Club aims to swell ranks

Angus Wargames Club is on a recruitment drive to attract new and existing tabletop combatatants to its ranks.

The club is holding an Open Day on Sunday, February 8, from 10.30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Boys’ Brigade Hall, Queen Street, Forfar.

Entry will be free of charge and the centrepiece of the day will be a massive apocalypse style game of Warhammer 40K.

The club has been running since 1985 and members play a wide variety of gaming periods over an extensive collection of tables and terrain available for use by all of its members. It has also organised and run the annual wargames show SKELP since 1986, which attracts visitors from across the UK.

Mark Towell club chairman, said: “This is a chance for anyone interested in historical, fantasy and sci-fi gaming of all types to come down to the club, join in and have fun.

“As well as the massive game of 40k, we will have gaming tables and terrain available to bring down their own figures. We are a friendly club running gaming nights on a weekly basis and we’d be delighted to meet new gamers on our open day.”
