Wargaming clubhouses – Tin Soldiers of Antwerp

The Tin Soldiers of Antwerp is a long-time miniature wargaming club in Antwerp, Belgium. In my last post, I showed a few photos and gave a link  to Patrick Roover‘s photos of a 28mm Gettysburg wargame that used various scenarios from my Enduring Valor: Gettysburg in Miniature scenario books. These games were organized and GM’ed at TSOA by Andre Van Gils, who was kind enough to e-mail me and send some details on the game.

Note the impressive clubhouse and the huge gaming layout! The twin tables used for this scenario are a whopping 12 feet by 18 feet in dimension, and there is still plenty of room for the gamers to mingle on the sides, as can be seen from the above photograph. Note the ACW flags on the hardwood paneled wall!

With plenty of close-in parking and a large interior space, this is one of the most impressive gaming clubs I have seen, and perhaps on my next trip to Belgium I will find the time to stop by and say hello. Organized games are held every Friday night, and at other times as schedules allow. The city of Antwerp is a fun place to visit, and now I have even more reason to do so!

Johnny Reb Gettysburg game photos from Patrick Roovers!

The Battle of Gettysburg is refought in miniature. My first two scenario books (Enduring Valor: Gettysburg in Miniature) offer more than 20 different scenarios to refight portions of Gettysburg in regimental level. These popular books are available from Marek/Janci Design and from leading Internet gaming retailers.

I met Belgian wargamer Patrick Roovers at the 2007 Fall-In miniature wargaming convention in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He stopped by to watch my Johnny Reb 3 game, along with long-time JRGS member and gamer Dennis Cunningham. Patrick was kind enough this week to send me a link to his photo gallery of a recent Johnny Reb game his group ran at their club house. Check out the photos, and pay attention to the gaming venue! These guys have a great location for their gaming efforts!
