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.

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.

Cheers bud, got the PM and looking through the website now. The only downer is its outside Middlesbrough, and as sods l;aw would have it, on the opposite side of the town to me :S

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...

:yer not wrong cyclops:

Well i went to my local GW's Sunday games thing where they rent a little hall and have a few games. I was a bit dissapointed as the game was IG v Nids and wasnt very entertaining, it was more of a whitewash really. I think the Nid player lost 3 genestealers, the IG guy, his entire army.

The worst thing, which the GW guy confirmed is that i cant really get a game till i have an army, so looks like i may have to wait some time. I had thought previously GW would let you use theirs for an introductory game.

I may have to try further afield for possible guys to game with, one area i'm looking at is Newcastle, its only 2 stops on the train and even if i could get a couple of decent lads to get games even once a month with i'd be happy.

I've yet to try the Middlesbrough lot out as i thought i'd give darlington a bash first and although i wouldnt rule it out, it didnt blow me away. Atmosphere didnt seem too friendly apart from a couple of guys, though there was more my age and above than i expected. Funnily enough the friendliest were the young kids lol.

So if anyone knows of any clubs etc in Newcastle i'd be happy to go along for a look.

was it the place i told you about? if so, thats because it isn't a gw, its independant - gw should be able to provide something for you, even if its in limited numbers and not quite your ideal force

Nah i havent went to the Middlesbrough one yet, this was a little thing the Darlington GW organises a couple of doors from their store. Though id try the closest first then go further afield.

To be fair, one of our gaming group'ee lives in York, My bro! (I am one of Drax's gaming buds!) We could do a meet up in a York pub at some point? To prove we aint wierd or anything? It wouldnt be regular, but better than nothing!

Yeah Yorks certainly not far from here, in fact i think its just one stop on the train. So if there ever was anything going off down there i'd certainly be interested.
