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.

Getting rid of stuff

I have been diagnosed with terminal cancer and the doctors best guess is that I have around 6 to 9 months to live.   Over the years, I have collected and lost a wide variety of paints, games and models and realise I won’t need them where I am going so once I sort through the lot I will put a list up.  All stuff free but donations to a cancer charity welcomed.

Things I know I have...
Loads of Carnevale models and scenery
Warhammer 40K - I subscribed to the recent magazine thing and most are untouched.

Re: Getting rid of stuff

As I posted on your Facebook page fi there's anything we can do as some form of game or activity then let us know. I appreciate that due to the timescale you have some other priorities on the list and I hope you Gert as many ticked off as you can.

I will run some fund raisers for the charities you noted on your webpage once its practical to do so. Did a few things similar in the past and want to do so again. 'Wargamers Against Cancer'  

I might take an interest I the Carnevale stuff but I best take a proper look at the rulebook you let me have first

Thanking of you.

Kind regards
