Age of Sigmar night – 31st March

We had a great turn-out at the club this evening with 9 tables set up to play Age of Sigmar.

All counted up we had over 25 players at the club playing Warhammer, Bolt Action and some of the clubs own designed games too.

Derby Wargames is open every Monday and Thursday evening but if you are interested in Warhammer Age of Sigmar then the next organised night is on April 14th.

Bolt Action at Derby Wargames

We have a local group of Bolt Action players that regularly attend the club.

If you are wondering what Bolt Action is, this is from the Warlord Games website,

World War II Wargaming

From Blitzkrieg to North Africa, from the Russian Front to the D-Day Landings, Bolt Action puts YOU in command of the most brutal and famous battles of the Second World War.

Assemble and paint your brave men and armoured tanks, field them on a table-top battlefield, and use all your strategy, cunning and luck to defeat your opponent.

So if you like the sound of that get in touch with us via the contact page on this website or post in the Derby Wargames Society Facebook group

Warhammer Age Of Sigmar club night

We have started to host monthly Age of Sigmar club nights at Derby Wargames Society.

The next planned night is Thursday 3rd March.

Last time we had 8 players here all playing Age of Sigmar, I can’t remember the last time we had so many people playing Warhammer!

If you want to come along and join in you can do, it’s easier than ever to squeeze an extra player into a game, but it will also help to try and book a game in advance.

Anyone is welcome to come along and play, the club is open as normal not just for Age of Sigmar players but we are taking an effort to encourage a good turn out for 1 Warhammer night a month.

If you have never been to Derby Wargames before, we meet every Monday and Thursday night at 7.00pm until 11.00pm and play all manner of Tabletop games including Miniature wargames, Board games and CCG’s.  You are of course welcome to play AoS on any club night.

The clubs venue is:

The Victory Club (previously known as Allenton Royal British Legion)
85 Chellaston Road
DE24 9AF

For more details keep an eye on the clubs Facebook page.

Here are a few pics from our last Age of Sigmar night



Warhammer is here!

Warhammer is here!!

The game has just moved into its 8th Edition of the rules and promises to be fantastic!  An all new full colour rule book shows off how great the game is going to be, so dig out your old armies and pop down to the club to give it a go.

Derby Wargames Society members can also get some great discounts on the new book.  More details of this can be found in the members section of the forums

Get on the forums, arrange some games and lets see you all playing it down the club!

Prepare to board!
