Default Anyone play 40k and live nr Darlington, UK?

Alright lads, as i mentioned in my hello thread i'm looking to get into 40k but would quite like to try and fins folk my own age or older to have a game with as opposed to the guys who hang out in my local shop who all seem really young any time ive been in.

I'm 27yrs old and although only just getting into 40k ive played historical wargames for years with my old man. I did have a little bash at 40k about 15 yrs ago which resulted in a small BA army but thats all.

Looking to paint up a Salamanders army as i speak.

As someone already suggested i might try stores in other nearby cities like Durham to see if i get any joy.

if its any use to you, i can link you to a group in Middlesboro.

my geography gets really sketchy outside East Yorkshire, so it may be too far, but let me know

sorry for the delay - i have pm'd you.

let me know if you don't get it, i couldn't get on to your profile/bring up the option to pm you, so i went on to a blank message and copied your username from here.

as far as i can tell, these guys are all good blokes.

they run an online store and its where i get my stuff from.

But alls not lost, maybe just means i'll have to only go once a month or something so thanks a lot.

Maybe the two of you could arrange to meet once a month in York, at the GW there say, and game with each other?

Go on. Go on go on go on. You know you want to...

Just a suggestion anyway, based on your vague geographical proximity.

Au contraire, mate, Darlo to York on the train is... just long enough for a banana to turn brown... let's say half an hour.

As for Heresy's Pimp... well, I was thinking 'Matchmaker', myself, but it's much of a muchness...
