Mecha Monday : Pacific Rim Uprising



John Boyega (Star Wars series) is the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity's victory against the monstrous "Kaiju." Now an even more fearsome alien threat has been unleashed on the world and Jake is called back into action by his former co-pilot, Lambert (Scott Eastwood), and a 15-year-old Jaeger hacker, Amara (Cailee Spaeny). Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

End To The Cold war



At the Reigate club we have been keen WW2 players for many years and were looking for something a bit different and we designed a few scenarios that assumed war had broken out between the Soviets and Western Allies in 1946. One game involved the liberation of Poland. Being inveterate kit builders we began to look at modern tanks etc and one thing lead to another so we decided to stretch the “Poland idea” a bit further, into the 1970s/80s. 1/76th and 1/72nd modern kits were purchased and over a year substantial forces were built up (approx 200 tanks and APCs and many planes and helicopters). Using the fictional background a more varied mix of tanks and aircraft etc can be used, great to get those keen kit builders involved!

Had this up before but I need some inspiration!  End Of The Cold War

Mecha Monday: Top 19 Anime Series With Giant Robots



When one thinks of Japanese animation, odds are one of the first
things that spring to mind are images of giant robots destroying
cities and fighting each other.

While that's hardly the summation of the entire anime genre, there
certainly are a variety of anime series and movies that do contain
just that. Here are our top 19 anime series and movies that contain
robots doing what we love best.

GZG SUMMER SALE

UPDATE - SUNDAY 15th JULY 2018:

SUMMER SALE STARTS MIDNIGHT TONIGHT!
20% OFF ALL 15mm and FT CODES for ONE WEEK ONLY!

The sale will run from 00:00 hours* (Midnight, UK time) tonight until Midnight next Sunday, the 22nd.
* Or even a little earlier if I decide to turn it on sooner......
In other words it will be on for ONE WEEK ONLY!

That gives you all a week to get your orders in, then allows me a week or so to catch up with dispatching them all before the end of the month, which is when I will have to start planning and casting for the forthcoming Autumn shows.


This year's Summer Sale is a simple one - no codes to enter, and no minimum qualifying order size - the sale prices will automatically be charged on all the eligible items - once the sale has begun, all the included items will have the special sale prices shown in RED on their product listing.
The SALE DISCOUNT is 20% OFF the normal retail prices on all of our 15mm and FT codes - in other words the following ranges:  SG15, MG15, TW15, V15 and all FT code items!

I'm afraid that this time round the 2mm, 6mm and 25mm codes are NOT included in the sale, mainly because I have to cast most of those up specially when they are ordered, while I try to hold almost all of the 15mm and FT ranges in stock most of the time.
Obviously you can order SALE and non-sale items in the same order, but only the qualifying items will come up at sale prices.

FUBAR Wargames




The FUBAR Wargames blog is dedicated to publishing free, simple, brief and clear rules for wargames.

Many of the sets featured here are the products of a collaboration between Craig Cartmell and a group of stalwart and imaginative wargamers who are called collectively The Forge of War Development Group.

The group’s golden rule is credit where credit is due. Thus each person who contributes to a game is credited for that contribution in the ruleset.

Craig has been designing and publishing free sets of rules for over twenty years, and gaming for a lot longer than that. Recently he hit pay dirt co-authoring the In Her Majesty’s Name series of wargames rules for Osprey with his old friend Charles Murton. This led him to not working on FUBAR and other projects, something that will now change with the creation of this blog.

Craig Cartmell, is a little strange and likes to talk about himself in the third person.
