I think I have to agree with Nick about the signature.

It feels a little like a mis sell.

We don't have a huge gaming area and we don't play almost any system. In fact we are quite limited on both at moment. I'd go a little subtle, something like

"Ask we about Warpath Wargames Norwich or join our forum LINK to find out more"

Oh plus its not Essex Road, it's Wessex Street

As I've said previously it is my intent to introduce you all to Flames of War. I'll be honest this is a very selfish introduction I just want to actually play it rather than simply paint the models and read to books.

Anyway what I'm going to do is paint up a pair of 1000pt armies from a single campaign book that introduce nearly every element of the game (the only major ommision is air support/AA weapons but they can be very complex). The book in question is Hells Highway which covers the battles for Eindhoven and Nijmegen that occured during Operation Market Garden.

The briefings (FoW army lists) I have selected from the book are a British Guards Rifle Company (Irish Guards to be precise) and the German 6. Fallschirmjäger Regiment (basically German Paras). I went for these two because they allow me to create well balanced armies at a low points level (something armoured lists are bad at) and aren't too difficult to use (unlike armoured car/recce squadron lists).

Here's the actual lists for those who are interested.

Irish Guards Rifle Company: 1000pts

HQ:

Company HQ: 40pts

Combat Platoons:

Guards Rifle Platoon: 185pts
3 Squads

Guards Rifle Platoon: 185pts
3 Squads

Guards Rifle Platoon: 185pts
3 Squads

Brigade Support Platoons:

Guards Armoured Platoon: 285pts
2 Sherman V, 1 Firefly VC

Support Platoons:

Heavy Mortar Platoon: 120pts
1 Mortar Section, PIAT team

6. Fallschirmjäger Regiment: 1000pts

HQ:

Company HQ: 80pts
Panzerschrek team

Combat Platoons:

Fallschirmjäger Platoon: 250pts
3 Fallschirmjäger Squads

Fallschirmjäger Platoon: 250pts
3 Fallschirmjäger Squads

Regimental Support Platoons:

Fallschirmjäger Anti-Tank Gun Platoon: 230pts
4 7.cm PaK40

Panzer Platoon (Hermann Göring Division): 185pts
1 Panzer IV G (late), 2 Panzer III L

As you can see the lists both contain some infantry, armour and support elements. I can't really set a date for when I'll be able to start running games as I've got a lot of stuff to paint (221 infantry figures, 6 tanks, 4 Pak40s with crew and 2 mortars with crew). I'll probably make a start over the weekend though. I'll take a photo of the pile of stuff needed for those two armies at some point too, it's pretty big.

I'll put this lot in a thread on our own forum too.

I haven't signed up yet as I can't from work due to the verification box, something to do with the work set up.

I would however ask, and I don't want to sound like an arse, to remove the WARPATH Logo. As Nick pointed out it is a law suit waiting to happen and I'd rather avoid the club getting involved in one of those. So I think I will have to decline joining until it is removed and as the founder, treasurer and secretary of the club I can not condone it as our clubs forum until then.

Sorry Woodbok I know you put a lot of work into it.

Hmm not sure about that, afterall I am the GM and since I live in Wymondham I can't really be sure that I can get into the city all that often (Mondays and Thursdays aside) until I get a car which will be after I've got through my probation period at work (3 months).

I've made a thread in our club news about it, and how it can be improved.

Woodbok that’s brilliant man, well done with trying to sound condescending you a very talented young chap. Oh and I’ll bring your Necron codex back tonight as well.

I think we should keep Dark Hersey at the club, people popping in an out will be at Nick discretion as he is the GM and putting a lot of work into it so it is only fair he calls the shots. A character holiday function might be a good Idea though as I don't want new members turning up with no one to play because we are all busy playing dark heresy.

I'll bring 1000 points of beastmen tonight, need the practice.

Right so we've how had the first DH session and to be honest from my perspective it was a failure. I'm not going to blame any one in particular but several of you repeadedly talked over me while I was giving you vital information, this made running the game extremely frustrating.

In future if you want the game to flow better please keep quiet when I'm explaining something. In addition I do have some other concerns:

1) Certain players were behaving in a way that annoyed others. If this keeps up I will not hesitate in kicking you out.

2) 10 players is simply too many for me to keep track of in addition to NPCs. So either we lose a few players or I split the group in 2 and run 2 separate games.

3)We have some underage players in the group which gives me a content problems, a lot of the content of this game is simply unsuitable for those under the age of 18. How we solve this issue is up to you lot.

From running D&D I can tell you 5 PCs is usually the upper limit for reasons you've highlighted.

Your the GM and you are kindly running the Dark Heresey campaign. You have my full support in any actions you feel are needed to run it properly including a reduction in the number of people taking part.

If we could have a few volunteers are don't mind sitting this one out it would be appreicated.

I'd personally like to continue however I am willing to step out in order to get the numbers right.

Considering if I can get my hands on the books and how well the current game I'm in goes I may do Rogue Trader if anyone's interested?

Also, I'm going to try and make it down next Monday.....would anyone be interested in a small Warmachine game?

I would be but be aware that I basically don't know any rules, I can do 15pts at most.

Warmachine and Firestorm next week will be pretty sweet.

Yes woodbok I am thinking about you (plus James and Zak), it's not so much whether you're fine with the content but more your parents reaction to you being exposed to it. The last thing I want is for my running of DH to cause problems for the club.
