Default 40k clubs in tewkesbury, cheltenham and Gloucester areas

so, as the title says, in a few months time, i may have to move back to tewkesbury and get me a new 40k club.

so any of you guys know of any decent clubs in these areas? i'd prefer one that has a painting area too (i paint much more than i game at the moment)

if there are a few, i'll probably go to all of them for a couple of weeks.

cheers for any help :D

Ive started to update this project loge again, you should all check it out. it has some stupid things on it, and some fun things on it haha

Moving back to flood central of the UK? good luck

As for clubs there's quite a few in the area. Cheltenham has 2 big clubs from what I remember and there's a club in Evesham (well, just outside) too that meet every other Sunday. There's also late night gaming on Thursday at total wargamer just outside Evesham and they run a lot of events there too - those are the ones I can remember. Any others would probably be too far out of your way such as Redditch, Worcester and Stratford.

http://wargamers.worcester-county.org/ is the evesham club - used to be called Evesham Wargamers until recently

There's Cheltenham Warchiefs and the Cheltenham Wargames Association, the latter is more of a historical club if memory serves with the Warchiefs being a bit of everything.

As for total wargamer, they're located in Blackminster just outside Evesham and have loads of gaming tables with scenery to fill them all, a chillout area and painting areas. Most of the clubs within 20 miles or so use it as their local so I'm sure you'll end up down there at some point plus I'll probably be setting up 40k tournaments every time I'm back in the UK so get yourself acquainted with the place and sign up for the next one ;)

Worcester doesn't have a gaming group: my friends keep trying to start one but it never quite happens... I'm not sure about a club in redditch, if there was one I might be interested in knowing more. As it is I head up to Rubery to the club there... but I've only been a few times and am struggling to bother to make the effort- I used to play at GW worcs a lot, especially on games night, but games night has been killed and I work away from home... leaving the weekend, when I'm, normally knackered.

http://forum.redwarsoc.com/ that's the redditch site - from the guys I've met from there they seems pretty big on Malifaux at the moment and a few getting into Dystopian Wars (which is awesome by the way - simple, quick and fun) but they do quite a bit of GW games too.

Hey Tim/Steve! I remeber you from GW Worcester. My names Ben Walker used to be known some times as 'baby ben'. I came down with Luke Price. Dunno if you remember us. Its sad whats happened to GW Worcester to be honest. I'm getting back into the hobby after a while and going back here to find no gaming night and the downstairs gaming room closed is really disheartening. Let me know if you find a decent gaming club in Worcester, because me and Luke would definitely be up for joining, or even trying to make one if it comes to that.

Heya Baby Ben, sure I remember you and Luke: it was Lian who was planning on starting a club out on Bath road; think the idea died but it may be worthwhile you talking to him.
Alternately Norman opened a club at Manaleak on a Wednesday evening with Simon, Nagle, Jingles and a few other regulars... it is a bit anti-GW but I used top get the occasional game down there (but new job has stopped me going for the last few months)- I can add you to the FB page if you're interested.

Personally I'm getting into a club in Rubery (edge of Brum) on Sundays with Jon-Jo but I'm guessing that's much too far for you to go.
