South Yorkshire Dice Devils Host Warmachine/Hordes Regional Open Tournament.

As the title of the post say's the South Yorkshire Dice Devils GCN club as set to host, what we hope will be the first of many Open Tournaments for Warmachine/Hordes in our region, South Yorkshire and North East Midlands.

A word or two from the SYDD themselves...

'Most gamers will have heard of  heard of Warmachine and Hordes from Privateer Press, quite a few of our club members play the systems, however, the club has gone one step further. SYDD have about of 8-10 Warmachine/Hordes players and we wanted to give the group another level to play to.

We contacted Privateer Press in America to see about SYDD becoming an 'accredited' club for them, so when we run tournaments we can post them on the Privateer Press website to promote the event, but also if anyone else wanted to run tournaments they could use our facilities to do so and could also use us via Privateer Press also.  We sent details over in the size of facility and some information on what we are playing and they thought the idea had merit. so much so, that we are now one of a select few clubs that are accredited with Privateer Press.

So if you have a tournament in Warmachine/Hordes or any other PP games get in touch and we will try to help.

SYDD are looking at running an open  tournament in October,  please see details below, if you fancy taking part, please get in touch and let us know'.

Happy wargaming

GMS Magazine has a Salute Video which includes a piece on the GCN.

While at Salute in April I was approached on the GCN stand to do an interview for GMS Magazine, I had completely forgotten all about it until looking at the new video's they had uploaded about UK Games Expo, so I have included a link to their web site, and to the page with the Salute video.

Go and have a look, its an interesting look at Salute from an outsiders point of view.


GMS Magazine,
G*M*S Magazine in their words:

'Is here to bring you news and articles on your favourite games and game miscellanea'.
First impressions count a lot in everything, and the way we do our reviews is by reading the book, or playing the game for the first time and letting you know what we think about it. That way you’ll know exactly what to expect when you open the game and play it at home.

G*M*S Magazine is made by the people who read it. We don’t have staff, we don’t have employees or employers and we don’t have a company telling us what we can publish or not.

We would like to become the number one source of gaming information and to do that we need your help. Register and start posting away. The magazine is pretty much unmoderated, so as long as you’re polite and respectful, your articles will be published.

Do you have news to tell us?
Contact us and send us an email to submissions@gmsmagazine.com
Items we’re looking for are:
Are you a publisher, an indie developer, a writer? Have you created a product you want to tell the world about? This is your place. Let us know what you have done and we will tell the rest of the world for you!
Did you like it? Was it a waste of money? Let others know.
Do you know anything you think everyone else should know? Don’t let it remain unknown. We will tell people for you!
Subjects we want to cover are:
Role Playing Games, Board Games, Wargames, CCG’s of any kind.
Also books related to, or based on, any of the above categories.
Remember this magazine is for you, and it needs you to be the best it can be.

New clubs joining the network.

Its been relatively quiet on the club front with regards to new clubs joining the network through May, June and July.

To be honest I had fully expected our numbers to reach 150 clubs and even go beyond that number by late May, given the fact that I sent out so many application forms from mid Feb through April and early May, but for one reason or another its been very quiet.

However I have the pleasure to announce that we have four new clubs joining the network, this brings our total number of clubs up to 142!

New clubs for August.

East Coast Wargamers based in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
North London Wargames Group, based in Cheshunt.
Sarge of Doncaster Wargames Club, hailing from Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
3rd Floor Gamers, based in Chesterfield.

Please join me in welcoming all the new clubs into the GCN.

Happy Gaming

Anthony Barnes
GCN president.
