Hello table top generals, a while ago I asked what made the ideal war gaming venue.
Well at long last, after many hours of discussions the “giants Lair” will open approx 24th sept in Faraday Mill Plymouth, and will use this log to chart our progress, ups and downs.
Bit of background on the venue; once we started looking at premises we had various properties to look at but unfortunately estate agents tried steering us towards office blocks, however the business park where we have settled is all owned and managed by one family firm, who so far (touch wood) have proven to be very helpful and sympathetic to our cause, indeed dissuading us from a perfect venue on the same estate which commanded a higher rent than the one we have.
It seems that with so many empty industrial units landlords are willing to accept lower rents and better terms just to get people in them.
About our goals; having enjoyed a sporty background it’s a clubhouse mentality, a home for our local club (cross swords) who at the moment like many other clubs use a pubs function room, a familiar tale I’m sure where the room is rented for a couple of hours, then scenery is packed away and stored in a cupboard/beer cellar/car boot.
The local GW has 6 4x4 tables and if you’re not playing or paying your asked to leave!!!
We want to offer the chance to play legendary battles/ apocolypse battles on awesome tables, with no time constraints. We have some awesome tables at our disposable however no one plays on them because they’re not set up, they’re not set up because no one uses them.
Any how stay tuned
