Big gaming event I am involved with at Stoke Rochford hall near Nottingham and just off the A1.  October date and so far just a large Aeronef game, however other games are welcome if you need space to game.

Just sharing details of an AERONEF game being played up in Stoke Rochford Hall later this year in October. Details of the event in the Facebook group. This will be the 5th time the group have gathered for a big Nef game and it is very much open to the public to attend, join in with the game etc. Brigade Models will be attending with a small Nef focused trade stand. https://www.facebook.com/StokeRochfordGaming

I like using local Fauna in a game. These are some old GW models (one from Epic, the other two from Necromunda) and the size feels right for 15mm.

+Robin Fitton Thanks for responding. I wanted to try the Optional Rules - Alternating Activation (page 94), but second sentence of the second paragraph under Alternating Activation (p.94) is mangled and missing text, and I could not figure it out.

Here is the second paragraph as printed in the Gruntz 15MM rulebook:

"At the beginning of every turn check to confirm if one player has twice the number of units on the table. The player with twice the units activates the game the numbers of units on each side are unequal"

As you can see the second sentence is missing some words. How should this sentence read?

Here is an example of the easy to use free Gruntomatic.. :).  Very easy to create 15mm models and name the weapons and write fluff text yourself.

+Peter Lyberth well worth trying, I played a game with some club mates and I'm hooked, with a little tweaking I've used it for WW2, Pirates, VSF and others (as well as sci-fi). A very flexible and adaptable system.

Terrain  - 
 
Various images of the Games Workshop craters I used to make a small 3x3ft demo table for Gruntz which was sized to be able to take it on the road to shows and clubs. The plastic craters from GW were good value, this is just one pack and I cut one or two of the craters up to make the rim for a much larger crater.

Just had an amazing Lasagna at Iydea in Brighton. A little crowded and tricky to find a seat but fast service ad yummy food. *Reduced my rating to good because today I tried a smoothie and they don't peel the apples put into the mix. I ended up with peel stuck in my throat and a few hours of discomfort trying to cough it out. PEEL your apples please!

Any amazing short walk around the Warnham nature reserve. Lots to see with some fun walks over the marsh-like areas where they have raised wooden walkways. The kids love it and there are some nice birds to see for those into bird watching. They also have a great little tea shop with some homemade pasties.

The staff are always friendly in this village Deli. I work locally and visit a couple of times a week for freshly made sandwiches. I would not hesitate to recommend the food which is high quality and tasty. In addition to fresh sandwiches, rolls and baked goods they also have an extensive range of deli-type produce which I have occasionally bought.

I found the APH staff were very friendly and I could not fault the service. It was a smooth start to our holiday and made the experience of parking easy for my family. The transfer to the airport was quick for both the outbound and return journey and I am a regular customer who will be back again - there were some great discounts for repeat customers.
