Hey look! I found the blog again....

Apologies as work has been very busy and we've been busy looking in to events to run.

Which brings me to:
We are delighted to announce that Vonwar will be running the 40K Event at the Attack! Wargames Show in Devizes this year. This event is in its 35th year and is organised by our friends at the DDWG and runs on the weekend of 19/20 July 2014. Details of the show and the DDWG can be found here:

To ease our way in this year we are offering 2 single day events:
Old Skool
3 games at 1500 points

3 games at descending points 1650-1150-650

We have 30 places available for each event and you are, of course, quite welcome - nay encouraged - to enter both

Single Events cost £10 and we have a special discount cost of £16 to enter both events. Entry in to the Show for the day(s) of your chosen event is included in your ticket price.

Pack can be grabbed via email

MAD3 Tickets Disappearing quickly

We've had a quick tour of the TARDIS and can confirm that one of the space stabilisers is on the blink: we have 40 spaces available and not the previously mentioned 80 - that was a bit of a mix up as the person was trying to organise a CCG event at the same time.

Anyway - we have 40 lovely tickets for this event and, erm, 29 have gone already.

Better get in quick!!!

MAD3 is a GO!!

Good evening everyone.

We are delighted to inform you that MAD3 will be going ahead as planned on Saturday 5th October 2013.

And we will also be trying out a new venue at The Games Shop in Aldershot. This particular venue can hold up to 80 gamers across 3 floors! I know - impressive numbers.

We've also managed to lower the ticket price for this event to £10 which whilst it does not include lunch does, I'm sure you'll agree, offer excellent value for money for a full day of 40K gaming!

As we move in to 2014 we have plans to go a little bit nomadic as we have a few different venue possibilities around the M3/M4 corridor: namely Cardiff, Bristol, Calne, Bath and the aforementioned Aldershot. Each offers a different size location so we should be able to have nice cosy affairs and large smash n grab affairs throughout the year.

There's a good possibility of more than 4 events in a year from VonWar as we move forward but let's not count our Helchickens just yet eh? Let's get MAD3 up and running first and then see what the future holds.

We're back! More excited than ever to run these events for everyone and we thank you all for your patience whilst we get ourselves sorted out.

Look for information on MAD3 ticket sales later tonight!

Coming Soon

Getting excited now!

After lots of work behind the scenes expect a positive announcement within the next few days regarding MAD 3.

And we are hard at work negotiating our way forward for 2014 at the same time.

We're not dead yet: in fact I might have finally made a leadership test when called on!

VonWar Update 2013

As the majority of you will most likely be aware Triple Helix has closed their Gaming Hall with immediate effect. They have a statement detailing the reasons behind this on their website so by all means have a gander.
One of the major factors that contributed to our starting up the VonWar events was having a ready made venue with tables and scenery all in one place. As we’re not a club we have no regular income that allows us to purchase tables, boards and scenery of our own (let alone store it) so the one stop shop was ideal. At the same time as the above my personal time has been hugely impacted by an increase in work responsibilities and travel plus fun and games with family. 
With the loss of the venue we have to take stock and our first decision is what to do with the already planned events for 2013. We have decided that Vonpocalypso on April 20th will be our final event to be held in conjunction with Triple Helix. It is scheduled to be held at the Triple Helix premises and should we hear differently we will of course be in touch with the entrants.
Attrition 2013 scheduled for July has been cancelled.
So you’re now expecting me to say that this is the end for VonWar right? I certainly hope not as I really enjoy putting these events together. It is however the realisation that a single event a year is probably the way forward in the short-term with a longer-term plan to review what we want to do once the dust settles.
We have a possible venue in Calne that we’re investigating and our aim is to see about running  MAD 2013 out of that venue towards the end of this year (October/November). Ongoing we’ll see but continue to watch this space as we progress any plans.
I want to thank each and every one of you for coming along and supporting VonWar during the last couple of years: it is very much appreciated and our events are made by you.

 See you all at Vonpocalypso and I look forward to seeing what the future has in store for VonWar.
