From a tiny town in Surrey called Windlesham, although hopefully soon to be moving to Bath for university - I'll update here if that happens. For now though, still stuck in gloomy little Windlesham.
Local GW (if you could call it 'local') is GW Woking, and if the same guy still manages it (been a while since my last visit) it should still be possible to play Inq on a Thursday evening if I recall correctly...that seems to be the only day when people can indulge in the old Specialist Games.
I've not played Inq yet sadly, but itching to give it a go, one day.

Just to follow through on my promise, I have now relocated to Bath for university. Been here since September, except for 3 weeks over Christmas. So I guess my local GW is now Bath, although I hardly ever leave my lair except for lectures, sooo....

Don't know if mine's updated, but I'm currently playing at:
The Surrey Spartans - located between Coulsdon and Netherne-on-the-hill at Reigate Priory FC grounds (rented sundays and wednesdays).
Near Croydon, which is sorta kinda near london (I'm within the M25).

This is probably a long shot but I live in the Netherlands, close to Amsterdam. Anyone else in this area?

Hello everyone,

Very very slowly getting back in to this and more keen to play 28mm rather than 54mm (simply as its easier with the scenery!)

But my local GW is GW Swindon, although I play mostly at Firestorm Games in Cardiff with 3 other players (who are not members of this yet!)

Trying to get them to start playing though!

Anyone else frequent Firestorm in Cardiff?

Greenstuff_Gav and PrecinctOmega are in that rough area and have both done 28mm stuff - they're a bit out of the game at the moment, but they could possibly be talked into some games if you contacted them.
S.Sgt Silva Birgen: "Good evening, we're here from the Adeptus Defenestratus."
Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

Hi I am based in SW London Surrey. I used to love inquisitor when it first came out and would love to get back into it post COVID.

I see some people have said Surrey and Croydon although these were a couple of years ago now, are you all still playing and if so is it at 28mm or 54mm?

If you're near enough, try the Surrey Spartans - it's my local gaming club, and I'm a 54mm player, but can also play 28mm.

I'm probably the only other =][= gamer that I know of, at least at 54mm.
28mm is unknown as I've not heard any of the regulars discuss it with interest.

Plenty of RPG games/gamers available though, so who knows if enough interest could be pulled together?

Ah ok, hopefully we can get some interest.

To be honest I havenít played in years, but at least lockdown gives me some time to try and get a little band together. Awful hard to get anything that isnít excessively expensive on the bay though

I'm currently South London based, though not as far South as Surrey/Croydon, and may get back into the game at some point when we can be sure it's safe to gather...however, that looks like it could still be years!  I'm pretty much in the same boat as you, in that I obsessed over the game when it first came out before eventually wandering off for a couple of decades.  I'm more interested in playing again than I was this time last year, but whether I have enough time and energy for it in practice remains to be seen really.  The related fiction is what I love most of all, and writing is a much cheaper hobby than table-top gaming, if a little on the anti-social side...

Model-wise, 54mm is definitely the way to go IMO, although you could potentially make the same characters in both that and 28mm if you really wanted to maximise possible games.  28mm isn't the way most people play but there's definitely a notable minority out there who prefer it, and if you're looking to "convert" 40K players, sometimes it helps if they can use their existing bits box to cobble together a cheap and cheerful warband for a test campaign.  With that said, I'd strongly discourage letting anyone use any Space Marines if you do go that way, however convenient it may seem at the time!

Personally I love the larger scale so much, I pretty much stopped buying 28mm models in general after Inquisitor was released. £20+ per model does seem like a lot when you're buying them, and that's me thinking back to what they cost before GW discontinued the range, but I'd be surprised if even a really lavish 54mm warband from eBay cost half as much money or took anywhere near as much time to paint as the average 40K army.  I'm sure it can be done on a shoestring if you've a keen eye for a bargain and a little bit of luck...or if you just ignore most of the OOP options and buy cheaper, more recently cast 54mm models from other companies, then whack on a few strategic purity seals. ;)
