My friend's house!

My basement, with three large tables and lots of storage.

I have a game room 25 feet by 12 feet. My game table is '15x5'. My painting room is in another room in the house so that leaves the game room free to leave the game set up and take down at leisure. I store my terrain under the table in marked boxes and my figures are on 8 book shelves with 5 shelves in each so 40 shelves worth of figures.

No longer, sadly…

Always ready for action…. or a quiet reading room.

With 15x6 table in place:

Several Los Angeles player groups meet at the warren. Each with their different eras for gaming:

Victory at Sea using 1/700 scale models…larger battles on shaded patio. Five players with two new players building ships.
Flames of war Ver3.2 using 15mm or my 20mm collections. 5 to 8 players.
Napoleonic's 25/28mm with club rules since 1976. 5-8 players also.
War Spanish Succession era with 25/28mm. A new and expanding group.
Ancients quarterly game with Clash of Empire rules 25/28mm. 6-8 players with collections.

If interested… look up Wargamerabbit in Google.

Tales from the Wargames shed, FB page, is my little shed behind our house, where a barn once stood.

The table is now 20 x 8, although a few feet are currently taken up with bits of bee hive!

Tally Ho!

A spare bedroom, about 4 m square, at the rear of the house where I have an extendable dining table I use as a writing desk but can also use for games, shelves for my books and framed prints of Napoleonic battles on the walls that my wife refuses to display in the living rooms downstairs.

"a place you can leave things set up"

Possible only if there are no cats. And, yes, if there's a door to said space, it can be closed to exclude felines. But then you have said felines meowing and scratching at the door while you're in there and doing the same while you're out as the felines just know there's something in there they need to know about. Cats fully believe in their right to go where they want to go when they want to and people just don't understand that.

As well as figures and terrain (especially trees) being great toys to play with.
