Hobby Fortress - The New Shop

Sunday, 24 April 2011 · 13 comments

Just a quick one for you. Here is the new shop that will be opening in the next few months at Grimston Steet in Hull. As you can see I have started to set up how the shop will operate and with a lot more work we may start to see products appearing on the shelves and things actually getting sold.

I will mainly be concentrating on our main gaming areas in the club. Roleplaying, GW, Flames of War, Privateer Press and some historical models along with modelling ad painting equipment as well as a few magazines.

What sort of products would you like to see in the shop?

I am pleased to announce the launch of hullwarmachine.co.uk in association with Hulls Angels. After discussion with Ross (GrimJaw) I have put together the website below in order to allow people to register interest in a regular Warmachine /Hordes night to be set up at the club.

If you have any interest in playing Warmachine at the club please go onto the website and fill in the form (takes less than a minute and is mainly multiple choice) and we will use the answers to decide which day/night to run the group on and what sort of events to do in our first months - also if anyone is interested in helping me run / promote this drop me a line to let me know!
