after about 20yrs away from the hobby, never played 40k when in school, only painted but I am currently painting up Space Wolves and would be interested in learning and playing, I have a basic grasp of the phases etc from reading the rules and watching battle reports, I may just be a bit slow with the stats for weapons and armour rolls etc.

I was just enquiring to see if there are any members who are willing to play in the near future that will have the patients for a few starter games with a noob?

I live in the Oswestry area but work in Shrewsbury.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Hope and welcome to the group .
I don’t , as yet , play 40k as I mainly play AoS and just learning Underworlds .
There are a lot of 40k players in the group however and I’m sure someone will give you a game .
We meet on Friday evening from about 6-30 pm onwards .
                 Best wishes ,
                     Bill

There is no entry fee though we do pay £3 for evenings when we play a game ( your first game night is for free as it’s classed as a taster session) . Parking is best opposite the Abbey ( it’s free after 6pm ) though there is a small car park by the club .

Hello Hope, and welcome! 😁

I haven’t played 40k for a long time unfortunately (but we have a few who still do, who will hopefully chime in to give you a started game or few). I do play a lot of warhammer underworlds, and would be happy to give you a few demo games of that if it something that strikes your interest? It is a hex based miniatures game that utilises a card deck to supplement the core actions of the game. It is very quick and fun to play, but has bags of depth and tactical play also. It’s also great for painters as warbands range from 3-9 minis so you don’t have to invest bags of time painting the same miniatures over and over again.

Here is a decent vid by Games Workshop on what it’s like. Let me know if it’s your kind of thing, and we can arrange to set up a game.

Thank you for the Warband offer, I may take you up on that as I do like the AoS Skaven amd Beastmen minis.
I will post in the game booking section before I come in.

Hi welcome to the forum and hope to see you down the club.
Like all of the above I'm not a 40k player, but highly recommend underworlds, and necromunda is also a great game.

See you at the club sometime soon.

Thank you very much, seen plenty of battle reports just need some practical experience.

Hi and welcome to the club   :) . I'm a 40k player too though I've neglected it a bit in favour of underworlds and necromunda. My new years resolution is to ease back in to 40k with some lower point games,  so we could have a few games maybe to help us both get up to speed with the rules? As others have said underworlds is a great system and low model count/entry cost. Necromunda is great too. Hope to see you at the club sometime.

I'm skeletor!
