Old School 40K game to be held at Foundry

First off, I have no association either with Foundry or the team that brought us the original Rogue Trader (40K First Edition), other than as a happy customer.

That out of the way I think this is absolutely splendid and would attend were I not so geographically challenged.

Re-posting the announcement (with Foundry's permission) in order that more folks will have the opportunity to enjoy old school 40K.  Please spread the word to anyone you know who might be interested!

Rogue Trader Participation Game
On Saturday the 15th of December we’re hosting a Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader participation game here at Foundry. The game is being run by Andy and Gareth, a pair of veteran gamers who are providing all the models and scenery for the game.

We’ll be open from 10am and games will be running between 11am and 4pm. Anyone is welcome to drop in and take control of a squad from one of the factions battling it out on a destabilized Imperial world.

My Dad, Bryan Ansell, will be there at some point in the day. I’m sure he hasn’t seen a game of 1st edition Warhammer 40,000 in decades. We’ve found a very old master mould for a pair of fishmen with science fiction guns he converted from fantasy models to playtest Laserburn and later on Rogue Trader. Ronnie is going to make a new production mould so that we can have them as giveaway models for anyone there on the day.

We’ll also have tea, coffee, biscuits and possibly even cake for anyone who turns up.



As always thanks for stopping by and if you should go, do please send me some photos of the event!
