Welcome to our club page. First a few words about the name "Warmancer". Years ago I attended a Games Workshop Grand Tournament in Baltimore. Several gaming clubs made their presence known by having club t-shirts and individual diorama that linked together. One club in particular left an impression on me, the Warmongers (from NJ?). I named our club the warmancers after combining the words wargamers and necromancer/neuromancers to signify the art of wargaming.

Our club was born out of desire and out of necessity. Desire because after months of wargaming at the GW Stony Point mall in Richmond, it became obvious our love of the game and the pleasure of gaming with a few other like minded individuals. Our club was also born out of necessity because as we all now know, GW Stony Point is closing as of Jan 28. These two considerations just happened to occur within a few weeks of each other. Providential almost.

I hope our club will bring us many pleasurable and memorable moments in our future. But for now, we have work to do to get our club organized and started. Our core games to start with will be GW games: Lord of the Ring, Warhammer 40k, and Warhammer Fantasy Battle. I personally also hope to stimulate interests in 2 Specialist Games: Battlefleet Gothic (40k spaceships) and Warmaster (grand scale Fantasy).

Best Gaming Wishes,
