The end of October saw the arrival of Frontlines 2 to The Outpost in Sheffield. It’s been a few months in the making and as my first time organizing an event like this it was a learning curve but in the end it turned out to be a great day!

Needless to say the game was very interesting and captured in its entirety by the good chaps over at SteamForged which then had a commentary added to it by the players themselves.

For the past 2 weeks I have been working my butt off getting a shop in sheffield up and running, what kind of shop you may ask? Well a Wargames store of course! Ladies and gentlemen welcome to The Outpost. Continue reading →
