Hi all. me and a friend at work recently got back into 40k and are trying to find either a local group or a hobby store near by that has tables. you can only play tau vs dark eldar so many times. I live near Ely and he lives near lakenheath. If any body knows of a place or group in or near Cambridge, Ely, mildenhall, bury st. Edmonds, you get the point. Thanks in advance for any help. Cheers.

hello mate,

I'm from Haverhill and have had contact with the following clubs;

Haverhill Wargaming - Forum for wargamers in and around Haverhill to chat and arrange games. also a club runs in the area;

Bury Wargamers - a bury based club for gamers in and around the area;

Sons of War - Cambridge club for people in and around the area!

enjoy! and don't forget to signup to the Haverhill forum :-)

There is also:

Newmarket Knights Wargames Club (http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CDsQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fnewmarketknights.blogspot.com%2F&ei=AR8xUITaNoWa0QWEh4DoDA&usg=AFQjCNHew-fhcBkbNIIx0uG2kU5-MqbACQ)


Lakenheath Wargames Club aka The Hive (No forum for this one, more of a low key club, but still plenty of people playing games).

I go to the Lakenheath and Bury clubs myself, they're both good, and know people who go to the other clubs listed, and they're all going strong.

There's also a Soham club IIRC, but from what I hear it's a bit of an "old guard" kind of affair. There used to be an Ely club, but I don't think it's still going.

isn't there also a Suffolk gaming club that seems to meet at different venues?

I'm sure I heard they go to bury every now and then? mainly historical gaming?

I'm not in a club, don't play very often and when I do it's mostly Fantasy, but I live in Soham and am quite prepared to use my Dark Angels (http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=6143) in anger if you feel the need for another opponent some time (that goes for anyone who's posted in this thread, really).

I'll also add that GW Cambridge has gaming nights and tables. I also know of a group of guys (one who lives at Red Lodge) who go to a club in Huntingdon.

I never realised there were so many people who played out Sohams\Ely direction, I used to own a shop in Soham.

The Cambridge Sons of War organiser is on Warseer, he has a thread for the club here;

This thread may also be of use;

@Thommy H nice DA, you must be looking forward to the new models(and codex when it arrives).
