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.

It doesn’t seem like a year Kev but as you said it must be, you have been missed.
Here’s hoping 2021 is a better year for you dude, you Certainly deserve one.

Club Discussion » Merry Christmas and Happy New Projects for 2021 » 14/12/2020 11:28 PM

Plenty of projects to keep me busy next year I think .

Going to continue on with my 6mm projects, ACW to get to Gettysburg level, ECW finish Lansdown then move on to Roundway Down plus I want to try out a bit of Colonial gaming especially now I have loads of Zulus to paint.

On the 2mm Napoleonic front would like to get at least 4 small forces plus terrain to play the 2 by 2 rules then see if I can take it up to Blucher level.

28mm wise, finish my KOW Orc’s, Nightstalker and Twilight Kin armies plus my backlog of Dreadball teams.

That seems a fair bit to keep me occupied and I’m sure there will be more stuff at least started .

Arranging Games » UPDATE: Hall reopening » 14/9/2020 10:36 PM

Here is the message we’ve received from the hall provider.

Hello everyone

I thought I would update you following this weeks announcements from the Government regarding Covid 19 restrictions. The advice we have received is that because the Parish Hall is regarded as a Covid secure building, following the precautions we have in place, we are able to continue with our meetings. 

Please make sure you adhere to all regulations so hopefully we can continue with our limited bookings.

Many thanks for your cooperation and continued support.

Kind regards


Arranging Games » NO CLUB THIS SUNDAY 13th September 2020 » 11/9/2020 12:08 PM

I will no be attending club for the next 2 Sunday’s as my Mrs is having to self isolate due to an outbreak at her school, she is fine and has no symptoms as am I and I am still working.
Even though I could attend I do not feel comfortable about doing so, so have made the decision to stay away.
After the issues we had last Sunday and with Dave also not able to attend we decided that we would not go ahead with this Sunday’s meeting.


Arranging Games » RE-OPENING Report » 20/7/2020 8:44 AM

Everything seemed to run smoothly, clean down went well and we were all out by 9.30pm.
Really great to see everyone in person and to roll them bones again 😉👍😎.

Arranging Games » UPDATE: Hall reopening » 09/7/2020 7:10 PM

We will be able to use the terrain area but not the kitchen or bar.
Our terrain will be fine to use as we are only using it once a week and the C-19 virus can not live on these type of areas for more than 48hrs I think Dread said?

Arranging Games » Greetings Big 'Uns » 07/7/2020 10:25 AM

Hopefully but we’re still waiting for clarification from the hall provider so we maybe pushed back a week 🙁.

Arranging Games » Greetings Big 'Uns » 06/7/2020 10:33 PM

Hi mate,
Nice to hear your doing ok in these difficult times.
Your always welcome at the club, once a Bigun always a Bigun 😉👍😎.
Cheers, Steve.

We need to think about how we are going to deal with money transactions on a club evening.
I think we will have to stop the tuck shop until further notice and ask people to bring their own snacks. As for sub we could ever ask people to bring the exact money and drop it into cash box  or maybe a cash transfer at the end of the month?
Thought gentlemen?

Club Discussion » Lockdown Projects? » 02/5/2020 9:42 PM

Been pretty busy myself during the lock down.Was working until Wednesday this week but now home in isolation due to cough 😷, no other symptoms but work wasn’t taking any chances.
Done plenty of painting including group sessions  with other Biguns over messenger plus some Kings of War 6mm over FaceTime with Ed all have been great fun.
Anyway Keep safe everyone.

At the moment I’m going to hold fire on this as I’m pretty busy myself for at least the next couple of months.
May have a look at starting this later in the year if people are interested?
