Ive seen it pretty packed for events and weekends. Mostly it is pretty bare, but I think thats more due to location than anything...it is in the middle of nowhere afterall.

Still, the few regulars I have seen there tend to be around between tues and thrus most weeks...good for games/info if youre up that way.

I'm from Springfield, and may consider heading on up though. Of course, since I work a 9-5 job, will be hard during the week due to traffic, but later in the evenings or on the weekends, I'd definitely be up for heading up to the Battle Bunker. I've heard only good things about it, and it's the only place in the continental US where you can actually order Forgeworld stuff (without doing it online...cursed cards!).
"They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mold them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armor shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear."

Well, if you havent been able to figure it out yet...there are plenty of gamers between Quantico and Baltimore. Even better, most are willing to travel a bit to get a game in...even further if it turns to a good game. NCR is no a bad area for Warhammer of any flavor.

I live in Arlington, VA which is right next to D.C. so I'm not that far away but traveling is problematic for the moment, should be rectified later this summer.

If any of you close to D.C or Northern VA guy's are looking for a nice place then check out Eagle and Empire games in Alexandria VA located about 4 miles from the GW store in Springfield. If any of you can make it out there send me a PM I'd be happy to get some 40k in and introduce you to the local gamers in our area.

Eagle and Empire is a good location now that they moved to an easier access than their old store. The new place feels bigger too, which helps. Also remember for people to south and west, Game Parlor in Woodbridge and Chantilly respectively are good locations. For them, bring your own terrain and the tables are often available (in my experience anyway). There are the GW stores too of course, whether you like them or not, GW Springfield, and Potomac Mills are available for gaming.

Personally, I am amazed at the number of stores in the area with gaming space and decent atmosphere for a couple hours of gaming fun.

If you are a local of Richmond, Virginia or at least live close by, you may have heard the news that our local GW store at Stony Point is being shut down as of January 28th. Dammit.

Moving on.

We are trying to get together a gaming group to continue to game, meet, etc. Not sure where, or whatever...but feel free to PM me if you live near by. Thanks.

Hey Brother, a buddy and myself were looking for people to game with down here as well, we are currently doing most of our gaming around Lynchburg VA about an hour away. He and I will both be up in the stony point store on the 18th hanging out for a couple hours.

Im not sure where you are located but more people to game with is always a good thing.

There's a link to our upcoming gaming club. All locals (and all visitors!) are welcome to come play a game with us. Four tables, no charge, 40k preferably but there are some fantasy and bloodbowl players too...lots of different ages and mixes.

Stop "1337-speak"!

Everything written by GW and its subsidiaries (Black Library, Sabertooth Games, et al) is official, canon, and otherwise irrefutably part of the 40K universe.

And it's all lies, damn lies, and misinformation.

I go to Leesburg Hobbies and Collectibles in Leesburg VA (bout 40 minutes from DC).

We've also got a GW moving into town very shortly.

Saddly there is a lack of shops and groups in the Abingdon/Glade Springs area. If you dont mind the drive there is Dwayne's World in Kingsport, TN. I know several of the players there and they are a good lot. and in the other direction you got Game Quest, played there once, nice people. But as I drive truck for a living I dont get to play much ^_^

Hey! I used to live in Abingdon! Yeah, there isnt much down there as far as gaming goes.... but I did notice in the back of a recent White Dwarf that they list a store there now. Dont know what its like as I've not been there or if its even still open... White Dwarf lists it as G2K Games down on Main Street. IF you stop by, can you let me know what the store is like? I'm rather curious.

Maybe I should ask about myself too. I just recently moved to Warrenton VA; is there any gaming in the local area or is Fredericksburg/Chantilly still my best bet for games?
