This year:

I'm looking to increase my gaming circle slightly this year - there's been a marked movement in the club that I attend away from GW games and towards the competition, but alongside this I'm looking to change the kind of game that I play. I'm keen to play some more narrative-skirmish games, and ultimately, I'm looking for a small group in London who are interested in Inq28, Ash Wastes Necromunda, or (and this would be a dream) GW's Confrontation.

I'd also like to have a bit of a run at playing in an RPG (rather than GMing, which I'm currently doing) - so if there's anyone out there looking to run a Black Crusade, Rogue Trader or Dark Heresy campaign, then let me know. 

I thought I'd throw these thoughts out there just in case anyone passing by or noticing this ticking by on someone else's blog might be interested, or know someone who might be.

EDIT: I only have 22 followers so please feel free to disseminate this information for me :)

  1. It has always been my gaming want to play a Confrontation game. Those rules were simply excellent and perfect for the genre it depicted. Sadly back when those rules were first published, I had no-one to play with/against and now those White Dwarf issues reside in some library in rural Norfolk, some 2500 miles from where I currently live.

    I wish you luck finding a group though. Surely in the sprall of London, there has to be some you can connect and play with.

  2. Tim, I'm up for any of this (apart from GMing). Give us a further excuse/kick up the proverbial to sort that games room out round your house, too. All I need are a couple of tutorials.

  3. Dai, I've also never played Confrontation myself: I was only 10 or so when the rules were first published and HeroQuest was about the upper limit of our gaming comprehension at school - it's always been a dream to play the game, it looks excellent. I've been reminded of the system recently by a few things: Fallout: New Vegas (I was thinking about everything having a weight value, including ammo, and only acquiring whatever scraps you could lay your hands on); Neil101's excellent Ash Wastes diorama over at Opus Maius; and a recent revisiting of JB's Byron-esque illustrations for the period.

    You'd think in London that itd be easy to come across people interested although I'm unsure where to start: I kind of wish that I'd met Migs when he was at the Royal College. That being said, there's been some interest, of sorts, from some people at the club so that might be a start.

    Tony: yes, deffo. I might start painting it this weekend if I make time. And good stuff, I'll lend you the Confrontation White Dwarfs if you're interested at looking through that - the one describing the background of Necromunda alone is superb.

  4. awesome - definitely mate. In theory I'm free on Sunday if you want a hand with the painting or shifting stuff. It should also give me an excuse to not do whichever rubbish chores crop up...

  6. Oh, bugger - Tony, I hadn't seen your comment about today. Nem'mind.

    Neil, let me know next time you pay them a visit - we'll get some kind of game in. I have all the White Dwarfs still and was poring over them last week, but thanks for the offer.

  8. I've just had a look on the forum. Sounds really interesting, but I need to seriously think about it... Had some proto-fledgling ideas which don't seem to want to evolve into something viable.
