Definately not! At Lisburn Gaming Club, we have a ever growning amount of scenery at hand for people to use for their games.
However, if you require something specific for a game, for whatever reason it may be useful if you own that yourself, for you to bring it.
If you wish to bring some scenery anyway then please feel free to
- Does my army need to be painted?
No, it is not essential for your army to be painted, as long as it assembled it should be fine.
The only case where you would need it painted would be if a game was being run that required painted armies.
You will find alot of guys at the club do not have painted armies as they are still learning to use them or trying soemthing new etc.
- Am I allowed to model rep?
We do allow the use of proxies/model rep. We only require you to inform your opponent before the game begins.
For most occassions we do not have an issue with repping at all, we are all there to game and have fun, as long as your opponent doesnt mind then yes you can.
- What if I am new to the game?
We welcome beginners to all games!
No matter what game you wish to learn, if we currently have members who play it then they will help teach you the rules and how to play. If its Warhammer 40,000 or any other and we will happily have someone either teach you or even watch you playing in another game and help teach you how to play and may even possibly let you use their own army to play with.
