isn't that what they said last October?

I`m talking about the new new road just off the old on-going roadworks.

Car parking is excellent and free, enough room for everyone.

Yes sir, it is indeed going to be the new home of cross swords.

We have not heard of any negative comments or criticism of this proposed move and we actively welcome feedback both negative and positive for the venue and any thoughts or comments you may have.

Once again we aim to provide a location that you as a club feel at home and can call your own so your input is extremely valuable to us so we get it right the first time round.

We want to avoid the situation that may occur later on with people not being happy or having negative comments about things not being right or need to be changed from the off, so get your comments and ideas in now or forever hold your piece!!! he he he

Ok chaps and chappettes

Have fun rolling them dice.

firstly with regards to female barstaff im' the one that will be performing staff medicals


then to the matter in hand,
what terrain would you guys prefer fixed terrain boards (diorama style), pick and mix (what we have at the mo) or a mixture of both?
themed boards or generic?

we're in the process of setting out our events diary, what kind of events would you like to take part in? we now have the options for the events teams to organise tournaments over weekends either 1 or 2 days, or carry on the successful weekly format
anybody wishing to run a large scale apocolypse event/ narrative campaign? there is alot of space to use

food and beverage, whats on the menu? Rob F choc mousse is depending on behaviour!!!

what are the lines you want to see in the store?


don't eat at the pub but would want better value for money in the food and drink area!
would like to play on themed boards a mixture of both diaroma and flexible terrain.
i also would actively look to take part in a campaign and like to see intro sessions for other systems, Tom was awesome at getting me into warmachine and chris pearse has got me intrested in dystopian wars
don't eat at the pub but if i were to eat at a weekend something lighter,
and in the store brass rod etched foliage and basing bits

Themed ftw. Only people with no class would choose to play on a generic board.

I follow that statement with a broad apology to most of the cross-swords membership Razz

Be careful not to build many static boards as 40k and warhammer tournaments you may wish to place scenary down in game 1, or edit it for scenarios

Fixed terrain can be cool. I mean I would love to play on this table.



However, pick and mix is the best if you are going to doing tournaments.

As for the bar staff maybe you should hold X-Factor style auditions. I would like to volunteer to be on the judging panel Wink

Neil, I spoke to Ant and he said that there has been a problem with your order. To resolve it, you'll need to pay the admiistrative fee. Please send your birthday vouchers and a cheque for £50 made payable to 'Frugal Dave' to: Gullible Sucker Department, Frugal Towers, PLYMOUTH, PL1

Best Regards

Dave

Yo Jay!! the builders have assured us they will be done on wed, we will use the following weekend to get set up then its a matter of ant and mike giving notice , that said sat 24th still is the intended curtain raiser. we are hoping to host "behind closed doors" sessions and games to iron out any teething troubles .
at the moment we are drafting our events programme, not so much tournaments but if you guys fancy campaigns or apocolypse size battles get ready to book table space!!

Cool!

We normally have a 'Mega Apocalypse' game every year, would be good to have a slug-fest at the Lair!
