Last night saw a mini (and noisey) dungeon delve, a try out of Mantics 'Kings of War' which seemed to go down well and a Wild West shoot out in a mexican village where the Mexican bandito's saw off the US posse and kept hold of Santa with his pinyata bag...
Next week we have:
Smugglers Shiv with the usual suspects
Kings of War with Bill and Rob
Incursion with Andy B, Vince and Tom (please don't break him...)
Zombies with Kris, Bradley, Connor and Mick
Seasonal quote (sort of...):
'Get out! Your all drunk!'
Til the plague hits again (or theres new toys...)
EXETER LEGIONARY MMXII Saturday 5th May 2012
Games, traders, competitions and a HUGE bring and buy!
Every year we get BIGGER and better...

Sunday, December 11, 2011
On this week coming we have the RPFC playing the ECW (as couple of them can remember it); Memoir 44/Last Night on Earth with KRIS, Bradley, Vince, Andy G, James and Roddy. Knuckles is bring LOTR if anyone fancies that.
Week after I think is Wild West and Aztecs -hopefully on different tables. Pathfinder on the 28th.
Film quote was the awful but memorable Lair of the White Worm.
Thursday, December 01, 2011
Week after - there has been talk of Hail Cromwell (the insurgent rather than the tank I think); and Knuckles has said he'll bring a game down. I'll run something (as yet undecided) for 3 or 4 people. Discuss on the yahoogroup because I'm not stopping half way through my nut loaf for this at nine next week.
Film quote is "I change my cars as regularly as a snake sheds its skin." from a terrible film but no doubt it will be on TV again soon enough.
Monday, November 28, 2011
Week after is the 7th and the Club Christmas meal - the pub has taken a proper paying booking that night so THERE IS NO CLUB 07/12/11. We'll be downstairs eating and drinking.
The Bristol show was a very pleasant day out, thanks to Bradley for driving and Mick for laying on the game - much admired and discussed, and responsible for boosting Bristol's economy with extra tea light sales. Good to catch up with the Berkeley Vale club in my case, GWP regulars in Mick's, and do a very small ammount of shopping.
 Does anyone have a game planned, or even in mind? (long pause) …….nien……
Monday, November 21, 2011
See you Wednesday.
Tuesday, November 15, 2011
Next week we have BP AWI with Dave, Trainset, and the RPFC; Memoir 44 with Taff and Bookmark; and Necromunda 1st Edition with Roddy, me and Bradley. Other players to insert themselves gently into AWI or Necro...
Wednesday, November 02, 2011
Next week - Hordes of the Things - mini league for me, Roddy, Dave, Trainset (Stargate?), Bradley, Knuckles if he's around, and anyone else welcome. 24 AP - same list for all games - 15mm frontage, 1 hour max per game. Shout if you want to borrow anything specific from me or Bradley. Some one set up 3 2foot tables in row wheh you get there.
Other offerings, Mick will be balancing a ball on his nose for operation Sealion with Vince, Taff, Bill and Robin; and the RPFC will be playing something, possibly dark age ish.
Christmas meal 07/12, no partners; quote was No Country for Old Men, this week -
"You know, in ancient cultures, bears were considered equal with men"
"This ain't no ancient culture here, mister"
"Sometimes it is. "
Monday, October 31, 2011
Complaints to the usual address...
You can even have another quote, even though you didn't get the last one -
- If I don't come back, tell mother I love her.
- Your mother's dead, Llewelyn.
- Well then I'll tell her myself.
Monday, October 24, 2011
Next week we have Pathfinder with me, Andy G, Brett, Trainset, Bookmark, Roddy and Robin. Andy and Vince are playing Secrets of the Third Reich; Mick and Bradley are playing Warhammer 8th; and The Rick Priestley Fan Club will be playing with uniforms. Or maybe tanks.
Some AOB - someone try and remember to discuss the Christmas meal this week; we'll have a Hordes league in 15mm in a couple of weeks time; also Grubby Tanks and Forlorn Hope have booked in for the show, details on the Legionary Website here. Now have about a dozen traders and half a dozen games (which I'll add to the site shortly!).
Friday, October 14, 2011
Next week - me and Roddy are playing 15mm sci fi; Bradley and Taff are playing WFB 8th; the RPFC with the fully assimilated Brett are playing something Germanic; Mick and Bookmark are playing VBCW; and Vince and Andy B are probably playing FOW.
Have a think please about a Christmas do on the 14th - other halves welcome but as suggestions so far include a "WAGS table" or making them dress as camp followers, attend at their own risk.

Thursday, October 06, 2011
Three of us paid a flying visit to Rygas to discuss the show - all very pleasant and amicable, and Legionary 2012 is on a good footing thanks to some support from Rygas. Cheers lads.
