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. Please bring with you any drinks or snacks that you require.

WAT Dice

A couple of people asked where I got my custom What A Tanker dice...

The reason for the wild dice symbol comes from this quote from a British Tank Commander in the western desert...

“The 75 is firing, the 37 is firing but is traversed the wrong way.  The Browning is jammed.  I am ordering the driver to advance over the A set, but he can’t hear me so is reversing.  As I look over the cupola and see a dozen enemy tanks not 50yds away, someone gives me a cheese sandwich.”

Re: WAT Dice

Thanks Kevin for posting link.

Great games again with you tonight.

Classic donkey walloper tactics with your honey, & great shooting knocking pieces off my panzer IIIG. I just love the model panzer III to the panze IV, that’s why I like to use it.

Are you up the club next Sunday?

Re: WAT Dice

I’d be interested in getting a set of these if anyone is going to order some?
