Absolute zero

I haven't been able to post much recently but just wanted to celebrate the first time that I have got all of my 25mm peasants on the table in one go

The occassion was the Impetus competition at Smoggycon in Middlesbrough on Saturday.  I  managed to get about 150 figues out in 32 units which is quite a lot for a 300 point Impetus game. 

Thanks to Ken and the guys from Hartlepool for organising the event and my three opponents for not being phased in the slightest in taking on my Jacquerie army.

The title?  Well in an Impetus competition the range of points is from 130 to 0.  Guess how many points I managed?

Wargames Clubs and Societies I am (or have been) a member of

I wonder if I am typical or not?


My first club was Washington Wargames Club in 1978.  I have been a member ever since, although the last couple of years as an honorary member

The other club that I am currently a member of is Falkirk and District Wargames Club which I joined and have been a member of since 2001.

In 2000, when working down in Ipswich, I was a member of the Felixstowe Irregulars for  couple of years.

In 2008 and 2009 I was a member of Stirling Wargamers

I have been along to a few other clubs for a game or two but never signed up as a member..


Society of Ancients - from late 1970s for 20 plus years, then a break, a member again for the last 5 years or so

Society of Twentieth Century Wargames - also for the last five years

Naval Wargames Society - three days

I am sure that some people have a much longer list whilst others have stuck with a few good friends in one club or less formal group for all their wargaming life.
