I realize this might be a bit late if we take the original date of posting into account but go and take a look at Warhammergenerals you will find a lot of SA players and quite a few from the Cape. Best of luck bud.
The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

And if you can carry a huge one, even BETTER!!!!

You know you're a Templar when you throw Neophytes at the enemy instead of grenades, and then charge with your Power Helmet and win the assault by 3 headbutts.

Must be a change going from the UK to back home. I was there last year and the prices on minis alone!!!! Something like R480 for a box of tac marines at Slaters in East London.

"It is not our battle barges and bolters, our lascannons and melta bombs that will bring us victory. These are merely devices of destruction. It is our will to wield them without compromise, to unleash righteous devastation in the Emperor's name, which will bring us victory. Hate these foes! Hate them with every fibre of your being. Hate them in your hearts and despise them in your souls. Purge them with flamer and sword and be happy at their deaths." - Chaplain Cassius

Heya guys.
So I just moved up to Joburg and I was wondering what my options are for hobby stores? Haven't played in years but I would really like to get back into it.
Anywhere you guys recommend?

There is a good club called Warzone or Warfair or something in JHB where lots of the guys play. Otherwise jump on warhammer generals and you should easily be able to find some one or somewhere to play.

Right now..Gaming in Durban is buying out dated white dwarfs from CNA and trying to make do with normal clay(instead of the modelling type).
Apparently there is only one official club down here as well...
Sad... ;)
So,my friends and I are putting together a club(Gamer-freak,another space marine player and a tau player..and myself of course)
So...We have a club made up of four people,three are space marine players and a tau player....
We need to bring Warhammer to Durban with a shock!
It doesn't help that our registered hobby shop only has some ancient bottles of citadel paints that look like they have turned to dust in the bottles... :lol:
Yeah...that is gaming here in Durban... ;)
Any Durbanites wanting to join the club,PM me :P

You guys should try get into contact with Nigel and Dante of the CT battlebunkers. We now have 4 Battlebunker hobby stores in CT and its growing fast. They are franchising the concept too, so - worthwhile having a chat. If you only have one store there, means tehres room for expansion.

Sup guys I live in Joburg myself, and theirs a gaming club by Galloulies I think, and at Northgate Corner shopping centre there's a general hobby shop that sells quite a bit of 40k ( mostly smurfs of course but have been expanding their selection) and then right opposite them is a gaming club.
Hope I helped any potential gamers

I think most of the guys in Durbs know me.. Was feeling a bit nostalgic going thru these posts. From 4 people to... Well... A couple dozen and new players joining every week/month, it's been a trying ordeal, but war gaming is finally starting to grow here, despite GWs outrageous prices and the state of the Rand.
