New events arena in Nottingham 'Foundry Arena'

Postby adlard.matthew » Thu May 02, 2013 12:19 pm

As someone who is looking to get back into the hobby with a more regular habit, one is trying to gather a few more gamers in Nottingham and develop new gaming links.

Brief note, Warg­ames Foundry has had a change in management and the new manager Marcus Ansell has started an open door policy to gamers.

They are starting to clear the floor space and have already got a dozen ga­ming tables available for gamers to make use of.' Foundry Arena'

To quote Marcus ' So: get in touch if you would like to come and run events here.
What we would really like would be to have a regular club group meeting here at Foundry every Saturday. So, we would welcome local gamers looking for a venue to get in touch with us.
Attendance & tea and coffee at all these events is free.'

If you or any of your gamers are looking for some where new to game then this is a free to game arena that has easy access for everyone. At least consider.

other events coming running here.

We are still working on filling our weekends at Foundry with gaming events and suchlike. So far we have the following booked:

On the first Saturday of every month we are running God of Battles games under the auspices of its author, Jake Thornton.

Warhammer Ancients 340BC Battle of Crimissus, put on by Ben Clapperton from Durham University. Saturday 13th July.

Oldhammer - Bring out your lead! 31st August to 1st September.

Will Hannah Foundries old comrade: Sculptor and figure painter Will Hannah, has moved to Nottingham. The plan is for Will to come into Foundry every other Saturday to give a hands on demonstration of how to really paint your toy soldiers. Everyone gets to sit round the table with him while he shows us how it's done.

If this proves popular we may have a go at getting you to come in and actually paint along with Will.
Will is coming in to Foundry this Saturday! (4th May) for his first demonstration. We know this is very short notice; so we don't necessarily expect large numbers of visitors to turn up. In which case we will hold a pleasant little gathering anyway!

Come along and join in.

If my terrible geography is correct thats basically around the corner from tha auld boot pub side of viccy centre beside the giant staples?

I shall let MR6 and LH be aware.(Mr6 (and viper actually) live just the other side of you, Me and LH live miles off)

(I hear the Mondo Comico has gone,whatever maelstrom was calling itself has closed..Some of my friends are using chimera at the mo)

Is the idea of a saturday night something currently open door to see what happens, or are you currently buisness hours only unless it takes off?
(Its also been ages since I parked around there, I remember it being pretty tight..do you just recommend victoria centre?)

Interesting... What games are you expecting/allowing? Only ones you sell, or can we play, say, 6th ed 40k?

Hi Matthew, glad to see you took up my suggestion to post here. I've moved it out of Other News to Anything Goes for now, as the news section is more for figure/game news rather than this sort of thing. Not got another suitable forum here at the moment. I keep meaning to restrict posts in the News forums to long term members as posts from those forums get collated onto the home page ...

You've already attracted the attention of two of the "local" members, the rest of us are scattered around the country, and in some cases the world, but Notts is reasonably central so a bunch of us could end up turning up from time to time. Shame it wasn't Solihull/Birmingham area, would have saved me a drive ;)

Glad people are finding it useful; Marcus has said they are happy for people to play what ever they want to and they have space for everyone.

If people are interested then just mention to Marcus, as he said they would like to have people in every week.

Currently first Saturday of the month running God of Battles drop in an game, try the game, chat to the designer etc. All free.including tea, coffee, biscuits. Bring some fantasy minis, borrow some, try the game etc.

Basically if you need a venue, or place to game hold meeting and chat use it.
