Board In Brum is a tabletop gaming venue and retail store selling tabletop and board games. We have been open since the end of Apr 2018 and we are loving it.
We also have 26 6’x4’ gaming tables, complete with various eras of scenery so you can pop down anytime for a game. If you don’t have an opponent you can always join
the Board In Brum community page on Facebook to find one.
Inside this year’s General’s Handbook, you’ll find…
New Open Play Rules:
Skies of Slaughter: Take the fight to the air with high-flying battles amidst the clouds. These rules were previously published in White Dwarf, including five battleplans (called Skybattles), new warscrolls for using flying monsters and engines of war in Skies of Slaughter, and campaigns to link your games together.
