Pretty similar in my club - some members, including me, sometimes turn up not to play a game but just to see what's going on, have a chat, paint figures, organise armies (it is a permanent set up, so many armies are stored there), sort out terrain items and even paint the premises. I've even had a couple of solo games down there when everyone else has been involved in other projects. Pretty much anything goes.

Coffee/tea making is catered for, as is bring your own Soviet hip flask.

Whilst we have tea and coffee, that is it. Even then the kitchen is down some steps and being crippled it is hard for me to negotiate them. Therefore I usually have to rely on there to get it for me.

We never have an after club meeting in the pub (which when I joined I had assumed would be something that automatically happened.) as people want to get home to their other halves I am told. I know that my wife expects me home by just after ten as well and we had an incident where I was late one time and it caused a big argument in which my continued attendance at the club was in doubt until other club members interceded on my behalf.

I'll add people who never paint their models but expect to use them. :)

I'm very happy to provide toys to people who don't have painted forces but don't just keep bringing unpainted/just undercoated models and want to play with them. They don't have to be great but make an effort as it's better than the deadly silver or black undercoated army - see my blog for examples of ok stuff, which IMO are good on the table top. Nothing spoiled the visual effect than unpainted models.

P.S. I am envious/in awe of the superb paint skills of some people as well - but that's a different item. I just can't get to that level of skill ;)

Tbh I've only ever known that to happen once at our club; a huge array of undercoated space orks (surprise, surprise).

I've seen a lot of unpainted armies in my time. Not good in my opinion either.mif it isn't painted then it isn't ready to be played with.
