Update: The group has a grown to over 160 members since we first started and has evolved past my original scope.
The group is primarily organised via our Facebook group which can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1728899460706021/

Since the start of the group WHW has gotten much more popular and has changed its opening times so that's its open till 10pm Wednesday - Friday and 6pm every other day. The group is now mainly used for pre-arranging casual games with other members. We also have a ladder campaign organised by one of our members. I also have hopes of organising a narrative campaign some day.

If you're interested in an easier way to find new players to play against on a regular basis check out the group.

Original post:

Hi Dakka! This will be the main thread for discussion of developing, maintaining and organising events for a regular wednesday evening gaming group at warhammer world - Nottingham. Currently warhammer world is open to 10pm on a wednesday so it's great for people who are looking for midweek games after work. My aim is to set up a platform for like minded people to be able to find games on a weekly basis and develop a tight nit group of people with the possibility of starting narrative campaigns and the likes you wouldn't usually find in pick up games.

I will be able to make 5.30pm most wednesday evenings from the 19th of October. If people can make it earlier than that, then that's great as long as we gather enough members for people to be able to find games.

There is a facebook group also which can be found here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1728899460706021/ and I'll be cross posting details for those who don't wish to join the facebook group.

Anyone who wants to be a member and even help organise it then you're more than welcome

My days off/work hours change every week but I should be able to make every other Wednesday at 5-5.30 depending on the glory of Nottingham traffic. The main army you will see from me is chaos in most of its glory and some times nids when I want to lose terribly. working late this Wednesday but will most probably be free the week after.

Hey guys.

Recently moved to the University to start four years of postgraduate action, so looking to get involved in the local scene! I only recently got back into 40k via Kill Team. Would you guys be open to playing some games using that ruleset?

Sweet. The rules are like £7, but they're pretty basic and I've got a copy anyway. I can't make it this Wednesday, but I'll try and swing by the one after that.

I've just got back into AOS - ordered my first 500pts of Death which should be waiting for when I get home tonight.

I work not far from WHW and would like to join this group each week once I have the models assembled and painted. I've requested to join the FB group as well, so looking forward to seeing what everyone's into.

Would anyone be up for some Warhammer Quest Silver Tower, or Heresy boardgaming at some point in the future?

Just throwing my support in for this. Been out of the hobby for a little while and it'd be sweet to have a regular group to go with again. Up for going most weeks, entirely dependant on whether my lift will be joining us or not though

"The Wolves will always come to heel when called. In that regard, it is a mystery why they name themselves wolves. They are tame, collared by the Emperor, obeying his every whim. But a wolf doesn’t behave that way. Only a dog does. That is why we are the Eaters of Worlds, and the War Hounds no longer!" - Khârn "The Bloody", First Captain of the World Eaters

It's great to see this! I started 40K about 12 years ago but never actually finished making what i have due to a lack of people to play with, but i'll have to see if i can get it all sorted out at some point. I'll have to buy the latest rulebook and codex as well, though.

Dependant on what army you're planing to play, I'm sure our group has a good variety of codexes they'd probably be willing to share, and we've definetly got a few copies of the rules between us. Won't hurt to just come down, army or not, to get familiar with the game again I'd even lend out my demons if you'd like, but I promise you won't be winning any games with them.

Don't know about anyone else but this Wednesday (tommorow now) I'm/we're good to go. Should arrive there about 6.15ish, unless Madden needs another lift
