I’ve added the regular meet-up schedule for the Herefordshire Board Gamers to the gaming events calendar.
I’ve also added the next two Board Game all-dayers. All being well I’ll be attending the September day with some Frostgrave stuff.
Everyone is welcome to pop in!

Alan has sent me some great photos from the recent Flames of War game.
A German force was trying to hold open an escape road for their retreating forces in the face of a massive Allied attack trying to close it.
As for the result; the Germans just about managed to hold the road long enough for their army to escape. But it was in doubt up to the last move, so an exciting game.
THE NEXT CLUB BIG GAME
The next ‘ big’ game at Hereford Wargames Club will be an Amercian Civil War battle using Fire and Fury Rules .
We will play the first day of the battle of Chickamauga, which took place in Georgia on September 19th 1863 between the Confederate Army of Tennessee under Gen. Braxton Bragg and the Union Army of the Cumberland under Gen. William Rosecrans.
Hostilities will commence at 10.00 a.m. on Wednesday 21st June with an all-day game at The Swan, and will continue on subsequent Tuesday evening meetings until game end.
Anyone interested please contact Alan on 01981-540697 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s a message from our chums at the Herefordshire Board Gamers:-
“Herefordshire Board Gamers is nearly a year old, I want to invite you all to our birthday games day and also remind you I started the club to support gaming in Herefordshire so if there is anything we can do to help please let me know. (Within reason )”
There’s a Facebook page for the event (6 July at 18:30–23:30 at the Imperial) at https://www.facebook.com/events/443495249376261
A gaming pal of mine has emailed me with the following:-
My pal Neil is looking to sell his Ogre army. Some of you will remember seeing it at the multi-table Warhammer game we did in Burley Gate a few years ago.
There’s getting on for 2500 points fully painted to a standard I’d be happy with (3 characters, 31 ogres, 4 ogre cavalry, an Ironblaster and a few more models) plus some unfinished stuff.
I estimate it would cost £300 now just to buy the painted models new, but he’s open to offers.
I can sort you out with pictures if anyone is seriously interested.
If anyone is tempted, please contact me and I’ll pass your details on.
Just a quick post to link to my batrep of the VBCW game some of us played last month (having had a practice game at the club – see previous post).
Here’s the link – http://hereford1938.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/spoiling-good-walk-golfing-vbcw-style.html – enjoy!
I’ve been meaning to put this up for a few weeks! There’s a quick report of the practice game we had before the Herefordshire Very British Civil War big game last month on my blog at http://hereford1938.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/saving-buffy-blowhard.html
If anyone’s interested I’ll put a link to a report of the big game itself too.
