Welcome to Warhammer

The Warhammer Club's original members from left: Leo H, Ty S, Iben K, Lucas M and Brendan P.

This term we have launched an exciting new extra-curricular club for Year 8 students. 'Warhammer' is a tabletop strategy game which has fascinated devoted fans of all ages for over 30 years.

Warhammer is a game of fantasy battles where players are in command of armies of valiant humans and elves or a variety of monstrous creatures, which they have built and painted themselves to create a truly personalised experience.

Players collect forces of miniature plastic models, all with different stats and abilities, and use them to play out clashes on a sci-fi or fantasy themed tabletop battlefield. They also write creative stories based on their characters and battle scenarios, which provides a fully customised experience with multiple possibilities. These stories are published in the club newsletter, which is produced by current members.

Warhammer Club sessions are held each Monday after school from 3.30pm-4.30pm and during lunch time. Year 8 students who are interested in becoming involved should initially speak to Mr Wheatley.
