Bristol Big'Uns
Welcome to our forums. The Bristol Big'Uns are a group of people who enjoy fantasy, science fiction and historical wargames. We tend to play mostly table-top wargames but you will sometimes see CCGs, CMGs, RPGs or board games. If this sounds like a hobby you currently enjoy then why not come along. The club is based at Iron Acton, between Bristol and Yate, in the recently refurbished Parish Hall and is held Sunday evenings from 6 pm until 10 pm. There are tables and chairs available plus various sized scenic mats and terrain for table-top wargames. There is a 'tuck shop' happily providing crisps, chocolate and fizzy drinks plus tea and coffee at a reasonable price.

Thanks for the tips.  I’m fending off the urge to buy more toy, especially when they look as good as the brigade models ones.  I’ll try and watch some YouTube vids.  It looks like a 3 way game (post lockdown) is very doable too.

I’ve got and skim read my book.  Was wandering about models.  Looked at brigademodels.co.uk and getting a fleet bag fro there range or using my old xwing or drop zone models. ANy thoughts from you pros?

HNY all

Santa brought me  Gaslands Refuelled and I am looking to do some post apocalypse hot wheels cars.  I’ve watched a number of YouTube videos but was wondering if anyone else had done any (Andy? Not sure of online name) or indeed if anyone else had any interest here for when we get back to face to face gaming?

Cheers
