The club has now reached a size whereby we will be looking to both attend and hold tournaments and other such trips including:
1. Games Workshops "Games Day"
2. Warhammer 40K Armageddon 
3. Hobbit/Lord of the Rings/War of the Rings weekend in the Easter and Summer Holiday 
- let us know if you are interested in attending any of these events (more details nearer the time). 

Please bear-in-mind that pride of place will be given to those with annual membership, as well as discounts on any fees -

Fortnightly (every two weeks) usual times - 3pm-6pm
May - 26th (usual times - 3pm-6pm )

Reminder for those that haven't paid, it is vital that the fees are paid promptly as the majority of this covers the cost of hiring the hall, and if there are any profit is put towards purchasing scenery and battle boards.

New Members can come and try some games for free with their first two sessions.

Monthly £5**

And thank you to those that have paid already!

If you have any problem, queries or questions please feel free to email us.
Anyone who has any suggestions on ideas for the club also let us know.
Due to the plans to run a HUGE Armageddon and WotR / LotR SBG campaign in April (Easter) if anyone is interested in learning to play Warhammer / Hobbit / LotR / 40K also please email us or let us know on club night so that we can arrange a starter battle to help you learn the rules (beginners welcome).

We are about to start playing Hobbit SBG and welcome anyone interested, just let us know so we can arrange some starter battles. We have all the LotR SBG figures and scenery from the Mines of Moria to the siege of Helms Deep.

  1. Good morning,
    My name is Lewis and I am a reporter from the East Grinstead Courier & Observer.
    I am interested in running a feature on the East Grinstead War Gamers for the paper in the run up to Christmas and wanted to maybe arrange a game myself and for a photographer to come along.
    I have never played a war game before so would need some tutoring but that would be another interesting aspect I can include in the article.

    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions:
    01293 597613
    07957 916 910

    Please forward this message to whoever you feel might be able to help.

    Kind regards

  2. Hi

    Thanks for the contact - I have forwarded your details to the club Chairman and Secretary - who will be in contact in due course - we would love for you to do an article and would welcome the exposure the club would receive from thi; the next club day is December 23rd...

    ...although that is likely to miss your Christmas deadline!

    Many thanks

  3. Hi there,

    I noticed East Grinstead has a few LotR/Hobbit players and I wonder if you guys would like to join the newly created UK National League (or Great British League)? I am looking for venues/hosts and players to join the league and attend and organise tournaments. All details are here http://www.thelastalliance.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=6293

    It would be great to have you onboard and run a tournament at your club around June that would count towards the league. The league is run with a hope of bringing more people into our slowly dying SBG hobby.

    Please contact me on TLA, One Ring or my blog (venivididouble1.blogspot.com).

  4. Indeed we do and as you know we have set up a tournament in June!

  5. How do I contact the club?I can't see any e-mail addresses or contact telephone numbers?
