A word on recent changes!

Just a quick heads up on recent changes to both the blog and the Facebook page. Over time the Facebook page has widened it's coverage to far more than just tactical wargames (though have no doubt, we still love tactical wargames) and now with the Blog and the many varied things I want to be able to cover the name Tactical Wargames just didn't fit any more. It really didn't represent either the Facebook page or the blog and I think could give out the wrong message. So I've taken the big step to change the name of both the FB page and the Blog. After a lot of thought and a waste paper basket full of scribbled out names I've settled on 'A Wargamers Needful Things'. I'm sure many of you will see where I got the inspiration from. For those who don't know there is a Stephen King book called Needful Things about a shop that opens and every customer finds something they just can't live without, however to be able to acquire said item they have to commit all sorts of atrocious crimes! Obviously I'm not wanting you all to go on a crime spree and feature on Most Wanted, but as I want to cover as many things your average wargamer, i.e yourself likes or is interested in I thought it was an apt fit.
Also we have a couple of new headings on the Blog. First is 'Intel' which will be a place where you'll find articles of interest covering a wide range of topics. We also have 'Incoming' which is where I will keep you all informed of what's coming up sometime in the nearish future:)
I'd also like to thank my previous team members for all the help they've given me during their time with TW but as we all know times move on, so I'm currently getting a new team together for the new name A Wargamers Needful Things who I'll introduce to you soon on the 'GHQ' page.
One last thing, as the Blog is in it's infancy please stick with us while we iron out any kinks. A new header needs to be designed for starters! Go to the Facebook page to enter a competition where you can win £25 Steam voucher for a winning header design for the blog!
Thanks for reading
P.S I do hope you all like the new name! Also please pass the message on that the blog has a new website address!
