Hello. I'm new here. Some questions, if that's ok

Greetings!

My name is Lee, and I live in the Bronx.
I've met with Mike, the head guy at The Compleat Strategist, and he tells me folks game there on Thursdays and Saturdays, I believe.

I would very much like to come down and meet you guys, chat and maybe catch a game.

I play Flames of War (Germans), Infinity (Combined), and I have a bunch of X Wing minis, as well.
I'm currently building a new 40k Imperial Guard (aka 'Astra Militarum') army at the moment, but I'm only building troops until the new Codex releases.

I have a fairly nice set of Infinity terrain, which I'd be happy to bring along. I'm building it this weekend- it's that 'District 5' stuff, and is really nice.

The truth is, me and my friend Louis are desperately searching for other gamers, but it seems they're really hard to find in the Bronx- we don't have a hobby shop here, even.
I'd really like to come down and introduce myself and my friend Louis to you, and maybe catch a game. I'm an older guy, myself, married and boring at 45. Louis is younger, and is new-ish to the hobby, and his enthusiasm is contagious.

If you folks are meeting at the Compleat Strategist on any Saturday in the near future, please let me know if this would be ok, and I could catch an invite and bring an army. If you meet on a Thursday...well, I'll find a way to sneak an army to work somehow.
;)

Thank you, Warmongers- I was very happy to find out there's a NYC gaming club. I look forward, very much, to hearing from you!

Hi there Lee -

Most of us are older gamers too, this club was originally founded to get away from all the kids at the GW store. :)

Unsure about how much X Wing in currently being played, but we have both FoW and Infinity players and they'd love new opponents - look in the Other Games section on this forum for posts about those two games.

(Someone is looking for a FoW player next Saturday here - http://warmongers.ziggyqubert.com/wmbb/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=17748&start=110)

Most of our gaming is on Thursday nights (and yes, lots of people sneak armies to work), but the space is available on Saturdays if you arrange games ahead of time. Years ago there was a large Saturday crowd, but families and other responsibilities have taken their toll. We have occasional Saturday events as well, but the vast majority of gaming is on Thursdays.

The absolute best thing to do is come down on a Thursday and meet everyone and get a feel for the club. Just walk in and say you're new - everyone's friendly.

I just started playing infinity myself last thursday ; someone just started a league that week. I'm also a FoW player, with germans, russians and americans for late war, playing around 1750. I'll also be in this thursday trying out infinity again, so come on in. Most gaming starts after 5:00...

Hello,
Im another historical player. Ive played FOW but only a handful of games with the 3rd ed. I'd love to be able to change that but with a new kid at home and the wifes hours have changed it makes it tough to get into the city, I live in NJ. But don't count me out as you never know. Your best bet is to post your intent for a game and see what pops up. Might take a few attempts but your certain to get in a few games before you know it.

Hey guys!

Sorry I was sick for a week, and ended up working this previous Saturday.

Thanks for the welcome- much appreciated.

This coming Saturday (March 29th) I plan on packing up my Flames of War stuff, and my X Wing stuff, and heading downtown.
I've already told wifey- next Saturday is a 'gaming day' for me.
The new 40k Imperial Guard (aka 'Astra Militarum') Codex is releasing that day, and I've got to buy one, as I'm currently elbow deep in 'Zombie Guardsmens' (Giant Mantic Kit) and a half-built Shadowsword.

I'll be at the Compleat Strategist by 1:00pm, with my FoW and X Wing stuff (I have both factions for X Wing, if anyone wants to try), and I'll hang around and buy stuff (I always believe one should support the store they play in...or even are hoping to play in. Heh).

I'm sorry- I'm very bad at forums...but if anyone wants to text me or whatever to arrange a hook up:
(917) 288-5971 (or feel free to call...you folks seem cool, and my company pays for the phone...)
Email- sinsynn@hotmail.com

Or simply stop by the blog I write for:
http://www.houseofpaincakes.com/
My most recent post is on the front page.

I've got some time to look around while I'm here...before 'doggie walks.'
Sigh...waddayagonnado?

Well, since the weather sucks, the new Imperial Guard book isn't the IG at all (it's some silly Stormtrooper book), and I didn't get any replies for a game, I'll probably lay up today.
My buddy gets out of school at 2:30.
If anybody would like a game this afternoon after 3:00-ish today, hit mu up here or on my celly- info above.
Thanks- everyone enjoy a lazy, rainy weekend!
*yawn*
I was up early to do laundry...nap time!

Hey Syn, unsure if people would be looking in this forum for setting up games.

Try the Other Games section on this site. Particularly this thread that a couple of our Saturday FoW players use to schedule amongst each other -- http://warmongers.ziggyqubert.com/wmbb/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=17748&start=120

(Ignore the August title or whatever, they've been using it as an ongoing thread. Met up last weekend it looks like.)

Posting something in there about Saturday FoW or Infinity will get more read by the right people.
