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's February Already

Well somehow January is done and there’s little going on in the outside world, still we are all avoiding the plague, I hope.

Highlights of 2021 so far for me has been helping one of the grandchildren with their maths homework over Zoom. It’s traumatic, to say the least, all these new methods! I also managed my first wargame since lockdown 1, over Zoom with a mate. We used Fleet Commander; a gridded spaceship game (which is no longer in print) but the rules are online and I used pen and paper to represent the universe and my fleet. A great time had by all.

Rules: Fleet Commander: Genesis Rulebook - (

Cheers for now.

If you want to get ahead in life - get an axe.