Film quote is [just after the piano explodes] "That doesn't usually happen".
Saturday, October 01, 2011
Next week - me, Brett, Mick and Bookmark are travelling up to Rygas to discuss some show stuff, and then with no hint of irony play Very British Civil War; the RPFC are playing with uniforms. Or tanks. Maybe tanks. Bradley is playing WFB 8th with anyone too slow to another game, and if Vince and Andy B are down they'll play something. Possibly WFB 8th if they're slow off the mark.
However - Andy G wants run a Pathfinder at some point, either Shiv or a one off, so if anyone wants to play that sound off.
For the 12th, as things stand - the RPFC will play something by RP; Bradley will play WFB, and me, Bookmark and Taff will play Victory at Sea; unless something happens to change that.

Monday, September 26, 2011
For this week, Bradley wants to play WFB 8th; Mick wants to play 40K 6th, both with Robin; everyone else can play 7YW with Rob and the RPFC. As I'm seemingly allowed down despite going on the lash Thursday I might bring something different with me.
Film quote was PotC - Dead Man's Chest. This week - "By the authority vested in me by Kaiser William II, I pronounce you man and wife. Proceed with the execution."
Sunday, September 18, 2011
Next week is the closest Wenesday to ITLAPD (do your own research) so Mick is running a pirate game for Roddy, me, Trainset, Bradley, and Bookmark; and the only other game on seems to be AIW with Brett and Rob. If you're planning on coming down and aren't on the list, make yourself known...
Quote last week was Alien. This week - "You're off the edge of the map, mate. Here there be monsters."
Sunday, September 11, 2011
Next week, Mick and Robin play 40K using 40K rules; Andy B and Vince play something, possibly FOW; Rob and Brett and anyone else can play Indian Mutiny; Knuckles and Simon play LOTR; and Andy G, Roddy, Bradley and Bookmark return to WHQ. That looks busier...
Film quote last was from Tora Tora Tora. Oddly. This week - "Fossilized. Looks like it's growing out of the chair."
Monday, September 05, 2011
Next (this) week we have just the two games planned; WHQ with Andy G, Bradley, Bookmark, Roddy, Tom (and no others!) and VBCW skirmish with Mick, Rob, possibly Brett and everyone else.
Quote was of course Watchmen. This week you can have "Tora! Tora! Tora!"
Wednesday, August 24, 2011
Next week - Andy G takes Robin, Roddy?, Trainset, Bookmark, Brett and me around a nice tropical island in Pathfinder; Vince and Andy B are playing something; Tom and Tony are playing something else (Must pay more attention); and the RPFC are playing GHQ Microarmour again.
Quote was Kill Bill (vol 2 for the picky) and this week you can have "Tonight, a comedian died in New York."
Monday, August 22, 2011
Monday, August 15, 2011
Next week - now this week, apologies for the delay but I was Tripod hunting - we have BFG with Brett, Robin, Bookmark, Andy G and Trainset (good luck!); another Iraqistan game with Tom, Tony, Mick and Connor (nice language in front of the minor please!); HotT with Bradley, me, and Roddy if he's down; and according to my handwriting, Flames of War Barbarella. Which can't be right, but will probably be Mick's next period.
Last week's quote was Warriors, a classic film of gang culture, violence and social unrest, that was followed by 4 nights of gang led violence and social unrest. No matter how hard I look I can't find a film quote about a bald myopic vegetarian wargamer winning the lottery, so you'll have to settle for - "My god, it's full of stars".
Saturday, August 06, 2011
Quote last week was from Southern Comfort. This week another classic - "60,000 soldiers! Now, there ain't but 20,000 police in the whole town. Can you dig it?"
Thursday, July 28, 2011
Next week we have 20mm modern Iraqistan from Tom, with Tony and room for two more?; Bliztkreig Commander with Bill, Taff, and two others - Andy B, Rob, Robin, slot yourselves in one of those if you're down. Elsewhere Brett, Mike and Trainset will play something colonial and me, Mick, Roddy and Bradley will play.... something else colonial. Or Napoleonic, or Fantasy, depending on how Martian Empires is viewed that night.
Flim last week was Clerks. I thought Mick might be the only one, and the rest of you should be ashamed. Easier one for you -
"There's supposed to be a river here."
"Them ecology boys must've moved it."

Sunday, July 24, 2011
Next week - usual suspects, and Roddy for his sins, return to the desert island in Pathfinder; Vince, Mick and Mike are playing VBCW, again; Taff and Tony are playing Memoir 44, Bradley and Tom will give WFB 8th a shot, and Dave and Bill will do something Rick Preistly ish.
By unpopular request, at least with me, I've been asked to keep the film quote going. Sigh. You get what you deserve. "My friend here's trying to convince me that any independent contractors who were working on the uncompleted Death Star were innocent victims when it was destroyed by the Rebels."
