Welcome!

Nick the Quartus Dominus The late Nick Slope, immortalised as Quartus Dominus for Footsore Miniatures' Gangs of Rome

Wycombe Warband is the wargaming club serving the High Wycombe and Beaconsfield area in south Buckinghamshire. We play all sorts of historical wargames, from ancient to modern periods, in different scales and using a wide variety of rules sets. If you're new to wargaming, but think you might be interested, click on on the left to find out more about what it's all about. If you're thinking about joining us, read on to find out more about the club.

Special Tribute to Nick

Club member Nick Slope, who sadly passed away in December last year, has been immortalised in white metal in the form of a 28mm figure of a Roman Senator, brilliantly sculpted by the talented Paul Hicks, cast by Footsore Miniatures and included in their Gangs of Rome game. Few wargamers ever receive this kind of accolade and if anyone deserved it, it is Nick.

What's Happening Now?

Eye of the Raven Campaign Season 3 comes to an end

Season 3 of the club's Saga: Dark Age Skirmishes campaign is now drawing to a close, with Cnut of the Danish Vikings currently in prime position. You can read the stories of each of the Factions on their own web pages as we continue to monitor their progress through this epic journey.

Saga: Iron Man

While we're on the subject of Saga, Saga-meister Rich Keenan will be visiting the club to run a one-day Saga: Iron Man event for us on Saturday 3rd February. All places are currently taken. It looks to be a fun day where players will get the chance to use unfamiliar warbands from The Crescent & The Cross and Aetius & Arthur using some beautifully painted figures that Rich will provide for the day.

Blood Bowl

The club's occasional Blood Bowl League continues with Neil adding games to his blog blogging games. Blood Bowl banter continues as usual on the club's Facebook page so do join in if you're interested!

Frostgrave

Distant rumblings have been heard from enthusiastic players that an occasional Frostgrave campaign may also be on the cards. Early days yet but if you're interested in playing please let Andy know so that you can be included!

Vanquish 2018

It's time to think about what we are going to do at our local show Vanquish 2018, in May at Bourne End Community Centre. We're looking forward to participating again!

What Do We Do?

We try our best to make sure that a range of different games is always available so that people can play something they enjoy. If you have a game and want to play it then there is sure to be someone willing to give it a go or more likely already a fan. We're currently playing a lot of Saga, Flames of War and X-Wing, but we like to play a lot of games and will have a go at almost anything.

Above all, we set out to make our games enjoyable for everyone to play, and encourage people to take part. Whether you're a new recruit or a seasoned veteran, whether you're young or old, you'll always be welcome to join in, so come along. Have fun pushing some figures around and rolling some dice!

The school is easy to find, has plenty of space for games, free car parking and a subsidised bar that is open most evenings.

Where and When Do We Meet?

We meet every week on a Thursday night from 7.00pm onwards, and occasional Saturdays. Making a day of it allows us to host big battle games, play several different games, or run shorter games several times throughout the day. In addition, we also have occasional wargames evenings and other fixtures. See our calendar of events for up to date details of what's planned over the weeks ahead.

We meet at the National Film & Television School, Station Road, Beaconsfield, HP9 1LG. Tel. 01494 671234. If you can't find where we are in the building tell the security guard you're a wargamer and they'll give you directions.

I'm Interested - Who Do I Contact?

You can contact us at wycombewarband@yahoogroups.co.uk or HQ@wycombewarband.org if you want to get more information. You're very welcome to just turn up one night but if you've not been before and intend to use the car park please let us know in advance so that we can make sure a space is available.
