The Hulls Angels Wargames club is run by a group of avid hobbyists with over 40 years experience of all aspects of the hobby. We aim to provide the people of hull with a safe environment in which to explore all aspects of their hobby. The club boasts space for 20 gaming boards, room to paint and model and room for role players or just a place to chat about the hobby. Below are some of the questions we are frequently asked:

Is this just for kids?

No the club isn’t just for kids; it’s open to all ages from kids who play with toys to adults who play with toys too. Anyone from the ages of 11 to 111 can come to the club as often as they wish.

How old do I have to be?

You have to be 11 years or older, or be at high school to come to the club. Younger gamers may be allowed, but only if accompanied at all times by a responsible adult. Please talk to the Club Secretary about this.

Do I have to be a member?

No, anyone can come along to the meetings. Your first visit is free, and thereafter there is a charge of £2.00 per meeting with concessions of 50% for children, students and the unemployed. This includes entry to the Club and use of our gaming tables, terrain, paints and modelling materials. The Club is independent and non profit-making. All proceeds go into Club funds which are used to buy more terrain and other equipment, and to fund raffles and other events. There is no membership fee as such you can come to your first meeting free to see whether its for you then you must decide whether you would like to join the club. To become a member you will pay a weekly fee when you arrive and sign a charter laid out by the club. Members get special benefits and prizes.

What’s the cost?

The cost for coming to the club and using the facilities is £2.00 per meeting with concessions of 50% for children, students and the unemployed
What games do you play?

The Club does not limit itself to any particular games, but we are fans of Games Workshop's range of science fiction and fantasy settings. People play a number of Games Workshop titles and there is a variety of their specialist games also catered for. We also provide room for role playing along with the resources to role-play in those worlds.

The role-players use a variety of systems including Warhammer Fantasy Role-play, but they also get into other systems as well.

What facilities does the Club have?

We have three areas to use and enough space for about twenty 6' by 4' gaming boards.. In addition to the gaming rooms we have a small snack bar, storage for all our equipment, and ladies/gents toilets on site. We have a large and growing collection of terrain to use and always have a painting and modelling table set up with paints and other materials for members to use, free of charge. 

What can't I do?

We have a few rules to make the Club safe and comfortable for everyone. You can't smoke or drink alcohol on Club premises, or use your own modelling knives. Other than that - provided it doesn't spoil anyone else's enjoyment of the Club - you are pretty much free to do what you like. For more information on things like this, see the Club Rules