Saturday, July 16, 2011
Next week - another VBCW Devises practice for Mick, Brett, Trainset, Bradley and Gareth; Memoir 44 with Taff (yes Taff) Tony and Bookmark; more pre-Columbus Hordes with me and Roddy and maybe Bill, or possibly Blitzkrieg commander or WFB 8th with Bill and Robin. Everyone else, bring down something to amuse yourselves.
Quote was probably the only line from Dusk till Dawn suitable for the blog. No one got it so I win. The end.
Saturday, July 09, 2011
Next week we have the RPFC playing Marlburian Black Powder, Robin and Bill no longer playing WFB 8th, me and Roddy playing HotT, and Brett, Trainset, Bradley and Mick playing pre-WW2 as I now have to call it. But Mick seems to call it VBCW still. Anyone without a game, bring a HotT army in 15mm.
Quote was obviously from Flash Gordon, why don't we play more pulp? This week - "If you try to run, I've got six little friends and they can all run faster than you can."
Friday, July 01, 2011
Next week - Brett and Bradley come back to Mars with me; Bill and Rob come not to praise Preistly but to Hail him; Mick and Vince descend to the Underhive, and Knuckles and Trainset are playing LOTR.
Last week's quote was Serenity. This week "Are your men on the right pills?"
Thursday, June 23, 2011
Next weeks delights are a Napoleonic Naval for Rob, Tony, Brett, and Bill; Bovington practice VBCW with Mick, Andy B, Trainset and Gareth; LOTR with Knuckles and Simon; and Epic 40K with Bradley, me, and Roddy - a man who can barely see 6mm figures from his height. Should be fun.
Last week's quote was Dune. This week's quote is Star Wars. There, that saved you some time, go and paint something instead of googling film quotes. No? OK then - "This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then - explode."
Saturday, June 18, 2011
Next week, Brett, Roddy, Bookmark and Bradley return to Mars while I try and keep order. The Rick Priestly Fan Club break away to play Blitzkreig Commander, Robin and Andy will play Warhammer 8th, no really they will, and Mick, Gareth and Trainset play Very British Civil War.
Last weeks film was X2, a modern classic. Well, a bit of a laugh anyway. This week is easier for you - " The slow blade penetrates the shield. " - anyone who doesn't get that, Phil will lend you the Webley.
In other news, there's a new gaming hall on Marsh Barton. Here's their blurb.
Ironhaven Games is a Gaming Hall with an attached store as opposed to the other way around and we work on a membership basis. We offer three 12’x6’ tables plus space for another three 4’x4’ tables, all of which have scatter terrain and are separately themed.
We are open Tues/Wed/Thurs evenings from 5:30pm-10pm and Sat/Sun from 10am-6pm.
Membership costs £15 a month and as well as access every day we are open, it also gives members a 20% discount off RRP on all products and tournament tickets, plus priority for upcoming events such as games designer visits. We are also working on a range of other member benefits such as a book/DVD library and painting demos.
Non-members are charged at £2.50 a session per evening and £3.50 per session at the weekend, non-members also receive a 10% discount off RRP.
We’ve been officially opened since the 4th June and are actively looking to support clubs in the area with events, tournaments etc.
Here’s our (developing) website! www.ironhavegames.co.uk
Saturday, June 11, 2011
Next week, we can offer a Rick Priestly Game (Rob, Dave, Bill?), Secrets of the Third Reich, if the injunction has been lifted (Andy B, Mick, Vince), Lord of the Rings (Knuckles, Simon, and Gareth and Roddy - you were warned), and Warhammer Quest - everyone else.
Film quote was obviously (to some) Johnny Mnemonic, Keanu's finest role. This week - "When will these people learn how to fly?"
Sunday, June 05, 2011
The Rick Priestly Fab Club turned to ancient Egypt in their continuing quest to break Hail Caesar, and sounded like they enjoyed it. Everyone else played Strange Grog with Andy's Pirates, and why not.
Next week - the Pathfinder Fan Club will continue to wander around a tropical island in fear and distress - it's a stag weekend gone wrong. The RPFC and Vince will play either Black Powder or Hail Ceasar, and Andy B, Mick, Roddy and Bradley will be playing Very British Civil War.
Last week was obviously Highlander (there should have been only one). This week - "If you're not expected then you're not invited - SO F*** OFF!"
Sunday, May 29, 2011
Next week sees LOTR with Knuckles and Simon again, Ancients with the Rick Priestly Fan Club (Rob, Vince & Bill); Brett and Bradley playing ACW; and everyone else - Trainset, Bookmark, Mick, Andy G and Robin playing Andy B's pirate game. There will be a long hard talk about the L word at 9.
"I apologize for calling your wife a bloated warthog, and I bid you good day."
