| Battle Tech Grinder|
A progressive free-for-all BattleMech combat. Players begin with a light BattleMech, equipped with the most basic weapons. When that unit is destroyed in combat, the player re-enters the Grinder with a more powerful BattleMech equipped with more advanced weapons and new equipment, and this continues until the player commands the most advanced and deadly units in the game. Players can play as long as they wish, leave, and return during the scheduled event listing if they wish due to the continuous nature of the Grinder.

| The Battle of Marignano 13-14th June 1515 |
Two years on from the Battle of Novara (which we recreated last year), we find the Swiss once more launching a mass surprise attack on the newly arrived French forces, hoping to capture the Duchy of Milan. With the Swiss arriving towards the end of the day, the battle was inconclusive on day one, and was restarted the next morning.
A bloody and hard fought battle, the Swiss loss on the day saw the end of their dominance as the finest infantry in Europe.
This battle features the Swiss army almost completely composed of infantry, together with a few Milanese allies, against a force with large numbers of Landsknecht infantry, dressed in their usual outrageous fashions.
Together with the wonderfully attired French knights, flags galore and new camps, this is a visually rich recreation with lots of new painting for everyone to enjoy. Stephen Lindsey hosts this Renaissance battle in 15mm using modified DBR rules for 8 players.

Legions of Steel 2nd Edition is a fast paced, squad level, map tile based, miniatures combat game set in the not so distant future. Originally released in 1992, the new edition is ready now to be played.
Save humanity from a siege of mechanical horror. Play an elite group of Commandos in high tech powered armour on their missions to destroy the base complexes of the Overlord computer. Meanwhile, your opponent maneuvers their horde of robotic minions commanded by ten feet of raw terror, the dreaded Mark 1 Assault Fiend.
Mechanics are simple. Only six sided dice are required to quickly resolve firefights, but you need more than luck to survive. With Blasters, Deadbolt Launchers, Kinetic Pulse grenades and the Napalm-X Flame Weapon on the field of battle, tactical considerations are many. Before you can out-fight your opponent, you must first out-think them.
