Four more galleries have been added to the website, one of which has been revamped. The revamped Gallery is our Border Reivers SE (Special Edition), which can be found here.

Most of the photos in this gallery have been seen before, but not in this way. There are some that haven't. All the photos in the Reivers gallery have been "fixed" from the original's straight from the camera. In addition to those photos, there are photos from Paul Robinson, the club member who organised the game and whose Reivers are in most of the shots. All the Border Reivers in this gallery are from Vendel Miniatures.

The other three galleries are:

15mm Napoleonic
Featuring the armies of Andy Sharpe and Mark Alcock, which can be found here
20mm Greeks
Battle between Andy Hamilton and Dave Hewins. All the figures in it were by Dave Hewins. It can be found here
15mm Seven Years War
Featuring the armies of Dave Hewins and Tony Walmsley. It can be found here

As always, all our galleries can be found here. They will all be slowly revamped. Unless stated otherwise, the photos in them were taken by myself.

Reivers mixed with Wayward Villagers. Unseen photo till now.

I would also now like to announce my plans for the Grimsby Wargames Society website. They will take effect in the near future:

  • Revamping of the gallery pages to include photos by our members, which are presently still located in our yahoo group here.
  • Two painting guides, originally written by Steve Walker, which will be converted to PDF
  • Expansion of our dedicated Rapid Fire! page to include battle reports, photo galleries and links to such, those of our members and players of RF2 around the world
  • A "Bibliography," on a page of its own, a list of wargames magazines and their issues in which any of our members past and present have had their articles and/or photos printed. Since the Club has been going 30 years plus, it is going to be big. That also includes the photos/articles of a certain Colin Rumford and Richard Marsh, who were members. The original Rapid Fire! fast play rules (1994) were developed from our World War II rules, and was playtested by many of our members.
  • The Warhammer players who play on Tuesdays nights will be getting their own page, and photos of their finished figures and games on the site.

I will also be developing my ACW-themed blog here.

Hope you enjoy our photos, and look forward to seeing you at Partizan!
